Stalkers from all factions across the Zone may become Zombified, except those from [[Monolith]]. Monolithians are an odd case, in that while they display some signs of being zombified, they still retain tactical knowledge and some measure of sentience; it can be assumed that this is the result of their influence by the [[C-Consciousness]].

As seen at the end of Clear Sky's events, Monolith soldiers may be normal stalkers that have been 'indoctrinated' or brainwashed into protecting the [[C-Consciousness]] and the Wish Granter. Due to the Brain Scorcher's effects and prolonged exposure to radiation and Psi-Emissions, they may lose control of much of their humanity, and this may explain why many appear to resemble zombified stalkers. Many zombies can be seen wearing Monolith uniforms, which suggests that the process that created them causes long term degeneracy and brain damage and the '''C-Consciousness''' brainwashing lasts only as long as the victim's mind.

Zombified Stalkers possess the equivalent intellect of a caveman, add to this a loss of higher brain functions, destruction of pain receptors and loss of most memory and reason, Zombified Stalkers are more like hollow shells or husks of what once was. The fact many Zombies still possess the ability to use weaponry and equipment means that at least on a rudimentary level, some brain functions remain but are gradually lost over time. How zombified stalkers are not killed outright by massive doses of radiation present in every area they are found in however, is still not known.
