The Smoker is one of the special infected in R2D. All Smokers appear to have a unique head. The Smoker can be purchased for 65$ and the kill reward is 30$

Smokers, with beautiful teeth, are cigarette-eaters. Okay, that's a lie, but they can grab someone with their mutated tongue from a far distance, disarming the victim and pulling him slowly towards the Smoker. A Smoker can be extremely dangerous if the survivor is alone, which means if he gets you, and no one is around to kill the Smoker for you (unless you have Rambo Knife), and you're bound to die. They do extremely low damage every split second to the survivor they are grabbing, but for a surprise, they deal double the damage as a common Zombie does when they touch survivors. Fast yet weak, the Smoker is a dangerous specie for lone survivors. The Smoker is considered the disarmer class for the game.
