Strategy[]

Zombies are the most basic enemies in Dead Cells. Their limited movement and range makes them easy to dispatch, but they can be dangerous if you let yourself get surrounded.

Simply rolling behind them and attacking is an effective way to avoid danger. If there are multiple enemies, run behind the zombie and deal with the more aggressive enemies first.

Notes[]

  • While extremely common on lower difficulty levels, they generally stop appearing altogether on higher difficulties.
