This is a cooperative map against waves of computer-controlled enemies. Teamwork is essential as is using each class's strengths to their fullest. Enemies are numerous and extremely dangerous, resulting in non-stop and intense action.
The intensity of this game will depend greatly on the number of players:
Something went terribly wrong in The Hive, an illegal research center underneath Raccoon City. With no word from their perimeter personnel, Umbrella Corp. responded by sending a team of elite forces to investigate, but its status is unknown. All are presumed dead.
New reports revealed the cause of the catastrophe was an attempt to steal an experimental virus from the complex, but sources indicate no samples made it out of the city. The virus, which animates the dead with a thirst for living flesh, breached containment and started spreading at an alarming rate. The growing horde of undead threatens to break the hastily constructed quarantine around Raccoon City.
As members of S.W.A.T., you and your squad represent the city's last hope to overcome this disaster. You must recover the stolen virus sample vials as well as find the rumored antidote formula. You also must aid panicked citizens in reaching designated shelters. Your task will not be easy; swarms of zombies are already headed toward S.W.A.T. Headquarters...

Tips: ** The more players, the better. The experience penalty for having more players is minimal, and rewards are always divided equally to everyone in the game. More guns firing means more zombies dying. Stay together. Any single unit can kill incoming zombies, but if you're alone when a large pack comes at you, you're dead. Also, many classes' skills boost the effectiveness of nearby allies. Note that you may find it advantageous to allow one Covert Op. to scout. ** Use your skills. When you select a class, read the descriptions for your six skills, think about what situations would benefit from them, and then use them in those situations. Each class has a well-defined and significant role that you should strive to fulfill. ** Keep moving. The undead home in on your general location. If you stand in one spot too long, you'll have them coming in from all directions. You'll also want the items scattered across the map as well as the rewards for completing quests. And remember not to linger inside buildings.. very dangerous. ** Don't run from the boss. He's big, scary, and can often kill you in one hit, but he will chase you down and kill you all if you don't stand-fast and put him down quickly. Distract him with expendable units like Policemen, Mini Droids, or even citizens if necessary. ** Vote for Normal. Don't vote for Hard or Insane difficulty unless you've beaten Normal. Your teammates should be equally experienced if you expect to win the harder difficulty modes; simply having nine players is not enough. Winning Hard requires a lot of skill and cooperation. Winning Insane requires a team of expert players with a planned strategy. Versions: 1.7.1 Increased chance of selecting the Cyborg class.
