Grammar?[edit]

What do you mean with "Until Today"? --GeneticArmor 13:12, 23 June 2009 (UTC)

I meant that, until now they (specimens) have only been known as that. Meaning that they are only known as that, nothing more, nothing less. --Takua 09:46, 24 June 2009 (UTC)
Ok ^^ --GeneticArmor 10:00, 24 June 2009 (UTC)

Gender?[edit]

We started out the wiki by calling every specimen an "it", excluding the Patriarch of course. But it's kind of easy to tell whether a Fleshpound or a Bloat is male. Crawlers should still be called an "it" in my opinion cause you can't really tell its gender. What does everyone think about the topic? --Takua 09:16, 11 January 2010 (UTC)

Wave Layout[edit]

I have no idea how to mess around with the charts, so I'll just list the order which I came across:
Short Game:

  • Wave 2: Crawlers, Stalkers, Husks
  • Wave 3: Scrakes

Medium Game:

  • Wave 2: Crawlers, Stalkers
  • Wave 3: Husks, Siren
  • Wave 4:
  • Wave 5: Fleshpounds

Didn't encounter any Scrakes, which is weird. Rbbbs

Bloat's instant kill?[edit]

Under special attacks for the Bloat in HOE it just says instant kill. Surely if we know how much damage a patriarch rocket does we can figure out a bloat attack. If you have armor or are a beserker or medic it is not an instant kill. I'm not sure how one finds out these things but if someone can show me where to look or if I have to test it myself I'll do it.

It's not an instant kill even if you're unarmoured and not a Berserker or Medic. You can try searching the SDK; Balthazar uploaded some of the script files to here. —Weldindisdowa T/C 17:01, 13 December 2011 (UTC)

Total/Head Health Relationship[edit]

I'm not entirely sure how to word this the best, but as you would know from playing or from reading here, head health is always, with the exception of the Patriarch, less than the total health. How do they correspond with each other? These numbers are obviously made up for simplicity's sake, but say a specimen had 100 head health, and 300 total health, and I did 50 head damage, would the total health decrease by only 50, or would it go down proportionally by 50% to 150? I apologize if I did not word this as well as I should have. — Karebu 11:08, 26 July 2012 (UTC)

This question seems more ridiculous every time I think about it. I'm about 99% sure it goes down proportionally, but some confirmation would be appreciated. — Karebu 13:51, 1 August 2012 (UTC)
The attack would do 50 body damage, not 150. If the headshot multiplier was 110%, it would do 55 to both head and body. Only when the head is decapitated do you get anything like what you are talking about, and that is simply a one-time damage increment (based on damage of the final headshot) to the body (plus guaranteed death after four seconds for most zeds, up to six seconds for FPs) — anon 7:33, 15 November 2012 (UTC)
