The Anthropod is capable of performing all the actions of an equivalent human soldier and can use weapons and equipment. It can feed voraciously, but strangely it does not seem to live very long in our environment, with a life span of only five days. There seems to be no further stage of development beyond this form.

This creature was built for warfare, immensely strong and aggressive. Underneath the thick outer skin a significant digestive system is revealed. There is a well protected brain structure that seems to match human size in terms of its neuron count. The well formed brain is vulnerable to Psionic influence although it is not capable of Psionic attacks. This indicates an important weakness of this species. The tissues recovered from this specimen will contribute to our biological warfare research.  From: Apocalypse Ufopaedia

A blue bipedal humanoid form with large red eyes.

An Anthropod is one of the four alien lifeforms which hatches from a Chrysalis. This is its final-form.
An alien infestation spreading across the city will almost always contain Anthropods. They are very common.



An Anthropod is susceptible to psionics.

Anthropods are the foot soldiers of the alien menace. They are capable of using every weapon and most devices. Their quantity on the batlescape make them a strong threat when armed with powerful weapons but are completely harmless if not armed. They have no grown-in weapons. Anthropods can kneel, jump, and crawl.
When defending any structure in their alien dimension, they are the second most common alien to be found on the battlescape.

An Anthropod has the weakest Psi-Defence of any alien. They are mildly resistant to stun gas, stun grapple and Toxin-A whereas Toxin-B has a more potent effect.

Anthropod research is another step further for understanding all alien lifeforms.
