Madfinger's Dead Trigger 2 has remained near the top of the game charts on Android since its release a couple of months ago, and the developers continue to update it regularly. The last update focused on balance issues, but this one adds the most content yet, most notably the new China environment. This addition includes new Story and Warfare missions and extra challenges, plus Google Play Games achievements.


You also get several handfuls of melee weapons for when you inevitably run out of ammo and/or chickens. The Big Hammer and Butterfly Swords seem like they'll be the most fun, but Danny Trejo fans can also cause a little carnage with the Machete. Madfinger says that there are now 30 different weapons and 150 gameplays in Dead Trigger 2. If you play throughout the holidays you might notice some limited-edition Christmas presents, though the developers are keeping mum on their contents for the moment.

The original Dead Trigger is also receiving an update, primarily to add support for more high-resolution phones and tablets. It also updates the game to remove a bug in the equip menu and refreshes support for Facebook, Twitter, TapJoy, and Chartboost. Rest easy, holiday travelers - you'll have plenty of reason to ignore your friends and family this yuletide.

    Before this update, were you guys stuck in Africa after the story of Africa ended? i wasn't seeing any other "story" campaign after that. Only non-relevant single games were there. Was I missing something?

    And offline play?

    No? I thought so.

  • Marius Oprisan

    This game was destroyed by developers' greed. The update tripled prices of everything and didn't add any new content as you can't play China region yet. Lame...

    • Josh

      They also increased the reward you get for completing missions.

  • GiggidyGoo

    Why does it say "Your device isn't compatible with this version" on both of my Nexus 7 2013 and Galaxy Nexus? Am I being banned? I did not cheat or hack the game. Mtfs

    The worst and most overrated game ever. A simpl knockoff the ckz origins.

      Imy at level 43 with eeveryone in my hideout at lvl 8. I've never spent a penny of real money on this game. Scrounge up the gold coins, buy the boosters from the Trader and play the game.
      The upgrade is nice! Great to have fresh stuff to do and play with. Love getting gold for achievements I've already reached. Love that I can now slot my chainsaw as a melee weapon instead of taking up a gun slot
      That said:

      Chat is a unholy mess. Too many users,scrolls too fast. Makes it useless
      New wweapons arrive as MK1. never going to spend the time and money to upgrade them to match all my other level 8 weapons.

    What this update did :
    1) You get more in0game-credits after you successfully finish a mission. For example, up from like 2,000 to 10,000 *YAY*
    2) However, the developers then said "since you get more credits per mission, how about we bump up the prices of everything else". So they bumped up the prices for all the mandatory "research" stuff that you have to do in order to be successful (Tech level, etc). For example, to upgrade from tech level 6 to 7 costs 600,000 credits which is around $12. That doesn't include the subsequent costs of upgrading your base-camp producers, or the costs then due to upgrading your weapons. *NAY*
    3) They did *not* increase the credits you get for the currency you spend.

    TLDR: the game got incredibly expensive even though it was quite expensive already. Don't bother playing it !!! Even if it looks sweet... it will cost you dearly.

    BUG(?): Once you finish the U.S. and Africa missions, China shows up but you can't play it.
