What is Darkness Falls Mod

If you don’t know what Darkness Falls mod is but love 7 Days To Die, then be prepared to get super excited. It’s a complete overhaul mod for the original 7 Days To Die game. I’m not talking like usual mods or modlets that tweak the game here and there. I mean, they take the vanilla 7 days to die game and add so much stuff you think you were playing a different game.

There is so much more added, like more zombies, like demon zombies that throw fireballs at you and are super tough to kill,  night stalkers that come out at night. The mod includes numerous guns, including laser guns that go up to quality LVL 8. Lots more vehicles as well and vehicle mods that not even the TFP could add to the game. Stronger crafting blocks, more workbenches, more mods, tools, and the list goes on.

One of my favourite things is the wasteland biome, Khaine the creator, made the wasteland an end game area. All the crazy strong zombies live there, and it’s 100% radioactive, so you need a radioactive suit or some form of radioactive protection. The wasteland is also where you find titanium and uranium, the main ingredient of the strong blocks and tools.

Darkness Falls Skilling System

Another favourite of mine on the Darkness Falls mod is the skilling system. It is the perfect combination of improving your abilities through practice and enhancing them via skill points. So, for example, you can improve your shotgun skills by killing zombies with it. Once you get your shotgun skills to a certain level, you can further amplify its stats with skill points. This is for everything pretty much, like it used to be in Alpha 16. And with the added class system to synergies your playing type, you get to specialize your character.

8 The Character Classes to Choose from

The Darkness Falls mod has a class system as well, featuring 8 different classes to choose from. When you first join the game, you have a book to read that allows you to select the type of person you were before the zombie apocalypse. Each class or character history unlocks a unique set of skills you can use and special quests to complete. For every quest you complete for your class, you are rewarded with items related to that class. Below is more information on the classes, don’t worry though, you can craft class crafting books in-game. This allows you to unlock all classes and their specialist skills throughout the game.

Farmer Class

Here is some advice when playing on Darkness Falls server. Suppose you spawn in the wasteland as I did. Run the hell out of there ASAP. The wasteland is full of end game zombies, ferals, radiated, demons etc. It Doesn’t matter what day or level you are. They will be there and murder you very quickly.

When you first join, you have two quests to do, the trader one and your class selection quests. I would do the trader quest first. It just involved you running to the trader and talking to them. The Darkness Falls mod has guards all around the trader that shoot zombies on site. They are also open 24/7, so it’s a great place to bunker up for a few days or weeks. Get there, and then do your class quests.

Be careful, though, in the Darkness Falls mod. Traders aren’t protected like in the vanilla version. You and the zombies can destroy the traders base so that a horde can ruin the entire POI. That’s why we have the rule not to live in the trader or spend horde night there. However, when I play on the Darkness Falls mod on a solo or private server, it’s what I love to do. I always live inside a trader and pimp it out with upgrades.

General Advice when playing on any PvE server.

Salty Zombies has quite a mature and experienced gaming community. However, this is the online gaming world. You will get trolls, griefers, hackers and all kinds of straight-up assholes. These people have nothing better to do than to enjoy the misery and pain of others. So to save yourself such hardship, try to be vigilant when teaming up with others.

You will probably be fine on our 7 Days To Die Darkness Falls Server as it’s only open to our patreons. These people are usually long term supporters and experienced, mature people. But there is no need to be careless, it’s against the law for someone to break into your house and steal your stuff, but it still happens. Just because it’s against our Darkness Falls server rules doesn’t mean someone might try it. So keep all your doors, hatches and storage boxes locked and closed.

Another bit of advice I would give when playing on our Darkness Falls server is to team up with someone you know well. The Darkness Falls Mod is hard, and it’s pretty different from the vanilla 7 Days To Die. Joining forces with a group of people is always fun. Try teaming with people who are equally active as you and can play at similar times.


Our 7 Days To Die Darkness Falls Server is protected by the same server bot we use on our PvE and PvP servers. However, there are no commands besides the /Stuck command, which you can use if you get suck in the ground or glitch in the wall somewhere. The reason being is that Darkness Falls Mod is perfectly tailored and should be played as such. Therefore, we also use the bot as it adds a couple of extra layers of protection.
