F.E.A.R. Perseus MandateEdit
Nightcrawler Heavy Soldiers appear towards the end of Perseus Mandate. This type of Nightcrawler soldier first appears in Interval 06 - Exploration - Labyrinth, and they are the player's primary opponents for the last four levels of the game. The Nightcrawler Heavy Soldiers can be distinguished by the fact that they wear a white goggle apparatus instead of the black mechanical facemask/gasmask worn by Nightcrawler Light Soldiers, as well as by their heavy equipment backpacks.
Nightcrawler Heavy Soldiers have even more health and armor than the Nightcrawler Light Soldiers, having just as much health and almost as much armor as a Replica Elite Soldier. Like the Nightcrawler Light Soldiers, they are also primarily equipped with VES Advanced Rifles. However, they also have access to heavier weaponry, such as 10mm HV Penetrators, Type-12 Laser Carbines and MP-50 Repeating Cannons.
Due to the better protection of their armor and heavier firepower from their weapons, the Nightcrawler Heavy Soldiers pose a greater threat than Replica Elite soldiers, especially on higher difficulties. When facing many of them, try to pick them off one-by-one, and target the one that has the heavier weapon first, especially MP-50 users.
