The Weeping Bat is a creature found in Silent Hill: Downpour. They appear as background characters in Oakside Park in PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royale.
It is often very quiet; it attaches itself to walls and ceilings, dropping down nimbly behind its prey before attacking.
Weeping Bats are fairly tough on the ground, but they're most effective when attacking from above. These creatures can cling to overhead surfaces, which allows them to move in and out of melee range very quickly. If a ceiling is low enough, a Weeping Bat can strike without touching the ground. If the ceiling is too high for a quick strike, the creature attempts to pounce on Murphy. When ranged attacks aren't an option, Murphy must lure the creature to the ground before he can attack. Run around the area until the Weeping Bat drops down from the ceiling, then land some strikes before it has a chance to retreat. A well timed hit should interrupt most of this creature's melee attacks, but watch out for its powerful double fist attack. When a Weeping Bat raises both arms above its head, block the incoming strike, then resume attacking.
