Current Version

It might be a further level of decomposition, it might just be the effects of the colder weather, but zombies seem to be reacting differently to Headshot as the snow begins to fall - they no longer lose experience, but their nervous system becomes frayed and slowed, taking them longer to stand up after a blow to the skull. -- News

Longer to stand up suggests an AP penalty. Questions that come to mind are: what are the penalties with ankle grab, without ankle grab, and are there any cumulative penalties for dying and standing repeatedly in a short period of time. - Dashiva 11:23, 19 Dec 2005 (GMT)

Reports on the forum indicate that it now takes zombies 5 more AP to stand up after being head shot. So thats 6 AP for ankle grabbers, and 15 AP for Non-ankles. Velkrin 17:25, 19 Dec 2005 (EST)
  • It has been reported that the XP is still being lost.

Old Versions

it seems like you start at level 1. so every head shot will take away at least 10 xp.

Not if you're a human who's been killed and has no zombie skills whatsoever.--Insomniac By Choice 22:47, 18 Oct 2005 (BST)
Human skills do seem to count. --Leit 10:06, 12 Dec 2005 (GMT)

Is it just me, or does it now tell you how much XP your target lost now when you kill them? i.e.

"You attack the zombie for 3 damage. They take a Headshot for 10 XP, and die."

--DeathRay 22:06, 20 Oct 2005 (BST)

Nope, not just you. Some other changes are being reported as well. --Raelin 22:18, 20 Oct 2005 (BST)

I just got this message today. As I've never used headshot before, I don't know if it's normal or not... "You fire at the zombie for 5 damage. Your Headshot dents their hollow skull, and they die." So what's that all about? Bentley Foss 23:39, 21 Nov 2005 (GMT)

I believe this means that either A) the zombie was already at 0 XP and/or B) the zombie is level 1. Either way, the headshot wouldn't take any XP from the zombie. -Chester Katz 18:22, 22 Nov 2005 (GMT)
Strangely enough, as a level 1 zombie I've been Headshot and actually gained XP. --Leit 10:06, 12 Dec 2005 (GMT)

Gee, thanks

  • For letting me know I got quoted. Heh, I actually don't care for the headshot revision, though. That's what I get for placing logical revisions in my suggestion votes. --Squashua 20:27, 1 Feb 2006 (GMT)
  • OMG!!! Some of you zombies hunters are getting out of hand!!! I got killed, and I'm sitting at a revive point, and a headshot happy zed hunter comes along, kills me, and adding insult to injury, gives me a headshot for the road!!!!! Don't say it wasn't clearly marked, it says "revie point DO NOT SHOOT ZOMBIES HERE"

the problem with these skills

the problem with these skills is that with headshot, zeds who are really survivors headed for a revive or just moving around in confusion have alot of trouble. espescily the newer humans who die... thats it --cody6 02:07, 2 September 2006 (BST)

Headshot Query

Can zombies headshot their fellow zombies? It sounds far-fetched, but I can image a zombie using its claws to part a zombie with its gray matter, or using a bite attack to sever the zombie's frontal lobes. --Pyrranha 00:58, 13 April 2007 (BST)


Okay, so I was attacking this Zombie when I ran out of ammo... and the Zed had five HP left. I had about 20 AP left, so I figured, what the heck? ...and started punching away at the zed. After a few attempts, was able to actually hit the zed five times. On the fifth hit, it said "You attack the zombie for 1 damage. They take a Headshot and die."

Now I was under the assumption that the headshot applied only when using... you know... shooting weapons. Does it apply to everything? TheUncleBob 13:57, 26 April 2007 (BST)

Yes, it does. I love delivering Headshot with a punch, due to the hilarity of a fist going clear through a zombies head...EtimS 17:08, 28 April 2007 (BST)
  1. mr hauze hit you with a fire axe for 3 damage. (48 minutes ago) ...and again. (47 minutes ago) ...and again. (47 minutes ago) ...and again. (46 minutes ago) ...and again. (46 minutes ago) ...and again. (46 minutes ago) ...and again. (46 minutes ago) ...and again. (46 minutes ago) ...and again. (46 minutes ago) ...and again. (45 minutes ago) ...and again. (45 minutes ago)
  2. You took a Headshot from mr hauze the Zombie Hunter! You will need to spend an extra 5AP to stand up.

This really is a bit of an oversight...Somehow punching through a poor rotter's head seems a bit out of genre to me. TerminalFailure

"poor rotter"? The genre of a zombie apocalypse game is horror, where players are routinely torn limb from limb and eaten alive by flesh eating zombies. In what way is this "out of genre"?


Just to clarify - the headshot skill works with all weapons?!? Zig13 - 30/04/2008 at 10:59(BST)
