BOG SHRIMP (METRO 2033)
Metro: Last Light
Bog Shrimps, also considered shrimp mothers (though game files would attribute them more to alpha males), are massive camouflaged off-shoots of Amphibians reasonably speculated to be elder shrimp. They seem to be extremely territorial, as only one is found in an area at any given time, and they fight viciously against other mutants; they are only seen in the Swamp and Garden levels (though the latter is already dead). They also seem very persistent in chasing escaping prey, unlike smaller shrimp. It’s possible that they are either prey or a challenger to the mutant Bear, as one is found with its head torn off in the Garden level – both Demons and Watchmen would find the task impossible, given their armor, so the Bear is the most likely assailant. Like the Amphibian, Bog shrimps are armored on the back and on their front claws. However, due to their size and tendency to charge, they pose a much greater threat. With several dozen times the amount of health as an Amphibian, and nearly twice the range and damage capacity, they are an event to fight, and should always be a priority of concern for players when they are spotted. Like Amphibians, Bog shrimp are vulnerable to successive and concussive blasts, often separating their claws when charging, about to attack, or upon massive damage, leaving room for several hits, should the player be ready.
