I’d say this is less a bug but more of a bit of a design flaw.
Basically, to definitely get through the day you can just wait for the timer to go down before respawning - and then respawn when the timer is done.
I’m sure this game mode is still being developed as it does have some fundamental flaws. I just wanted to have mentioned this just in case. (Don’t get me wrong though - It’s a lot of fun already)
Should’ve posted this in Zombie Massacre Beta probably.
