Description[ | ]

Infected Survivor is one of the variants of Zombies. Probably just a normal citizen who got infected by the unknown virus and turned into a zombie.

Combat[ | ]

These Zombies are normal zombies with not a whole lot of HP or strength, but like all zombies they can stun you and cause trouble in groups. The Infected Survivor can spawn anywhere and is usually found in Day 7 hordes.

During the night, the running behaviour is the same as all other zombies. If distance or sheer zombie numbers aren't a concern, scoring a headshot when it's running towards you can be slightly easier.

This Zombie has erratic head movement, making it hard to headshot. It is best attacked in stealth as he moves less erratically when not pursuing a target.

Notes[ | ]

  • This zombie has been the standard model for most of the improvements made on zombies, like the mocap animations and the head reactions when getting shot.
  • This is referred by some as "Zombie Thick44" by fans of the Neebs Gaming community. Thick44 aka Tony, was part of a YouTube channel that has played 7D2D since A16. He lost his fight with cancer in February 2023. He was recently immortalized in A21 with his own flag that displays his logo.

The late Thick44 even mentioned the resemblance as he was also bald.
