Zombie Suggestion: Runner Infector

4 posts in this topic

Through messing around with the SDK and porting NMRiH content to Garry's Mod, I found the unused "Runner" and "Jessica" infected models which are quite glitchy. So I thought how to make use of them, by making them infectors.

Description

Probably drug addicts in life, they carry all sorts of dangerous diseases, from HIV to AIDS to even the Virus that caused all of this. They are like the Runner infected, albeit slightly slower and weaker. One thing that makes them dangerous is that he can transmit the infection in one hit. It's probably best to prioritise them over all infected as they can ravage a whole team in just a single hit.

In-Game

The Infector uses the unused "Runner" and "Jessica" model (both which are glitched, but use them as placeholders anyways) and has a higher chance to spawn and die sleeping. Likewise, he has a very high chance to infect a player in 1 hit, making him a thread to a whole team. If suitable, he uses the old Children voicelines due to his voice being mangled by both his previous drug life and the virus. They bite too, which instantly infects the player.

If you disagree, please explain why, in a polite manner. Likewise, feedback and suggestions are welcome.

Sure, I don't mind being polite.

I feel that this is sorta similar to the white infector zombies in Zombie Panic source, but a crucial difference is that in ZPS, you can only be infected by those white zombies. In this game, anything that can bite you can infect you. It seems like a guaranteed infestation would be a source of annoyance, not to mention conflict with normal runners.

Like, people already prioritize runners, but I don't think making them have a guaranteed infection rate would really help the group dynamics as far as suspicion and abandonment. "What, I saw that runner bite you. I'm sure it was a druggie runner- *shoot in the head*"

In a nutshell, the ambiguity for me forms a very large part of the drama and I heavily dislike the idea of taking that away, not to mention getting bit because a runner hits you.

I disagree and agree...

Disagree because you used the word thread while I'm pretty sure you meant threat (Just kidding :D)

The real issue is that the zombie runner is pretty much a fresh zombie that just died a few hours ago so it still has the strength and stamina (what's left of it) so it should be the same as other zombies. Other zombies that bite you isn't 100% going to infect you and so should runners because they're both zombies.

I disagree with this for two reasons.

First off, a server can set the infection odds and the infection time delay.

Second, I don't like the idea of special infected, especially in that manner as its been done to death.
