Be the Zombie update
Be the Zombie is getting a Survivor Sense and items update for an improved PvP experience!

Thanks to our amazing community members who have been introducing multiple tweaks and balance changes to the mode, Be the Zombie has been getting continuously better throughout the years. We’ve been regularly implementing the fixes you asked for, and this upcoming update will release the last round of them.

Now you can play with the Survivor Sense even more efficiently, surprising enemies with your enhanced ability. We also decided to remove some items from the Be the Zombie mode to make sure your PvP experience is fair and balanced, and keeps bringing fun to everyone.

Survivor-Sense spit (rework) Name: Survivor-Sense spit ⇒ Concussive Spit
  Description: After a short delay, knocks down any enemy caught up in the radius, stunning them for a brief period. Survivors can free themselves from a Pounce if they were to be Pounced while under the effects of this spit. Concussive Spit also interacts with environmental objects, blowing up the structure.
  Spitsmashing with Concussive spit will disable enemy Survivor-Sense, blocking the enemy from tracking you on the minimap.
