A Mutagen is a NEMEXIS-engineered item that allows you to become a certain type of Infected upon death.
There are currently two known mutagens:
How to UseEdit
In Quarantine, a screen will appear at the beginning of each round. There will be three options:
- 0 = Infected - Pressing 0 will allow you to abstain from using the mutagen.
- 1 = Striker Infected - Pressing 1 will allow you to become a Striker (with unlimited stamina and increased speed).
- 2 = Crusher Infected - Pressing 2 will allow you to become a Crusher (with increased regeneration and longer range).
In any other mode, you will automatically use whatever mutagen you already have equipped once you become Infected.
