L4D Contamination 1Staring through the glass window, Edward examined the specimen. It was a creature that was about the size of a full grown human, and looked like one too. But it wasn't. Edward watched as the creature jumped from tree branch to tree branch. It made loud howls as it jumped. This was a Hunter. Three people stood behind Edward, taking notes on the creature."This Hunter used to be a man. Aged around his early twenties, he was infected by a dog." Edward said to the three young people. "Examinations showed that the body we found near him in an apartment was that of his sister. This is proof that the infection won't hold back on anyone!" Edward looked over to the group. They were all busy taking notes."How long did it take for him to become infected?" One of the students asked. Edward looked at her briefly."We've estimated that for a Hunter transformation, it takes only a few hours to change. We've concluded that this Hunter was holding out with his sister before infection, and o
Smoker StudyContamino toxicum, more commonly known as the "Smoker," is a variant of the ruina morbus disease. Once the disease has entered the body of the victim, it'll start to alter the body to suit other purposes. In the Smoker's case, the disease alters the digestive system the most.The ruina morbus cells send signals from the brain towards the mouth, telling the tongue to produce more cells than needed. The brain also tells the tongue to starts growing muscles and nerves, and after two weeks of production, the "tongue" is now a fully functional limb. The "tongue" is capable of stretching to three times its length, and constricting humans. This is the primary attacking method of the Smoker.The process of producing the "tongue" also produced a byproduct, an unknown gaseous substance. The ruina morbus disease makes the host's body create large tumors over the left half of the body. These tumors are filled with the gas, which is toxic to humans who aren't infected with the ruina morbus disease.
