The Boomer is a fat, slow, and disgusting special infected who can vomit puke that attracts other infected. Upon death Boomers explode covering anyone close to it in puke which attracts other infected. It is best to kill Boomers from a distance and shove them out of the way when close.
The Hunter is a special infected that can pounce onto survivors and incapacitate them, the biggest lesson to learn from the hunter is to stay close to your team for them to save you. Hunters can be shoved off and easily killed with basic weaponry. Deadly when you’re alone but a minor annoyance when with other survivors.
Smokers have nicotine addictions which cause them to cough violently and grow a massive tongue which they use to ensnare you. Smokers strangle and drag survivors with their long tongues and explode into smoke upon death which blinds your vision. A survivor can be freed from a Smoker’s grasp by shoving them off or killing the Smoker. Just like the Hunter the Smoker’s lesson is for your team to stick together or you will die.
The Charger is a special infected who beat his meat so much that he now uses his arm as a battering ram. The Charger is a strong and persistent infected who has a large amount of health. When hit by a charge a survivor is grabbed then smashed into the ground repeatedly. A way to dodge the Charger is to listen for his animal-like screams when he charges. The lesson from the charger is to not stick too close together.
The Jockey is a pint-sized infected that can jump on a survivor’s back and ride them. Jockey’s can be easily found by their constant laughs and other noises. A Jockey can be removed from a survivor by being shoved off or killed by basic weaponry. Jockeys are very annoying to come across.
The Spitter is an infected that can spit acid that slowly damages survivors over time. Upon death a puddle of acid spills onto the ground creating a major obstacle in a doorway or hallway. Spitters can also destroy gascans in Scavenge Mode which is very bad for the survivors. Avoid the Spitter’s acid puddles at all costs or you risk melting you feet.
SHOOT ALL YOUR BULLETS INTO IT AND RUN LIKE A ♥♥♥♥♥♥♥ MADMAN
The Witch is an annoying roadblock to come across. She is neutral until provoked then she will murder everyone. She incapacitates survivors with a single hit and on higher difficulties is an instant kill. Best strategy is to avoid her or unload all your ammunition onto her at once to hopefully kill her.
I hope this guide helped 🙂
