SummaryA stronger, faster, less annoying version of the licker that pulls the targets it attacks toward itself. It spawns during various events in varying-sized groups. Impalers may be very deadly when they attack with other zombies near them.
Engagement & Tactics
The impaler is relatively easy to kill, but can support other zombies by pulling its targets closer to them. Multiple impalers supporting other zombies(especially tier-1 zombies) can be lethal if they are not killed immediately. Three impalers attacking the same target can easily pull lone soldiers to their dooms. While their pulling attacks may not be as diabolical as being licked, they are still a serious hazard for soldiers that are near them. The Squad Designated Marksman should be on a lookout for impalers to pick off before they get close to the squad and become a threat.
