The Spitter

Spitter Rundown

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 Spitter

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.

Tips & Tricks

  • Spitters are very accurate. Take advantage of darkness and range to constantly deal damage to marines on the edge of your vision.
  • 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.
  • Remember that your acid does serious, permanent damage. If you continue to attack a downed target or drown them in acid, they will most likely die before your team can impregnate them. Be careful you don't kill hosts you could capture or that your team is trying to capture.

Spitter Evolution and Upgrades

The Spitter can evolve into a Boiler. Upgraded growth levels will increase your plasma stores, ability damage, and ability range.
