Bouncers are clad in a basic heavy diving suit, the entire torso of which is covered by a high-gauge metal carapace. The head protrudes directly forward from the upper chest area, and is encased in a hemispherical helmet studded with eight lit portholes and appear to be based on the French Carmagnolle diving suit's design. A large, fully-functional conical drill is attached to the right arm just forward of the elbow, and is used for powerful melee attacks. The Bouncers gets their name from an attack they use, in which they strike the ground with their drills, resulting in a tremor that gives close-proximity enemies unstable footing. This Big Daddy type could also get their name from their likeness to nightclub employees paid to prevent certain patrons from entering, also named bouncers. Bouncers at nightclubs are also usually rather strong, and occasionally resort to violence, as this Big Daddy does to protect his Little Sister from Splicers. The Bouncer's main weapon is an oversized drill (and, in the case of an Elite Bouncer, a spinning handclub) attached to its right arm and powered by the internal combustion engine on his back. They generally attack using powerful blows at close range, with a fast charge being their only offensive long range ability.
