Um... gripping you holds you down for it to bite you. No arms just means that it's easier to evade its shambling attacks because it can't even grab onto you, and these zombies aren't really renowned for their agility.

I'm still not seeing how their arms being blown off makes them more dangerous. The arms aren't used in place of a biting attack; the arms are used to hold a person down to be bitten. While I guess lacking the weight of the arms might make them very slightly faster, I don't think it'd really have any practical, positive impact for a zombie.

Lets get back on track.
Health SHOULD be done with individual wound tracking. Although DF goes overboard in this.
I've always wanted to do it where a person has head, each arm, each leg and their torso tracked. Then when they get hit it selects a semi-random area, depending on how accurate the shot was and then hits for either a wound, serious wound, critical wound, or removal of limb.
Wounds start to bleed, each successive level bleeds more per turn. and people only have so much blood.
Serious wounds have to be delt to by a doctor, or they have a small chance of killing someone each day.
Critical wounds have to be delt with, or have a large chance of killing someone each hour.
Limb removal is almost always fatal, unless delt with by a highly skilled doctor immediatly.

Something like that.

I would say that it depends on what part of the limb is removed, and which limb.

It would be fun if it was Dwarf Fortress styled, with you biting of each finger and toe one-by-one, on a zombie.
But yeah, have a dismemberment system.
Have the ONLY way of killing a zombie be killing the brain.

But zombies would never work in reality, since the brain would be damaged shortly after death (no breathing, no blood circulation), and it doesn't take long until it's impossible to move.

Well there are multiple logical and illogical ways to counter that: they may not die, they may not rot, the virus may alter the body, and magic of some sort could be involved.

I REALLY want to shoot you now Luke. You Did not need to bring magic into this.
Most likely the virus keeps parts of the body working (say, nerves and musules) and enhances them (as Pocalypse zombie bites can bit through car doors, at least) and lets other, less needed things rot, such as skin.

Hey, it's completely possible until some bozo in a white coat claims that it's impossible, and then it's still somewhat possible.
