Let's discuss L4D2 Spec. Infected!
What's your favorite or least favorite? Which one would scare you least or most? Which of the 7 made you freak out number of times? Or, you know, just discus them in general. :) (you don't need to choose a favorite if you don't have any, or don't want to)

For me, its hard to pick a favorite, as they all are pain in the necks, but I kinda like witch, out of sympathy of her crying state and she's the only one you can bypass without being attacked, my least favorite is Jockey, I mean, I just get annoyed at this maniacally laughing dude. Although I fear none, closest would be hunter, because out of nowhere I get pounced. Least scary is Boomer. Hunter has freaked me out number of times. Generally speaking, they are pretty well done, yet really annoying.

Left 4 Dead 2 Specials are a joke. The Specials, especially the Witch and Tank, in Left 4 Dead scared me. Now the Tank's a tomato and I can Crown the Witch. The only thing that really surprises me these days is a good ninja Charger or Hunter. Nothing scares me.

Least Jockey.

For me the Charger is probably the most anoying. especialy when youre being mobed by a bunch of zombies and he comes out of nowhere and drags you a million miles away from everyone else.

or worse, you see him but can't fight off the horde to move, and you just watch him come closer and closer to you. lol.

Out alone the smoker is the worst, good luck fighting him off. With others, probably the jockey, it's so hard to deadstop him regularly, ti seems mostly luck.

While the horde may be dangerous because it keeps your team busy, I think it's somewhat better to be "charged" into a wall instead of having a charger just stand next to you and hit you a couple of times. Your teammates can more easily save you from that when he's grabbed you.

Honestly all special infected can be annoying. Sometimes when you wait for a smoker to come up behind you, let's say in a doorway of a building you just entered, he sidesteps into the opening and instantly grabs you. Hunters sometimes bug out a little when you try shoving them around and manage to swipe you. Jockeys jump insane distances and even over/through teammates to get on your back and are also nasty swipers. Another one of those ♥♥♥♥♥♥♥s is the spitter.

Basically, IMO, I don't mind any of the specials. But it's those sneaky and unrealistic quick/swipe attacks they do that bother me. For example if you're not quick enough to kill a charger with your melee weapon after he does his special attack, he'll actually hit you with his back turned to you. Watafak. That's why I hate it when instead of charging at me (so I can dodge or let my teammates take care of him) he strafes around and gets close to me instead.

Right now I would say I hate the charger the most. Witches can still be avoided and tanks can be kited. Jockeys can be stopped and killed with smart use of the environment (track him by his noise and use corners/doors, pre-emptive shove and then slash him up!) but chargers take more damage and can't be shoved. Blegh.
