Hi everyone who loves zombie mode!
I love the zombie mode too. One day, I thought that I want to know a tactics for going smoothly to the higher round at zombie mode when I was playing it. So at first, I investigated time taking for each round and the number of zombies as the basic information. I would like to report it here. I’m glad if you are interested in it.
Results and discussion
I investigated about 2 maps as samples.
Figure 1 shows time for each round until an only one zombie from a round start.
Map Shangri-la with 2 persons, my friend and me
Round 1R to 50R
Total time about 7 hours and 30 minutes
Average time for one round 8 minutes and 56 seconds
Tactics This map was advanced using normal weapons which are MPL and AK74u until 20R. From 21R to 30R, each zombie that 2 persons have was killed by flopper at the area with AK74u and the Fractalizer at the area with MPL. After 31R, the aggregated zombies were annihilated using the Fractalizer. My friend and I were at the place with AK74u and with MPL, respectively.
Comments I noticed that the zombie monkeys hardly work from near 15R. How was this situation in your case?
Figure 2 also shows time for each round until an only one zombie from a round start.
Map Call of the dead with 2 persons, my friend and me
Round 1R to 54R
Total time about 8 hours
Average time for one round 8 minutes and 43 seconds
Tactics This map was advanced using normal weapons which are MP5K and AK74u until 25R. From 26R to 33R, zombies were annihilated by Hyena Infra-dead. After 34R, Hyena Infra-dead and V-R11 Lazarus were used to annihilate zombies. The place was a front of the lighthouse.
Comments I noticed that some items appear from zombies annihilated using Hyena Infra-dead under very low probability. I also experienced some misfires of Hyena Infra-dead and Mustang&Sally. I don’t know if those are bugs.
For Fig. 1 and Fig. 2, each convex part means reviving and using mystery box to obtain the special weapons while we kill zombies.
Figure 3 is the data with which Fig. 1 and Fig. 2 were aligned. Both the zombie’s health and the number of zombies have a nonlinear increase with the increase in the round. I think that the nonlinear trend of Fig. 3 is mainly reflected to the number of zombies with the increase in round rather than the zombie’s health because the special weapons are used to annihilate zombies. The number of zombies that I calculated will be submitted on this forum soon by Duckcall00. Accuracy of the number was exemplified by this investigation. Figure 3 also says that the time taking for each round doesn’t depend on the map. The reason may be because the zombie’s health and the number of zombies have no change for each map.
Figure 4 shows time for killing one zombie by 2 persons. This was made using data of Fig. 1 and Fig. 2. This figure has 2 data which were actually measured and 1 datum which was calculated by a formula of a polynomial approximation obtained from some actual data. The formula is in good agreement with the 2 actual data. It is found that the velocity to kill zombies becomes fast with the increase in round. Although the number of zombies increases for round, as you know, the velocity becomes fast. I think that this may be because the appearance velocity of zombies becomes fast for round.
I investigated how much time each round takes. It was found that the time taking for each round doesn’t depend on the map when the special weapons were used. The nonlinear trend is reflected to a ratio of increase for the number of zombies with the increase in round. At this time, the average time for one round is almost the same between 2 maps. Using this data, a velocity to kill one zombie for each round was also investigated. It was found that the velocity becomes fast with the increase in the round. This may be related to the appearance velocity of zombies. I would like to think a tactics of each map for going smoothly to higher round using these results.
I want to measure the map with some traps and the hellhounds in the future.
I realize that my English skill is poor. I apologize when it is difficult for you to understand my report. But if this report is useful only a little for you, I’m happy.
