Dead Trigger 2 Gets Major “Slay” Bells Update, Nearly Doubles In-game Content

Zombie slayers, listen up! A new update is available through Google Play for Dead Trigger 2; the update we have all been waiting for. Finally, Madfinger Games opened up the Chinese environments and claim there is now almost double the content as there previously was, so it appears Christmas has come early for us. 

Players can now choose from up to 30 different weapons and use them on over 150 gameplays. And while I will be the first to say that the game sometimes gets a bit repetitive, the opening of the new environment should certainly change that. In addition, the developers added in a few different melee weapons, including the Big Hammer, Brain Mill, Machete, and Butterfly Swords. They claim it makes for a truly unique gaming experience, so we’re excited to try it out.

Madfinger also teases that they have a few Christmas presents inside for players who update, so definitely go grab the newest version.

    N5 with a Moga pro makes this one of my favorite go to games. Haven’t had time to check out the update, but looks good already. p.s. I have yet to buy an iap and still have a blast on this game

  • Bruce-1980

    Update makes purchasing & upgrading weapons / equipment extortionately expensive! Unless you’re willing to spend weeks earning enough money for a weapon upgrade you’ll have to cross the developers palm with silver… real “In-App Purchase” silver that is!

      Look closer… Mission rewards, cash pickups and bonuses have gone up significantly. They have also implemented a whole new achievement based reward system that rewards gold, no money or tapjoy offer hell.

      • Chris Newman

        yes and you can exchange the gold for cash. Also you use the gold to trade for double money bonuses for either an hour or 24 hours which means you can earn even more money. I think this update is amazing, although i still can not access china as of yet even though all of Africa is completed. Does anyone know what is happening there?

    Once I figured out I had to have an internet connection to play the game I uninstalled so fast it made a zombie’s head spin.

    • joejoe5709

      Why? It uses almost no data when you’re not on Wifi and it saves your game progress seamlessly. I love it.

      • Lawrence_Hart

        It makes hard to play when you are on a 7 hour flight.

        • joejoe5709

          Well OK other than that or driving outside of coverage, it’s still an awesome feature.

          • Lawrence_Hart

            The first dead trigger had online backups and sync between devices. You did have to touch like three buttons but that’s not a big deal. You could also play without a data connection. It’s a much better implementation.

          • CommonSense

            Out of all the time you play Dead Trigger 2, is “being on a flight” really that much? And out of all the bigger reasons, why would MFG care if you can’t play in a mere 7 hours?
            It doesn’t take much Cellular data up, but if you can’t afford Cellular data, then you should understand that this is a hack-prevention so MFG can make profit.

    • HarvesterX

      Because the game has a ranking system and IAPs and they need to verify that the copy of the apk that you are using has the same signature so say, I couldn’t decompile the apk, edit the smali code and chest my way to the top of the ranks.

      The connection is open once at startup and then closed, as keeping a connection open is horrible programming. There are algorithms for sending data through mobile devices and may include sensing information in batcheshere and there.

      The game will also most likely open a connection at random to reverify the validity of your game copy.

      And finally a connection is made to update stats if playing multiplayer campaign and if you make IAPs, but those aren’t the reasons the connection is needed. It’s an unfortunate evil and we will see more of this on multiplayer games.
