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 imbalance will be caused by messing with values in quick match.

Can this be played on Moorland Apocalypse? :)

I can understand there being reasons behind not allowing people to change the faction population numbers, and to a lesser extent, faction accuracy, for the campaign. But why can't starting xp/rp and xp/rp gain not be changed? Base gains are atrocious, especially considering how much weapons cost and the death penalties.

Why is player survivability the only parameter that can be changed? It's useless due to the way the health system is set up for this mod.

Please allow players to tune the difficulty a bit, at least.

Super fun!

Only frustration is the lack of 'standing guard' that military has. once survivors and bandits are wiped, there's so much back capping from zombies that it's only ever a ring-a-mole across the map.

sometimes doing the paratrooper reinforcements keeps a group around for security, but by the time you've gotten one side of the map, the otherside is back to being zombie controlled. So very frustrating.

What is the difference between this and the Running With Zombies campaign in the base game?
