The Shrieker is a mutated variant of the zombies that appear in Resident Evil 6. The creature has an overgrown larynx and when approached by non-zombies, it lets out a chilling, debilitating scream that can leave victims stunned. The Shrieker's cry will also rally other nearby zombies to its location, essentially 'ringing the dinner bell' as it were. The Shrieker's throat sac is also its main weakness: gunfire will burst the sac and kill the creature, which will usually cry out as it dies. Its death cry triggers a reaction in the brains of nearby zombies that can cause their heads to explode.
