The Tele-Flanker is a form of Taken found in Alan Wake. Like Flankers, they have speed over strength, however Tele-Flankers are much faster and stronger. When they move, they appear as just a blurred outline. They can attack by either make one strong stab or three swift slashes. It is only when they stop to attack that you should boost your flashlight on them and peel away their protective shroud of Darkness. Once this is done and they stop moving again, do not hesitate to shoot them until they die. You will also face some Taken bosses, that appear as Tele-Flankers.
