Huggers are the bane of many players existence. These problematic creatures are infamous for appearing during chapter 1 of Easy Company on Normal/Hardened/Veteran or Nightmare Modes. They are also found in Alpha Company in the Destroy the Compliance Nexus mission and before and durring the battle with Perses. Several Huggers are also found around the airlock in the begining of Apollo Security Team. Physically, they resemble small Infestors that are much quicker. However, their role is entirely different. Huggers exist for one purpose: to ruin games. Huggers are able to immobilize players with the Neural Parasite ability.
When a hugger is near, A small patch of terrain will typically be revealed at the Huggers location. This is unpredictable, and Marines should always use extreme caution if huggers are around and they are away from their squad.
Huggers posses the unique ability to ensnare a player with a long vine-like tongue; a process called "hugging". When "hugged", a player is totally immobile and unable to move or attack, but they can still use items. If not quickly rescued or protected by teammates, a "hugged" Marine will surely die to even the weakest enemy.
-NOTE: Huggers can not be Mind Controlled as they will explode.
