A Hornet is a hostile type of animal in the game. They can typically be found in wastelands or ruined cities.
They will emit very loud 'buzzing' sounds when nearby a player. Hornets move slowly, tending to fly high over streets, only occasionally swooping down to attack unwary players.
Combat[edit | edit source]
Hornets attack with straight-forward dive bombs and slow, circular strafing maneuvers close to the player, making it simple to line up a shot or to eliminate them with a melee weapon.
They have a tendency to charge in on players distracted with looting containers or bodies, taking advantage and attacking from behind. Keeping alert for close buzzing noises is a good way to avoid being caught off-guard.
Hornets will typically spawn around large zombie hordes in wastelands or cities. They can also spawn with 7 Day hordes, although this is uncommon.
Loot[edit | edit source]
Hornets will almost always drop Jars of Honey upon death.
If a Hornet is killed with a Hunting Knife a player will loot three additional Honey Jars.
