Dust Battlefield Unit Assessment: Axis Zombies

The Axis is becoming desperate for soldiers after nearly a decade of war.  The bloc has turned to its weird science division the Blutkreuz, or Blood Cross, for solutions no matter how extreme.  The mad scientists have turned to infusing their very own troops with a serum named Wiederbelebungseserum. Roughly translated it means, “once again revived serum.”  Most soldiers never rise again even with the serum coursing through their veins.  An extremely small amount retain at least part of their intelligence though many times their personality is greatly altered.  In most cases, the few undead that do come back are mindless brutes as dangerous to their handlers as they are to the enemy.

This article will review the Axis Zombies (or just Zombies in Dust Battlefield).  I will go over the Zombies’ stats and skills, the heroes that best work with them, the Axis Zombie Swarm Platoon, some roles and tactics, and my overall thoughts and opinions to one of the creepiest units in Dust.

Unit Inspection: Axis Hero Grenadier X

Few people alive know of the Axis scourge known only as Grenadier X. Those than even know of his existence are unsure it the undead soldier is a single warrior, or if he is fact a number of high ranking Blutkreuz officers that have taken up the mantle of zombie terror after their deaths. What is known is that Grenadier X is highly intelligent and fiercely loyal combatant. Woe is those who befall his bloody saw.

Unit Inspection: Axis “Heilige Tod” Blutkreuz Korps Ubertoten Suicide Squad

Most subjects of the Wiederbelebungsserum never regain any level of human-like conscience.  The majority are like barely controllable animals that after being resurrected are unleashed upon the enemies of the Axis rather than commanded into battle.  Sometimes, the soldiers that come back from this serum retain part of themselves.  Those fiercely loyal to the Axis cause often join the ranks of the Braineaters.  Sometimes those soldiers that come back only want to return back to their rest but are loyal enough to serve the bloc one last time before seeking death again.  Those unstable soldiers are placed in the Heilige Tod or holy dead.  A horrible, morbid honor among the Blutkreuz.

Unit Inspection: “Braineaters” Blutkreuz Korps Ubertoten Assault Squad

Most subjects of the Wiederbelebungsserum never regain any level of human-like conscience.  The majority are like barely controllable animals that after being resurrected are unleashed upon the enemies of the Axis rather than commanded into battle.  This not the case with the Ubertoten Assault Squad.  The members of these squads retain their thoughts, memories, and experiences becoming a sort of “living” zombie.  Many so called experts reason for this is their fierce loyalty to the Axis cause that transcends death itself.  Critics that know of the program are quick to point out how much this sounds like the Wehrmacht’s propaganda.  In either event, these soldiers are insatiable for combat and have been known to live up to their nickname on the battlefield actually feasting on the brains of their enemies.

Unit Inspection: Axis Zombies

Soldiers in the Blutkruez (Bloody Cross) are often injected with the highly controversial Wiederbelebungseserum or “once again revived serum.”   This serum can bring back the recently dead to a sort of unlife.  Most never regain any sibilance of who they were barely able know the difference between friend and foe.  Yet, in their desperation for more soldiers, the Axis have given these not dead but not quite alive things powerful panzer gloves capable of ripping through the toughest of armor.  Both the Allies and the SSU troops greatly fear these barely human weapons of war.
