Start the following let's play at about 2:30. Notice that he dispatches two naked zombies which he doesn't burn. Now continuing with the vid watch what happens after he enters the save room and returns to the hallway. They disappear! All naked zombies do this (of witch there are only three), as does Forest and the two zombies found in the graveyard behind the main hall.

Of course they won't, since V-ACT works only on previously living tissue, meaning only on the zombies that were infected when they were alive. These zombies seem to have previously died and THEN infected. The T-virus gave only enough energy for their brain and joints to work. Their bodies have already decayed, leaving no potency for them to V-ACT. As for Forest, I have no idea.
Just a theory. :D--TrIxTeR11 05:20, May 24, 2010 (UTC)

Nothing I have read has ever suggested that. Honestly I think that's putting way too much thought in to it, when a logical real world explanation is most likely the answer.--Officer Jill Valentine 08:26, May 24, 2010 (UTC)

Well, thinking this through with logic needs pure thought since the T-virus doesn't exist in real life. --TrIxTeR11 09:06, May 24, 2010 (UTC)

What I mean by "a logical real world explanation" is maybe the programers wanted to ease up on the difficulty near then end.--Officer Jill Valentine 09:22, May 24, 2010 (UTC)

Oh, then why didn't you say so? If you did, then you wouldn't have got me talking. --TrIxTeR11 09:28, May 24, 2010 (UTC)

I figured the words "real world" would have been a tip off. I'll try and be more clear in the future.--Officer Jill Valentine 09:33, May 24, 2010 (UTC)

Also, food for thought. The Crimson Head article from the RE Archives.

--Officer Jill Valentine 08:29, May 24, 2010 (UTC)

Is the following statement true.[]

"Crimson Heads may also run after a player throughout the entire map, making them a hard to escape enemy similar to Nemesis-T Type."

In my experience I have never seen this happen.--Officer Jill Valentine 06:28, May 26, 2010 (UTC)

I don't think it is.-- Forerunner 06:58, May 26, 2010 (UTC)

Now granted in my play throughs, I do every thing in my power to not create any Crimson Heads. On the rare instance I do let one slip, I don't ever remember them following me into another room. You know that gives me an idea. A non burn run. Humm I will have to try that.--Officer Jill Valentine 07:32, May 26, 2010 (UTC)

V-acts of....[]

That zombie near the Serum room, is he going to wake up?

That zombie never wakes up, no matter what.--Officer Jill Valentine 23:19, May 26, 2010 (UTC)

What about that "crippled" zombie dead in the kitchen?

If you visit the kitchen before returning from the dorms (in a Chris game you have to if you want all the small keys), you will get ambushed by a zombie coming down the stairs (the CG scene). This will cause a crawling zombie to come after you. I belive this is the zombie that is near the elevator. Otherwise he never gets up.--Officer Jill Valentine 23:19, May 26, 2010 (UTC)

The body under the stairs near the serum may not be a zombie. Examining the body shows that he has been dead for a few hours. Though, does that mean that it's a Zombie killed by Bravo team... or did one of the researchers manage to survive until July? -- Forerunner 11:46, May 27, 2010 (UTC)

Trapped Crimson Heads![]

Ever experienced this?

When you get to the room with the cabinet, the nude statue lady and the First Floor MAP, and you go pass the cabinet (don't move it), getting the dagger and the zombie scene in the process.

Instead of fighting it there, you leave it, and it's trapped behind THE FREAKING CABINET.

I killed it with the Knife. Time passed by, and WHAM.

I trapped a crimson head. =))

You think that's it's possible to put this trivia (in a different way than how I wrote it, of course)?

~The Anonymous Person Who Likes Very Long Names. —The preceding unsigned comment was made by (talkcontribs).

Not really - not killing the zombie has since evolved into a legitimate strategy for early in the game.-- Forerunner 16:54, April 15, 2011 (UTC)

Emitting smoke[]

On one occasion, in the mirror hallway on 2F, I was able to watch a Crimson Head idling and I saw that it emits big puff clouds of some kind of smoke. Is there any in-game explanation for it, and how can we work it into the article? It's a very neat aesthetic detail yeyjordan 16:48, February 13, 2012 (UTC)

Any chance you could get an image of it? Playing a DVD-RW while on the game, for example, or with a camcorder inverted to record only the TV (not you recording you watching TV!) could do the trick.-- Forerunner 17:07, February 13, 2012 (UTC)
I vaguely remember them exhaling clouds of vapor. I don't have the game handy to capture it, but looked it up on Youtube. You can see it well in the intro cutscene for the Crimson Head Prototype (or Elder, as he's called in the vid). So far I haven't found a high-def version of the cutscene (that'd be ideal), but if nothing else could we just PRNT SCRN it from Youtube? Raptor22 19:35, February 13, 2012 (UTC)
I'm pretty sure its their breath emitting the "smoke" —Riley Heligo 19:44, February 13, 2012 (UTC)
I take it there is some unusual chemical reaction to explain this. If this is happening inside the mansion, it could be indicative that it isn't water vapour (I mean, does it look cold?) but some sort of mutation.-- Forerunner 22:56, February 13, 2012 (UTC)

It appears one of the images in the gallery illustrates this slightly: Bows ch. It seems to be a special mutation; simple breath condensation could be ruled out because no other character or creature in the game has it, and the game is set in the dog days of summer anyway.

Even if it's just breath condensation, though, it's still interesting to note that the Crimson Head also has its respiratory system back online after having been a shambling corpse. yeyjordan 05:27, February 14, 2012 (UTC)

It's possible it could be dust as well. I mean, I've heard things like Zombies supposedly spewing dust in some movies. (oh wait, that might be Mummies.) Anyway, you do have some interesting points. The condensation could be for show. That looks like official art more than anything else. Glitchhunter09 09:42, February 14, 2012 (UTC)
