Talk:Death cultist

"Death cultist" is pejorative. I can just as easily make an argument that playing as both human and zombie is in the "spirit of the game". In any case, simple willingness to play as whatever side you're on is not really anything like being a zombie spy. --LouisB3 22:35, 22 Nov 2005 (GMT)

I agree. I believe the key difference is death cultist's let themselves die when convient (like when they have enough XP for a zombie skill) or work to advance zombie goals while alive. Survivors who fight tooth and nail to stay alive when alive and work against zombies but play feral zombies when dead are not death cultists. Gaining XP using FAK so your hive mind horde can gain more xp for eating you IS death cultist activity.--Matthew-Stewart 23:47, 22 Nov 2005 (GMT)

So it sounds like death cultist activity as most describe it is more like "zombie spies who do other things for their zombie buddies besides spy" than what the page currently states. Am I right? --LouisB3 00:46, 23 Nov 2005 (GMT)

That sounds about right, except specifically death cultists also sure as zombie troops when they die, not the disposable 1st level scouts most people are familiar with as the classic zombie spy. The death cultists jobs could be as simple as "get a flak jacket and gain xp to buy skills useful as a zombie then die", also it has a more "apocalypic cult" and less cold war "commie spy" connotation. --Matthew-Stewart 01:05, 23 Nov 2005 (GMT)

Okay, I'm going to take a shot at this now. If I get anything wrong, I hope someone with a greater understanding of the connotations of slang than mine will correct it. --LouisB3 01:11, 23 Nov 2005 (GMT)

Not bad, not bad at all. Good revision. Helps clarify how they are different from normal survivors.--Matthew-Stewart 02:29, 23 Nov 2005 (GMT)

It's a community page. Just stay within NPOV, and you can edit away. -- Spiderzed 17:00, 11 February 2011 (UTC)


is a death cultist a survivor who barricades a building with a zombie inside? the zombie infected me, the survivor healed me, and then he/she barricaded the building with the zombie still inside. i have a screenshot. --- Son of Sin 00:28, 18 August 2011 (GMT)

More likely someone following some variation of the "cade, kill, dump, heal" tactic. Cading takes place first to prevent other zoms from entering the building. ~Vsig.png 02:25, 18 August 2011 (UTC)
Yeah that's not cult material at all. Bringing the cades down from the inside is more in line with the philosophy. They never lynch children, babies—no matter what they do they are whitewashed in advance 02:46, 18 August 2011 (BST)
Unless it is to build a pinata by letting a zombie in, cading and then leaving so he can ruin it. But that is an awkward way. -- Spiderzed 07:17, 18 August 2011 (BST)
