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.
