Not sure about flying zeds, but crawlers running under cielings would be cool. I like in natural selection 2 enemies can be above you.

I had a idea for a some what flying zed that i mostly had based for Summer sideshow.
Its was a gentleman like Manroach, with a top hat. This roach would hiss and taunt at the player and for a few mins has the ability to fly, but not too high. If decapitated, the roach would have a lower chance of flying, BUT, even if decaped, it still has a normal amount of health and does not bleed out (This is because roaches can survive without a head for weeks or so).
If possible, its weakness was anything fire based AND Medinades.
If zerks would slice the roach, zed time does activate and it does lose limbs, but this doesnt guarantee that its a kill.
Walking speed is slower then a stalker, swimming speed would be the slowest of any zed, and flying speed is medium speed. Its a med ranked enemy.
Though this manroach is a circus theme reskin, im not sure what it would look like normally or any other event.

I had this idea for a while, and only finally typed it out to the world, i hope someone likes it Or hates it.

Kinda a dumb idea. A giant roach? No thanks. I think this suggestion won't really work out in-game.

Flying enemies are annoying in general, it is one of those things that you don't know if its good or bad for gameplay until you test it, but I'm inclined to say it is bad.
