Description[edit | edit source]
Blood Plague disease has made Trumbull Valley as its epicenter, most districts infested by Plague Hearts, and its abundance pushed the latter to mutate further into Plague Walls - the next step of evolution.
The US Army's special detached team were the first to assess one of the abomination. Their band of researchers and soldiers were almost wiped out after their attempt to destroy one on the Crashed Plane.
They are largely different from Plague Hearts - with a Plague Bloater as its heart protected by an impenetrable shell and massive collection of muscle and tissues, the ground where the heart lies is filled with condensed bloody solution and gas of Blood Plague. It will grow by infesting any structures, turning buildings into abandoned sites. It can command every plague zombie for protection, whilst its only weakness is a chemical explosives created from the poison glands of a Plague Bloater.
Distribution and Behavior[edit | edit source]
Plague Walls act as a detached type of Plague Heart, both have the same behavior when attacked. Having a Plague Wall however had its surroundings turn red, but it is not guarded by Plague Zombies when entering its premises. Just like the hearts, Plague Walls are able to summon even the Plague Freaks.
Plague Walls have a total of 3 Health Bars, adding the difficulty for a loner survivor to dispose, while the only explosive effective are Plague Busters which temporarily makes it vulnerable from any form of attacks except incendiaries.
Plague Walls on Trumbull Valley are found in only two districts, the one on the Crashed Plane and 4 others in the Marshall.
Crashed Plane[edit | edit source]
The Plague Wall on this site sits on the central parts of the plane's cabin. The plane itself sits on the plain farmlands beside a military outpost.
Marshall[edit | edit source]
Unlike the Crashed Plane, the Marshall's 4 Plague Walls have turned the area into a massive Plague Blood fortress. The walls were also called the Alpha Zone (the outermost), Beta Zone, then Gamma Zone, and lastly the Zeta Zone - the innermost Plague Wall. Captain Logan categorized this behavior as "The Gauntlet" as if the Plague Walls are guarding some valuable information inside Zeta Zone's infested structure.
Strategies[edit | edit source]
Plague Walls are invulnerable against any forms of attack unless it's protective shell is weakened by Plague Busters. After that, it will surely receive damage. Although the most preferred weapon to use are assault shotguns as it provides better crowd control from zed hordes. Players must also include land mines and incendiary grenades for additional defense. Grenades are good option but these explosives are prone to friendly fires. They must also enlist a follower so they may act as decoys.
