The handcrab appears as a decaying head with a hand reaching out of its mouth. It moves quickly, despite its appearance, and it jumps forward with extreme agility.
In the original Afraid of Monsters, handcrabs are reskins of the headcrab with nails protruding from the skin.
- The handcrab launches at the player hand-first and does minimal damage.
- The handcrabs are mostly encountered in vents and smaller rooms, due to their small size and agility.
- Melee weapons or shots from the P228 are the best way to dispatch of these enemies quickly.
