Origin Psycho zombie
23 December 2009
- After the Free Update patch, this zombie becomes a free default faction in all player's inventories.
This zombie was originally a co-worker biologist of Dr.Rex, when he was a human. He turned into a zombie in an accident, earning the nickname of 'psycho type'. The Origin Psycho Zombie has the 'Smokescreen' skill that screens an area with thick smoke.
This type has good base stats. The main role of this zombie is to support other zombies by suppressing enemies at distance.
- Smokescreen: Detonates black powder to screen the surrounding area with black smoke. Friendly targets in the smoke take less damage from enemy. The Psycho zombie's health will regenerate based on the amount of damage that the smoke absorbed.
- Healing: This skill was added after Zombie Mode Rework patch, making them able to heal themselves with a certain amount of HP.
- Can pop out black smoke
- Can heal itself
- Zombies in the smoke are hard to be seen
- The black smoke reduces mouse sensitivity and smoothness of enemies
- Zombies in the smoke absorbs less damage from humans
- Regenerates health when the smoke disappears
- Due to Psycho zombie's model, it is easier to shoot it on the head
Psycho zombies appear in all chapters of Zombie Scenario.
- Both Origin and Host Psycho zombies were previously surgeons and doctors from the Rex Research Institute which were infected by the zombie virus.
- After becoming an Origin Psycho zombie, the hand view model in a first person view will still show the hand of a normal zombie instead of a hook, which can be seen in a third person view of the Origin Psycho zombie model.
- In the China region, Psycho zombie models are used to replace the gruesome models of the original Regular zombies. The Psycho zombie uses the same model except with red-paint, so as to differ from real Psycho zombies.
- If Psycho zombies use their smokescreen ability while a Light zombie uses its invisibility skill, there will be a void in the smokescreen showing the shape of a transparent light zombie (depends on the players video rendering settings).
- Psycho Zombie has 2000 (2500 with Strong Lifepower) health points and 200 (250 with Strong Lifepower) armor points in Zombie: The Union.
- After the Zombie Mode Rework, its defense has been increased slightly.
