Zombies can attack in different ways in order to infect or kill a person and turn them into another zombie. In this post I will talk about the different attacks.
Biting could be classified as the most dangerous Zombie attack there is. Unlucky for us this is also the most common attack a Zombie does. Bites are feared most, because they are the main source of infecting other people. The Solanum virus is transmitted by saliva and blood. A person will almost always be infected when bitten. The only cure to a bite currently known is cutting off the part of the body where they bite was within a few seconds. So act quickly!
This is the secondary attack of a zombie. The chance of infection is smaller, because there is no contact between your blood and blood or saliva of a zombie. However, if a zombie does have zombie blood under its nails you can be infected, and wounds caused by clawing can be prone to infection.
Faster zombies might be able to run a little bit, but will not be able to control themselves well and ram into you. Then when they have rammed you they will start to incapacitate you. When a zombie rams you, your chances of survival are slim. However, The chance that a Zombie actually rams you is very small. This is because 99,9% of the zombies will not be able to run, because of muscle decay. The other 0,1% will only be able to ‘run’, because it might tumble over, but is able to place it’s feed under itself. This will make them stumble faster or ‘run’.
Recently killed zombies, who’s flesh is still fresh, have better control over their bodies. This will give the Zombie the ability to attack at a quicker rate than more decayed zombies. It is hard to get a pouncing zombie off of you, because the pain it causes is can disable your muscle functions. Your best chance of survival if you get caught by one of these is with help of a fellow survivor. This kind of zombie is common in the early stages of the Zombie apocalypse, but will disappear within a few weeks, because the muscles will decay quickly after death.
If a body builder, wrestler or boxer will turn into a zombie, it may try to punch you as it is in their instinct to fight with their hands. These attacks can be hard, however are not likely to infect you.
If a zombie is has been in water for a longer time, or has eaten loads of flesh it may bloat up due to water or decomposing gases building up. The belly will be swollen and a small hit can cause the zombie to explode. This is not dangerous from a distance. If you are close the blow will not kill you either, unless there is fire it could ignite. Also the blood that is flying around can be dangerous, because it could come in contact with your blood and thus infect you. This kind of zombie however will be very slow.
Vomiting zombies are not very dangerous unless they are on top of you. The vomit can be infectious. However this is unlikely since vomiting is a reflex caused by a feeling, and since all nerves of zombies are not working this will not occur very often.
This is a psychological attack made by the zombies. The continuous moans can cause an extreme drop of morale to your group. Zombies do not sleep so they will keep moaning without pause. This will cause other zombies to join them in a fight and the constant reminder will drive you insane. Take appropriate measures to get rid of these sounds.
