Red Dead Redemption - Fresh Dead

I've aleady posted stats for two versions of John Marston and Nigel West Dickens, so I thought I'd start posting stats of the antagonists of Red Dead Redemption - Undead Nightmare. I'll start with the basic zombies. The basic zombies seem to be vulnerable to fire and don't really seem to have a weak spot. The other undead creatures have specific weak spots, the basic hordes take full damage no matter where they're hit.

Fresh Dead

Str: 2 Dex: 2 Con: 2
Int: -2 Per: 1 Wil: 2
DPS: 26 Strength: Dead Joe Average (0)
EPS: n/a Senses: Like the Dead (0)
Essence: 6 Sustenance: All Flesh Must Be Eaten (0), Who Needs Food? (+8)
Spd: 4 Intelligence: Dumb as Deadwood (0)
Skills: Brawling 2 Weak Spot: All (0), Fire (-5)
Getting Around: Life-Like (+3) Power: 6

Spreading the Love: No matter who or what the zombie is, it infects the living in the same way. People who are bitten must make a Constitution Test, with a +2 bonus for a scratch or a light wound (9 points or less), no penalty for a deep bite or wound (more than 10 points of damage), and -1 for severe injuries (more than 20 points of damage). The Zombie Master may wish to make these rolls in secret. If infected, the victim suffers a wasting disease which imposes a cumulative -1penalty per day to all Tasks or Tests (i.e., -2 on the second day, -3 on the third day, etc.). After (Constitution + willpower)/2 days, the character dies. If a character is killed by a zombie bite, he will rise up as another undead in 3-30 minutes (3D10).

Background: Traditional undead are typical zombies, but actually quite fast corpses and will make up the bulk of the undead hordes. These zombies seem to be the only kind of zombie to grapple. This is possibly because they hold no other special characteristics unlike the other types.
