(Capcom's primary storyline)
"No...you don't understand, Mark; I'm no different from them. I feel the hunger. So, please, let me die while my conscience remains."
When the zombie outbreak reached uncontrollable levels on September 24, 1998, Bob was already on the verge of complete infection, feeling the same intense hunger the already succumbed victims felt. When a zombie entered J's Bar, the unsuspecting bartender, Will was attacked; Bob fainted as the zombie arrived, preventing Mark from helping Will.
As an AIPCEdit
Bob can get damaged by zombies during the Outbreak scenario, however he can't be cured by Cindy Lennox, nor with the help of First Aid Sprays. If zombies manage to kill him before reaching the rooftop, the player won't be able to obtain his handgun. He becomes a liability in play due to the fact that his starting condition is Danger and he's already infected with the t-Virus. On higher difficulties, it is not uncommon for Bob to be killed before the player even reaches him. If you do not play as Mark and select Lone Wolf Mode there will be no Bob.
