Due to their armour colouration, they are commonly referred to colloquially as "Tans" or "Browns" by the playerbase. They are notable for being far more aggressive and harder to kill than any other non-special Police Unit; they will often ignore moving to cover and push aggressively towards the players. Their heavy armour can catch unaware players by surprise.
These units will only spawn on Very Hard and above mixed with the significantly less durable HRU units , or spawn in pre-scripted circumstances that will come with a verbal warning from Bain. A notable instance of the latter would be the last day of Rats - there is almost always one Maximum Force Responder near the head of the convoy regardless of difficulty.
Due to their tactic of pushing forward quickly and the relative difficulty of suppressing them, it is advised to move around the stage if possible to avoid too many of them crowding into a small area. It is a good idea to treat Maximum Force Responders as lesser Bulldozers, and as such the most effective strategy is to aim for their heads with a powerful single shot weapon, such as a M , Bronco. It may take several headshots, but the increased power and accuracy of single-shot weapons means that less ammo will be used than if a fully automatic weapon was used.
It is recommended to use a scope to assist in scoring headshots, because unlike lesser units that will still receive damage from chest hits, shots against a Maximum Force Responder's torso are completely wasted. Shotguns are also highly effective against them at close range, as shots to the head with even one pellet will cause full headshot damage to them. A Mastermind with the Joker skill can persuade a Maximum Force Responder officer to fight against his allies. It is recommended to hit him with a melee attack or suppress him with concentrated fire before attempting to dominate him to avoid repeatedly taking return fire from him during failed conversion attempts.
Another method is to shoot his legs, as he will likely survive the attacks. If he is successfully converted, he becomes a powerful ally, as the majority of gunfire from his former allies will hit his bulletproof torso instead of his vulnerable head, though enough stray shots will still eventually kill him.
He makes a good "meat shield" for this reason. It is also good to note that, while the Maximum Force Responder unit is considered to be the toughest non-special unit in the game, he deals less damage than the HRU. It is advised to kill the MFR first as they try to deploy gas sooner than the HRUs do, as well as having more health and protection.
This model can be seen in use on Mayhem and Death Wish difficulties, the original still appearing on Very Hard, Overkill and various scripted spawns. Sniper Rifles and shotguns equipped with Flechette shells or AP Slugs are capable of piercing the Maximum Force Responder's body armor and thus damaging and killing him with body shots.
