[edit] Appearance and Abilty

There a many skins of the Zombie enemy, for example, there's a type with a 'beer straw hat' and a regular run of the mill worker type, they all have the same attacks which are generally to rush your position and bite you with little regard to their own health. They also spew a long range acid that can down you or deplete your shield in one go.

[edit] Strategy

Zombies are not very weak at first glance, although susceptible to every form of damage except corrosion they can sponge direct body shots very easily before going down. This can lead to you easily being swamped by a multitude of Zombies and dying very fast. The main rick is to shoot them in the head, this deals critical damage almost 4 times as much as regular damage. Another wise thing to do is use elemental weapons that can set them on fire, or more preferably; using Liliths phoenix ability, use her to run around a group of zombies (stunning them if you want) after killing one normally, this will set them all alight and dispatch of them very easily. It is also smart not to stay in one spot as they sometimes stop to deal deadly acid damage from a distance. And if you can shoot the barrel on the back of a Suicide Zombie and a Tankenstein it will sun Tank or kill him him the Suicide Zombie will just die.

[edit] Zombie Types

Please note that any critical damage hit that kills a zombie will result in dropping a brain except for the Tankenstein and the Loot Goon.
