Aliens: Colonial Marines
Similiar to a Xeno Boiler. The alien has an increased size head and depending on it's Carapace, different alignment of sacks of powerful acid. The weapon on its tail is different from a boiler, instead of being blade like, it is almost like a double bladed axe.
In Aliens: Colonial Marines the Aliens have cranial acid pouches with long range acid spitting capability and are able to attack marines by spitting acid, Xeno Spitters require a charge up of their capability before firing acid blood. In an attack these aliens posses final finishing moves like all Aliens: Colonial Marines Aliens, one of these attacks is similiar with a Xeno Boiler, regurgitating acid on a marine killing him instantly.
In multiplayer you can switch between the different forms of Aliens as you respawn, configuring their attacks and kill moves before the game as well as in game.
