Ranking the special infected
Hello, today i will be ranking the special infected (excluding tank and witch) from my personnal worst to best.
He is slow, and yet has to get up close to attack. He does the least damage out of any special infected, and is the only infected that can't kill his victims. In my opinion it is also hard to land an attack with him, and he is just not useful like the other infected.
I actually like the smoker, but i put him up here for the sole reason that he gives his survivors time to escape. Seriously, no other in-game infected give their victims this kind of sh!t, why is it here?
Probably one of the more fun infected to play. He does the most damage, is the fastest, and has instant recharge. I personally love him, but i feel i can only use him if a teammate is distracted or seperated. Despite being the coolest, he just isn't versitile enough, and is too situational.
In theory, boomer is the most useful infected. He is exellant for supporting the team, can use his own death as a weapon, and can blind/freeze multiple targets at once. He can also stand next to car alarms and witches, and can have another infected kill him in order to trigger the event. Boomer is very powerful, but despite this, he is rather boring to play (he is basically the medic of l4d)
Spitter is just simply amazing. She can attack all the survivors with a single acid glob, and one is enough for an incap, meaning she could do almost 400 damage in a single spit. Not only can she be used to attack the group and cause panic, but she can delay the way forward, stop others from helping eachother, and double damage to pinned targets...did i mention she can burn gas cans on scavenge? oh yeah, and she can do this all from a ranged distance...Awesome.
Some would argue that charger is useless, and hard to play. I would partially agree. But I am putting him here for 2 reasons. 1...his death charges. That's right, he is the only ingame infected other than witch that can insta-kill players. If you set it up right, you can actually kill all survivors in a single charge, dealing 1200 damage overall. He can change the game in just one move, and that is why i love him. 2nd of all, he is just fun to play as! Even if you die, it doesn't matter because as long as you carry the player over a long distance, over an edge, or crash into another player...You will still feel satisfied.
Now i'm asking you, how do you rank the special infected?
