It was later found that the original Flood from Earth 1 were all destroyed by the Soiturranians. The USSR cloned several Flood forms from various DNA databanks. While this proved a grand step forward for cloning, the data was lost as the flood immediately broke out of their containment cells. Infecting staff and soldiers, they advanced into the village mentioned above. It was publically declared that the outbreak was contained, but the actual method was firebombing. Only several major outbreaks have occured since.
The Flood now mainly exist in test labs beneath the USSR under exceptional containment, though the worry of an outbreak still worries some people.
Many report that the flood are still spotted roaming Earth 2, but so far, none of the reports have been true.
Forms Of Flood
Infection FormThe infection form is the smallest Flood form barring the spores. They can run across all surfaces with little issue and are excessively deadly for one reason: their tentacles. WIthin around 15 seconds, an infection form can slash open and invade the body, mutating the victim into one of the Flood, by taking control of their movement and thought functions. Though they are easy to kill, one shot from most things can outright kill an infection form, they tend to come in swarms which can end badly for the unprepared.
Human Warrior FormThe Human warrior form is exactly what it sounds like. A human, soldier or otherwise, dead or alive, unfortunate enough to get caught by an infection form that has transformed into one of the floods many drones. They have large claws which can mutilate anyone too close, and tend to operate weaponry they find on the ground, from pistols to RPGs. Rarely, one may be found operating vehicles such as tanks, though this is a very rare sighting.
