The Bruiser is a strong opponent that carries a minigun with him. He usually takes a step or two then stops. There is a rare chance that you can decapitate the bruiser. (The easiest way to decapitate him is with the Brolander). His default spawn probability is 15%. He does not come out of Mook Doors due to balance reasons. A TNT planted on him by MacBrover can destroy him instantly, provided that the Bruiser doesn't sees him so the bomb can be planted, or his special is just as useful for luring him and destroying him. He has a weakness that is not shared by the Executioner, in which his minigun never covers his top half of the body so if your height is sufficient you can kill him even with a slow fire rate as his shots can't reach you. Ignition and Fear can help to defeat a Bruiser easily as it stops them from firing. Indiana Brones can use his whip to an extent that Bruisers within range will never retaliate. Broheart's Claymore, if thrown and is within fire range, it will deflect ALL the bullets, simply destroying the bruiser.
