Running with the Dead

Welcome to Running with the Dead! This is an extensive overhaul mod that changes the game to a post apocalypse survival wasteland crawling with zombies and warring factions. Each faction offers a unique way of playing the game through unique changes to their health, speed, spawn rates, and armory!

  • Because of how unique each faction build is for this mod, you can only play this on campaign to allow unique scripting! Loads of new changes will come as this mod continues to be worked on.
    • The survivors are a fine middle between all the factions. They are well rounded with their speed, health, and spawn rates. They sport a number of custom made weapons, and civilian rifles designed to maintain accuracy and conserve ammo.

    • The bandits are violent and reckless. So in turn, they have the lowest health of any faction, but also move the fastest and are the most numerous of the humans. They are loaded up with an abundance of automatic rifles and SMGs. These guns, unlike their survivor brothers, fire quickly, but not as accurately. They are the only faction to have a flamethrower in stock, which tops off their mastery of close quarter combat.

    • The military are the highest skilled and best geared, but lack any real numbers and will mainly hold a defensive position, than viciously attempt to conquer land. They wear very durable military vests but suffer in speed as a result. They also carry a number of very accurate assault rifles and powerful equipment which might prove valuable to pick up if the other factions can find them.

    • The infected are the most numerous and overwhelm their enemy by sheer numbers and strength. Be careful however, as the longer the infection has a grip on the host, the more powerful they will get! (And the more grotesque they will look)

      Huge Shoutout to:
      The Soldier who made most of these assets,
      Tremozl who took those assets to make this mod
      and JackMayol who balanced and patched the mod!
      And the Ellygree, my rock.
    This mod can be played in campaign! Campaign will allow unique scripting for unique features that will be seen with the next few updates!

    If you absolutely want to play this game in quick match, copy the content from:
    C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\workshop\content\270150\677995637\media\packages
    and paste it in:
    C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\common\RunningWithRifles\media\overlays
    This is still made to be played ONLY on moorland trenches, and I will not respond to complaints from other maps or imbalanced caused by messing with values in quick match.

So, I played this campaign as the zombies and found that playing as the zombie faction is extremely underwhelming. My AI combatants only seemed interested in forming perimeters around the enemy zone and rarely would I see zombies actually assaulting. Most of the time I had to go in solo or I'd have to wait for my fellow zombies to catch up as most of the ones that followed me were slightly crippled. I had the most trouble with the military and the bandits as the military units were VERY tanky and could take 2-3 heavy hits just to kill a single unit while the bandits had weapons that would either knock me on my ass or kill me in a few shots. I eventually won the zombie campaign by letting the AI factions fight it out (bandits won easily) and then slowly abuse the AI's defense strategy by attacking bases that were barely occupied, but like I said... I was usually doing this by myself.
I plan on playing as other factions next to see if they are also as difficult.

military "lacking any real numbers" :( they literally steamroll everyone because it takes 90 shots to kill them and they come in packs of 20

Too bad you have to have another human faction in order to play. I would love to just be able to choose a human faction and infected to see how long I could last under a zombie only seige.

Can you still sell off enemy weapons to unlock them?
