The Glyphid Slasher is a more aggressive mutation of the Grunt, equipped with monstrously oversized claws and jaws capable of ripping through most armor and stunning even the hardiest of dwarves. Far more aggressive even than the Grunt, the Slasher is a terrifying opponent that should never be underestimated.
~ Miner's Manual Description

The Glyphid Grunt Slasher is a hostile Creature and a variant of the normal Glyphid Grunt. While sharing a body shape, the Grunt Slasher is covered in sharp white growths, and possesses much longer forelimbs which have completely over-developed into razor sharp claws. Their mouths are also larger and lined with menacing teeth.

On top of moderate improvements to health and speed, they have extremely powerful melee attacks which deal high damage and can stun a Dwarf with their "Crippling Slash" attack, preventing sprinting and halving their movement speed for 1.5 seconds. It should be noted that despite being called "Crippling Slash," the slowdown effect will also occur from biting attacks.

Slashers deal 2.5x more damage than a standard Grunt. At this rate, a single attack breaks a player's shield absent of damage resistance, and between 4 and 5 attacks will down a player depending on their maximum health. However, Slashers share the armor and weaknesses of normal Grunts - their mouths are weakpoints. They also take increased damage from explosions.

Combat

Glyphid Grunt Slashers will usually spawn in by burrowing out of the ground. They prefer to attack in groups, usually accompanied by other Grunts and Glyphid Grunt Guards, as they are easily dispatched on their own.

They behave similarly to Glyphid Grunts, running straight at players to engage in melee combat. However, Slashers have better health and movement speed, this generally gives them better odds at closing the distance to a target. The Slasher's Crippling Slash attack and the slowdown it inflicts leaves a targeted Dwarf wide open to other enemies. Slashers can repeatedly use their Crippling Slash to keep stunning a Dwarf.
