Powers and Abilities

They’re slow and clumsy, the Doom marine can drop them with two pistol shots, their carbine is anaemic. They’re the Doom zombies.

Unfortunately, there are billions of them. Well, millions, at least. And heh, it’s not that common for zombies to pack.

History

These zombies (or, more precisely, “former humans”) are mutated, undead Earth soldiers. They now eat human flesh and serving the powers of Hell. Don’t mock them, for when Hell comes you’ll end up as one.

Come on, they’re zombies. However they were zombying before zombies were cool. So perhaps they are hipster zombies.
