This topic is all alone; so, here's some debates! Hopefully they are, indeed, debates.

Why do you think the Witch cries?

What do you think decides what Special Infected people become?

I'll add what I think in the next post ...

A witch is has managed to hold onto one sliver of emotion- which just do happens to be sadness.

And I believe genes determine what Special Infected become.

Personally, i think Witches aren't fully infected; as in their minds are still half-there. They realize what's happening to them, and are in an extremely fragile state. Obviously, their minds are extremely degraded, and slowly failing.

And also, I think a large number of variable determine how Special infected happen. What sort of person is infected, the situation in which they are infected, the environment around them, etc.

Yes! Now, I'm /horrible/ at explaining things -- so bear with me.

I think the Witch cries because she still has some part of her mind left -- notice how they tend to stay away from the Survivors, and only attack once bothered. I think this is because the feral-Infected part of their mind takes over. If you notice that once they kill someone, they'll run off, head in hands, crying.

Anyways, the reason I think she cries is because she still has part of her human mind intact. She knows what a monster she is, what happened to her, and probably has some memories of her human life.

I'll post the reason I think of how it's decided of who becomes what Special Infected later. Pizzas done.

Well the infection also acts as a mutation, so it is the person themselves that determines who they will be infected. Their human aspects are mutated into infected ones.

Yeah; like with the Hunter, I think the person pre-Infection, would be very athletic/does Parkor.

The Boomer, I think was someone who was more obese or has an eating disorder.

Witch was someone who had Depression, or Anorexia.

And ect ..

Yus exactly. The smoker, obviously a smoker.

But what about some of the ones from Left 4 Dead 2? Like the Spitter? And the Charger?

2/18/2013 #8

Charger, I have no idea.

The Spitter though .. I can't remember the name of it; but it's acid something. Slightly like bulimia ..

2/18/2013 #9

What like acid reflux?

2/18/2013 #10

Yes! I knew it was something like that.

2/18/2013 #11

I suppose that makes sense.

The charger could be a farmer who, uhm... *cough* plays a lot of tennis.

2/18/2013 #12


The Charger/Farmer thing, yes. He does wear overalls!

2/18/2013 #13

Yeah! But the whole one armed thing is a bit confusing, besides a serious case of chronic masturbation I can't think of anything.

Charger: That must be the feller who masturbates all day!

I've heard about cases where hillbillies who commit incest sometimes have babies with severe birth defects. One of them involves one arm being bigger than the other.
2/18/2013 #16

That makes sense. The hillbillies I'm forced to sit through class with each day pretty much prove the whole incest theory correct.

The easiest to think about are the Hunter, the Tank, the Boomer, and the Smoker. I think the hardest to explain would be the Jockey, the Spitter, and the Witch.
2/18/2013 #18

Isn't the jockey just, well, a jockey? You know, the short little guys that ride horses and do crack?

2/18/2013 #19

The Witch; -- Depression/Anorexia.

They were given their name because they resemble their horse-riding counterparts. I don't think they were actual jockeys.
2/18/2013 #21

But it makes sense for them to have been jockeys. Jockeys are short and light, they ride horses for a living, and they and their horses are usually strung up on drugs.

Yeah... I live in Chicago, so I don't see many 'hillbillies' around here.
2/18/2013 #23


Jeep, Pickup Truck, or Hummer, which do you think would best in the zombie apocalypse? :3

... I would pick the Hummer.

I know nothing of vehicles. Pickup truck, because there's one in my garage and (I think) it can hold more people)

3/16/2013 #25

Omgz, you're alive.
