Refuel and repair

The following items are needed to fuel and repair the Minibike:

Operation / Controls

Mouse ← - Steer left
Mouse → - Steer right
LMB - use to change control to WASD
W - Throttle (move forward)
S - Brake (stop) / Reverse
SPACEBAR - Handbrake (quick stop)
F - Toggle Headlight On/Off
E - Mount/Dismount.
Hold E to bring up the radial menu. Radial menu actions include: Drive, Access info panel, Access storage, Refuel, Repair, Honk horn, Lock/Unlock, Set Pincode and the option 'Take' which puts vehicle back in inventory.
X - Honk horn
Shift - Sprint


  • Can not be sold to traders.
  • Zombies cannot outrun even the slowest Minibike, making it invaluable for traveling at night, especially during Blood Moon Hordes.
  • The Lead Car Battery loses durability quicker than other parts if lights are on but recovers otherwise without repair.
  • Hitting zombies will damage the Minibike.
  • When destroyed, the Minibike will begin to smoke and refuse to move. Upon dismounting, it will disappear, making it impossible to recover any parts or items that may have been stored inside.
  • Attempting to remount a bike that has been hit or damaged by a weapon may cause repeated death.
  • The quality of the Frame determines the Defense.
  • The quality of the Handlebar affects the brightness of the headlight.
  • Higher quality batteries have a bigger charge.
  • Upon contact with water, the Minibike will be rendered unusable. It must be disassembled and the chassis must be picked up via the radial menu by holding <E>.
  • Exiting the minibike at full speed will not damage the player and will bring the minibike to a quick stop.
  • If the game crashes and the minibike disappears, it may show back up after about 5 minutes.

Admin/Server Notes

  • The Minibike and current Alpha notes are being collated to enable full & smooth functionality.
  • Minibike Losses/Disappearing Issues can sometimes be the reason for overall server lag.
  • It is also possible that the bike is not at the point it vanishes.
  • A disappeared Minibike is generally found between 1 and 2 blocks below the surface.
  • Fastest Known Fix on Lag is to replace the region file for that square (Bear in mind this will also restore that block to default and any player base will be wiped)
  • Other options, remove all players from Minibike Area or Restart server in PW mode so only admin can join, Run in low res windowed Mode to dig the bike out.
  • Average Fix Time based on history 5 mins to 3hrs.
