Slackers, also known as Bloodthirsty Simpletons, are enemies found in The 3rd Birthday. They are the most commonly seen Twisted within the game. Their only attack is limping to Aya then striking her with their blade arm. A way of beating them without getting damaged is by dodging until he strikes his arm then fire away or use Overdive Kill. It is even better if the Slackers hit a barricade as they will fall onto the ground leaving them open to attack. Slackers appear in brown, but there are blue variants which have more health.
An incomplete Twisted. Robbed of its consciousness, its body somehow blighted during metamorphosis, it was unable to complete its transformation. Its attacks are simple and consist only of charging forward. However, they often appear in swarms, and it's dangerous to underestimate the power they hold in numbers.
Usually found prowling around or dangling from above, searching for enemies. When it finds one, it immediately rushes forward, swinging its scythe. Indeed, this scythe is its chief method of attack, so if you find yourself engaging this Twisted, keep a safe distance from its slashing blade.
Its scythe can destroy barricades and other cover points, so make sure you always have the means to evade its attacks. Shotguns are effective at close range.
Sniper rifle sweet spot: Center of the head, around the "face."
Humans have been turned into Slackers; José Daniel Garza and Augustus Vassel turned into Slackers and are used in battle stimulation.
The Slackers seem to resemble the Monkey enemies from Parasite Eve.
