"Four-legged beast with a probe on its back. Once fired, it attaches itself and literally sucks the life from you."

This is one of the strangest-looking enemy in Quake 2: it resembles a dog, but it has a human-ish head and a gun grafted into the back of its neck. The gun fires a stream of, well, something :) which can be very painful. He prefers to attack at short to medium distance and on level ground. They have a lot of health, so be careful - sometimes after taking a big hit they will fall over and appear to be dead, only to jump back up again.
