|Removed: Alpha 13|
One headshot with a 100% condition Pistol is enough to kill it on difficulties below insane. It's easy to strike a headshot on this zombie because of her movement, so using a Crossbow is recommended.
During night, the running behaviour is standard as all other zombies. If distance or sheer zombie numbers aren't a concern, scoring a headshot when it's running headfirst towards you can be slightly easier.
As of Alpha 10, decayed cheerleaders are slightly weaker than other zombies (3 100% condition non-crit headshots from a spiked club will drop them on insane vs 4 for standard zombies), but notably faster in both walking and running speed. When sniping a pack from an insecure location (e.g., the ground, while being chased), these should probably be second priority after dogs.
