* This troper continues to go into hysterics whenever he uses the "Pick-And-Ohm" mod on pretty much any zombie in sight.

* An instance this troper experienced, mixed with CrowningMomentOfAwesome. Once, on a street in the city, took on a number of Infected and a Thug, and heard the approach of a Suicider but wasn't exactly sure of it's location. After my weapon broke, I was overwhelmed and killed. When I respawned, I found that the respawn point ''was only a few feet away''. The horde charged at me, when I heard the unmistakable "HELP ME" of the Suicider, very close by. I turned and saw it [[OhCrap right behind me]], so I quickly dodged left, the Suicider exploded and ''wiped out the whole horde''. [[NiceJobFixingItVillain Nice Job Fixing It Exploding Zombie]].


* Once, [[{{Tropers/Ryumaru}} This Troper]] tossed a molotov at a Thug. While he burned to death in the usual manner, when he fell over, [[YourHeadASplode his head exploded on impact.]] Equally funny is the time when I hit a Walker so hard he flew backwards and his legs popped off.
