Zombie Infection Mod 1.8.8/1.7.10 is a mod with the purpose of adding that element missing on the Minecraft Vanilla Zombies, adding a new potion effect called infection, which has a 10% chance of appearing if a zombie hits you. If you get infected, you will receive a message on the chat that says “You have been infected, find the cure.” after that you will have to find the cure as fast as you can. You also get certain effects when infected, such as:

  • Infection (Adds the other effects)
  • Slowness (Slows the player down)
  • Mining Fatigue (Makes the player dig slower)
  • Hunger (You WON’T be able to recover any food bar until you find the cure, try if you want)
  • Weakness (The player does less-damage to other entities)
  • Wither (After 8 minutes have passed without supplying the cure)


There is also 25% of probabilities that if you hit a specific mob while you’re infected, it will give the mob the wither effect, and there is another 25% chance that if the mob has the wither effect active and you hit him again while you’re infected, then the mob will die and revive as a zombie version of the mob.

For now only the following mobs can be infected:

  • Villagers
  • Pigs
  • Chickens
  • Cows
  • Sheeps
