|— In-game description.|
The Zombie is one of the 5 event units exclusive to the Halloween Event, it is among the 3rd strongest of all 5 units
Zombies were introduced in the 2012 Halloween Event as one of the 4 new units added at the time. They are noticeably slow, but are dangerously strong as a group. This unit's special trait is high health and good damage but slow speed, they attack anything and 75 can be bought in the shop for 25 when the event is active (1 for 5) or as part of the Horror Pack in the Premium Shop for 649.
The Zombies are slow so Mortars will easily deal with them, Freeze Turrets can heavily slow them down even further as well. Combining the two will make the Zombies' doom. However if there are no surrounding buildings for the turrets then they can get easily overwhelmed and destroyed if there is a zombie hoard targeting them, so be sure to have proper protection for the turrets. Bunkers filled with Colossi and Falcons will shred away Zombies easily The game recommends the use of Arcane Seals for Skeletons and Zombies, so place them around your defences to protect them better.
Zombies should be thought of as way stronger version of Marines, so they should be deployed as a horde when a base doesn't have the defences stated above, be wary of Traps too, not forgetting the Explosive Pumpkin exclusive to this event.
