Dead Frontier Wiki

In Dead Frontier, there are many weapons, armour, and terms. So many, however, that people in chat or the inner city often abbreviate commonly-used terms. To many veteran players, these abbreviations are recognized and familiar. To newer players, however, they are quite the opposite. Many know very little or few abbreviations; this leads to inconvenience to both the player and the community, as they often have to spend their time repeatedly explaining these terms. Due to this problem, a list has been made below to decode common abbreviations or acronyms, all of which are listed in alphabetical order for ease of access and convenience; there are also descriptions of each and occassionally a link to where you might find more information about the topic. While there are many terms listed below, there is a large chance that not every specific term will be listed below due to the large amounts of abbreviations. If you find an acronym that isn't on here, it'd be appreciated if you edited it down here.

    • The Green Fatty was one of three 'irradiated zombies' back from the classic Dead Frontier era. Much stronger than the irradiated zombie, the Green Fatty also spawned deeper in the city, usually between the charred-fatty zone, or the early parts of the fatty-long arm zone. Despite having their organs irradiated to that of a walking barrel of nuclear waste, and their stomach decomposed long ago, nothing can stop their hunger for blood.


  • Good game
    • Used to refer to fun time playing together.
    • Used sarcastically to refer to unfortunate incidents.


  • Grenade Launcher
    • An Explosive weapon that does area damage. 'Can also pass over obstacles that bullets cannot bypass.
  • Good Luck
    • A common wishing especially in Trades and Services section of the Forums. Used to hope by the poster that something would happen like a successful transaction.
  • Green Long Arm
    • A boss from 2D, the Green Long Arm was, supposadly, an extremely irradiated Long arm. They were similair to the regular irradiated zombie and the fat irradiated zombie, as they would almost always carry aggro with them regardless of their location. With longer reach, higher agility, and more health/damage, the Green Long Arm was really just a small step down from the infamous behemoth.


  • Gold Member
  • Green Muscle Zombie
    • A step above the normal irradiated zombie, the Green Muscle Zombie was an uncommon appearance, and frightening for anyone unlucky enough to cross paths with it. Spawning at the edges of the normal-charred parts of the city up to the beginnings of the charred-fatty, the Green Muscle Zombie really put up a fight compared to it's weaker cousin. A newer element found in the GM was it's ability to raise aggro--this usually meant the player would have to fight both the GM and the surrounding zombies around it.



  • Green irradiated zombie
    • Barely worth mentioning, the Green/Green irradiated zombie was the weakest of the irradiated zombies. Normally spawning a few blocks outside of the outpost, the Green zombie was simply a stronger/healthier version of the male zombies seen throughout most of the city. Despite their overall frightening appearance, the irradiated zombie was hardly a menace to more experience survivors--capable of mowing it down in less than a minute.
