Flatline Mode - Traps
An activated trap will last for 60 seconds!
Zombies killed by traps are counted as kill while zombies that are getting stuck and dies not.
Traps can be used one time only so think carefully when to activate.
There are two types of traps available in Flatline mode atm:

Fire traps are available on each map. There is only one propane tank scattered randomly over the map. The trap can be activated once you find the propane tank. There are red dots near the trap which indicates where the fire will come out and burn everything on contact to crisp :)

Generators are available on each map. There are 5 batteries scattered randomly over the whole map. Finding all of them will power up the generator and the trap can be activated. You can see on the generator how much batterie you need to find in order to activate it.

The nearby fences will turn into an electrical trap when activated. Be careful though! Zombie and players will get killed instantly by walking on it!

Good tactic example: Gather a bunch of riot zombies in Montclair until the end and activate the trap :)
Trader FAQ Section & Arsenal Unlocklist
Where is the trader?
There are 2-3 trader locations on the two fresh released flatline maps. One of those rooms only opens for 90 sec. when you beat a wave. Use your phone are follow the footsteps to reach the next trader while on prepare time. New weapons will be unlocked if you can survive more waves.

Can I buy stuff there?
You can't buy stuff there but you can stock up with the available weapons and items in that arsenal room for free :). Tools that can unlock certain areas will spawn on certain waves, so keep an eye on those items!

OMG! I can take us much ammo as I want? Really?
Yes you can but every dropped ammo will get wiped out when the next wave starts! Additionally every weapon/item that you drop will get wiped out during the prepare time.

Flatline Beta Buglist/Issues
  • Flaline is pretty unbalanced atm. I recommend you to play on normal difficulty first. Extreme difficulty seems to be impossible atm. There is no balance between 1 or 2 players so if you play alone you have to survive like you would have played with 2 players. Head to the "Wave - Overview" sections for more information.

  • If you are unlucky you might get a SIG with low ammo on you first wave. The lowest ammo I got was 76 but I need to kill 60 zombies which means you need an accuracy of ~73% to beat the first wave.

  • You can't pick up dropped melee weapons and nailguns anymore if you drop it while on prepare time. (Does not happens on the beginning though)

  • Melee is glitched in flatline mode and does not connect the brainbox if someone tries to strike the head.

  • The pathway showing you to the second trader on Campwhitner is glitched.

  • Joining a late game does not display the correct wave number while you are being a spectator for the first time.

  • Joining while on prepare time does not let you respawn as a survivor. You need to wait until the next prepare time for respawn.

  • First aid kit and light pocket that are spawned at the beginning will get wiped out when the wave starts if you don't pick them up.
Wave Overview - Zombie Speed
What does zombie speed do?
This new feature in flatline mode makes a certain percent of zombies moving on a certain speed depending on the current wave.

The speed lvl range is 0-8, where 0 is the slowest and 8 is the fastest.
Difficulty and player numbers does not affect the zombie speed atm.

Wave 1
50 % Zombies + Speed lvl 1 30 % Zombies + Speed lvl 4 20 % Zombies + Speed lvl 7
Wave 2
50 % Zombies + Speed lvl 2 30 % Zombies + Speed lvl 5 20 % Zombies + Speed lvl 8

Thx you =)

Thank you very much for the guide! I do not know what 5 battery for the generator can be used on a map Cf_Campwitner. The author tried to Hyde and deserves a positive evaluation!
CCL sama  [author] Apr 30, 2016 @ 1:07am 
Nothing has changed since the last update. You need to pick it up in the safe room. CF_Montclair spawns it on wave 6.

I didn't get a extinguisher the second wave....

Thx! I'm glad it helped :)

Great guide, this helped me out a lot. And I was wondering what the hell these batteries were, haha.
