Pimp My Zombie

Single Player First Person Shooter Maps and Mods for Half-Life 1, 2 and Episodes 1, 2 and 3

Hec just made a comment on a review of Pimp My Car where he said.. “a special bonus section where u can kill pimp-zombies”.

OMG PIMPED ZOMBIES! What a great idea.

Here is how I see the mod working. You start as a regular zombie, no, not a headcrab, that’s already been done. As you work your way through Black Mesa you can upgrade or “pimp” your abilities. The labs in Black Mesa contain weird scientific experiments and if you manage to fight your way past the guards and soldiers you can access some of that weirdness.

Some abilities are short-term, others medium and others permanent.

There must be hundreds of abilities that could be added (bit like Modular Combat), things like speed, strength, radioactivity (the closer you get to enemies the more they lose health), accuracy of thrown objects, health from eating brains, killing other zombies to stop them getting stuff, etc etc.

Your ultimate objective to fight Freeman and protect the Nihilanth at the end of HL1.

Let the ideas roll…

    Oh I feel honoured, with this, that would be a fantastic challenge for modders make a pimped superb zombie would be soo cool, thx, Phillip for having my comment as inspiration 4 this blog 🙂

  2. As silly as the idea sounds, I think it would make a great mod providing it was made by the right modder. I think that this is certainly something which would work much better on the source engine, as well as that you also have different types of zombies in HL2. You could also have abilities such as being able to use grenades, like a Zombine from EP2, although the whole suicide thing probably wouldn’t work well at all… maybe the zombie could be slightly more intelligent then the average zombie or be able to just about survive the grenade blast? What about an ability of being able to carry Headcrabs like some Zombies from HL2?

    Having a zombie as fast as one of the fast zombies and as strong as one of those poison zombies would be pretty awesome. Kind of like a Gonome from op4. I would love to see a mod like this, although I doubt it will ever happen.

      No reason why you couldn’t just throw a grenade.

      maybe the zombie could be slightly more intelligent then the average zombie or be able to just about survive the grenade blast?

      Or you could actually “control” other zombies.

        Reminds me a bit of the game “Stubbs the Zombie.”

    I thought Hec’s idea was to kill Pimp-Zombies.
    Well with your idea it would be awesome if the creator[s] of Half Life: Zombie Edition made a mod based off this idea.

      Well actually I tought, killing zombies with cool extravagant clothes on them!; hahaha, but then I also share that upgrading zombies would be soo cool, and also i’d love to play as an assasain in HL1 I mean doing cool stunts backwards and killing grunts, and barneys, but I think that requires new codding issues…..

    So you are like a half-zombie who was not completely brainwashed , and you know a way to revert it , yet you have to fight like them to be able to get to the Sector J – Nucleoid Reverser ?
