|Kamikaze Crawler||Any difficulty||Easy||Medium||Hard|
|First appearance||E1M3: Disposal Area - Part 2 [?]|
The behaviour of the Kamakaze crawler is very similar to the behaviour of the basic Crawler. Upon being aware of the player's presence, it will begin to crawl towards the player. When reaching the player in melee range it will detonate its payload, killing itself.
It is wisest to deal with Kamikaze Crawlers as rapidly as possible, either from a ranged attack using the pistol, Pulsar, or a quick blast to the face with the shotgun, depending on the range you find yourself at when engaging the Kamikaze. It is possible to defeat the Kamikaze Crawlers losing no time at all (which is useful for speedruns) by timing a perfect Hyperblade attack, while difficult without practice, it's under no circumstances impossible.
It is possible to time a jump onto the Kamikaze Crawler with its detonation, allowing you to use it to launch yourself in the air, in a similar manner where you could do with the bazooka.
