One of Wesker's Seekers

Seeker 2

A Seeker is an automated machine that is used principally for detection of hostile targets. It has otherwise been referred to as a "self-propelled surveillance device".[1][excerpt 1]

H.C.F. (1998)[]


Seeker's model, as seen in Code Veronica.

The H.C.F. used a model of "Seeker" that operated alongside their Hunter IIs. It would project a beam of light from its "head'', which is its sight. When it would detect movement from a hostile stepping on its range of vision, it'd alert nearby Hunters with a sound the B.O.W.s were trained to respond to.

Rival company (2004)[]

Krauser Seeker

One of Krauser's Seekers

Two variants of Seeker ("Flight-type" (シーカー飛行タイプ hikō taipu?) and "Bomb-type" (シーカー爆弾タイプ bakudan taipu?))[2] were also used by Jack Krauser during his fight with Leon Scott Kennedy in the ruins on the island. The "Flight-type" utilized a machine gun on its underbelly and, as the name suggests, was able to fly, while the "Bomb-type" resembled a walking spider and, as suggested by its name, was strapped with TNT primed to detonate when finding a target. Both can be easily destroyed by shooting a single bullet at them. In the remake of Resident Evil 4, a turret-type variant appears and utilized a machine gun on the underbelly of ruins, which they can easily be destroyed.

    Shūhen kiki no `jisōshiki kanshi-ki' ni yori kōdō no seigyo ga kanōna bun, heiki to shite no jitsuyō-sei wa orijinaru no hantā yori takaku natte iru. (周辺機器の「自走式監視機」により行動の制御が可能なぶん、兵器としての実用性はオリジナルのハンターより高くなっている。?)
