What a bloody mess!

Zombies are the reason why you're probably playing this game. In 7 Days To Die, there are many different species of zombies and all of them have their strength and weaknesses. Zombies move slower during the day and have a smaller aggro range. They also stay relatively close to their spawn areas. At night however, zombies will run (unless on a server that has that function turned off) and seem more acute to player activity, food smells (some foods do not emit a smell), pay more attention to light sources such as candles, torches and campfires and will become more aggressive.  

All zombies have melee attacks except for the Infected Policeman. Crawlers can be harder to shoot from a distance due to being low to the ground. Some zombies like the Feral Zombie are hard to kill and will take multiple headshots with a high level weapon.

One way to reduce zombie detection while looting or scavenging is to crouch. Player's will move slower while crouched but they will make less noise and become harder for zombies to sense.
