Why would I want to remove something that makes perfect sense?

Considering how many times characters in the game actually refer to the infected as "dead" & not infected....it makes perfect sense.

It's been said before. Zombies have a part of their brain working still, whether classified as dead or not. Brain needs oxygen to function. No oxygen = no brain function = brain dead = no more zombie.

This is a personal choice over what fictional standpoint the player wants to believe, in any case I can't see it making that big of an impact to warrant the trouble of installing this mod, but whatever.

Awesome, if you could somehow make it so the Infected zombies can still drown, that'd be awesome.

If we're following the movies, undead are dead, therefore they can't drown, whereas the infected are technically still alive/human. (To anyone who cares )

Brain needs blood to bring oxygen. Blood needs a heart to be pumping. Blood need a lung to receive oxygen. Everything needs nerves to function.

If we had a bunch of zombie movies saying "shoot em in the lungs, or the heart, or a major artery, or the brain, or the trachea, or the diaphragm, or the spinal column!!" it would ruin the whole fun of zombies.

The dead can't drown. They don't need oxygen. Am I the only zombie fan here?

They don't require anything.

Though, I like it in this game, gives a tacitcal advantage, though it doesn't make sense.

So no, zombies can't drown.

Romero himself directed a movie in which the zombies survived walking underwater.... albeit a bad movie... he is the grand-daddy.

That being said, I won't DL this, as "unrealistic" as zombies being poisoned or drowned is; it is a fun in-game feature.

Undead = Magical, dead, cursed, damned, back from hell.
Infected = Still alive, brain gone haywire, physical strength due to mutation, higher brain functions disabled due to virus/bacteria/whatever.

One can walk without a head, guess which one?
