Upcoming Mutations (Spoilers kinda)

If you don't know, modders have already uncovered (and made playable) a lot of the upcoming mutations planned by Valve.

If you don't know the list, and want to stay surprised, stop reading now.

Otherwise, here they are:



Chainsaws (coop) - Everyone starts with a Chainsaw (unlimited fuel) and a pistol (unlimited ammo), there aren't any other kinds of weapons spawning, so it's just what you have at the beginning.
Four Swordsmen (coop) - Kinda like Chainsaws, except you start with katanas and no pistols, and there are only S.I., no Commons.
Hardcore (coop) -If everyone dies, you have to restart the campaign, so no restarting maps, you have to restart the whole thing!
Headshot Only (coop) - Self descriptive, commons only die with headshots.
Last Man On Earth (singleplayer) - It's you... against the S.I. (extremely scary)
M60s (coop) - Survivors start with only M60s (limited ammo) and a Desert Eagle, once you run out of ammo, you're screwed.
Max Specials (survival) - It's survival, with 8 S.I. at any given time!
Bleed Out/Temp Health (coop) - Everyone starts with 100 decaying health (pills-like), there are no medkits, only pills and adrenaline.
Protect the VIP aka Gnome (coop, versus) -There is a gnome next to you at the beginning, carry it through the campaign, person carrying the gnome can't use weapons and the gnome attracts infected!
Realism Versus (versus) - You already know what this is, versus with realism modifications.
Linear Scavenge (scavenge) - 2 Cans spawn, get those 2 in and 2 more spawn, proceed...
No Health Versus (versus) - No medkits, no pills, no adrenaline.
Versus Survival (survival) - Self Descriptive, it's a lot of fun.


So what do you guys think of these? What are your favorites/least favorites? Which ones do you think have great potential and which ones look awful?

Personally, I feel like headshots only will be awesome. And Protect the VIP could be very cool, among a few others.

But there are also some I think look awful. Last man on earth single player??? Those games will last five seconds before a smoker grabs you from a rooftop before you even knew he was there. Hardcore seems especially frustrating, getting all the way to the finale, then having to restart. And Max Specials? 8 SI at once in survival? You whole team can get jockeyed/huntered/smoked/charged at once! With four other SI left over!

Personally, I'm a little disappointed because it looks like Realism Versus is the best one. And we got that one first. I was hoping mutations would only get BETTER, not worse.

What do you guys think?

I'm looking forward to the chainsaw one and the last man on earth, as well as four swordsmen.
I have moved to PC gaming, so I
won't be on Xbox LIVE anymore.

Headshots Only sounds like the best Mutation ever. Proper Romero-style zombie killing, back from the Old Skool.

Shoot it man. Shoot it in the head.

Like everything, you have your good and bad. I'm liking the sound of Chainsaws and Headshots only. Bleedout and M60's could be fun. On the other hand, Max Specials seems kind of rediculas and Hardcore is kind of a ripoff of the one Halo Skull.
