I hate the lickers. They move around too quickly, possess super strength and use too much ammo.

I hope they won't be bullet sponges, especially as ammo is scarce.

Will it be possible run away from them? I can't remember how I dealt with lickers in the original.

Lickers are blind so you are able to walk around them without alerting them. Tricky to pull off by the looks of the footage, but more doable.

Try walking instead of running and if you have to engage them in combat get them on their back and shoot him in the chest once if my memory serves me right there heart should be exposed as soon as they're on their back shoot it and they die instantly

Wait where are the lickers? Played through the demo 5 times and never encountered one.

No, there are none in the demo except the window licker. (lol)

Lol thought I'd missed them. I did find a file that mentions they're blind and can be walked past.

Well you probably don’t remember because lickers weren’t difficult to deal with in the original.
You can't persuade fanboys. You'd be better off trying to convince a wall. ~CodeNamePlasmaSnake~

lickers aren't bad, now hunters...

i started collecting a good amount of handgun ammo in the demo.

ammo doesn't seem like it'll be too rare on normal setting which is good.

i like having a fair amount of ammo.

You can just walk past them if you're careful enough.
Even if you're quiet, the Licker can still sense you somehow and turn around to face you.
Don't panic and keep moving carefully.

The problem with leaving Lickers wandering around is running into them when being chased by Mr. X.

Walking. Never thought of doing that. I'll bear it mind when the time comes.

I'm sure there'll be a few instances where engaging is mandatory but I'll deal with that.

Thanks y'all.
