What Are Stalkers?

Stealthy Infected

Stealthy Infected

Stalkers are a type of Infected that track and ambush their targets, hence their name. They usually hunt in packs and are likely to lie in wait to pounce at their prey at the right moment.

Hides From Listen Mode

While not completely invisible, Stalkers are good at hiding from your Listen Mode. Be wary of any movement or sounds and use noise to your advantage when determining their locations.

Can One-Hit Kill You

Stalkers can one-hit kill you

As Stalkers tend to hunt in groups, getting caught by one of them can be disastrous as it signals others to gang up on you. Getting caught by one from behind can spell a quick death regardless of your remaining health.

First Encountered In Hillcrest

You can flank and catch Stalkers unaware if you're careful. You can even grab them for melee kills! Know their positions and walk slowly to effectively pull this off!

Might Not Work The Second Time

If you try to throw bricks and bottles again after using one to draw them out, Stalkers might figure it out and will stay in their position instead. They may also refuse to be tricked if they know your current position.

Use Dead-Ends & Hallways To Funnel Them

Use Dead-Ends To Funnel

You can establish a kill zone by deliberately putting yourself at at corner or at a dead-end. Then make some noise to rile up the Stalkers and you can shoot them down as they run towards you. Just make sure you have enough ammo before you do this.

Cover Flanks With Trap Mines

Plant Mines & Traps

Cover your flanks by planting mines whenever you move forward. Stalkers tend to approach you from the behind or from the sides, so leaving some traps may eliminate those that attempt to ambush you. Remember that you can always recover unexploded mines.

Place Mines At Crossroads Or Entrances

Mines are very effective against the Stalkers. Make good use of them by placing them at crossroads or entry points to kill those that attempt to flank you.

Can Be Fought In Melee

Can Be Fought In Melee

Unlike Clickers that can kill you with a single hit, the Stalkers can be fought with melee weapons. You can also use your fists if you run out of tools to fight them.

Be Wary Of Other Stalkers

Fighting in melee alerts other Stalkers to your position. Even if you win your initial battle against a Stalker, others might pounce from behind and kill you with one hit. Be sure to use weapons instead after a dodge to quickly dispatch of Stalkers.
