Thuggish Splicers return in Bioshock 4.
Thuggish Splicers first appear in Rapture Welcoming Station. This time around, they hac=ve all new attacks, thus making them just as deadly. Here they are:
- Run and Jump - They run at you, jump in the air, and swing at you, doing damage and minor knock back.
- Baseball Swing - They hit you with their melee weapon like a baseball bat, doing medium damage and medium knockback.
- Swing - They simply swing their weapon at you, doing minor damage and virtually no knock back.
The Thuggish Splicer upgrades, and it now is a lot more deadly, though not as deadly as it's Bioshock: Armageddon counterpart. It is now immune to all electrical attacks, and whenever you melee it, it shocks you, nearly tripling it's melee damage.
