If you’re a fan of the popular survival game 7 Days to Die, then you know that one of the key elements to success is horde size. But what exactly is a horde size? And how can you use it to your advantage? Keep reading to find out!
What is a Horde Size?
The size and difficulty of a horde are proportional to your player level and the number of times you’ve killed, in addition to some other factors.
Regardless of your difficulty settings or player level, you will receive no more than 8 zombies at a time during the horde. This is due to performance concerns, and TFP hopes to change this in the future.
What Are Hordes?
Hordes are large groups of zombies that can be extremely annoying or even fatal if they catch you off guard and in a vulnerable position. Such zombie gangs can include any zombie type, even animals.
Except for screamers, who roam around aimlessly like maniacs, these zombies function as a group and collectively follow the course.
They can, however, be rather difficult because they may scream and summon additional zombies, increasing the size of the horde. Depending on the horde type, different hordes behave  differently on 7 Days to Die.
