A Fat Zombie is a Zombie that is obese, but behaves like most other zombies.
Fat Zombies come in three forms:
- Faceless, open abdomen, unarmed
- Faceless, open abdomen, with wrench
A Fat Zombie, like a regular zombie, moves towards the player until he is close enough to attack. However, he has more health and inflicts more damage than regular zombies. A Fat Zombie that is unarmed has two possible modes: walking and running. In walking mode, he is slower than a regular zombie. In running mode, he has his arms lifted in the air and is faster than a regular zombie. Because speed is the only technical difference between the two modes, he is more dangerous in running mode. A Fat Zombie with a wrench is not capable of running, but he has farther reach than the other two variations. In the Doom 3 Expansion, these Zombies are fairly common with the fast open green shirt zombies in the game.
