Survivor Mode is a game mode featured in Dead Island: Retro Revenge. It is unlocked by completing the final level of the story mode, level 3-8, along with Marathon Mode.

Survivor Mode is just an endless wave defence game mode, somewhat reminiscent of the Bloodbath Arena DLC for Dead Island, where Max is pitted against waves of enemies until he is overwhelmed. Upon selecting the game mode from the main menu, you are prompted to choose your Super Weapon and Magic power before jumping straight into wave 1. Max must survive for 1 minute against waves of enemies until finishing the wave, upon which the wave ends and he is thrown into wave 2 to restart the cycle.

Gameplay differences[]

  • Max does not regain health between each wave. He will carry over whatever health he had left at the end of the previous wave, If you had 1 health left, you will start with 1 health in the next wave.
  • No random drops. Instead crates are rewarded for killing a certain amount of zombies without taking damage. Getting on a 30 kill streak will award a POW crate, for example. The crate will spawn on the next screen scroll.
  • All enemies can appear from wave 1. The waves do not start off easy and increase in difficulty. Instead ALL enemies can appear right from the start, with late game enemies appearing next to level 1-1 enemies.
  • The Score Multiplier carries over between waves. Like how Max's health carries over, the score multiplier does as well. If you end a wave with a x3 multiplier, you will start the next wave with a x3 as well.
