    At the beginning of the apocalypse, the authorities ordered to condemn all the exits of the mines because there was a high concentration of infection inside.

    Having the inability to use pickaxes as infected, the miners began to dig desperately towards an exit without forgetting the pain of digging hard surfaces with their hands.

    Even though the diggers came out of the caves, they have not seen the daylight for so long that once outside, daylight force them to continue their way beneath the ground, and since these events, we call these phenomena the diggers

    Recently, the diggers have adapted an exceptional drilling capacity which allows them to dig quickly even under the most solid surfaces.


    The digger also called "Mole Zombie" is an infected able to dig below the surface without being attacked by survivors.

    【Fields of expertise】

    Attack damage:

    ★ ★ ★ ★ ☆ [15-20 Hp] (Because they have sharpened claws)


    ★ ★ ☆ ☆ ☆ [80-100 Hp] (Because it does a lot of damage and it is very mobile)

    MovementSpeed (ground):

    ★ ★ ★ ☆ ☆ (Fast as a standard zombie)

    MovementSpeed (Underground):

    ★ ★ ★ ★ ★ (Faster than an Edgar)


    ★ ★ ★ ☆ ☆ (Rare as a leaper)


    Digging Competence (E):

    When the player presses E, the zombie digs under the surface, which improves its speed and makes it very difficult to kill.

    Digging Physics:

    To avoid glitches and bugs, it would be necessary that when he digs, his body does not move underground so to avoid these problems it would be necessary to simulate the player digging underground with an animation. (Physically, the corp still on the ground but its displacements would be published and it would be totally invisible, no collision with structures/players, in short, it would have to make believe to the players that the zombie digs under the surface whereas it is only 'an animation)

    Digging Properties:

    - The zombie can only dig to a surface in which it goes back up (Most important)

    - When the player presses E, the zombie takes 2-3 seconds before being under the surface (which   makes it vulnerable when it comes in or out of its hiding place)

    - Digging consumes energy so if the zombie exceeds the stamina bar by digging it will automatically raise the surface.

    - The zombie has 100 stamina and consumes 10 energy per second so it can dig up to 10 seconds.

    (The regeneration time of the stamina is slow to avoid the player constantly changing surface)

    - When the zombie digs, it can not stop under the ground

    (so if the player does not control the zombie it will keep the same direction in a straight line)

    (The zombie must be in constant motion and can not stop while it digs to avoid it camping underground, so it means that at the least moment it is underground, it consumes energy.)

    - The zombie does not dig vertically (Up to Down)

    - The zombie can not dig into a small building (ie the foundation, floors)

    - The zombie can't dig under a building

    In digging mode, it is invulnerable to:

    - Is somehow invincible as it digs but can not directly attack the player during this time

    -Fire (Because it digs below)

    -Gun bullets


    (Because the zombie does not hear Beep sounds because of the low frequencies below the surface)

    In digging mode, it is vulnerable to:

    Shovel (If the player shoots while the zombie is under his feet, the player will raise it to the surface)

    - Landmine (If this item would be added)

    Sabotaging Competence (Passive):

    The zombie damage twice the barricades (LMB) than others zombies


    -This zombie is designed to give a better chance to zombie players to get close to survivors

    -It is very important to plan its exit towards the surface. (It is better to go out in a safe place)
