Are you still having issues?

Justin, hurry up to modify this bug they all know this secret now they are playing in survival mode, the server card dead.

Which server are you seeing this issue?

Justin, how are you, yesterday I enter the game play multiplayer server I point into a living room there are two robots I was bored so I quit to see the room struck the number is 1012 and then I quit, but found that I can get the pieces, so I go into the living room and at the result out I got the pieces, and lead to the players through illegal hand broken to pieces, request the author to fix the bug as soon as possible!


O (studying studying) O thank Justin!

Well the author! I don't know how to say with you, is like this, I don't have a Steam account is not in the Steam download Deadswitch 3, I just login in Deadswitch 3, but I open the login interface card for a while it suddenly shows server error, will stay in the attempt, I open it again is like just now, I have no Steam.

Is it possible your network is blocking access to the account server?

You can test it by visiting this URL: https://ds3acc-us.wilkingames.net

But I want to login, the system shows a server error.

Are you using any sort of proxy/VPN?

The author.Must login to steam, to be able to login Deadswitch 3?

No, Steam is not required to login to DS3!

I want to log in to the account but the display server error to.

Hey do you mean you cannot login to your Deadswitch 3 account?


The game is totally working in x32 windows version

hola el juego no quiere entrar lo descargue por aquí y por steam y sigue igual solo entra carga los archivos y se sale solo de repente sin decir nada será un error nuevo?

Por cierto mi pc es window 10 pro con 4gb de ram y direct12 deberia agarrar como si nada ayudaaaaaa.

ITS not starting it shows black screen in steam edition and white screen in the itch.io version and linux version is not starting 

can add portuguese idiom?

It has trouble loading assets, same issue with the web version but the web version has only a tiny less trouble.


Played the full Steam Version, Y'all made a fine game :)

Thanks! :)

why i cannot open launch mean when i click then is not open :(

Are you on Linux? I have the same problem...

For Linux, try launching the game from the Itch Launcher!

I tried to open Deadswitch 3 on the mac (os big sur) with and without the itch.io launcher but all I got is a black screen.

Hey, this issue should now be fixed! 


Thank you so much it works now.

this game need to fix some bug of the operation and fix some lag for low pc

I really like this game, it reminds me of some of my absolute favorite flash games. The thing is is that the game always lags for me, even if I turn on performance mode. I'm using a macbook air, please help

can you make the full version on chrombook

You can install the Linux version on your Chromebook!


i dont know why, my system is x64-bit, but the game is more smother in 32 bit version of the game, really like this game though, kind of remember my childhood when lots of games using flash player.

Thanks for the comments! :)

The 32-bit version is recommended, even for 64-bit machines.

in my computer that game isnt workin :(

every time when i wanna play that game  i have blacscree

My comuter is windows 7


Make sure you run the proper file (windows-x32 or windows-x64) for your version of Windows.

If you're still having issues send me an email or message me on Discord!

thx man but now i have steam version of this

The most brutal enemy is lag.

I need u to put the theme back and get rid of those zombies who have guns me and my team tried and we all die to get rid of those fat zombies and to RPG and throwing khines   and they shot my turrets and helicopters they also and they are annyoing get rid of the armor they have plz   


Man you also took away the single fire for the auto shotguns :( Can you please release the development logs since you released the factory map?

(1 edit)

This update is cool but I already had purchased sleight of hand for this prestige and I can't edit my killstreak perks without purchasing it again because ninja for some reason is the same amount of kills that sleight of hand is. I do not like the killstreak perks changes I hope it will be reverted.  The hud update is nice because I can see weapons I'm able to pick up more clearly now. Bots on easy mode (I use them to level quickly)  will be targeting another bot but if the players comes into LOS of said bot they will instantly start to shoot at player without the aim delay they used to have from the last update. Otherwise the update seems to be good!


Dude this is really fun. I wish there were more people playing multiplayer but I'm sure the player base will build over time. Can you transfer free version profile data to PC version?

Whats up with the throwing knife zombie in Survival? I have ninja and juggernaut he throws a knife and it instantly kills me 

Ninja will reduce Throwing Knife damage, so unless you have full health before being hit you will still be killed!

I'm pretty sure I survived a direct hit from a Zombie Juggernaut knife in Pro Survival. XD

This game's MP mode work without using Steam or do users need Steam to play it online?

Multiplayer is available for all versions of the game!
