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
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.
Toggle Bump Attacks
|This ability allows you to toggle bump attacks on and off. If for some reason you want to avoid them, toggle this off. The red arrow means it's on; the green arrow means it's off.||N/A||N/A|
|This ability is used to rest and get up. You will heal only when resting on weeds and will also regenerate plasma faster.||Easy||N/A|
|This ability is executed on dead marines. Every dead marines psyhic drained will give 60 psychic points and 1/8 of a larva.||100||Easy|
|Lets you expel acid from your body onto any structure/object you are able to. Spitter acid is medium strength, stronger than a Sentinel's but still weaker than a Boiler, Praetorian, or Queen's acid.||Easy||75|
|Spit acid at a target or tile up to 7 tiles away. Does permanent burn damage.||Easy||30*|
|Scatter spit discharges a buckshot spread blast of 6x 15 burn damage acid projectiles that leave short duration acid puddles behind.||150||Medium|
|Channel a linear spray of acid across the ground at a target or tile up to 7 tiles away. Knocks down targets it hits and does tick damage to any target that stands in or moves across the acid while it remains on the ground.||Medium||30*|
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.
