Is there a way to modify throwing damage or am I out of luck?
All of a sudden I'm having problems with zombies that throw weapons, initially they did enough damage to be a threat but now they instantly kill me! I don't really feel like this was intended.

Yep, this seems unintended. Throwing deals more damage at higher levels. It's basically the only way I ever die, and often it's unavoidable.

People have been complaining about this since day 1. They simply do not care.

A walker with a butter knife is more of a threat than a butcher. Sigh...

I barely have problems with throwing weapon zombies. I've only been killed by them about 5 times and I've completed the game. Are you on hard difficulty?

No, normal. I've been doing some reading on it and it seems to be all down to luck(RNG). You could go 50 hours and not see a thrower or you could run into 3 groups in a row of nothing but throwers. Guess I'll just cross my fingers next time I see a knife zombie.

Ok, just making sure. I'm on normal too and I've only seen 1 knife thrower in about an hour.

It is all down to luck. You can dodge them if you see them, but the animation can look like their regular attack and is easy to miss if there are lots of zombies around. If they attack you from anywhere else, there's no way to defend against it. Always make sure you keep your eyes on *all* the walkers I guess.

I did not think DI riptide had a difficulty set other than it's preset standard gameplay.

Yeah those throwing Zombies are such a pain. They're my top priority to kill first if I see one among a group of other zombies. It's LAME when they get me from half across the room with their thrown object, it's pretty much my number 1 only cause of death >:O
