The Flying Crab is a tiny floating creature that attacks the player.
Stats[edit | edit source]
It takes 2 hits from the Xeno-Zapper to kill, while the Xeno-Basher or the Rifle can kill them in 1 hit. It attacks by circling around behind and ramming the player, dealing 5 damage (half-segment) to player.
Behavior[edit | edit source]
Can sometimes be found in the wild, but usually are spawned from a Flying Crab Hatcher. Hatchers burst on damage or if the engineer gets too close, spawning three Flying Crabs. One of the three would charge towards the engineer in a straight line, while the other 2 would try to sneak from behind. After hitting the engineer, the crab would ragdoll on the ground, after a few seconds it will start flying around again.
If the hatcher is destroyed from distance, the Flying Crabs alternate between moving around and hovering. They stay in the proximity of the hatcher.
Loot[edit | edit source]
Flying Crabs themselves drop nothing, but a destroyed hatcher drops a reskinned Alien Carapace.
