I'm roaming around with a follower trying to get him killed for 30 minutes. It seems the lower his health, the better fighter he becomes. After getting his health into the low 40s, he is too strong to get killed even if I make him fight a horde by himself. He won't even get hit anymore.

Can he die?

Also, he became so strong, I can't even get myself killed while trying. He's too protective.

    Followers can get overrun by zeds like they did in the first game. They then get an icon above them while they are on the floor, indicating that they need help. I think they can die then but I haven't lost anyone so far so i cannot confirm. Hint: try taking away their weapons first.

Yes, a follow can die as mine died while I was attacking a plague heart. A bloater exploded in the building we were in and it knocked him down 4-5 times - eventually killing him. I then received the achievement: Sayonara (5G) - One of your survivors met a tragic end.

My base / survivor morale was hit with a few debuffs: -25 grieving and -15 managing grief (as seen in the photo).
