I was looking on GitHub on what people where implementing and saw that someone wants to implement zombies where the mutations had gone so far that they became debilitating to the zombies. I like the idea and thought i might help out be giving some suggestions of my own:
- Snapping Mound, basically a hulk that got to swol and is now ripping itself apart internally whenever it moves, which can be heard LOUDLY. Is very slow and cannot attack or throw you since its muscles and weight restrict its movements to much. It deals cut/bullet damage to itself when it moves, this with the new bleed system makes it so that it leaves a trail of blood behind as it crawls over to you eventually killing itself.
“This zombie is a gigantic mound of huge bulging muscles, to the point that it restricts it’s movements to a almost crippling degree. When it moves loud wet snapping and cracking can be heard and blood comes out of its orifices and spontaneous rupturing skin.”
- Dissolving zombie, basically a zombie that has generated to much acid to quickly and partially dissolved itself while melting of any discernible features. It cannot attack, move or even react to anything. It has no loot since that was al dissolved in the acid. Al it does if generate an acid pool on it’s square and the squares adjacent to it.
"All of this zombie discernible features seem to have been molten off. It being little more than a heap of slime coated flesh on the ground with a vaguely in a humanoid shape slowly dissolving in its own acid.:
- Ossified statue, basically a skeletal hulk whose bone armour started to fuse making it unable to move at all and turning it into a living statue. Can’t move or attack, but it does have all of the senses that a normal zombie has. Has higher armour value’s than normal skeletal hulk as well as more mass to make it at least a good roadblock.
“This statue looks like the work of a mad sculptor. Ossified skin and bony overgrowths fused together to make a deformed mockery of the human form. The only thing that betrays it’s undead nature is the black eyes that follow you as it silently watches the apocalypse unfold.”
- Starved zombie, a zombie isn’t given enough energy by the blob and got impossibly thin and weakened to the point of complete immobility. Basically just sits there and doesn’t do anything.
“You would mistake this zombie to be just another corpse if it wasn’t for the fact that it’s eyes move and it makes the smallest of movements. The fact that it is able to move at all is a miracle as it seems to consist of nothing more than bones that are visible through the skin.”
