Summary

Edgars are the agilest zombie in the game but are also the weakest in terms of health. With their tongue, they can disarm a single survivor. This tongue deals slow gradual damage while also dragging the survivor towards Edgar.

However, while shooting the tongue and when pulling a survivor in with a successful tongue shot, Edgar will be immobile and open to attack. This mob can easily turn the tide of battle, and can easily be shut down from doing so.

Background Story

"Edgar" is simply a code-name.

These were people who were very timid and shy before succumbing to the infection. As a result, their overall introverted nature led them to be fast and agile long-range killers, but also made them extremely fragile.

Rumour has it that there is one true "Edgar", whose real name is actually Edgar, with superior skills and a deadly air permeating from it. Its tongue is a sickly toxic green, unlike the standard crimson red. The whole thing has yet to be confirmed.

Controls

LMB
Claw: A basic attack which deals 10 points of damage to a player.

Consumes no energy.


LMB Hold
Tongue: Turns the user completely immobile, and a tongue shoots out to attempt to capture a player. If successful, the player is slowly dragged towards the user while losing 2 points of health every second. Additional damage can be dealt if the player is within range of the claw attack. If they are, they will periodically take 10 damage automatically.

Consumes no energy. Clicking at all after ensnaring a player will release them.

Tips

Survivors

  • Snipers and thrown Rambo Knives can kill Edgars instantly from a distance.
  • Attacking an Edgar's tongue can still kill them.
    • If someone is being dragged away and the culprit is out of reach, you can still save them.
    • Occasionally, stunning one by its tongue will force it to retract — essentially releasing the survivor.
  • Keep on moving to avoid being captured easily. Standing still makes you an easy target.
  • When an Edgar launches a tongue, it stands still, leaving it incredibly vulnerable.
    • Use this as a chance to kill it.
    • This also applies when an Edgar is dragging a player towards it.

Zombies

  • Your agility will be your greatest strength or your greatest downfall.
    • Keep on moving to make you a harder target to hit.
      • Your jumps can scale what others have to climb in a fraction of the time.
    • Due to your high speed, you are easily attracted to a Pipebomb.
      • You are still able to use your Tongue attack while you are being attracted to one.
        • By just shooting your tongue, you stop your approach towards the Pipebomb.
        • You could also try shooting your tongue at the survivor who threw the Pipebomb and drag them into the blast radius. If successful, they are killed and you get the cash.
  • Master the tongue. An Edgar who can aim with it is deadlier than one who cannot.
    • When you have someone caught, other zombies can still damage the player. This can cause a swift death.
      • If you pull a one all the way towards you, you can wiggle around for them to take even more damage.
    • While on a high building, you can pull up survivors to then drop them down to kill them.
    • You can still use your tongue in mid-air to capture survivors.
      • This isn't recommended, as people can just attack your tongue to kill you and not you directly.
    • Don't forget you still have your basic attack.
      • Combined with your agility, you can easily finish off a weakened survivor.
  • Try to avoid snipers or flying Rambo Knives as they can kill you when you least expect it.
    • Fire too will also be an adversary. A small touch from a source will cripple if not outright kill you.
  • Due to your low health, playing aggressively will get you killed.
    • Pick off stragglers from a group instead.
  • Edgars are able to still able to pull dead survivors around the map.
    • Pulling a corpse into a deadly or impossible area will make those Defibrillators useless.

Trivia

  • The Edgar has the lowest base health pool out of all the mobs in the game.
  • This is one of the two zombies in the game that can incapacitate a player, with the other being the Leaper.
  • This is the only special infected that does not have a single sound effect.
    • However, it does have a unique animation when moving, where it seems to act like a lunatic.
  • Edgar is a returning mob from R2D 2014, in which it was a rare Smoker mutation.
    • It originated as a zombie mask which was obtained during the ROBLOX Winter Games 2015 Event.
  • A new tongue mesh was implemented in v0.9.7, making it cleaner and visually appealing.
  • In v0.9.8, the ability to pull survivors up while being above them was implemented.
  • A rare bug can occur where two Edgars can capture the same survivor, as seen here.
    • This can also happen vise versa, where an Edgar can fire out two tongues at the same time.
  • There was a bug in where if an Edgar kills you, instead of rag-dolling normally, you exploded into pieces, rendering you unable to get revived.
  • Another rare bug can occur in that while you are stuck in an Edgar's tongue, your HP doesn't slowly drain like it usually does.
