Death Tag is an Arcade minigame on Mineplex that was released on September 15th, 2013, and is a proposed successor to the Removed minigame Zombie Survival. In Death Tag, players must avoid being killed by Chasers to become the last player standing, by employing various tactics and abilities.

Aim of the gameEdit

Be the last one alive as you survive from the undead!

How to PlayEdit

You spawn in a decently sized map. When the game starts, one random player will become a Wither Skeleton, or an Alpha Chaser. Dead players become skeletons, or Chasers. Alpha Chasers are more powerful than Chasers. After a minute or so, Runners receive a permanent Speed I buff to help the Runners outpace the Chasers. The last man standing wins.

Note: If the Chasers do not kill a Runner for a while and the game is at a standstill, one random Runner will automatically join the Chasers team, to keep the game moving, as sometimes it can be slow paced.

Zombie Survival Edit

Main article: Zombie Survival

There was originally a game on Mineplex called "Zombie Survival". It was a zombie apocalypse type game that bears many similarities to Death Tag, including Alpha Wither Skeletons and of course the overall objective (be the last man standing). Although it has not been officially confirmed by Mineplex, it is very likely that Death Tag is the successor game to zombie survival.
