Will the flood in this mod (more specifically the infection forms), add alive/dead actors or bipeds to their ranks via the infection form's infection capabilities as seen in Halo 3? Or do they play out like the stock infection forms, jumping onto a host and make their little munching sounds (have you guys ever heard that odd little munching sound they make?) until the host drops dead?
Infection forms will convert bipeds to their flood forms, so an elite attacked by a flood infection turns into a flood elite.
They won't infect dead bipeds on the ground without it being setup intentionally, as far as I could tell.
Additionally, some bipeds (other than just the flood_carrier forms) will drop flood infection forms on death, creating a loop.
This makes the normally benign flood infections terrifying in a situation where you have many allies.
