Alpha Spitters will regularly make a hissing noise to alert pioneers. They will begin to attack pioneers that come nearby, unless they are in a vehicle.

If a pioneer is within melee range of the Spitter, it will shoot a defensive fireball with large knockback. The closer the distance, the higher the damage. Otherwise, it will do one of the two ranged attacks (see table above). All attacks deal area damage.


  • The large fireball shot by the Alpha Spitters can be destroyed with melee and ranged weapons.
    • It is also possible to attach a Nobelisk to the fireball, which will explode when the fireball hits something.

The attack strength (need vrify), health, speed, attack types and size do not vary from the spitter variant since it's still the same old spitter. Only the spitter and fireball looks have been changed.
