Cry of Fear Wiki

The Children are monsters that appear in Cry of Fear. Their appearance is that of a bloated, rotting corpse of a small child holding a knife in each hand. They wear a garment made of garbage bags and duct tape instead of clothes.

About the monster

The Children are very similar to the Slowers in terms of combat in that they are fast moving melee enemies. They attack by running towards Simon and then slashing him with a two hit combo from their knives once they get within striking range. They are a significantly smaller target than the twitcher and their means of attack as well as the considerably quicker rate at which they attack makes it dangerous if not outright deadly when cornered by one.

If you have plenty of ammo, it is recommended that you take one out at range. If you have to resort to melee weapon, the best way to deal with them is to try to keep them in the most open area readily available, moving in for a quick hit or two, then quick dodging away before they can counter attack.

Relevance to Simon

There's not too much relevance that these monsters has with Simon, but it's more directed to the pedophile/serial killer that used to live in the same building as the children.

The children could just relate to the children that are a pain to deal with in the apartment building for Simon after the hit-and-run.
