If you discover individual freakers, we advise you to give Camouflage attack which neither attracts much attention nor consumes bullets. However, if a group needs to be taken care of, you can try to split them up and take them down in multiple actions, or you can handle Gasoline Can, that can be won with a skilfully placed shot and a great range explode.
