Mother zombies are the players randomly selected to be infected when the game begins.
Mother zombies start with 2 gold swords enchanted with Sharpness I (Because of a glitch). When a mother zombie dies, it respawns with only one enchanted gold sword. Mother zombies will still have one enchanted gold sword no matter how many times they die. Mother zombies have the same armour as regular zombies, are able to buy items from the shop, and can earn the same killstreaks as normal zombies.
The number of Pigmen chosen depends on how many players are online. The minimum is 2 and the maximum is 7.
- A Mother Zombie's head will appear to stay still — looking in the same direction as when the player spawned — even if the player is looking elsewhere.
