The Crawler Zombie is a type of Zombie. It is considerably slower than the average zombie as it does not walk or run and instead drags itself along the ground.
This may be used to player's advantages as it is one of the only zombies that does not gain a speed advantage when night falls. On the other hand, it is also more difficult to detect, because it can attack you below while you're repelling one zombie horde, with the added benefit of being harder to spot in a darker light ambience. Multiple Crawler Zombies at a door can crawl through the top space of a door.
If this zombie's corpse is looted you might find Scrap Brass items, Scrap Lead items, Wood Planks, Paper, Large Bones, Glass Jars, Oil, Books, Bullet Casings, Rotting Flesh, Old Sham Sandwiches, Cloth, Glass Panes &/or Gun Powder.
A single headshot with a durable pistol will kill a Crawler Zombie, although it's best to take him down with a meele weapon, since it's not too dangerous to get close to him and it's easier to take him down that way.
- There's a glitch when killing these types of zombies since they were added that hasn't been fixed yet. Its body stretches when killed and can only be looted by pressing "E" on his head.
