[edit] Blood

[edit] Bleeding

Blood Symptoms: Blood will spurt out of the player, which can be seen by other survivors and the player themselves in third person.

Messages: Details anzeigen
Causes: Bleeding can occur after:
  • Being hit by Zombies
  • Being eaten by Zombies
  • Falling
  • Getting shot
  • Getting hit by an explosive
  • Having a player run into you
Treatment: This condition is cured with a Bandage. A bandage can be used on yourself or on other players using the action menu. It is recommended that you have at least two bandages in your inventory at all times.

Bleeding will sometimes stop on its own, without the need for a bandage. If you continue to bleed, it will not stop until you reach 2000 blood or apply a bandage. Gain "healthy/healing" status by eating and drinking enough food to regain your blood levels.


[edit] Unconscious

' Symptoms: A black screen with the words "You are unconscious," and the inability to see, hear, or move.
Messages: Details anzeigen
Causes: Causes of being Unconscious:
  • Dropping below 500 blood.
  • Having a shock value higher than your current blood.
  • Logging in with the Shock condition.
Treatment: An Epi-Pen or Defibrillator will fix this condition instantly, although defibrillators require a Battery to operate. However, if the player has low blood they may head straight back into unconsciousness. It is therefore advised to bandage and fix all other conditions before the player is treated. Remember that both treatments have to be used by another survivor, you cannot give yourself consciousness.
