George Washington the man was a
respected leader and pioneer of American society. George Washington

about BioShock Infinite's so-called Motorized Patriot in Irrational Games' latest trailer:
The Motorized Patriot is one of the
“Heavy Hitters” featured in BioShock Infinite. These are
described as a class of enemies that – much like the underwater Big Daddy's of Rapture – will pose as challenging mini-bosses throughout Columbia. As
depicted in the video, this particular mechanized foe will sport a
creepy George Washington visage, a pair of US flags for wings, and a
handy “pepper-mill” Gatling gun.
"Unlike most of the enemies, he’s
completely fearless," Irrational's Ken Levine described to G4TV.

Levine further explained that “Heavy

BioShock Infinite's enemies, noting, "You’re going to come
across them in certain areas of the game, and they’re going to
provide a really unique challenge."
Irrational Games will be introducing
more enemies from its upcoming sequel in the coming weeks. Then
again, you can always just wait to meet them yourself when BioShock
Infinite releases on October 16 in North America, and October 19
