The Common Infected are the most common enemy seen in Zombies. Their existance may be credited to a bioweapon that Dr. Erik Köhlerschmidt and another, unknown scientist helped to create. Not much is known yet about how they came to be as it is only hinted at that Doctor Köhlerschmidt had any involvement.
Extent of MutationsEdit
No abnormal mutations appear to have occoured to most Common Infected; rather, they tend to retain their normal, human appearence. The only difference seems to be blood-stained clothing, glazed-over eyes, rotting flesh, some self-induced scratching/scaring. With the infection, they appear to have an increased sense of smell, hearing, eyesight and have developed improved night-vision. In addition to this, they have a terrifying preference for human flesh.
