Description[ | ]

A Burn Victim (zombieBurnt) is a special type of zombie that is only encountered in the Burnt Forest-biome and also rarely on Blood Moon hordes. Like the Frozen Lumberjack, these zombies were affected heavily by the biome around them, as Burn Victims resemble burning, charred wood. They typically stray around the roads or abandoned shacks you may find in the Burnt Forest and blend in with their surroundings, so keep alert for movement when travelling through their territory.

When they are nearby they will emit hoarse moans and a constant 'crackling' akin to lit torches or campfires. Because of this, a player will likely hear them coming long before they enter field of view. This should be taken advantage of, as while they deal as much damage per hit as a standard zombie, they have a chance to set players on fire with every successful attack.

Combat[ | ]

Their behavior in combat is no different than other "normal" zombies. If the player strays too close and alerts them of your presence, they will path towards the player at the speed they were set to.

Notes[ | ]

  • Pre-Alpha 6.1 this zombie was known as the Burnt Zombie.
  • Before the Burn Victim was introduced in the game the zombies that populated the Burnt Forest were the Feral Walker.
  • The Burn Victim does take fire damage.
  • The Burn Victim will not be extinguished when going into water.
  • Despite The Burn Victim's ability to set players on fire by touch, they cannot do the same to wood blocks.
  • Burn Victim no longer sets players on fire.
  • The Feral variant of a Burn Victim will have its body on fire, and there is also a Irradiated variant of the Burn Victim but its extremely rare to see one on a Horde Night with a really high Game Stage, additionally you could go to Army Camp 2 (with a high enough Game Stage to see irradiated zombies) and look at the right side of the Army Camp where there is a lot of corpse bags and at the center of the area you should see 4 Burn Victims with one of them being irradiated
  • In the Xbox Version of 7 Days To Die you can skin a dead Burn Victim's corpse, it will make the same animation as skinning an animal and while skinning you have a chance to get 1 piece of Charred Meat despite the corpse being a zombie with mostly getting Rotten Meat out of the corpse.
