They are noticeable for being large, hulking monstrosities who wear masks and have a chainsaw in place of their right arm.
In the first Killing Floor, their outfits more resembled that of a doctor, while in Killing Floor 2 they look more like butchers.
Once their health drops to a certain percentage (varies by Difficulty), a Scrake will rage and begin rushing madly after players. While raging, it is capable of damage other zeds that get in it's way. Once enraged, a Scrake never calms down again.
Scrakes can also block in Killing Floor 2, reducing all damage taken by 10%. However, they lose the ability to block once enraged.
Attacks that hit the chainsaw deal 80% less damage. Additionally, Scrakes take 6 seconds to bleed out after being decapitated, instead of the standard 5.
