WELCOME TO OUR
7 DAYS TO DIE PVP SERVER
7 Days To Die PvP servers can get pretty toxic, but luckily for us, our PVP server has a great team and community behind it. Our PVP Casual server is quite famous and is consistently ranked #1 PVP Server of all time. One of the main reasons for this is because we do not allow base raiding. Grinding hard for hours to gather all the materials and items you need. Then to pimp your character out and build an epic base, only to login in one day to all of it gone can be devastating. Now, this isn’t because you designed a bad base, or you are a terrible player. It’s probably because you were asleep or have a job or spent the weekend with the family.
At Salty Zombies, we understand that you love the thrill and the realistic aspect of PVP survival in a post-apocalyptic zombie game. But we also know that you might not be able to defend your base 24/7 against the unemployed who have all day and night to play. So that’s why we designed a PVP server that gives the working class and family man a fighting chance.
The other benefit of playing on our server is that it’s a beast. We have a Ryzen 3950 4.7GHz x32 Core Turbo with 64GB of DDR4 RAM that keeps the game buttery smooth even with a high population. So if you are interested in joining our PvP Casual server, then check out the details below. And if you have any questions, please join our 7 Days To Die Discord, and one of our admin can assist you.

A LITTLE ADVICE WHEN PLAYING ON ANY 7 DAYS TO DIE PVP 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 save yourself such hardship, try to be vigilant and read this 7 Days To Die Server PvP Tips and guide!
Base raiding is against the rules on our PVP Casual server, So is:
- Purposefully using zombies/exploits to damage other players bases.
- Stealing items from players bases, including their forges, workbenches, chem stations, storages chests etc.
- Bed Camping a player.
- Camping in another players base.
These are the things you can do:
- Enter another players base with the intent of killing the occupants and taking whatever items they drop.
- Shoot enemy players inside their bases (you can be in or outside of the base).
Here is a couple of things to keep in mind when building your base:
- Lock your damn doors. This is the number 1 way players get into other players bases.
- You have 4 land claims blocks. Use them!
- Build a “defendable” base. Make sure you have ways of firing out at enemy players.
- Players will attempt to enter your base from the air. Design your base accordingly.
- Have multiple entries and exits at your base.
7 DAYS TO DIE PVP TIPS
Here is a little section on 7 Days To Die PVP tips for our PvP server. If you are new to PvP, I highly recommend you give this a solid read. 7 Days to Die wasn’t designed for PvP, and the Fun Pimps only seem interested in developing the games PvE element. But, playing on our 7 Days To Die PvP server does have an exciting element to it. But it can also be a harsh and toxic environment. It’s not for the faint hearted.
Build Your Base Underground!
“A seen base is a raided base” This may seem obvious but you be surprised how many PvE players we get trying our PvP server for the first time and building a base above ground. You want to be hidden as long as possible, build your base underground with a disguised entrance, no hatches at the very top. If you are in a desert biome make sure you cover your entrance with desert grounds. You will be surprised how many newbs cover their base entrance with the wrong biome terrain.
Turn Off Ambient & Music Sound
First things first, turn off your games ambient and music sound. You can do this in the Audio settings, just turn its volume down to zero. When looting, be wary of your surroundings, occasionally stop and be still to see if you hear any unusual noises. Also, be wary of the noise you make, even aiming down site makes a sound that a player nearby can hear.
You Are Being Followed!
When you head back to base, make sure you are not being followed. One of the most common ways a base is found is by players following another player back to their base. When you head back, check behind you occasionally and check up in the sky. Gyros make no sound at all and are great for following others back to base.
Turn Off Motion Blur
Motion Blur is an annoying way to add some sort of realism to the 7 Days To Die PvP. It basically means when you turn left or right fast your screen will blur for a moment till your characters “eyes” focus. But if your fighting someone in close quarters like in a POI and they running around you and jumping up and down like a bunny rabbit. Your screen will constantly be blurry as you try to track them with your gun sight. Turn it off for a better and easier PvP experience.
24/7 Night Vision
You probably know this one already from playing on any 7 Days To Die PvE Server. But you can up the gamma on your video settings in-game to see quite well at night time. If you have this on default settings you will blind as a bat during night time. And if you use a headlamp or gun light attachment you are just lighting your self up for all enemies nearby to see you.
In your base, place your bed separately in a hidden room with some spare gear inside a box. This is helpful for numerous reasons, If you are killed near your base, you can spawn on your bed grab the gear and get back in the fight. It’s also helpful if you are under attack. For example, if the raiders kill you and your bed is in the open, then they will kill you again the moment you spawn on your bed. If it’s out the way and protected, you can spawn on your bed in safety grab your spare gear and continue to defend your base.
Make Your Base Defendable
So many players think the thicker the walls, the better. However, most underground bases are just 100% defensive and have zero offensive capabilities. A lot of the times, you might be online whilst you are being raided. You might also be outnumbered and have multiple players augering into your base from multiple directions. Design your base so you can fight off the attackers as they try to break in.
Airdrops Make Great Traps
Airdrops are almost always camped. If the server is a big map and not many people online, you might be ok if you are quick enough. Grab a fast vehicle or if you don’t have one, run there naked with nothing in your inventory.
Turn Off Depth of Field
7 Days To Die isn’t optimized for PvP and “Depth of field” is a prime example. Say your sniping someone but a tree branch, pole, or bush is in the way of you and your target. Your scoop will focus on the poll or branch and make your target that’s further in the distance blurry. This makes it hard to shoot, especially if he doesn’t die on the first shot and he starts running for his life. Turn off the depth of field so no matter what’s in between you and your victim, your scoop will always put them in to focus.
Don't Use Headlight or Laser Sight
Never go outside during the day or night with a light attachment on your helmet or your gun, and don’t attach a laser sight to your gun either. There is a known bug with the headlamp that can be seen as “on” to others but “off” to you. So you are running around at night with your headlight on, allowing everyone to spot you from miles away, but you see it as off. Same with the laser sight and gun light attachment. I never use them as a rule of thumb. Up the gamma to max instead.
7 DAYS TO DIE PVP SERVER BOT COMMANDS
Our PvP Server has a few commands that you can use in certain situations. Not as much as the PvE servers, but some worth mentioning. For example, if you are a donator of our Patreon page, you get access to a special trader POI. You can access this by typing in /Trader. You will be teleported to the donor trader that has 4 traders inside. To get back to your last location, just type /Return. Note that inside the Donor trader is a none PVP zone. You are not allowed to shoot anyone inside the trader. If you do, your donor status will be revoked.
On the PvP Causal Server, you have 2 extra commands to help you out. One is /Bed which teleports you back to your bed, and the other is /Bag which teleports you back to your bag. There is a delay in the teleports, so you can’t use them to escape trouble like whilst in a PvP fight. Also, be careful with the /Bag teleport. If you got killed by another player, they might still be in the area or looting your bag. If you keep teleporting to your bag whilst they are there, they are well in the rights to shoot you again.
Please Note: Typing /Trader twice will get you stuck in the trader. If you do /Trader twice and get stuck, no Admin will teleport you out as players have done this on purpose to escape from raiding another players base. The trader is closed from 10pm to 6am. If you are in the donor trader at this time, you will teleport outside the trader where you are vulnerable to PVP. You will have to wait until this happens to get outside the donor trader and make your way back to base from there.
