All Types Of Back 4 Blood Ridden Zombie Types

There are 5 types of zombies. These types are:

  • Stinger
  • Snitcher
  • Tallboy
  • Reeker
  • Ogre


The Stinger is a 4 handed monster that stays behind in the shadows. It sneakily attacks from the back. The main attack is a ball of phlegm that it will shoot at you. This will pin you to the ground and will require you to get the help of a teammate to free you. So, whenever you hear a coughing sound around you, just keep your head on a swivel.

One of the worst types of zombies in the game. This zombie will not deal any physical damage. However, it does something much worse. It will let out a pretty shrill screeching sound that will attract all nearby zombies to your location. This makes it pretty important to take out the Snitchers pretty early whenever you come across them. Saves a lot of hassle when they are out of the picture early on.

Tallboy types of Zombie in Back 4 Blood

The Tallboy, like its name, is pretty damn tall. It towers above all the characters and deals large amounts of damage. This zombie is a menace in combat situations, mainly because of the club-like formation on its arm. It will also get sudden boosts of energy where it just charges at you. The only way to bring it down is by aiming for the bright red mass on his shoulders. Keep your aim on this area and you will be able to bring it down.

The Reeker is just huge. It is what the British would call an absolute unit. This is one of the zombies that makes a return from the Left 4 Dead series, albeit with a different name this time around. So, old fans of the franchise already know how to defeat this monster. You will need to spend quite a lot of ammo in your pursuit to destroy and bring down this monster in the game. However, once you do kill it, there will be a large gross explosion that signifies the destruction of your disgruntled foe.

The Ogre

The Ogre is one of the first bosses that you will face in the game. This is definitely one of the worst-looking Zombie types in Back 4 Blood. It is also pretty hard to defeat as you might have guessed by now. This monster will keep chasing you around. Don’t let its size fool you as it has something up its sleeve. Quite literally, as it will shoot balls of goop and mucous in your general direction. It also has pretty good health stats. This means that you will have to keep grinding out damage and constantly shooting at the Ogre.

The best way to beat the Ogre is to simply run away from it and use ranged attacks to bring it down. This will also give you time to react to its shot put throw. Other than that you are safe at a distance.

This is everything that you will need to know about all the Zombie types in Back 4 Blood. While you are here you can also have a look at Back 4 Blood Swarm Mode.
