Elite Infected
----------------------------------------------
- Will start appearing at level 15
- These are special infected that will spawn at random during missions
- They will appear in two forms, Rare and Unique
- Rares are more common and have increased health, damage and resistances
- Uniques are deadly. They have extremely high damage, health and resistances, some are impervious to certain damage types
- Depending on the type of infected (Riot, Fat, Military etc) they will have varying resistances to damage


Elite Infected Rewards
----------------------------------------------
- Killing an elite will reward you with an Elite Box
- Elite Boxes will contain items based on the level of the Elite killed
- Elite Boxes will be the only way to collect "Infamous Trophies" a new crafting component


Regular Infected Changes
----------------------------------------------
- Special infected types will have some small resistances now
- Riot, Police and Military infected are now slightly resistant to ballistic damage
- Fat and Bruiser zombies are now slightly resistant to melee damage


Infamous Items
----------------------------------------------
- 4 New items to craft
- All of these are level 40+
- These items also require Infamous Trophies in order to craft them


Changes
----------------------------------------------
- Manual reloading now has a short delay before the reload starts
- Survivors assigned to the Island Raid no longer sustain injuries from PvP defense


Fixes
----------------------------------------------
- Added fix for Chrome scrolling bug where using the scroll wheel was causing clicks

So killing an elite infected will cause a item drop?  Am I reading that right?

Yeah, they're kind of mean, so we figured we would want to reward you just for killing them. I've had to leave a few missions early due to Unique Elites, they're pretty rough.

Fair enough.   Entirely new loot mechanic then -- even more awesome.

 

Assume they can't appear in compound attacks then?

They're disabled for compound attacks, yeah.

Yes! Now manuals wont be the stroll in the park theyve always been!

Liking the slightly different format of this preview card, wonder what up with that symbol on the images though

a few questions

 

 

1.The new Infamous stuff seems interesting but i want to know stats for at least the Warbringer since how i plan on replacing all my current melee weapons with blue swords

2. You say the the unique elite infected are deadly but is that for all levels?, like if i sent some level 50+ plus guys with high melee resist armors and uni weapons to Union Bridge would they get owned if i`m not paying attention?

3. Will these be apart of bounties? (speaking of which will the improved bounty rewards be apart of this update?)

4. Will all of the items in the elite boxes be decent?( ie no frigging kits)

5. And of course when will this update take place?

Infamous Items

----------------------------------------------

- These items also require Infamous Trophies in order to craft them

 

Just to confirm, we will need: components, notes, and trophies, right?

Also, will the fuel cost be more expensive than normal?

My guess is HERC cameras. (First image also states that it is a photo from HERC files)

Island?

 

Still debating that one. Probably not initially while we figure out the balance.

Will there be some sort of alert for when a rare/unique infected spawns so we can prepare? I mean, if they're deadly to the point where even the devs have trouble with missions, then we kinda need a heads-up for when they appear, like for rushes. I get they have weapons obviously, but it would be hard to distinguish the tough dangerous Elites in a group of runners or normal infected.

 

Off to the side, the lag and lag spikes have been increasing for the past few days, with today especially.

I like this idea.  Kinda like when you get a rush and the border goes red.  Perhaps for rare/unique infected it could go the rare/unique colors respectively.

 

Which brings me to my next question....

 

Can you get a elite and a zed rush at the same time?
