I don't like to play as that small hunchback guy who's constantly laughing. What was his name again... ah yes, the Joker.

He's also Batman's nemesis over the weekends.

Jockey.....worst special infected......Ever!!!

Jockey - Only because after too many hours of playing l4d2, my hand curls up around the mouse and goes into a permenant state of cramp resembling what I can only describe as "Jockey hand syndrome" when I detach my hand from the mouse. Not sure if any of you have seen evil dead 2 when bruce campbells hand changed into some mutated zombie hand (yeah, you don't need me to paint the rest of this scenario), not a pretty picture I have to say. :P

Jokery aside. There are some days when jockey's always grab me to the point when I hear one I just say to myself "go for it, just pounce on me" waving a white flag and let it do it's thing and drag me to some corner of the map.

Like everyone else, i'd have to say the jockey.

You just never feel like you're doing much with a jockey except delay the team by making them have to backtrack a few seconds.
Even though he's still useful, I just find him frusterating to fight against and to play as. He's more of a nusiance than a symbol of imminent death, esspecially since he's also the only special that has to fight with the victim for control

-Also, zombies seem to ignore jockeyed players and just let them past by.
- Even though he was designed for it, the jockey sucks at keeping survivors trapped in acid, mainly because the pinning infected do a better job at keeping them still once they're in the pool.
- The jockey is the only infected i know that can be easily kited accidentally. It can barely outrun anyone who isn't limping without leaping to catch up, so you can actually easily run and gun them to death if there's a distance between you.
- The jockey has one of the longest cooldown timers on his abilities after he's been shoved off or incapitated a player.
- Riding a person off a ledge doesn't hurt them at all. The jockey can't deathcharge or pull off instakills, and also a lot of buildings have 1 foot tall walls that he can't jump over.
- He feels too situational, he depends a lot on his enviorment to both hide and ambush, but in a wide open area he's easily shot down, esspecially once he's on a person.

Ever notice the Jockey does this one jump thing to get on the survivors & I never can pull this move off or anyone else I have seen play as the jockey. I think in game there is specific things they didn't add to the SI controls in VS.

Jockey. Case closed. It's essentially a Hunter on wheels, right? Here's the thing: the Hunter is useful!

And awesome to play around with. I laugh like a idiot when I'm jumping all over the place, finally pouncing on a Survivor.

Jockey, no matter how many bullets I shoot at it, it always manages to stay alive and violate me :(. And I get♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥when on expert campaigns a jockey manages to ♥♥♥♥♥ slap 2-3 people to either death or last stand and make us restart the level.

Worst = jockey
- does the least damage of all pinning infected
- can not kill survivors like other pinning infected
- survivors can resist his movements
- longest cooldown ingame (along with boomer)
- unlike smokers who stay alive after "hanging" a survivor, or chargers who insta-kill survivors after "hanging" them, the jockey simply incapps them and kills himself aswell
- loudest of all the infected
- hardest to lay an attack with

10/14 posts here state that jockey is the worst
