The Menacing and Beefy Vampire

Humans are an abundant food supply that the xenomorphs use to no end. Their faces ripe for facehugging, their psychic energy ready to be drained, and their blood untapped for unlimited potential. New experimentation from the hivemind sought to utilize human blood in light of this biological philosophy and due to the fact that the TerraGov Marine Corps' weaponry can overwhelm xenomorphs. With the power of human blood, the xenomorphs create a living tank that runs on human blood.

Playing the Gorger

Green overlay on any xenomorph is overheal.

You are a tank, not a ravager, meaning you can take in damage but not deck out damage.

Your responsibilities are:

  • Directing marine's firepower to you instead of your squishy xenomorphs
  • Ensuring that you have overheal to truly tank marines' shots
  • Stealing marine's precious blood to advance your goals
  • Draining and rooting marine so that other xenomorphs can wombo combo
  • Healing wounded xenomorphs with marine's blood
  • Providing overheal to xenomorphs

What makes gorger completely different from other xenomorphs is that the caste can take a lot of damage from marines. That said, this is not to say you can reliably rambo alone against marines without your fellow xenomorphs helping you out. Marines are capable of killing you, so you must have a way to escape safely so that you can recover from being swiss cheese.

To enable you to withstand marines' punishment, Overheal protects you from marines before your health and sunder start to get hit. You gain overheal from Drain, which roots marines for 4 seconds. You can give xenomorphs overheal with Transfusion if they are in full health.

You gain blood from Drain, whether alive OR dead marines! If there are more than one gorger, they can wombo combo a marine to get their blood. Note that this does not take actual blood for marines, so marines can rest assure that they don't die from hypoxia, or oxygen damage due to low blood.

Protect other xenomorphs by giving them overheal.
Some dead marines will have enough blood for you to drain.

Maturity Statistics and Evolution Paths

Maturity increases stats as follows.

  • Slash is the melee damage when the xenomorph is in harm intent and slashing marine. In the code, it's melee_damage.
  • Melee, bullet, laser, energy, bomb, bio, rad, fire, and acid are soft armor values, not hard armor, which means that they reduce damage by a percentage rather than a flat value.

Psychic Link
Channel and link to another xenomorph. When linked, you rest and take 50% of their damage. The link persists until you unrest, get too hurt or your partner moves too far away. 0 50 seconds
TGMC Drain.png
Hold a marine in place and deal small damage over 2 seconds, gaining 80 blood and overheal over time, not instant! The marine can still shoot/do stuff during the duration and after the ability is broken it staggers them slightly. You also can't slash while performing this.

If cast on a non-revivable human, restores health at a faster rate than resting and sunder at normal rate, without granting blood. This uses the corpse's blood and you can only drain corpses which have sufficient blood.
