Yes. Zombies are the most common form of the Turned. Turned is a wider umbrella term used to describe all the infected beings that are present in the world of Unturned II (including some that aren’t quite of humanoid form), but in every other version from 3.0 and past, “the turned” specifically refers to zombies.
This logic even applies to the title of the game itself, as it’s called Unturned because you haven’t turned into a zombie (though the actual origin of the title Unturned itself is surprising and quite interesting if you’re willing to research it).
i feel like this doesn’t make sense
so, living people are supposed to get infected by this virus and get “turned” into zombies?
and so are dead bodies?
that just seems really weird, they’re literally called the “turned”
perhaps it only happens if you got attacked by a zombie and died from your wounds, except you didn’t actually “die”, you just got turned into a zombie, and then respawn at the beach, and the geared zombie version of you also exists
