This unfortunate creature dedicates its short life to combat and protection of more vulnerable Alien forms. It has limited intelligence and attacks using its funnel head which projects a mix of deadly micro-organisms up to medium range. Despite its humanoid form it is incapable of using other weapons or equipment. It has no eyes, ears or nose but it can accurately detect the presence of nearby organic life forms. This ability is based on a specialized form of Psionic receptor and makes the creature very dangerous in combat situations.

The alarming appearance of the Spitter reflects the fact that this creature's only purpose is to be used in combat. The funnel head propels a liquid containing micro-organisms which secrete acids and enzymes. The large stomach of the creature generates the deadly vomit and would suggest that it sucks up the remains of any victim with its funnel head. With no discernible brain structure this creature is immune from Psionic attacks.

The Spitter is a support alien that assists other aliens in combat by, as best described by its name, spitting acid at X-COM agents. They resemble pink vein riddled humanoid creatures without heads. As they lack a cranium, they are clearly not capable of psionic manipulation.

On its own, the Spitter is often put on the lower end of the threat scale as it possesses quite a weak constitution and will fall to a few well placed shots from most weaponry. The damage from a single Spitter attack is also not so powerful that it often requires a critical hit to deal any significant damage. However, it is unwise to underestimate the Spitter as they do possess a rapid spit rate and they appear in greater numbers than the more powerful Multiworms. Agents may often find themselves severely inconvenienced by a pack Spitters showering them with spit.
