Zombie characters report in.
 
I have the zombie,
I do not know how I got it.
But let's try and solve it in this topic..



Some info:
-I own the PS3 PAL version.
-When I'm in the 'player model' screen, it says on the bodem of the screen " L1 ZOMBIE ". So by pressing L1-button my charcter becomes a zombie. When pressing L1 again, my character becomes normal again.
-I cannot put much clothes on the zombie, only hats and glasses.
-There is no female zombie. (or at least not with me)
-Never made it to rank 10.


The weird thing, everytime I start the GTA IV, my online ranking is not saved. So I keep starting at rank 0, (wich sucks) (many PS3 PAL people have this problem.) Still, the zombie skin is always available to me.


Sorry for my crappy English.

I just got it then when I became rank 1 in Multiplayer.

Are you by any chance also a member of the Rockstar Social Club with the same email you play multiplayer ? If so, did you also became a Social Club member BEFORE the GTA IV releasedate ?
Maybe it's that ? Or maybe not.

There must be something we have in common...

iKlipse 05-06-2008 07:00 PM

I registered on the social club when I got GTA IV on the 29th.

Zombie skin is just an unlockable. When I unlocked it, I also unlock 4 more different types of clothing.

Some info:
-I too own the PS3 PAL version. (bought on launch, signed up after 20 minutes of release.

- I can toggle between clothed / zombie characters by pressing the L1 button.
-the zombie model options are very limited to that of a clothed model. hats and sunglasses/shades (maybe more will become available at higher ranks)
- Not sure if the Zombie model is available to the selected few at Rank 0, as I only noticed the 'L1, Zombie' after gaining my first rank.
- Ever since using the Zombie option, the cash i earn through online multiplayer doesnt seem to keep (disappears once I log in from the night before, although this may be thanks to me turning my playstation3 off via the plug socket instead of actually quitting the online play)
- Im at Rank 1.
- I dont like to blow my own horn, but I am one of the better online players. (hidden online achievments maybe)
- I have only ever played Deathmatch and Freeroam game modes.
- I won my first 10 online matches. (sorry, but this might help)
- I havent completed the Storyline.
- Im 50% through.


and thats pretty much everything there is that could affect the option to use the zombie.

My theory is that it has something to do with how long you play the game. that would make sense...i guess.

I have it to.. and not to show off but I win every game I play and 99% of the games I do play are deathmatch. Don't think I've came second yet. Maybe it's for a high Kill per death.

Mean_Raffa 05-07-2008 06:07 PM

Same here,



My deaths are always very low, and my kills very high.
1st in the deathmatches most of the time.

I also found out by pressing L1 while in online play, you can make zombie sounds, insead of saying 'Hey' as usual.

Qontrol 05-07-2008 07:14 PM

lol.

You will unluck the zombie model once you reach the 1st rank, This has been confirmed by rockstargames a few days ago, After some mess on it....

nikothemute 05-19-2008 12:58 AM

did anybody else notice how once you're a zombie and you enter a motorcycle/motorbike race, you can use a special zombie bike?

M-O-P-E-Y 05-19-2008 02:03 AM

the zombie bike isnt special. btw ive been able to b a zombie for a long time

Jimmy_86 05-19-2008 08:57 AM

I can choose the Zombie model as well, not sure how/when I got it though.

One of the bikes in GTA IV is called "Zombie", is this what you mean?

Chigurh 05-24-2008 03:51 PM

I'm a zombie...

Is it true you get it when you win a match with a Rockstar employee?
