Rocket says they're "infected" not "zombies" - end of argument

31 posts in this topic

Rocket uses the word "infected" out of the scientific view on the matter and because he is following the concept and the background story of the mod. Zombie is a more colloquial form and more widely used and is not forbidden. It's just what he personally prefers :)

Hello there

If, IF, this were real and I saw chaps wandering around the way the infected do, I would nickname them Zombies

One could assume that in the DAYZ universe this may be the slang that became generally attributed to them before The Fall.

On the other hand it doesn't really matter what they are called as the infected/zombies/mad ballroom dancers still try to kill you.

I was reading posts, and got a little dumbfounded that a number of people felt it necessary to make this distinction, with the reasoning given in the title. Mostly it was as an argument against slow zombies, as in, "no, Rocket said that they're infected, not zombies, so they don't need to be slow."

I have said this before...Rocket may say that they aren't "zombies" but if it walks like a duck, looks like a duck, farts like a duck and quacks like a duck...it's a duck...not a chicken. These "infected" behave and look, in every way shape and form to a "zombie". They are zombies.

Simple question,

If they aren't zombies, then why is it called DayZ?

If they are just infected, then it should be called DayI, or iDay, or SeriouslyBadColdDay, or DayNotZ, or basically anything other than "Z".

Maybe DayZ stands for Day Zero. Like it says when you freshly spawn.

It's quite obvious he got the infected idea from 28 Days later. It's a case of major rabies.... Not dead returning to life.

Yeah, well that argument just got shot down in flaming wreckage, didn't it. Still don't see the need to distinguish, however ... I believe there was a meal of justified payout to be dished. Can't server hop my way out of this one, now, can I.

Because they're infected with a zombie virus. Wasn't that obvious?

Here is someone with logic and understanding of the basics of infected.

Two steps:

1. Find a body of an "infected"

2. Open gear menu and It says "Zombie" at the top left corner. (Or at least did in previous versions.)

End of discussion? Probably not... this is the interweb.

      Every 2nd time I try and press the record button with Bandicam the fucking game crashes.  Good thing I'm smart enough to press record while I'm safe, But it took a death to realize.  This is utter crap :l   anyone else have this problem? 1/2 the time I'm playing I'm too scared to hit record button  in the middle of battle because I'm too scared it'll crash, Which is bogus..

      I know I know its alpha. But this is a first for me... I was just checking buildings and things mainly going to the top of building cause I really wanted a mosin and all of a sudden out of nowhere while inside a building I just died... Completely dead.  Never got hurt at all or anything dont know wtf...
       
      10 min after having shootout with bandit..
       
      Wouldnt shoot untill he shot at me first.. then proceeded to killl him.. All great everything is fine fully geared looking for mosin to just put in hands.. So I see some loot so I go up to it hit tab and die.
       
      When I hit esc I can see that im OUTSIDE dead laying in the grass.. WTF? Very confusing and very sad. This happened in cherno and I will not be going to cherno anytime soon I assure you. That place is a death trap... Zombies see you while your inside a building crouched.. from 100 meters away? Dying for no reason whatsoever.. Plus its laggy as all hell..
       
      Well anyways back to a few more days of looting to be back where I was... We are talking full cammo, ammo box full of ammo. Four 60 rnd mags, all the food you could imagine with all the attachments you know. I dont mind doing it its fun but I like to at least enjoy me gear b4 I lose it for no reason whatsoever.
       
      Point being at no fault of my own I just died out of nowhere really sucks please fix. Dont give me "its just alpha" shit idgaf.
