Zombie Master In Short

Zombie Master is a multiplayer Half-Life 2 modification, centred around a zombie-apocalypse, which throws all but one player in the shoes of human survivors. Pitched against a relentless tide of rotting flesh, they must scavenge for weaponry and equipment just to stay alive. But that one player, chosen randomly at the beginning of the round, is not bound by mortal restraints.

To speak his name is to invite the wrath of hell - but most call him the 'Zombie Master'. He is nigh omnipotent. His invisible hand controls the legions of undead like puppets on strings; slowly closing the net on the humans while they run to and fro like rats in a maze.

Features
Human team:

* A wide range of weapons to scavenge such as shotguns, molotov cocktails, rifles and more
* A number of challenging objectives that encourage players to team up and work together
* The ability to interact with the environment to build barricades and carry objects

Zombie Master:

* Real Time Strategy gameplay; create and command your own undead horde
* A wide variation of zombie units encourages the ZM to adopt complex tactics
* Environmental "manipulates" allow the ZM to interact with the world in devilish ways
* Mysterious powers let the ZM manifest his power in a more direct fashion... for a price

  • Fixed memory leak in server
  • Revolver made stronger

I'll never forget first seeing this mod on YouTube, "Top 10 Spookiest Mods", by ModDB. This is the game where I learned that winning isn't everything, but rather the experience you get from playing together with an excellent community. RIP ZM, may you be brought back again one day by a new entity.

Zombie Master isn‘t dead mod. It‘s undead mod.
ZM will never die! If there are still people who plays it do not let it go down.

Well i found a unused m4 rifle and sigsauer sniper rifle in the files and according to the mod wikia the sniper would be useless and overpowered (they would have fitted in nicely)

Both mods are dead. Lets just wait for an Unreal ZM to come out as independant on steam... Hopefully that happens.
