Do Deadeye Walkers shoot the nearest Survivors they get in their line of sight ?

How to resolve their attack ? Do they deal all their damage to the same Survivor like feeding frenzy allows to play ?

We had the case this night : 3 Survivors in a zone and 4 Deadeye able to attack them. 1 of the Survivor had an armor :
- should he decide how many hits he takes before doing his armor roll or can he roll for 1 hit and see if he becomes in danger with failed armor rolls and let his comrades take the remaining hits ?
- if he dies and there are remaingin hits, are those hits dealt to the other Survivors of this zone or is the dead Survivor taking a feeding frenzy ?

You always assign all hits before rolling armor.

I see no reason it wouldn't follow the normal rules. All the rolls are assigned at once before any armor and such, so there's definitely the potential for overkill on a hero.

It may not be a feeding frenzy, but they can still focus fire one target.

No. The rules for Deadeyes state they follow the following priority order:
1- The Zone with the most Survivors.
2- The noisiest Zone.
3- The players choose.

Like any other attack. In fact, they will also deal their hits at the same time as Zombies in the target Zone, combining with that feeding frenzy.

Must resolve all hits in a single roll, not separate. This is always the case. In other words, this attack is like any other attack, it's just that the Deadeyes can hit at range.

so if 3 heroes are in line of sight of 3 deadeye with one hero in between them.

would the dead eye walkers shoot the zone with 3 heroes becuase they are the noisiest or would the dead eye walker shoot the 1 hero in between them? can they shoot over other heroes?

Neither of the options you specified is correct. They would shoot the 3 Survivors, but they do it because there are more Survivors there, not because their Zone is noisier.

For example, if the 1 Survivor had three noise tokens in their Zone and the three Survivors didn't have any, then the 1-Survivor Zone has more noise (4 vs. 3), yet the Deadeye Walkers will still target the Zone with most Survivors, as per the priority list I reproduced from the rules earlier.

Yes, the Deadeyes will ignore intervening Zones, even if they have other Survivors.
