[Request] Less graphic Sawed-off Zombie death

I recently stumbled upon the awesome sawed-off zombie on the R667 beastiary, but the death is a bit graphic. Could someone tone it down to to the family-friendly shotgun guy death I pasted below it? Thanks!

EDIT: Updated it with sprites showing his head, for reference.

It's not like the death you want is any less graphic; then again, I suppose you could use the non-exploding one for a fisting death. :P

Not every zombie is killed by a headshot, so the shotgunguy death is not as much "less graphic" as "more realistic". And for some reason, exploding heads or decapitation deaths aren't always appetizing (whille full body gibbing deaths just look tasty and pretty).

OH, of course, you're the creator Xim! Thanks for the zombie! I'm going to lengthen the barrel a bit and remove the second barrel and it will be the perfect winchester shotgun zombie! (And IDK if zombies are this awesome, but with another shotgun in his other hand, he could pose a serious threat to the player! But zombies don't deserve that power :lol: )

You're giving me flashbacks of MW2, now. :?

It could still be added as alternative death.

Anyway, here is my edit of the zombie. The barrel is a bit longer, and it's only single-barreled. (Also, I pushed back his hairline in the front-facing frames, because he looked weird to me)

I especially love how only the hand holding the shotgun is just randomly bloody.

Heh, in his zombified condition, he has shot hundreds of UAC personnel, and zombies can't feel the pain of popped blisters.

The zombie is working out good, but if anyone wants to take a shot at reforming his head, it would be appreciated.

You guys REALLY hate that sprite, don't you. :P

But yeah, I might actually make another head. What do you have in mind?

I love the zombie, I'd just like some edited death frames, like these rough ones I pasted together, but done better:

Oh, I thought you meant an entirely new head set for a second.

But yeah, here ya all go. A less creative graphic death animation for the sawed-off zombie.

Thanks very much Xim! Now the zombie feels a bit more logical, heh. I'll probably keep the graphic death as an alternative gibbing death.
