Whether you've successfully taken out a Cloaker or you're lying on the ground getting beaten by one while your teamates who come running to your rescue, every combat ready robber should be on the lookout - because Cloakers often move in groups of three: If you've got one pinned down or killed, chances are there are more Cloakers lurking in the vicinity.
The Cloaker is the kind of enemy that tests your diligence to maintain a fully loaded weapon, because if you empty half a clip into the Cloaker and then need to reload, he's gonna use that time window to run up to you and knock you out cold! He is a hard-handed teacher, but eventually the Cloaker will have taught you to keep doing tactical reloads, and not run out on your own when you've been informed that Cloakers are on the scene!
We've been told that the Cloaker - because of the green light emitted by his night vision goggles - bears a striking resemblance to the protagonist in a certain 3rd person sneaking game... We can only say that we're intrigued by the idea that those who are heroes in other games are the bad guys in ours!
