    The Licker's primary weakness is its exposed brain. You can quickly dispatch a Licker with a few good shots to the head with an Assault Rifle.

    Use Flashbangs to Stop Their Movement

    Lickers are blind but extremely sensitive to sound. Knowing this, you can stun them if you throw a Flash Grenade at them to stop their movement.

    It Has the Same Timing As a Perfect Dodge

      • I can see marketing elements in the new part of the game. Currently, it is becoming more and more popular. All in all, I am not surprised it is a way to get extra money for game developers. For more information on marketing in games, see this article:
