Hello, I’m kinda into mid-game I got heavy survivor armor and stuff like that and tried looting a hospital and got greeted by a bunch of zombies and 3 Skeletal Juggernauts, and killed them all with unarmed dragon kung fu. Then headed back for the hospital and there were another 4 Skeletal Juggernauts?? And that’s just like the entrace to the hospital. Are there like 100 more inside? Earlier in the game my evac shelter got attacked by a horde consisting of 3 Skeletal Juggernauts and 1 hulk, that I narrowly survived thank god i had a Rivtech Automagnum and some bullets.
So is it just me or those seem to spawn in kinda ridiculous numbers nowadays?
Yeah, I’ve noticed the “gangs of three to five juggernauts” effect happening on a recent build too, though I’ve not been playing a lot the past week.
I had a mansion whose first floor had, I think it was, three juggernauts, a brute, and like five other miscellaneous zombies. As if a juggernaut had casually embezzled all the spawn points that should have gone towards filling the place up and gave it to his cousins instead.
Monsters in general seem to be way too high level. I took a break from playing some 2 months ago and came back about a week now and day 1 hordes have like 5 skeletal jugs, corrosives and feral predator and I think that’s a bit too much. Shouldn’t they scale with your progression? Has this been changed?
I mean, if you actually killed a hulk and 3 juggernaughts then it seems you have progressed far enough to need that type of threat lol. Juggers are pretty harmless though. Fighting is pretty much never necessary with them.
I assume your running the latest build? There’s been some issues with the most recent builds lately so if it’s causing you trouble you may want to downgrade temporarily. 14 days ago build seems to be doing nothing strange so it’s what I’ve been running for the past week after hitting a bunch of crashes and error messages trying the newer ones.
well they are quite close to my base and wack NPC’s really fast. They aren’t as much of a threat as a nuissance. But I mentioned I also seem to encounter them in gangs even pretty early in the game and I thought that was strange. Yes I can kill them unarmed combat is great!
I have a build from 4 days ago. So the spawn rates have been altered so do i just have bad luck?
I have the feeling that specials spawn far too often overall. It seems like a significant portion of zombie spawns, even on Spring start, are specials or even extremely dangerous evolved zombies. That’d be, what, five days post-Cataclysm? It seems odd to have so many specials that early. Towns are dangerous enough without feral predators and hulks running you down in the street minutes after starting a character.
i play CDDA for about a year now and never messed with the evolution or spawn options in the world settings, i always go default, yet only on my recent playthrough i noticed they spawn way too often and also really dangerous Z’s like feral predators and corrosives since the first days.
i also did start the game on summer. does that influence the evolution factor?
