The heavy hitters series tones it down a bit, the boys of silence are here with a new introduction, a creepy introduction. Blind but not deaf, you have to choose to go gung-ho with them or dance around them and hope that they don’t call for backup. They’re really a freaky creation, while a big hulking brute is intimidating it’s worse to have a bunch of stalkers roaming that can hear your every move and call in even more backup to do the same at a larger coverage area.
The developer video helps explain the mindset and why they felt it would be a great idea. Personally I understand that it offers variety but the thing just looks creepy.
