The Sweeper is a Hunter-class B.O.W. that appears in Resident Evil CODE: Veronica and Resident Evil: The Darkside Chronicles. Developed by the "Organisation", the Sweeper is an augmented version of the Hunter "α" created by Umbrella.


Sweepers are an altered version of the Hunter Kai, again developed by the Organisation and used by Albert Wesker's HCF group during their raid on Rockfort Island. The Sweeper can be identified by its reddish skin. It fights in much the same way as the standard Hunter but its claws secrete a toxin that will poison its victims, making it all the more deadly. Like the Hunter Kais, Sweepers are also outfitted with cybernetic implants that connect them to HCF's Spotter drones. When a Spotter locates a target, it signals a nearby Sweeper to intercept and eliminate it.
