Irrational Games has released the third installment in their video series dedicated to revealing BioShock Infinite's Heavy Hitters. The first two Heavy Hitters revealed were the Motorized Patriot and the Handyman. The Heavy Hitter revealed today, however, is a little different.
The Boys of Silence only use sound; they are blind so they can't see you at all, but they can hear you. It's up to you if you want to take them on directly or try to sneak around them, but with their enhanced sense of hearing there isn't any safe option. The Boys of Silence are pretty eerie looking, with a brass-looking mask that completely covers their face but features two trumpet-like openings on either side of the head, near the ears. We can only assume that these openings serve to further enhance their ability to use sound as a weapon.
Check out the video above as Ken Levine, Shawn Robertson and Nate Wells of Irrational Games take you on a tour of what went into the design on the Boys of Silence. Visit http://www.bioshockinfinite.com/ for more information on the game!
