Crog Brutes are an enemy type that appear in the Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare Zombies map Attack of the Radioactive Thing. They are a taller and stronger version of the Crogs. It looks like a larger Crog, albeit with a dark grey skin compared to the Crogs' green skin. They also have an esca, not seen on regular Crogs.
They will start to appear at around scene 12, and upon spawning, will play a sound similiar to when a Brute spawns in Zombies in Spaceland.
They have a large amount of health and move quickly which can pose a large threat to players who are not well prepared by that scene. They, like the Crogs, have a weak spot on their back which appears as a green splatter on its back , from which they are disposed of easily.
Crog Brutes have a suite of abilities which they use against the player, the first being a charge where the Crog Brute puts both its claws forward and runs at the player, doing two hits of damage. After the charge ends, the Crog Brute will be unable to attack or move. The second attacking involves the Crog Brute using its esca to emit a bright flash which blinds and deafens players looking at it. During this peroid, the Crog Brute will remain completely still. The third and final attack is its burrowing move, where it burrows under the ground, showing only its esca above the ground and emits a beeping sound. Upon getting close to a player, it jumps out from under the ground, doing splash damage to all nearby players.
Also, Crogs will appear alongside the Crog Brute, even below scene 20.
