Beginners is a Universe restricted for players Rank 0 to 10. As the name implies, expect survivors new to the apocalypse, and new to R2DA, to be seen within.

If you are between Ranks 0-6 you can only join this universe. You cannot join VIP Servers, unless you follow a link.



Note that for Deadvelopment Center zombies, they do not have reduced HP, though this will be fixed in a later update.

  • It's generally recommended to join Beginners if you are new to the game, as the regular game may seem a tad overwhelming to you at this stage.
  • Prestige players cannot join here if their normal rank is between 0-10.


  • Like Prestige, a removed Universe, this Universe is rank-specific.
  • A Rank 11+ can be on this server, but only if they ranked up within the same game session that made them Rank 11+ in the first place.
    • Trying to join from the Universe menu as Rank 10+ will have you stuck on the Loading Screen.
    • Even as a higher rank than 10, Moderators can still join a Beginners server if they are Modcalled to it.
