The Crawler is one of the special infected in R2D. All Crawlers appear to sit idly. The Crawler can be purchased for 20$ and the kill reward is 20$

Crawlers are zombies that gave up on walking and decided that crawling is an easier way to move around. Eating fresh meat from survivors with impressive agility, the survivors have called this the fastest zombie. Their willpower to eat the survivor's brain is so high that they do everything to avoid the bullets by doing zig-zag and bunny-hopping, making it difficult kill this zombie. One of the Crawlers once put a C4 on his back and other Crawlers admired his idea, so it became a popular thing for them; die explosively in the survivor's face. The Crawler is considered the ninja class of the game.
