Further notes

Under Taker (nicknamed "Umbrella Trashsweeper" or simply "UT") is the name of a disposable humanoid Bio Organic Weapon. They are dispatched via helicopter to "clean up" any evidence of wrongdoings by Umbrella.


The Under Takers were created by Umbrella as a rapid-reaction force to counter t-Virus outbreaks due to the low-survival rate as expected with such missions and clean evidence relating Umbrella with the incidents. They were also given the added task of destroying evidence that could link Umbrella to the event, including the execution of witnesses and the destruction of the target area. To ensure the complete removal of evidence, Under Takers dissolve after the conclusion of their mission or when killed in battle.[1][2]

Under Takers were equipped with night vision goggles, black body armor similar to the ones used by the USS, and were armed with Heckler & Koch MP5s, some of which mounted laser sights so that they could snipe at enemies while concealed.

Although B.O.W.s themselves, the Under Takers were led by a human commander, at least during the events of the Sheena Island outbreak. Only the commander's return was permitted.[2]

Their mission in Sheena Island was to destroy the entire island using the laboratory's self-destruct device.[2]
