Yes, the cop acid will degrade your gun and armor if you get hit and cause DOT to structures probably.

The fat hawaiian shirt guy will be like pig pen and have a cloud of toxic gas that causes asphyxiation. No more spoilers for a while :)

Looking awesome. :) One small nitpick though, will we be seeing a health buff to cops and "gassers" in the future? Currently, the former is a bit weaksauce and it sort of takes away a lot from the threat in my opinion.

A crawler that can move at 'sprint' speed would be the scariest zombie in the game especially with their new corpse-ripped-in-half model.

ive always wanted to see a feral crawler do this, you see it when it spans or sleeping, looks normal, then it screams and blood spurts out where its legs are supposed to be and now it looks like a cobbled together wight

I have an idea for a mutated fly human gross looking thing but we were a little worried it might turn into a hornet 2.0 issue that people wouldn't like it.

Now I really want this to be a thing. Personally I really LOVED the hornets and thought they were well done and a good idea. Plus with the new buff system would make them more acceptable for "treating" infections from imo.

Not everyone is a native English speaker. Not everyone reads and writes in the same way. Sometimes it is people's phones doing weird things.

 

But belittling someone because you, personally, have OCD and cannot just overlook the error is just as annoying to some as the errors are you to you.  (Okay, and to me, but I take a deep breath and move on.)  

 

There's no reason to be mean ... it is entirely possible that the person you are mocking is communicating in a non-native language or has other issues with spelling/cognitive function.  I have a dear friend who is one of the smartest people I know, but he cannot spell to save his life. His brain just doesn't work that way.

 

So get your head out of your behind and stop being a supercilious (insert common nickname for male genitalia). If it really bothers you that much ... perhaps you should stop reading.  Or just skip over the posts from those who commit these atrocious assaults onto your tender little eyeballs.

I didn't mock anyone and simply described my point of view and expressed that I appreciated Jost's humorous post.
I also acknowledged already that some people have reasons that are beyond their ability to change, which is something I'd never make fun of with the intention of belittling them. So keep your outrage on behalf of others elsewhere.

Some will be very similar to the original like the screamer and fat cop. Spider looks a little more monstrous now and slightly mutated. The screamer has more of a witch look to her and her mouth hinges very wide and has a glasgow smile and rows of sharp teeth, black eyes, etc. There is a radiated zombie with tumors all over his back like the hump back of notre dame almost and he can tear one off and throw it at players causing radiation damage and several others we can reveal as they progress. We are still working on visual design though so things can change some as we work through the iterations.

We're losing the iconic screamer model? sadface...

Do we actually have a polling on that? I constantly seem to see people who say they miss the "bees".

But i must say this looks the closest to a baby zombie we could get without the game being banned in certain countries 😄

Dude, if we get the fly in game, we could have a bloater zombie that when it is killed a few of the flys burst out of it and come after you, oh the possibilities

That sounds so freakin scary 😮 I love it :D

Or if you kill it above you, acid spills out over you. That would hurt a lot.

technically they could do it with the hawaiian shirt zombie, dont change a thing about him, but when he dies he has a few crawlers come out of him, it would look sloppy to have them spawn around him after a few seconds, but just as an example to try, and that bunker buster we dont think about much anymore lol

I think that on the internet in general and in the gaming industry of late the "special" zombie lore has already increased by leaps and bounds... the real problem here is that TFP have too much material to use for inspiration. So the most difficult part IMO will be choosing something that is in line with the general look and feel of the game.

 

  1. Up to now we know that the virus infects not only people who look "almost alive", but also long dead bodies.
  2. We also know it can affect dogs (?dire wolves?), bears and vultures, but for some reason does NOT affect chickens, rabbits, stags/does, boars, mountain lions, coyotes and the normal wolves (oh, I forgot snakes!).
  3. We have seen mutations that give special abilities to the undead, like the jumping skill of the spider, the rallying cry of the screamer or the puking attack of the cop (don't know if we can consider a "special ability" the demo blowing up... seems more like something tied to his pre-death gear).

Based on these points TFP have a wide (but not infinite) range of possibilities for choosing the new special infected (if they wish to keep the current look & feel).

IMO they should also consider to stay in theme with the Arizona lore...

I do agree, seeing more infected animals would be awesome, it could be down the road to, so far, madmole simply teasing some of the special infected, i have high hopes

along with vultures, if we wanted a stronger varient, i would go nuts to see a zombified bald eagle and golden eagle imagine being divebombed by those

Nice idea! But then it would also prey on vultures probably... 😁

 

Edit : actually it would be great if the bald eagle could be like the (alive) wolf and attack vultures which are zombies... she would be the wolf of the sky!
