Introduction

The Shade is an Alien advanced structure that will passively cloak players and structures until they enter combat, become damaged or a hostile marine touch them. When the Aliens have the Shade hive, the Shade gains a second ability called Ink that the commander can use to surround the Shade in a shroud of Ink making it harder for Marines and rendering scans and ARCs useless.
