Host: Female teenagers
22 April 2009
- After Free Update, this zombie is available free to use for all players.
An abomination created by Dr. Rex by using the weakest body parts, this zombie is code-named as 'Light type'. This specimen boasts fast movement and good jumping ability but is vulnerable when attacked.
The Light zombie's movement is quick making it hard to be hit, however, it is helpless when attacked by enemies and can be easily knocked away. It has the ability to cloak itself to avoid being seen by its enemies. However, when using the ability, its knockback resistance and movement speed decrease greatly and she won't be able to heal injuries.
After the Zombie Mode Rework patch, High Jumping skill is added ( by default), making her able to jump higher.
- Light zombie's model is slim-built, making it harder to be aimed by humans
- Faster movement speed and higher jump height than other zombies
- Has the ability to cloak itself
- Able to perform a long range leap (Zombie 4: Darkness only)
- Low defensive power
- Can be easily knocked back by most weapons
- Slow movement speed and much lower defense while cloaking
- Makes a noticable sound when activating her ability which may alert nearby humans
- Inability to regenerate HP while cloaking
- Has very low health points in Zombie: The Union
|Zombie Type||Skill Time (s)||Cooldown Time (s)|
- Bunnyhop to move faster and confuse your enemies.
- Avoid direct attack as the Light zombie has low knockback resistance.
- In Zombie: The Hero, Do not use the 'invisibility' skill in an area where you need to be crouching (such as the vent in Assault) if you're still a host zombie, as your movement speed will be slowed down greatly, and you can not regain it back until the invisibility has faded or you are out of the crouching area. Wait until you evolve to origin Light zombie as this restriction is removed in the skill.
- Weapons with wide spread shot (most shotguns) or high rate of fire (most machine guns) are recommended when encountering this zombie as you can easily hit the zombie with these type of weapons than other weapons.
- Do not engage a Light zombie alone as she has quick movement speed and higher jump height than other zombies.
- Always stay alert to the sound of the activation of its [Invisibility].
- If the Light zombie is using its [Invisibility], you can track it by her shadow on the ground by turning on the flash lights. Other ways to track invisible Light zombies are throwing Firebomb or Holy Bomb.
- When the Origin Light zombie uses its [Invisibility] ability, it can be tracked easily because there are some red translucent blood stains on the zombie.
- This zombie can be one, two shotted by weapons with high single shot damage (like Red Dragon Cannon and Magnum Drill right click) while your 'deadly headshot' skill is active. With this you can single-handedly deal with this zombie alone.
- Light Zombie has only 800 health points (1300 with Strong Lifepower), making it the weakest zombie alongside Banshee in this mode.
- Using the "Invisibility" skill will increase its damage by 3× but decrease its movement speed.
- The "Invisibility" skill stacked with the "3X DAMAGE" item will deal a whopping 9x damage.
Zombie 4: Darkness
- New sounds have been added for her in Zombie 4: Darkness as well as a new appearance.
- In Zombie 4: Darkness, upon using the Invisibility skill, her speed is greatly increased and laughs when doing so. Light zombie also has a new ability which is Leap, a jump with a higher speed and height.
- Both Origin and Host models lack the wrist cuts.
- The Origin model shows black wires tying the Light Zombie's fingers.
- If a Psycho Zombie uses the smokescreen skill while a light zombie uses invisibility, there will be a void in the smokescreen showing a shape of a transparent light zombie revealing the player (depends on video rendering settings).
- Sometimes after a light zombie is killed, it makes a long exhaling sound before dying.
- Its health regenerating sound is a shortened version of the exhaling sound.
- During Christmas event, Light zombie players can hide behind the supply boxes due to its large size.
- Due to Mainland China's censorship laws, origin Light Zombie is retextured so that it is less bloody. This change also affects its shop icon.
- She alongside Sting Finger, are unable to respawn until they have finished playing their custom death animations.
- One of its death sounds resembles the Witch's scream from Left 4 Dead, another game made by Valve.
- After Zombie Scenario Re:boot, there is a new Throw-type Zombie which has the skin of Light Zombie and green colored. Their function is similar to Throw-type Regular Zombies, and only appear in Lost City so far.
- The Zombie 4: Darkness model of this zombie appears in Omen chapter as a decoration, alongside other Zombie 4: Darkness's zombies.
- After the Zombie Mode Rework patch, its armor has been decreased slightly.
- This is the only playable zombie type in Zombie Tag.
