what do they do other than sound threatening?
They can evolve other, weaker, zombies to make them stronger.
So they only function well as a supporting zombie?
Correct. Eventually they are also planned to be a little smarter then normal zombies, potentially using some lower-level tools or doing trap avoidance.
What I find strange about them is that, much like dogs, they’ll follow you around and won’t attack you so long as they don’t get hurt (whether by you or anything else). Would be fun if you could tame or befriend them somehow (Bub the Zombie ftw).
zombie evolves into zombie dog
lol…I loved bub. Then again just thinking about taming a zombie then giving it a pistol would make me probably smash it’s brains in due to paranoia lol…
