Bioshock Infinite's Siren brings enemies back from the dead

The latest Heavy Hitter, plus a couple we missed

So we somehow neglected to tell you about certain of Bioshock Infinite's Heavy Hitters - powerful, invariably hideous monsters that roam the streets of airborne Columbia. What a disgrace. Rest assured that the man responsible for this terrible oversight (me) is being severely disciplined by the man responsible for disciplining people (also me). Bad Edwin! No more Cadbury's Minirolls for you.

The fourth and final Heavy Hitter stands revealed today. You know the quaint old saying, "the only good [insert ethnic group member] is a dead [insert ethnic group member]"? It doesn't apply when the Siren's around. Her job is to resurrect downed bogies by screaming at them. An engaging tactical conundrum results: do you bosh the Siren herself, or her undead minions? Something to think about while you peruse the developer diary below.

The missing Heavy Hitters are: The Boys of Silence and the Handyman. Irrational Games boss Ken Levine describes the former as a sort of mobile camera platform, one composed of a blind man wearing a horrible gaping mask. Handymen, meanwhile, are large metal gorillas. Here are the diaries.
