Hags are another product of a human woman infected by the Chimeran virus. This strain has a rather large head and a very durable skin. Hags can also float and fly, unlike their Boiler cousins. The Hag exclusively appears in Resistance: Retribution.


Likely due to their longer transformation period unlike the Boiler strain, Hags have a noticeably larger heads, and are able to levitate and attack with psycho-kinetic attacks. These attacks not only harm the victim, but also leaves them vulnerable to other Chimeran forces. However, despite these advantages, Hags suffer the same weakness as Boilers, with their heads being particularly vulnerable to gunfire, often exploding similarly to their other variant.

During the events of Operation Overstrike, Hags are rarely seen throughout Western Europe. They are initially encountered by Maquis mercenary James Grayson in the conversion center of Bonn. With the success of Operation Overstrike, most conversion facilities creating Hags and Boilers have been destroyed.


  • Hags, like the Boilers, have an only vulnerable weak point in the head in order to kill it. Hags also deploy a temporarily force-field and is vulnerable to any attack.
  • Hags attack by launching a mental blast at the player. This attack causes splash damage and can take away health quickly.



  • It's name, Hag, is based on a wizened old woman, or a kind of fairy or goddess having the appearance of such a woman, often found in folklore and childrens' tales such as "Hansel and Gretel". Also it is often seen as an malevolent deity.
  • This Chimera closely resembles the Boiler, but with a larger head.
  • According to a Resistance 2 co-op intel both Hags and Boilers can survive in intense heat.[1]
