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.

Currently survivors are wiped out by bandits and military, then military is wiped out by infected and bandits. Military AI is ass, they do not defend their locations at all. Similar to YourGuru i took over alot of the map for the faction only to get backdoored by a few small groups of infected

I have found a system :Military beats zombies, Bandits destroy military, and survivors also beat military. bandits and survivors are equal.

The Military faction has a really retarded AI system. It is said to be good at holding sites but I don't see many soldiers actually holding anything; they just leave the sites completely open for other factions to take over. This is irony as its finest. This one time I was playing as Military and had already conquered the southern half of the map, but while moving up to the north, I saw that literally nobody was defending the south and therefore the zombies began flanking and taking over all the southern areas that had taken me hours to conquer. I eventually gave up because I didn't feel like doing everything myself again. What a waste of time just because of some stupid AI. I don't know about other factions but it is clear to me that the military AI needs to be improved.

Nice to see that this is the only mod that has been Running With Updates for almost four years straight on the Workshop.
