If we have so much story lore, why don't we have clearer lore (at least from a meta perspective) about the nature of the infected?
If they're similar to the infected from 28 Days Later, they should take the same damage as an ordinary person/survivor. If they're more skin to undead, one tap headshots should be effective with 9mm or 45 acp, 380 should still be wimpy.
As for their damage rates, the only issue I have is the plausibility of their DPS. Three infected, regardless of their nature, shouldn't be able to beat down a survivor in 5-10 seconds with their bare hands.

Detailed description of the events: I was passing through the military base (Dichina) checking for munitions and gear, which involved shooting infected on the north side with small caliber weapons, came around a wall exiting to the S/SW of the base and had a person in a gas mask pie the corner with weapon ready and open fire on me with an assault rifle. I attempted to make voice contact right as they opened fire, however they killed me within several fired rounds. They did not make voice or text contact with me that I could hear or see. I was not aware of this individual until they pied the corner.
I awoke this morning to find my whitelist application was accepted. I'm very excited to get going and get immersed in the community here.
I've been role playing for ~20 years, with the occasional dabbling in online role playing. I really enjoy the DayZ setting, but I'm not one for the "vanilla DayZ experience".
Unfortunately this week is busy with work, so my time will be limited until the weekend.
Hope to see y'all soon, though.
