Dead Trigger 2 is certainly one of the prettiest shooters on Android, and it also has one of the highest zombie densities of any game on Android. The developers have been pretty serious about adding new content and responding to player suggestions with past updates, and it's the same with today's. Version 0.2.5 has hit Google Play with some cool stuff and insights into the next update.


Here's the changelog from the newest version:

  • New Features
    • Over 50 new gameplays
    • More Helicopter & Sniper missions
    • New African Environments
    • Redesigned Warfare Rewards
  • Balancing
    • Zombie difficulty has been rebalanced
    • Number of fast zombies decreased
    • Several missions have been rebalanced
  • Other
    • Various tweaks across the whole game
    • Pink textures on Galaxy Grand
  • Next Update 0.3.0
    • Chinese Environments
    • New Story/Warfare Missions
    • Challenges
    • New Melee Weapons
    • Special Christmas Update
    • Chat

The rebalancing is becoming a theme with Dead Trigger 2 updates – less running and more shambling is a good thing. There have already been a few tweaks to the difficulty, so maybe it's worth giving the game another shot if you haven't played it since launch. It's also nice to see new content being added in this update and the next one.

    What they really need to do in the next update would be the internet connection needed at first run. This isn't cool particularly when i need the game to pass time on the plane or train

    • Mo Yang

      I completely agree with this, but, I don't think that will happen ever seeing as all the information is saved on their servers. I know they implemented this for the weak feature of killing zombies on the continents, but I think they really implemented this in order to prevent players who opt to cheat (i.e. Dead Trigger money and gold). So I guess the few have ruined it for everyone else.

      Im on the train a lot too. once connection is lost it should save data on your phone then sync when connection is established.

    Remove the Internet verification at startup!

    Mmmm now play store says that its not compatible whit my nexus 4 and cant update

    • saleem

      Working fine for me, Nexus 4 (Android 4.2.2)

      • Armando Villanueva

        So it might be the rom youre using? Im on stock 4.4 and a friend whit the same phone and stock 4.4 have the same issue

        • saleem

          Probably a kit kat compatibility issue then. My phone is rooted, running MIUI rom

        • Axel

          Not really could be only your region or something, I'm on stock 4.4 and have no problems on my Nexus 4, I'm rooted but have no mods

    • Robert Simmons

      Same here on my nexus 7 running 4.4

  • Severo Rivera

    At least there continuing to update the game and making it better every update.

    Too many IAP at launch turned me completely off. I really loved the first one and played it daily. This has far too many "update this to do this" type of elements that degrade the interest in actually playing. I want to be able to buy my weapons without upgrading my tech and rescuing a person to build my weapons. I think they over thought it to the point they took the fun elements away,

  • John Smith

    it would be awesome if I could play the game on Sprint's "4G LTE" with 1 bar !
    It seems that Sprint, in Seattle, is quite weak on the 4G power; typically my phone will switch between 3G with 6 bars, and 4G with 1 bar. During the switch I get no connection...

  • axel

    What I would love for an update it to implement, immersive mode, it will make it so much better looking. Games should really take advantage of this feature, but since Nexus' are the minority it might take forever

    • Your Mother

      what's immersive mode?

      • axel

        That new feature on 4.4 kit Kat where the navigation buttons and the bar disappear completely, giving you true full screen. But its only for phones with on screen buttons like Nexus phones.

  • Your Mother

    haven't played the updates yet but I hope they added weather effects. I hate how too many games ignore weather and time of day which brings a whole new experience to any game.

    But still no offline play.

    I would like to see gold and money fall out of Ragers and Scientist if you defeat them in hard mode with nothing but a melee weapon. In fact, if you can defeat Rager with a melee on Hard mode, I should be able to beat at least fifteen (15) pieces of gold from his #*! along with fifty thousand dollars. How about that for an update???
