We had this Offtopic thing on co part so i make this xneo specific:


1. What is xenocides damage?

2. Whats the range both on Y and x-axis

3. What level is best to xeno (mostly waist level is prefered...)

4.What hp/armor rine you can blow to h##l

    I prefer to xeno on the roof, because afaik buildings block xeno. If you want maximum damage and knockback, hug the ceiling.

    As a rine, try putting a building between you and the skulks and simply crouch behind it when they rush.

    1. i think it was 200 dmg? or was that splash to structures in old versions...maybe 140-150 now?

    4. depending on how close you can kill a rine with 100hp with 0 AP to 10 AP or nearer to those statistics..

    I'm sure there was a NS damage calculator somewhere....now where was it..

    That link doesn't talk about xeno...well one thing I do know.

    Sometimes it does zero damage when exploding too close to a marine.

    200 Damage only if youre standing right on marines head. But can kill vanilla rine quite easily. Lvl 1 armor gets harder though, only if you get a bite or a nice leap in, then yes(it SHOULD kill the marine considering it has 190 HP and xeno does 200 but havent seen one yet). Even lvl 2 can be downed with this (but if he gets med, then i dont think so, unless youre standing right next to him/on his head). Lvl 3 can be downed with focus and xeno. 150+200* while the lvl3 stands at 270HP.


    (*200-0, depends how close you are)

    Also remember that xeno is endgame, and very much a cooperative weapon - try doing xeno rushes to thin out MS so that your heavy hitters can run in unmolested and take out Armslabs, Protos, IPs, etc.

    68 hits to kill a HA with lvl3 armor using parasite. smile-fix.gif

    PS: a lvl3 focus skulk bite on a LA with armor level 1 should be insta-kill. Why isn't it? confused-fix.gif

    If you go into a server with a plugin that lets you see the damage, you'll see why this doesn't work. As a fade you do 80 damage with swipe and you'd expect to do 160 with focus right?

    Well, if you have the plugin, you'll see that focus adds 99% damage at lvl3, not 100% because each level adds 33% (i think). So, you'll see 159.8 damage done.

    At least this is what I remember, I could be wrong.

    I had a look on NS and xeno's damage is 220 and i fint that xeno has very little effect area.

    But still xeno is still fun, especcialy when you get 3-5 marines in 1 go smile-fix.gif

    The damage drops off quickly for xeno, so don't go nuts trying to get up high. Being above the buildings is good, but sometimes the ceiling is way too high to hug it and still do damage. If you're 2-3 armories heights off the ground, then you're good to go.

    The real purpose of xeno is to soften up marines, rather like gas but effective against HA, disorienting, and deals damage all at once. Just because you didn't get a kill doesn't mean you weren't useful. Stripping armor without giving rfk or experiance is a good use for skulks.

    Try sending a xeno skulk or two in before a big rush. The rines will be damaged, and probably try to hump the armory for health or be reloading when you send the fades/onos in.

    The bug where marines will get pushed, but not damaged, when they're protected from a xeno blast (like thru a wall/building) is still around, btw.
