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.

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

I think the only problem with this mod is that whenever I load a smaller map in quick game, even though I choose all 4 fractions to be available, sometimes one or two of them are just gone, they have no bases assigned so it just shows game over etc. It's like on some maps the mod doesn't give any base to 1 or 2 of 4 fractions so those just don't take part in the game. It's just 4 fractions and yet a map with 6 - 15 bases is not enough for all 4 to play, how is that possible? It works fine on "Iron Enclave" (15 bases) but on "Green Coast" (also 15 bases) one fraction never gets any base assigned... volvo pls fix lol cuz for now only like 3 maps work correctly with all fractions.

The mod won't show up in-game. In fact, I've never gotten a single mod I've subscribed to on the workshop to show up. Anybody able to help?

ive had about three rounds of this and each time the zombies ended up playing less and less of a roll as the game went on anyway you can buff them and make them more threatening?
