The Slowerno is a boss in Slender Fortress.
Despite being named Slowers, they are not particularly slow; they vary between an eratic limping shuffle and a maddened, flailing dash with their head raised at the player from motion to motion, sometimes catching against objects in the environment to shuffle wildly, seemingly oblivious. When they do close the distance, they will swing their hammer out from right to left or upward several times and while they are not the strongest foes, they are the most often encountered early, while Simon is armed with only a knife, making them particularly threatening in harder difficulty modes.
The Slowers are notable for its spasmodically moving head, which makes aiming for headshots difficult. It's advisable for players to dispatch them with body shots, or melee, while keeping mindful of their surroundings to avoid being backed into a corner. Early on, knife-fighting is the only option.
When Simon initially deals damage to a Slower, it will flinch back. This only seems to ever occur once per Slower. This offers the player the opportunity to make between three to four 'safe' knife stabs, while the Twitcher recoils. Players on Hard and Nightmare difficulties should learn to exploit this behavior early, in order to reduce the damage they take from the first few encounters with these foes.
Slowers exhibit a behavior where they will enter an attack stance--when approached in this stance, they can very quickly retort with additional attacks, and get in hits even if you dodge backwards. Their animation will change to them holding out their hammer or 'ducking' (entirely cosmetic) when they do so. Avoid knifing them in the few seconds after you've provoked them to attack, or Simon will likely take a hit or two.
In Slender Fortress Edit
Slowerno is in the Cry of Fear pack and does a lot of damage and is decently fast. He does at least 65 damage, because he can kill a scout in 2 hits. He yells and moans very loudly. He can also be stunned but be aware because he could kill you quickly if not careful.
- Use to have a clicking sound whenever he hits someone with his hammer, but it now sounds like a thumping sound. Slowerno used to have his own map called Cry of fear from his respective game.
