Humans who contract the T-virus quickly turn into zombies. These poor creatures have lost their conciousness, and wander around guided by instinct and their appetite to to satisfy their hunger for human flesh. In all reported T-virus outbreaks, the zombie is the most numerous hostile encountered by field operatives.
Umbrella's clean-up squad consist of genetically engineered and very disposable UT Troopers. Armed with an MP5 machine gun and protected by body armour, they often attack in numbers. Key troopers will engage you in close combat while others stand back and snipe from high vantage points. When killed, UT Troopers dissolve into the ground, leaving no trace that they ever existed.
We believe that the Hunter mutation is created when the T-virus contaminates human DNA. Since a Hunter's lower body muscles have been dramatically enhanced, these creatures can jump incredibly high and attack their enemies with razor-sharp claws.
These are ordinary cockroaches that have become exposed to the T-Virus, making them far more aggressive. If you find yourself surrounded by these pests do your very best to escape to the nearest door or ladder, as they hit you with tiny little bites over and over again which will drop your health at an incredible rate.
There are only two of these gargantuan beasts in the game, but that's two too many according to veterans of battles with them. Residing only in the sewers, they provide a nasty surprise for the unwary explorer. Giant Alligators use a bite attack to wear down their opponents before devouring their tasty flesh.
These giant arachnids can crawl along ceilings and split poison when in range of a target. These creatures combine frontal attacks with poison-belching in an attempt to disable and eventually kill.
Umbrella's successes with T-virus experimentation are not limited to animals. After the initial outbreak in Raccoon City which also created mutated plants, the corporation has created killer ivy to supplement its bio-engineered Tyrants. Ivy can move on their own by inhaling air through their skin and then exhaling it.Ivy has two main attacks - a slashing tentacle and an acid spit-ball.
The Tyrant project is the result of Umbrella's more advanced experiments with the T-virus. Genetically engineered with genes harvested from human brains, the Tyrant is large, formidable and difficult to take down. Lacking any weapons of its own, the Tyrant will attack using a head-butting charge and a flurry of meaty punches.
Tens of thousands of different types of genes were cultivated at the one cell level and then left to fight it out. The genes in cells that survived were cross-bred. Then the cycle of breeding and competition was repeated; call it "Natural Selection." Of course, the survivors were superior organisms and the experiments continued night and day. Over the course of three weeks, after natural selection had occurred with several million genes, one gene was chosen. The cell containing this gene has been found to benefit from sleep induction. It quickly overtakes other cells by causing them to sleep before killing them. The researcher's call this gene "Hypnos" (hypnosis) and further cultivated it. The Hypnos gene forms the core of the new Hypnos-T Prototype.
Hypnos Tyrant (Third Form)
In its final form, all ability for this monster to follow commands has been extinguished and replaced with a creature with a mindless rage. It acts very much like a berserker, not feeling any pain, its sole mission to destroy what it has set its mind on.
