The Flying Crab is a hostile flying bug that damages the player upon contact.
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]
Flying Crabs are spawned from a Flying Crab Hatcher. Hatchers burst when damaged 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 circle around and sneak from behind. After hitting the engineer, the crab ragdolls on the ground, which 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 around the hatcher.
Loot[edit | edit source]
Flying Crabs themselves drop nothing, but a destroyed hatcher drops a reskinned Alien Carapace.
