The Manhunt motto: "The last man will be victorious"

Manhunt 2008 is the second Manhunt competition, being organized as a follow up to Manhunt 07. It is usually participated in by members of the famous group the Beatbox Kids, but since its split, the competition is open to ex-BBK members and members of the groups made by ex-BBK members.

The Manhunt involves a fight for survival in a designated area between individual members. They must kill each other and survive in order to win the Manhunt. The last player alive wins.

As established from last year

  • Players are allowed to play an active part in the Manhunt after they have been killed, but only as a zombie, and only as the character they died as. However, they can not win. This is encouraged, it adds excitement.
  • No alts, period.
  • Once you die, you can't win the manhunt. Whether you die from manhunt contender, PKer, Zombie or Window, you can not be revived and allowed in the competition.
  • No revives once you have died, unless you are leaving the area while the manhunt is on.
  • No leaving the designated area!
  • Once you kill someone, you have to announce it on the Wiki. If it is someone who is likely to fight against it, a screenshot it always handy.
  • Do what you can to win; seek out opponents, hide, overbarricade, broadcast propaganda.

Newer Rules

  • The information restriction has been changed regarding player whereabouts: Since this next manhunt may be a team venture, information sharing between teams is allowed and encouraged. In the eventuality that the next manhunt isn't a team based; the same rules as 07 will apply.
  • Mobiles, spraycans and radio broadcasts will now be allowed to be used to coordinate attacks and display whereabouts to other players. A group frequency is recommended.
  • I think it should be tradition to hold a fight night between the two remaining contenders.
  • To discipline players who break the rules, their team may lose points, or be unable to accept the winning trophy.
  • The team you are playing for needs to be known before the manhunt. If you are going solo, that counts.
  • When less players are alive in the Manhunt, the size of the arena is subject to change to encourage the ending of the Manhunt.

Introduction of Teams

This is a tentative idea that envisions teamwork between the 3 main groups and any other groups that have spawned from the members of the BBK. The idea is potentially very exciting for the prospect of tactics and strategies in the Manhunt but there are many issues regarding the change in rules.


ATO Team 1






Spice Girls





ATO Team 2

Kill/Death Disputes

  • Wilson's controversial death has been noted and the decision has been made to re-allow him into the competition. Wilson won't be allowed to win the competition as a solo player (under the principle that he DID die) but he is allowed to get a revive and continue in the competition. Evieman will still get a count for the kill. DanceDanceRevolution 11:33, 2 February 2008 (UTC)

Most memorable death

Read vs. Megapup

Megapup finds MichaelRead in a building, with 4 AP left. Instead of running away and telling the ATO zombie horde, he decided to attack him with the 4AP he has remaining. He shoots 4 shotgun shells at MichaelRead before realising that instead of firing them at Michael, he had fired them at a random person in the same building next to him. Megapup runs out of AP and tells DanceDanceRevolution that he has found Michael. DDR then gets the ATO zombie horde to burst in and kill Michael before he wakes up and finds Megapup there, asleep next to him. The Zombie horde find the building, claw it down and with 10 ap left, try to kill Michael.

tdep, as a zombie, uses 9 ap in a row to bite Michael to infect him, missing every time. Strong'Bad just clawed at him after biting him (before realizing she DIDN'T have infectious bite) before falling asleep. Read was on 24 HP, and no survivors had the AP to finish him off. Where was the ATO's designated zombie Jonzay? He wasted all his AP on a random human 1 hour before. Read wakes up and finds 3 sleeping ATO members next to him and simply moves away. Megapup then waits half an hour and moves one square, away from the person he shot 4 times with a shotgun, accidentally moving into the block MichaelRead was in. MichaelRead kills Megapup within the minute. In a 3v1 brawl, MichaelRead won decisively in the worst co-ordinated attack most contestants had ever seen.

Shakey60 vs tdep and Strong'Bad

After being given the 'how to survive a manhunt' article created by DanceDanceRevolution, which was given to all ATO members in the manhunt, Strong'Bad and tdep ignored the tips and slept together in a lit police station in the middle of South Blythville, near the mall. They died together on the one night within minutes of each other. tdep has since retired from Urban Dead.

ATO vs Dandy69

Within hours of Guy the Firefighter's death, DanceDanceRevolution scouted the area which Guy was killed by 2 Spice Girls members. After finding Dandy69, unsure of his ability to kill him with the AP he had, he called upon the zombies in the ATO team 1, including Evieman and Guy the Firefighter. The two zombies had since found a horde with the other ATO zombies from team 2, and the horde of 5 zombies burst in, screamed incoherent garbage and clawed Dandy69 to death.

Feel free to add your own stories to the list or modify the ones already mentioned.

Most Valuable Player

Dandy68: with 2 kills and 1 assist, Dandy managed to not only kill a level 41 player planning a vendetta against the Spice Girls, he took out former runner-up Evieman, before assisting in the slaying Guy the Firefighter. Dandy 69 has proved his worth as both an individual and a team member.

2nd: DanceDanceRevolution

3rd: Nallan

Least Valuable Player

CounterSturck: This mysterious character in the ATO proved his amazing stealth abilities when no one in the entire manhunt saw him for days. About a week after the manhunt started, DanceDanceRevolution logged onto his alt and found CounterStruck lying in a revive point in Stanbury Village, having totally forgot about the manhunt.

2nd: ATO Team 1: scoring no kills and all being killed under embarrassing circumstances (bar Clueless Traveller), the only reason these guys didn't win this award was because they proved successful as a zombie horde.
