new creatures

i just started a new game and have already killed a melonhead.
tell me if you want to know the drops

Melonheads are so weak I can finally get to feel like a dogman for a change.

Yesterday I met one while scavenging, started to chase him all around as he was constantly trying to get away, but it was dark and he was blind (while I had my NV goggles on) so I beat him to death with a crowbar. Then, just before first Melonhead perished, another one joined the fight, only to escape on the next round, when he saw what I did to his buddy.
Then I stood in the darkness, watching, while the little coward and his second friend scavenged the forest and armed themselves with the branches. When they finally finished I attacked again, killing another one, while second run away into the night yet again. For his persistence, I let him go.

Panda, as I saw them unequipped and looting forests for branches my guess is they drop what they previously found - am I right?

Also, Dan said new monsters have some special abilities - is Melonhead's skill to multiply? Cause I met this first mate while scavenging, and suddenly he had two buddies nearby...

sometimes drop hospital gowns

Them dropping hospital gowns seems to suggest that they were in cryo same as you but something went horribly wrong.
Also some of the encounters make a big deal of you being from cryo.

Or maybe they come from some other medical facility or science lab. It would be nice to find such place and loot it dry :D

I was just scavenging at a shack in the forest and a melon head was there but didn't see me so i got closer and it saw me so i hit it in the head with a multi-tool then out of nowhere it took out a sauce pan and hit me in the chest.after i killed it i started scavenging the area again and found a rifle with ammo,about 5 rounds,also meds,water bottles(full),sleeping bag,and a back pack.

I recently found one while scaving i felt like a devil killing one though. I thought if i killed it i would get a rare item. Instead i get guilt. :(.
