Vampirism (EMS)

This mutation forces survivors to kill or die.
Your health decays over time and the only way to keep it up is to kill zombies.

The main aim for this mutation was to keep the core gameplay of L4D2 but mix it up by changing one of the most important items in the game. Health kits are gone. The infected are not only the things trying to kill you, but also the things keeping you alive.

You need your team in order to survive, but you need the kills more. How will you play?
-Several stability improvements
-Tanks and witches now revive incapacitated survivors
-Temporary health now decays much faster when player has no health.

UPDATE 09/04/2013
-Added a help page
-Nerfed witch on Hard Rain, now only the survivor who kills witch gets health (exclusive to Hard Rain)
-More difficult (common infected give off half the health they did before!) Good luck!

UPDATE 09/03/2013
-Uploaded Vampirism out of Beta to Base Left 4 Dead 2 game
-Added lifesteal (shoot fellow survivors to steal their health)
-Set default revive health to 75 instead of 25 buffer health

UPDATE 02/20/2013
-Fixed vampirism not working on L4D2 survivors


UPDATE 02/19/2013
-Better table management in script
-HealthDecay now kicks in faster after killing a zombie
-Fixed glitch where mutation would not start when Bot Survivor left safe area first.
-Changed pipebombs replacing health kits to pain pills replacing health kits.
-Fixed difficulty glitch when playing as Left 4 Dead 1 survivors
-Opened up all coop campaigns
-No longer needs dependencies


Pipebombs become invaluable healing tools.

Current Healing Amount:
Common = 1HP
Special = 25HP
Witch = 50HP to all survivors
Tank = 100HP to all survivors
Headshots = x2 HP GAIN

Thanks for playing, Let me know what you think! :)

@leif_krummenacher temporary health now decays much faster when the player has no health.

@leif_krummenacher how so? How much faster? Making updates to this in the next few days.

very fun mutation, though it would be neat if you could make people bleed out faster when they have temperary health. Still great job The Fish!

i'm pretty sure this is a timesplitters refrance. you can get a similar gamemode on it and it is called vampire.

@Burak, there's no health kits and your health decays. The only way to build health back up is to kill zombies. Same as Vampires draining people of blood.

i dont get it, it sound great but what's this about with vampirism?
