1.70 Arcade Attack Update live from 10am PST / 6pm BST / 7pm CEST on April 27 2022

It’s 12 months since the release of Zombieland: Headshot Fever on Meta Quest, and XR Games has been working on something special to thank its 130,000+ Zombieland Quest players.


As a thank-you to all its players - for a whole year of zombie-slaying, brain-popping, TP-spending, PB-beating Headshot Fever action - XR Games is getting back to its roots! Zombieland: Headshot Fever is the fastest, most accurate VR lightgun game available, and this brand new Arcade Mode provides a new experience for veterans and new players alike.

Blast your way through a sequence of randomised levels, shooting new, hidden TP to gain currency. Spend that in the between-level store to get guns, brand new perks (including the Big Head perk!), extra med kits, and other bonuses. Each run is a new experience, requiring a different strategy! Replay value just went through the roof!

So if you’re up for the challenge, get back to the arcades with the Zombieland: Headshot Fever Arcade Attack Update, and show those zombies that you’re not dead yet!


For this patch (1.7.0):

Major Additions and Changes

  • Arcade Mode. A brand new mode enabling players to compete for the best run across five levels. Spend TP earned during the five courses at the upgrade shop to purchase special upgrades, perks and guns, or will you exchange one of your three lives for extra time?



Arcade Mode includes:

  • New arcade mode perks
  • Arcade Mode leaderboards
  • A new tutorial for Arcade Mode players
  • And more!

Note: Arcade Mode is accessible once players have unlocked the mezzanine in the game hub mansion. To do this, complete the ‘New Guy’s Home’ level of the game.  

Small Tweaks

  • Updated Hub area to accommodate new arcade mode
  • Added Arcade mode to the level select UI


  • Big Guy - Animation update to the Big Guy kill animation
