As seen in the picture, using a TV Sketch will distract them. They'll use their thinner buckets as a seat and watch intensely. Hitting them with anything (Paint, Thinner, Swing attack) will break them out of the trance and start attacking you again or go back to watching if you painted it.
Even after you have redeemed it with paint, the Sweeper will still throw Thinner to attack enemies. Therefore, it's a good idea to redeem it where there is no toon floor, as it may unintentionally thin the floor out while fighting. This can also cause problems if the player is painting another Blotling. The Sweeper's thinner attacks will partially undo the players paint, making it much harder to befriend enemies. This is especially true during the final wave of Blotlings inside the Blot, making it a tough battle for Hero players.
Sweepers with red eyes have increased toughness and their shots are more accurate. To defeat a difficult Sweeper, stay out of its path and then throw paint or thinner.They also resemble the brooms from Fantasia.
- It is a good idea to befriend a Sweeper if a Beetleworx is nearby as it will help you remove its paint shield.
- Sweepers occasionally are capable of spawning continually, making them a dangerous foe.
