The Crab is an abomination created by the experiments conducted with the Mortifilia by Herbert Friedman. It is a mutation of the type 2, due to the hypertrophy of generalized limbs, which causes gangrenous lesions all over the body, and it has an enormous arm. It has no head, and its chest has opened showing its ribs and meat.
The creature supports its weight by using its giant arm and its design is vaguely reminiscent to a giant crab.
It emits a loud roar when attacking and, unable to count on a great speed, prefer to use some kind of prehensile claws planting in the ground and can bring them out in a straight line away from its body. Generally it moves slowly toward the prey, trying to attack them with their huge limbs causing heavy amounts of damage. But, despite its devastating attack, it is sensitive to light much more than the other creatures and always recoils when its is devoid of Mortifilia spores.
The monster has 3 attacks:
- Normal Stomp with its arm into the ground, damaging any subject close
- Stomp its arm into the ground and some kind of claws burst out from the ground, in a linear way following its prey
- Stomp its arm, but this time it burst out a kind of root in a circle around it, it makes 3 circles more far every time.
As every monster created due to the experimentation of the Mortifilia, the best technique to deal with a Crab is to use a flashlight forcing it to move away and then shoot it at a safe distance with guns or rifles.
Here's a chart of the Crab's endurance, measured by how many bullets to it takes to kill monster with every weapon:
|Firepower||OLD||FRIEDMAN'S||OLD||REVOLVER||2 BARREL SHOTGUN|
|No Dark Aura||15||10||5||6||3|
Ashley Thompson deals more damage than the other players:
|Thompson||OLD PISTOL||FRIEDMAN'S PISTOL||OLD SHOTGUN||REVOLVER||2 BARREL SHOTGUN|
|No Dark Aura||
- There's a beta version of the monster that has a great resemblance to an actual crab. It also has an actual model and a mini statue made by the developers.
