Alien Moves (CivBE).png Strength Ranged Strength Ranged Strength Notes

Wolf Beetle

Wolf Beetle 2 10 0 0 Swarm organism that constantly defends alien hives by patrolling around them closely. Carpets landscape in mass swarms when Alien aggression is ignited.

Raptor Bug

Raptor Bug 3 16 0 0 Fastest known land alien species, with greater strength compared to a swarm of Wolf Beetle. Appears only when the aliens feel threatened.

Siege Worm

Siege Worm 1 62 0 0 Migrates between several destinations, destroying any infrastructure or units in the lands they pass through, extremely effective against cities. Does not become actively aggressive or specifically move through or towards human construction until the aliens are particularly pressed.

Drone

Drones 3 10 0 0 Only known Alien unit capable of flight. Has similar abilities to the Wolf Beetle but does not benefit from terrain bonuses.

Manticore

Manticore 1 4 2 10 Chemical spewing "artillery" of the Alien Hive. Commonly found stationed within the hives themselves to attack targets that close in. Appears in greater numbers if Alien aggression is continued after the first Wolf Beetle swarms.

Sea Dragon

Sea Dragon 2 16 0 0 The oceanic relative of the Raptor Bug. Much more voracious in the fact that it regards all naval vessels as possible prey.

Kraken

Kraken 2 56 0 0 Aquatic relative of the Siege Worm, behaves similarly in all fashions. Will form "pods" similar to Earth-based cetaceans, making them deadly to take on even at the highest combat levels.
