The Modified Lickers (localized as Evolved Lickers) were a variety of Lickers which existed within NEST during the 1998 outbreak.[1] Their exact origins are unknown, whether they were genetically altered Lickers created by technicians, the mutant variety of Modified Zombies, or Lickers which mutated after surviving exposure to P-Epsilon gas.

Notable differences from standard Lickers include their greyish-green skin instead of the pale-red skinless bodies of their predecessors, thinner but stronger tongue and long singular scythe-like claws on each forelimb instead of talons. The Modified Lickers are somewhat more resilient to gunfire than their standard variant, though their brain tissue is still exposed and remains a serious weakness.
