“Look out, everybody, things are about to get awesome!”
Harpooners move at a fairly quick pace for their size, making no effort to seek cover, and relying solely on their own fortitude when taking fire. They wield harpoons, one in each hand, which they can throw over a considerable distance with a pin-point accuracy. These harpoons, however, are easy to dodge by side-stepping. If an enemy target is hit by a harpoon, he or she will be slowed down for a few seconds and will take minor "bleed" damage. Harpooners always try to keep distance from their intended victims. Only if cornered they will lash out powerful melee attack using both spears in quick succession. They wear minimal body armor and are very sensitive to incendiary damage.
