Test Server Update - Nov 7th

Greetings Survivors!

This patch is just the first patch planned for this week. Late this week we are looking to bring Badwater Canyon to Test - some servers will run Z1 and some will run Badwater Canyon, giving you the choice of maps. This update contains a number of improvements and fixes, as well as some critical anti-cheat updates and exploit fixes.

We request that you do not publicly post any exploitable bugs not reported fixed here. Send them to us privately (either via PM on reddit, PM on discord, or as a private ticket on Publicizing exploits doesn't help us fix them quicker than reporting them privately, but it does ensure widespread abuse and makes it harder to punish those who abuse these exploits.

  • Added firefighter outfits and firefighter zombies near the fire station

  • Improved NPC pathing and optimization

  • Fixed an issue where knocked down zombies would continue to pursue the player

  • Anti-cheat detection, logging, and prevention updates

These issues were fixed with this most recent patch (listed as known issues in the 11/6 update)

  • In PVE, Players who own a base cannot access their storage built on the base. Players with permissions to that base can access the storage on that base
  • Some servers are experiencing some extreme stability issues
