While I have no problem with freaks being in the game, I think it would be cool to be able to toggle them on or off in the difficulty sliders or maybe allow certain ones to stay in while others are disabled. I recently wanted to do a run through where the difficulty is on lethal and I start with a fresh community and there are no freaks. I would not allow my survivors to use any cure so if they get infected thats it, sort of a walking dead-ish scenario. However, if I do this with the freaks it will be much less enjoyable and harder especially when packs of ferals are skulking around every corner and early game its hard to get a firearm let alone find enough ammunition to take on even one feral. I know there's probably a mod for it and I'll most likely resort to it after I'm done typing this out, but I would much rather it be a feature in the game. Not only would it be more accessible, but it would also provide a choice for those who don't like freaks and would allow everyone more options to create their own apocalypse.
