Lol. That was funny. How would you set that up for the consoles though?

I loved playing Zombies in H2.

 

My 2¢.

 

Well, just like any custom, you'd need full cooperation from everyone. You'd hope putting "Zombie" in the server title would do it, but I'd also add something about setting your mic to team chat.

 

You'd have to turn off team balance. I'm hoping this would also allow you to switch teams at any time.

 

As a freebie, I'd allow full health so you could survive one frontal swipe (or "bite" in this case) but no health regeneration.  An attack from behind would be equal to a bite to the jugular, in which case, you're just fucked.

 

I'm thinking the humans would be American Assaults and the zombies would be Russian Engineers. This would allow the humans to get a visual heads up on where the "outbreak" is currently happening (not to mention being able to identify a zombie from a mile away). I'm wondering if allowing revives (or "cures") would be a fun twist as it would allow the baiting of survivors. Regardless, I think having the humans switch to paddles would be good. If you sneak up on a zombie, he deserves to be fried.

 

I'm also thinking that only zombies can use the sprint perk. Personally, I prefer the new school Snyder zombie whose cravings for brains give him crackhead-like abilities instead of Romero's "Down-meets-MS" flesh eaters.

 

Using TDM would mean that the maps would be smaller. Can you set the score limit to 12 (in a room of 13) to end the game? Otherwise, I could see this being fun even on maps like Conquest Metro and Grand Bazaar. When there's one survivor, the zombies take a flag to set the timer. (If the human set it, it'd give away his position.) This way, an end is in sight even with the campiest of campers.

 

Regular zombie rules of last human (win or lose) becomes the zombie for the next round.

Nice.  Looks like fun.  :) 

And yes, you'd have to do this with friends only and lock down your server to set up your custom settings.  I think those are great rules, n3rf.  I wonder if it could be done that way?
