Chryssalid
Chryssalids are enemies that are encountered in XCOM: Enemy Unknown. Chryssalids are known to be one of the most annoying enemies in XCOM: Enemy Unknown. Chryssalids are first encountered during the first terror site mission, where they are said by Dr. Vahlen that they are "having no clear pattern of behaviour among the other alien species." Chryssalids are a real danger in terror sites among with Floaters. They might have no ranged weapons, but they are very dangerous indeed. They use their claws to kill XCOM soldiers or civillians. Other dangerous things from the Chryssalids are the fact that they have an abnormally high movement and can jump very high. The main dangerous thing of the Chryssalids are that other than their claws poisons enemies and they are immune to poison, they implant a Chryssalid egg to the Chryssalid's recent victim. Because of this, the egg suddenly makes the killed victim a "Zombie". If ignored, the zombies can later bursted out in a violent reaction, and a baby Chryssalid emerges. And after 3 turns, these babies grows to normal Chryssalids. Chryssalids are also known to ambush Sniper XCOM soldiers alike at the first time they are spotted. In the expansion pack, Enemy Within, Chryssalids have another unique trait. They can "see" cloaked soldiers that are hidden with the Mimetic Skin gene mod, but they cannot attack the hidden soldier.
