Zombies are the most common enemy in the game, and will spawn at alarming rates, depending on what game mode you are currently playing (usually higher difficulties or at night). There are 5 different types of zombies, all of which are unnamed, but are easily told apart by their natural colors. Some can jump very high or run very fast.
All zombies inflict a different amount of damage, as seen when fighting them. Additionally, they can grapple the player when attacking like all the other mobs. All types of zombies can dig through most weak materials to reach the player, making simple dirt huts useless when playing with enemies. However, even slightly weaker materials such as wood and stone will still take some time to completely break. You will hear a distinct sound when a zombie breaks a block. Each zombie looks different in appearance, mostly by color, but also by some other features (such as the Sand one having a bluish torso and some cargo shorts).
There are many kinds of undead, but there is one thing they all have in common - they all are relentless sub-humans that will stop at nothing to kill you.

Once you encounter them ... get ready for a real fight
- Ignoring a Zombie for too long will cause it to sprint at the player. At night, or in some cases, in hell, they will sprint as soon as they spawn out of the surface of a block.
- A group of 5 zombies or more can easily overwhelm an entire squad of players. However, it takes 2-3 seconds to kill one player.
- The zombies have very little pathfinding, meaning they will jump off cliffs and break through blocks to get to the player.
