The Gorefiend

Gorefiends appear as the same as Gorefasts but dark skinned and has a long tongue, wielding 2 large swords wedged in both arms. They are quite durable and fast, while also possessing the ability to spin at a fast rate damaging their fore. They fulfil the role of the damage dealers and for a small line of defence in the specimen line-up. Gorefiends utilize same AI settings as normal Gorefasts and has difficulty-specific odds to spawn instead of their single bladed counterparts.

XP Notes

  • Killing with weapons other than your current perk grants the XP to the perk that weapons belongs to.
  • Damaging with on-perk weapons and then finishing it off with an off-perk weapon divides the XP and grants it to both perks.
  • Assist kills grants full XP.


Gorefiends move slowly when docile, and sprint when enraged.
Gorefiends will only begin sprinting upon getting close (8m) to players. They do not sprint on sight despite having 100% sprint chance.
Gorefiends will sprint once they are shot.
Once enraged, Gorefiends will never stop sprinting until they are killed.
Movement speed is randomized within ± 10% range and further modified by a multiplier based on difficulty.

Walking speed (per difficulty) (216 - 264) x (0.9 / 0.95 / 0.95 / 0.95) x (1 / 1 / 1 / 1)
Running speed (per difficulty) (481 - 588) x (0.9 / 0.95 / 0.95 / 0.95) x (1 / 1 / 1 / 1)
Hidden speed 600
Sprint chance Normal - 1 / Hard - 1 / Suicidal - 1 / HOE - 1
Sprint chance (when damaged) Normal - 1 / Hard - 1 / Suicidal - 1 / HOE - 1

For comparison, by default a healthy player character with the minimal weight walks at speed of 383 units/s, and sprints at speed of 460 units/s.
