Zombies throwing weapons instantly kills me
I never had a problem in Dead Island with weapon throwing Zombies, but if a Zombie hits me with something in Riptide I am dead. It's ridiculus.
What can I do to avoid this? I'm playing a lvl 51 Xian Mei.

Yeah, I know. I'm having the same problem too!
At first I didn't even know what killed me!

There is a long technical reason why this happens, related to AI weapons, human weapons, relative hit point scales between zombies and players, and what happens to a weapon when the zombie drops it...

Altogether though, the easiest way to avoid this behavior is to watch the zombies approaching you, as the throw animation is fairly distinct, and then to sidestep... A or D on the keyboard. Once they start the throw animation they have picked an aim point, and the easiest way to get away from it is to move to the side.
Thanks for the explaination! Unfortunately most of the time they get me when I'm fighting other Zombies and don't notice them.

I don't understand why this wasn't fixed long ago.

This happened to me in both the original DI and riptide, it's really annoying.

Sidestepping seems to be the only solution and it's not a reliable one considering the "Inner-Ninja" zombies that sometimes get the drop on you.
