I dont know if this has been suggested before…
I was just running in chernarus to a better loot location and decided to take a shortcut through the woods. The sun was slowly setting and fog started to appear as i entered the forest. Got kinda creepy being alone in the forest and started to get a little paranoid since my vision was not that good anymore. Was constantly watching whats around me ( I was in quite a populated area ). As it got even more darker an idea occurred to me. Wouldnt it be horrifying if creepy fast zombie with with some sort of screeching sound would run at you? Maybe have its eyes glowing aswel or something like that.
These creepy zombies i think also should appear randomly at times when its dark, foggy or both in heaviy forest areas. Also they would be faster then humans and maybe not engage at you on sight some sort of stalking to them aswel. Like you might spot them but you have time to run away fast as they slowly try to stalk you and engage when they are close to you if you dont notice them. Maybe you spot them and they dont engage every time just to strike fear into you and just remind you it is out there..something like that. ISNT THAT A SCARY THING TO HAVE IN DAYZ?? Also this ” zombe monster ” would keep players out of the forest a little more so the camps people build and make wont be so easily raided. also would kinda force people to work more in groups as that zombie can easily kill you when you are alone.
Thanks for the read hope you like my idea.
