The Witch is a boss in Slender Fortress.
The Witch generally only appears a few times per campaign, and is passive unless provoked by flashlights, gunfire, or Survivors in close proximity. She is the second "Boss Infected." Pistol fire does not provoke her easily, but it will do only a small amount of damage (in Left 4 Dead 2, causing any damage to the witch will instantly startle her). She is very powerful, capable of incapacitating, and even killing Survivors with one hit. When the Director spawns a Witch, the faint chord of the Witch music will play, allowing veterans of the game to quickly prepare for the "obstacle."
In Slender Fortress Edit
The Witch is a charging helper of the Tank in Parish, she cries and starts growling and grunting when in pre-chase and when chasing she keeps screaming. The Witch is virtually impossible to escape and will often get you, even as a Scout. she insta-kills your head of while she stopped crying, you can hear her crying.
- The Witch in Slender Fortress is very, very heavily inaccurately portrayed than her counterpart in Left 4 Dead and Left 4 Dead 2. Some of the inaccurate aspects is that in Slender Fortress she gets startled too easily and instantly attacks at will, but in Left 4 Dead 1 and 2 she can only be startled if she gets shot or if a survivor is standing near her for too long. The Witch does not also "hunt" for survivors. Also in Left 4 Dead 1 and 2 is she focuses on the survivor that startled her and chases them until she incapacitate them before goring them to death with her long claws, before running away out of sight sobbing, but in SF2 she just instantly goes back to crying as if nothing really happened. The Witch normally is sitting down crying, the one in Slender Fortress is the Wandering Witch variant from Left 4 Dead 2.
- On DISC-FF servers the Witch can spawn by itself on any map. It also has an intro which is the Witch screaming.
