Gorefiends appear as the same as Gorefasts but dark skinned and has a long tongue, wielding 2 large swords wedged in both arms. They are quite durable and fast, while also possessing the ability to spin at a fast rate damaging their fore. They fulfil the role of the damage dealers and for a small line of defence in the specimen line-up. Gorefiends utilize same AI settings as normal Gorefasts and has difficulty-specific odds to spawn instead of their single bladed counterparts.
