The final, deadliest attack of the Skulk. It is availible to the skulk after the construction of a third hive.


Chemical glands crack open and mix in the center of the Skulk's body, foaming and expanding so rapidly that its body explodes. Though the force of the explosion is itself enough to kill even a heavily armored marine, the Skulk's bones are also specially evolved to splinter into tiny shards. A well placed, well timed xenocide can obliterate an entire squad. The concussive force of the blast makes it twice as effective against marine structures.
