He'll ride you, he'll control you, and in the end, he'd have sucked your blood dry. No, this is not some scrub of a guy out to date your sister. It's the newest Special Infected from Valve's Left 4 Dead 2 (Xbox 360, PC), and you can see him right for yourself at this weekend's PAX 2009.
The Jockey, from what I'm hearing, has the potential to be even more worrisome than that angry Tank. It doesn't seem to be as big and bulky, no, not at all, but it sure is sprightly. And that's what you should be worried about.
See, he jumps on the Survivor's back, attacks them by presumably gnawing at the flesh from the neck, or back, whichever appears fleshier at that point in time. BUT. And this is the even scarier part. He does not just wound you, he controls you.
Yes, when he bites you, he controls your mind. Think toxoplasmosa gondii, only running. Running fast. At you. Shiver And then just when you snap out of it, you'll find yourself already running into the welcoming arms of the hungry undead mob.
Yeah, am liking this guy.
