A suicide zombie that runs at you and then explodes rather than actually attacking you physically, dealing blast damage to every player in the vicinity. Make them fast but easy to kill, so if you're paying attention, you're pretty safe, but if you aren't, you'll end up with an explosive zombie leaping into your group.

That would be scary as hell. Granted, with suicide bombing being so prevalent these days, I doubt we'd see something like that in the next version. Not a bad idea though. I'd poop my pants.

a harder version of a tank..

idc if you are on any difficulty, if you are in a open area, and keep moving, you can avoid him, and if he throws the rock, its easy to dodge it..

they need to add something to him to actually make him a challenge
not new infected, but just a idea..

The only problem with the current Tank is that his difficulty depends entirely on where you encounter him, not his actual power in combat. Like you said, if you meet one in the open, it's a joke; your team kites him for 30 seconds and he's a giant corpse on the ground. All you need to do to dodge his thrown rocks is move any direction that you aren't already going after one leaves his hands.

On the other hand, catching one in a building is horrible, during a horde is nearly suicidal, and if there are a bunch of cars around, you may as well just save him the time and shoot yourself in the head. I've seen an entire team incapped by him smashing through a parking lot and suddenly hurling five cars in all directions (especially since the "hit box" for a car is HUGE - the thing can miss you by 5 feet and still count as a hit, incapping you instantly). He doesn't really need to be tougher or faster, he just needs to have something that gives him an edge in an open field.

I would like a conjoined smoker so you have 2 smokers to kill.You'll also have to deal with 2 tongue attaks. That's it for me.

An Infected (Host Infected) that's established a hive mind with several other "minion Infected" (unique to this Infected only; this Host Infected can't use Common/Uncommon/Special Infected) and can periodically send them out to target specific Survivors. The minion Infected sent by this would be slightly more powerful, durable, and faster than Common Infected. Up to three could be sent out at a time. However, the Host Infected itself is incredibly fragile (a simple shove on Easy, several pistol shots on Hard/Expert would be enought to kill it), and if it dies, all the Infected minions it controls are sent into brain death, effectively killing them. If a minion Infected dies, it cannot respawn.

The theory would be that this Infected along with its minions had been triplets/ identical siblings before Infection, and its bond with them had been greatly strengthened due to the effects of the virus.

I think a weak enemy that could fly areound might be cool, it could carry infected down with hordes, but they would have to have low health to keep them from being too op

No no NO. Worst thing that could ever happen to L4D. Zombies using weapons (especially guns) is an extraordinarily terrible propostition.

How you figure? That would make the game more of a challenge and you would have to use more skill to take them out.

Sorry i'm not watching that video the office was a dumb show.

Ever played dead island they made the zombies use weapons and it works perfectly.
You might as well ask me why putting a gun to your own head is a bad idea. It's pretty obvious.

Unfamiliar with the Internet, it would seem.

Given your other posts on the forums, arguing with you about why your idea is the worst thing that could happen to L4D would be an exercise in futility, so I'm just not going to. It would completely ruin L4D and everybody with a bit of sense knows it.

Then go play Dead Island.

resident evil 6 has that, kinda. if a soldier is turned, he walks slow and randomly shoots it around (rarely hits me though.. )

Zombies that could shoot would change the game dynamics entirely. It wouldn't even be the same kind of game anymore. It'd be less of a sequel and more of a spin-off.

Agree, for shooting zombies there is Doom :)
Ninjabutter Feb 25 @ 10:06pm 
That's actually the first thing I thought too. I grew up playing Doom and loved it, but I don't want L4D being a copy of it.

Two infected Siamese twins. I don't know what could be their power, but I think idea by itself is kinda good. And I also think that zombies with guns is a ♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥ idea. This would make no sense whatsoever!
