Undead Bear is a bear infected by the undead plague. The bear's skin and fur is torn open and mottled with blood. In addition to burning red eyes and near invulnerability, the virus seems to have given the bear a set of enormous fangs as well. Undead bears feed on the flesh and blood of living creatures. A bullet to their head will dispatch them instantly, and they usually run away at the sight of a torch.
These bears, like their normal counterparts, can appear out of nowhere, and can kill you instantly. Take the same precautions as with the normal, as they are not to be taken lightly, and use Dead-Eye Targeting to get a direct headshot. Fortunately, any weapon can kill the Undead Bear, thus making it easier to kill than the normal, but only if you see it first.
When killing undead bears with a torch, a good strategy is to stand still while on horseback with any Undead horse, and let the bear approach the player then whack it while it's attacking. Be aware that if the bear attacks the player from the side it maybe possible that the bear will hit the player instead of the horse. If the undead bear starts to run off follow it and continue with this tactic until the undead bear is deceased. However, when using the horse Death, take care to avoid running into the undead bear directly or it will die because of Death's special ability, and the player will not receive credit for a torch kill. Furthermore, Undead Bears also move slightly faster so stay alert. It should also be noted that they are more likely to appear during the day, so use the time to your advantage.
Undead Bears can be found in abundance between 7-10am near the ridge surrounding Pacific Union Rail Camp. Because it takes time to torch a bear, another bear will often spawn and join the attack.
