The Lurker is a special type of zombie that is not like the run of the mill zombies you will see throughout a level. This special zombie wants to jump on you and pin you to the ground. If you are away from the group this can be especially dangerous as you will need your teammate to take out the zombie. Try to kill Lurkers before they pin any of your team to the ground.

Bull – Special Zombie

If the Bull charge connects, it will smash the person into the ground repeatedly. Since the Bull is armored, it takes multiple people to take it down. Work together with your team!
