Scrapers are insane Unitologists wearing a sack over their heads, armed with two crude claw-like contraptions grafted onto what remains of their arms. Their bodies are riddled with bloody gashes, scars and ritualistic markings, which hints at self-mutilation.
After Jacob Danik died, most of the members lost hope in the cause. But one Circle member, convinced by a "vision" from the Brethren Moons, decided that Convergence is not at an end. He rallied up some of his supporters, possibly other insane people that didn't commit suicide and gave offerings (various limbs, including their hands) to the Moons. Those who wanted no part in this were either killed or captured to have their limbs "offered" to the Moons.
The Scrapers are only encountered on the CMS Terra Nova and it is unknown what happened to the rest of the members after the Leader was defeated and the ship shocked into Earth space. Presumably most of them died with the blast that took place near the engine.
They are first encountered at the CMS Terra Nova in small numbers. They are not much of a threat, and can be easily taken out by a shot to the head. In most cases, they use Feeder tactics and swarm Isaac and Carver, most commonly during the two's hallucination segments.
Like Feeders, automatic weapons like the Military Engine and the Survey Charge fare very well against them in combat. Scrapers are surprisingly vulnerable against Hydraulic Engine-based tools, as they pause briefly before attacking, giving Isaac and Carver chance to slash/smash them into submission.
Tools that can deal damage in a wide area (Diffraction Torus, Conic Dispersal,...) also excel against groups.
- Should be noted, the Scraper is extremely similar to an enemy of same name featured in Silent Hill 3. Furthermore, said enemy from Silent Hill 3 is rumored to be a dressed cultist while all the other enemy types are inhuman monsters.
- If playing on Casual or Normal difficulty, a Scraper will die from a single shot, regardless of wherever the shot landed on his body.
- The Scrapers seem to share the same animations and A.I as the Feeders.
