Well you already know what to bring, who to bring and how things might start so now you're probably wondering what you can expect when you dive into this thing called the survival game........and what kind of zombies will populate the now infested world, well movies have taught me that there are many types of possibilities, some better than others....and here they are;
The No-brainers; This is probably the type of zombie that you WANT to populate your zombie apocalypse. why, you might ask but the answer is simple, these types of zombies are stupid, they are slow, they are stiff plus they mumble brains wherever so it's pretty easy to spot one of these suckers. These types of zombies would be more common to a voodoo type of outbreak.....plus they might break into dance unexpectedly.
The Sprinters These are exactly the opposite to the no-brainer meaning that these suckers are VERY fast, combined with the fact that they don't need to breathe, meaning no fatigue, they are the most dangerous. These zombies are relentless, they will follow you until you shoot them dead or take off their head so do that as quickly as you can, always making sure to remain safe from infection. These type of zombie are the most commonly known since they are easily the most depicted in the media right now.
The freaks; Okay this one is, in my thoughts, up for debate but one can't help but think that way since most people think mutation means some sort of superpower or something. If the zombie apocalypse IS caused by some sort of virus then I think it's more than possible that there are some mutations depending on the subject....maybe not to the range of L4D or RE but definitely something might occur though that might not mean an advantage to the zombies so I don't know....have to wait for that to happen.
Well that's the basic list I made....maybe some other sort of type eluded me but it doesn't matter because I'm going to tell you MY hypothesis into what a typical zombie will be like;
I believe that the most probable zombie will be a mixture of all of them basically. I believe that a body contaminated by the zombie virus has to be functional to become a zombie, meaning that the person has to be alive when infected and the VIRUS has to kill them, not being gnawed on by zombies. I think of it this way, the virus needs a live body to infect since it needs to spread and infect other cells before it can take over and it can't do that if the body is dead, and even if it did it would be inconsequential since an eaten body would not be useful at all. Now let's say that the virus found a healthy(meaning not mangled or eaten in half) body that it has turned into a zombie, I believe that that zombie will be a sprinter. This zombie will be a sprinter, killing and infecting others as the body slowly decays since the virus will probably just reanimate the brain as the whole body dies, slowly but surely it would begin to turn into a no-brainer....minus the mumbling part and then finally, the body has become so stiff that the zombie can't move it. Also there'd be a sprinkling of freaks here and there....just like high school, but ultimately I think the zombie apocalypse will just be a fight for time until nature kills most, if not all, the zombies.
Well I hope these helps you to better understand zombies yet when the zombie apocalypse happens I urge to take investigation into your own hands, also; here's the trailer for the movie "28 Days Later" which I enjoyed...though the people aren't actually zombies;
WATCH OUT FOR ZOMBIES!
