AoU Mode: Who are the undead?

The first Undead is chosen randomly among a pool of 10 players. The first Undead is allowed to use their primary weapon to kill a Survivor. Every survivor killed by the Undead converts them to the opposing faction. Their primary weapon is a knife. The Undead also gain a special ability which grants them a burst of movement speed for a short amount of time. The faction also has access to 1 throwing axe which results in an instant kill. They are hard to aim with though! The undead have infinite lives.

Tip: Teamup against pesky survivor players; you still have the same amount of health as a regular player so hording up can help you tank up some shots and ultimately get you close enough to land a kill!

AoU Mode: Who are the survivors?

Survivors are normal players trying to survive the hordes of the Undead. They have the same base movement speed and attack damage. Players get the same loadouts they had before and operator skills are allowed to be chosen at the start of every match. Predetermined equipment and perks are equipped. They are: Vulture, Amped and Restock; mainly aiding faster gameplay and spending less time reloading. The last survivor however, gets a set of special perks: they have increased health and also gain access to a Death Machine with limited ammunition.

Tip: Try to maintain highground! Since the Undead don’t have a way of shooting at you from afar (except their usually inaccurate axe,) it makes sense for survivors to stick to highground where they can easily see the Undead comming and shoot them from a mile away!
