Could release a shriek that would break open nearby pods
Screamers were a variation of Swarm Juvies. Seemingly malformed, if a Screamer was released from its pod, it would release a piercing screech that would rupture all other pods in the vicinity, likely freeing a pack of Juvies to overwhelm the perpetrator.
Since Screamers aren't proper enemies, they aren't fought. However, to avoid releasing a Screamer and thus awakening additional Juvies, avoid popping as many pods as possible.
Behind the scenes Edit
Screamers are limbless and incapable of attacking the player, and actually die after emitting their eponymous scream, as if they were too underdeveloped to exist outside their pod yet.
Screamers only appear in the campaign.
