Description

I think it would be a cool option to allow players, when killed to turn into a zombie they control rather than respawn as a new player right away.

This would give them a (small) chance to deal with that Pkiller who just shot them in the back ;)

You don't need one.. certainly not for this fantastic idea!

This would imply that everyone has the infection and turns into one after death?

I actually like this idea, maybe with a minute or two before you re-animate. It would certainly add a new aspect to the game and you'd never know if that was a stupid AI zombie coming at you or a player that might be as smart as you. This might also balance some of the PVP in this game. Who's going to take a chance killing someone else if they literally might come back from the grave to exact their revenge? Don't let PC zombies use fire arms or any other gear, give them night vision of sorts to compensate for not being able to use flares, NVGs, etc. Have whatever your current PTT button only make angry zombie sounds that might also draw a few more AI zombies into the hunt. I would want it to be an option when you are dead. Respawn on the coast again somewhere or 20 seconds to decide if you want to be a zombie for awhile. Not a "save" state!

The way the virus is in our backstory (Not released) meaning this situation would be impossible.
