Hunters possessed limited capability to follow orders, though retained a reasonable level of intellect.
Although the Hunter II and Sweeper heavily resemble the standard α model, they do differ in some ways. While the α model appears to have irises in its eyes, the Hunter II and Sweeper models feature glowing eyes and slightly more muscular bodies than their α brethren.
In the original Resident Evil, Hunters are extremely fast, capable of running in circles around the player if they are allowed to get within close range. Over the years, they have slowed down some, with RE Revelation's Hunters being the slowest. However, they are still annoyingly fast and hop around sideways to dodge incoming fire.
