The Reaper is a powerful Twisted and boss in The 3rd Birthday that is encountered for the first time in a cutscene after Chapter 0: Sacrifice. It makes two appearances in Chapter 1: A Brave New World, though Aya is unable to directly confront this Twisted due to its impenetrable armor and must flee instead.
It appears again in the beginning of Chapter 3: Against the World and once more in the middle of the same chapter, though Aya is still unable to fight it and is forced to avoid it. In Chapter 5: Counterattack, the Reaper is fought twice in the same stage, though it can only be defeated the first time by using a new weapon named 'Berserker' which was designed to break through its hard shell. After it is defeated the first time, it revives and must be fought a second time. Though normal weapons now affect it as well, it boasts an incredible regenerative rate and a heavy amount of health. Added with the fact that it deals one-hit attacks as well as heavy amounts of damage and its quick teleportation and trapping techniques, the Reaper is possibly the hardest Twisted boss and most formidable enemy in the game.
Reaper Glitch Edit
When facing the Reaper in Chapter 5, the easiest way to destroy the shell is to Overdive into a soldier with a Berserker (laser gun), the only thing able to penetrate it's armor, and fire at the reaper, then as soon as Aya is doing damage to the Reaper (when you can see a part of its life bar becoming red), pause the game and leave it for about 2 ~ 3 minutes (don't go into any of the menu options or it will disable this glitch), after unpausing the game the Reaper's armor will either be partially destroyed or the player will have killed the Reaper completely. This glitch is occurs due to the Berserker's continuous stream of ammo thus, when the player hits the Reaper with the laser and pauses the game, the Berserker will still be doing damage. This can glitch can be exploited in both battle phases and can be extremely useful, especially in the harder game difficulties. It should be noted that no ammo is wasted while the game is paused even though the Reaper is still taking damage. It should also be mentioned that since enemies take different amounts of damage on different difficulties, on Deadly difficulty it can take as long as 15 minutes of being paused, thus, on genocide/insane mode, it probably takes significantly longer than this.
