Contagion - Update July 31st :: Biotec, StoneCreek, New Melee System, Decapitation, and more!
As promised we've released our much anticipated Zombie Panic: Source Biotec Remake (Escape & Hunted Game-Modes), Stone Creek (Escape Game-Mode but in many ways Survival gameplay) the most popular Workshop map now in our Official rotation, our new Melee System that is not only much more user friendly but now with bladed weapons can more than cut off limbs but now decapitate zombies as well!

Of course we updated all existing maps with improvements, optimization, bug fixes, and exploits being removed.

Once again seek out the experimental vaccine that may hold the key humanities very survival! But it would seem that Biotec security was unable to either handle the horde invading... or was it from within?

With the most subscribers on Workshop and our promise to bring the communities favorites into the Official rotation (with permission of author) we're happy to include the very claustrophobic, classic survival like Escape map "Stone Creek" in our Official list of maps!

Check out what went out in our July update!

July 31st Update - Changelog:
  • Added new map Biotec (Escape & Hunted Game-Modes)
  • Added new map by popularity from Workshop Stone Creek (Escape Game-Mode)
  • Added gasmask objective item that prevents harmful chemicals from affecting player
  • Added gasmask voice muffling for survivors
  • Added Keycard objective item for unlocking security doors
  • Added keycard entity system for mappers
  • Added Zombie Decapitation with bladed weapons (Kabar not included)
  • Updated Melee System (WIP for balance) with decapitation
  • Improved navigation mesh for all existing maps
  • Changes to networking system in an attempt to fix LAN related issues
  • Kill Cam with the above mentioned bladed weapons also decapitate zombies when using stealth kill
  • Fixed weapon holstering issues
  • Fixed exploits, issues, and bugs on all maps from bug reports by the community (Thank you!)
