Hovercrabs are a type of The Gifted that appear on the Terraces. As the name implies they are levitating enemies. They have 3 objects, (usually pans, ladles, shovels and hammers) orbiting around them that will block attacks, similar to the Swirler's chairs (however, unlike said chairs, they cannot be destroyed by prop-breaking attacks).
Hovercrabs attack by chasing you and dealing contact damage, occasionally shooting out 3 projectiles (indicated by raising its claws) in a cone shaped pattern.
Its seems that leader hovercrabs have two behavior patterns: they either just chase player or shoot as fast as they can. Also they shoot thrice in a row.
