Why are the zombies bleeding to death?

I'm not having a problem with the game mechanics. Currently Zombies bleed out. If the next update removes that, i'd be still fine and still won't ask a question why zombies stopped bleeding out. It's pointless, there is no universal  biology atlas that explains how zombies phyisics work you could refer to. The devs decide how the mechanic works, it they decide zombies can bleed out, it is like it is. The "why"-question is invalid, because the since there is no overal rulework, the answer is "because we decided it to work like this".

why would they even remove it ..  our zombies have clearly liquid blood (every zombie withou heartbeat is bs because muscles simply cannot work withou oxygen so unless zombies magically fly around then both breathing  heartbeat and liquid blood must stay intact)

...  you can clearly see blood squirting out  when limb/ head get dismembered

 

so yeah they might have crazy coagulation .... but they have liquid blood ... ergo original question is completely st*pid

bet next one is going to be  .. why blocks fall down instead up  ... or why we cant drink from bucket

What's "st*pid" is being able to shoot them in the face over and over again until you can't event see their head for all the arrows poking out like a wooden porcupine.  Or shooting them with bullets over and over, reloading and shooting them some more. Yet we can stab them a few times and just kite them around while they bleed out and die.  If you shoot something in the face, it should die.  Period.

They need to be consistent in their damage model.  If they bleed out from being stabbed, that's fine, but they should also bleed out from being shot. 


EDIT: Yeah, why can't we drink from the bucket.  😛  It's a container with water in it. But then, i've also wondered why we can't just drink directly from a pond.

if i shot them with ok-ish gun ( 100)  dmg its 300 damage  bleeding fromd serrated mod  is  10%  to  1damage/sec    ..  machetter   1damage/sec stacking up to  7  ... so you using clearly weakest weapon in game ( knives have lowest reach and  2nd lowest dmg after spear)   to apply  6/sec  short debuff  by stabing them in face for  150 damage what a gamechanger

or simply just shot them for  300-600  .. bleeding isnt major factor .. if you look at numbers best melee weapon is club

 

on default  difficulty everything  dies in  2 head shots from desert vulture/ rifle   only  bears and possibly demolisher cantake third one to kill

 

to kill basic feral wight you need to stack full bleed wait 10sec and repeat  17 times to kill him (ignoring the fact he would regen significant part of your bleed damage :D)

 

1) we dont know if zombies even need head you can meet headless variants in many universes

2) most people shot in face survive and they are not even crazy mutated iradiated zombie jumping  24 meters

3) bleed is weak mechanic almost cosmetic

4) 4 of your zombies have helmet  ith ptoential to reduce damage

5)  if headshot meant always then game turns ridiculouslye asy once you get smg  ... or even pistol  .. demolisher ?  nevermind my 20 dmg  will  1 hit him ... nope even head explosion chance is kinda OP  ...  guaranteed kills devalue weapon stats progressiona dn difficulty all at once

 

err stop bringing realistic  headshots into game where you crouch and  your billet magically deal alot more damage

In the early game i did a lot of melee with the bone knife and hunting knife.  I could watch the zombies bleed out and die after a few jabs.  How can a zombie with missing bits, holes in their head, etc, bleed to death?

We do not know all the rules around these particular zombie iterations. Maybe they do have something like blood...or maybe they aren't bleeding, but so extensively damaged that they stop functioning.
