Lab workers are rare enemies in Far Cry.
They are identifiable by their lab coats, glasses and hair-covering hats, and can be found throughout the science labs. Unlike the scientists who only wield Desert Eagles, Lab Workers can sometimes be seen using P90s and Jackhammers, however most of them will still carry a Desert Eagle. Unlike Scientists, Lab Workers will not drop a health pack when they are killed.
- They are one of the rarest enemies in the game, appearing only in two levels - Bunker and Archive (excluding their corpses found in many others).
- They are mistakenly referred to as "Older Scientists" in some promotional material, including official Polish manual for the game.
