Irrational have revealed the final Heavy Hitter, a class of special combat-altering enemies that so far have included the Mechanised Patriot, Handyman, Boys of Silence and now the Siren. She’s a spectral opera singer that can reanimate dead bodies influenced by the 19th century’s fascination with spiritualism and the paranormal. I kind of hoping Irrational shut up now. I’d have loved to have met this thing as a surprise, it would have been terrifying.

It really looks like Bioshock Infinite is getting weirder by the minute. The latest Heavy Hitter announced is described as ‘a camera that moves’. It seems to be a small boy locked inside a helmet that listens for you and calls for reinforcements with a horrible metal scream. It suggests there’s more to the Hitters than just the brute force demonstrated by the Handyman and Mechanised Patriot revealed so far.

Here’s the latest Heavy Hitter to be (re)revealed for Bioshock Infinite: The Handyman. He’s under gone a little redesign since his brylcreem and moustache debut but the essential concept remains – big angry metal monkey man thing that will smash you up good.

Bioshock Infinite Mechanical Patriot

The new enemy is part of a class of Bioshock Infinite opponents called ‘heavy hitters’. Director Ken Levine has revealed the Motorized Patriot saying ”Unlike most of the enemies, he’s completely fearless. He doesn’t have a sense of self-preservation, so he’ll just keep coming at you and coming at you.” So he’s basically a clockwork Terminator.

BioShock Infinite PS3 Colombia

Speaking to PlayStation Access Ken Levine has been talking about what makes Bioshock, well, Bioshock. Levine says the decision to leave the sea and move to the floating sky city of Colombia came once he and Irrational Studios had decided they’d ”said what we wanted to say about Rapture”. Despite the shift into the clouds, though, the series’ creative director thinks it doesn’t matter where the game’s set, as long as it adheres…
