The Spitter

The Spitter is one of the masters of ranged combat for the Xenomorph team. Though you lose the ability to spit neurotoxin, you gain a powerful acid spit and spray that can quickly incapacitate your targets. Remember that you are also a glass cannon and will best help your team by being ranged attack and support, not by running into melee fights where you can easily be brought down by weapon fire or explosions.

Playing the Xenomorphs Call of Duty man

To engage the marines and make the xenomorphs prevail, you can:

  • Use acid spit to hit marines
  • Poke around corners to shoot at marines
  • Spit acid spray to stun marines
  • Blast scatterspit to put the fear in marines' heart
  • Maintain distance between marines
  • Engage suppressive fire against marines' push
  • Extinguish fire, whether on ground or on xenomorphs, with acid spray

Your acid spit is a fast-flying projectile capable of traveling up to seven tiles. When it hits a marine, it will do damage both from the impact and from the splash it makes as it puddles on the ground. Unlike neurotoxin, this burn damage is permanent until healed. Acid spit has a chance to be blocked by barricades, and will land in front of the barricade if this happens.

Your second powerful ability is acid spray which sprays a line of acid across the ground up to seven tiles away. This ability must be channeled for a short time (less than a second) and will then spread in a line towards your target, allowing you to move away even before it's finished. Acid spray will knock down any marine that it hits and will do damage to anyone that moves through it while it's on the ground. It can also be sprayed through barricades, making it a powerful tool for attacking fortified areas.

Maturity Statistics and Evolution Paths

The Spitter can evolve into a Boiler or Praetorian.

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.

Tips & Tricks

  • Acid spray applied in the right spot can turn the tide of a battle or save your life if you need to escape. Don't forget to use it.
