Meaning of "chrysalid" in the English dictionary
Edonia , Europe. Edonia City Hall. Usually first encountered in small swarms on Terror Site missions, Chryssalids deal heavy damage with melee and have a high chance to inflict poison. When a Chryssalid kills a human a civilian or a soldier , it will implant an embryo in them. This causes the corpse to rise up as a Zombie in the next turn, which will spawn a "Chryssalid Hatchling" after three turns. Hatchlings possess behavior and statistics identical to adult Chryssalids, but have a visually lighter color of chitin armor which changes to the usual purple within a couple turns.
A newborn Chryssalid can move and attack the turn it emerges. As shown in the Site Recon mission from XCOM: Enemy Within , Chryssalids can also use sufficiently large bioforms like whales, bluefin tuna and sharks as incubator hives. According to the Ethereal hive mind , Chryssalids were uplifted by the Ethereals in an effort to search for " the Gift " and they were "little more than insects when their uplift began.

Chryssalids can cover great distances in a single turn, have enough durability to survive multiple hits from everything but the heaviest weapons, and ignore cover when launching attacks. When facing groups of Chryssalids, you may wish to retreat to cleared territory before firing in order to create as much distance between you and the Chryssalid as possible: however, Assault soldiers with the appropriate critical-boosting abilities and a Shotgun or, more preferably, a Scatter Laser can kill one with a single shot at point blank range. Naturally, getting so close to a Chryssalid is potentially fatal, so providing fire support and further augmenting this tactic with the Rapid Fire ability will greatly improve your soldier's odds of survival.
As Chryssalids carry no equipment, you can freely use explosives to kill them without any penalty, and the recovered Chryssalid corpses can be used to craft Chitin Plating , an item that greatly reduces the melee damage dealt by foes like Chryssalids and Berserkers. Overwatch can be very effective against Chryssalids as they never use cover and have to move close to their targets to attack. Assault soldiers with the ability Close Combat Specialist can exploit this rather effectively.
However, Chryssalids occasionally utilize full cover in the environment to conceal their approach from your soldier's line of sight. This can be especially problematic if your soldiers are pinned down by Overwatch or Suppression. Although a Chryssalid's poison is a useful ability, they should be held in reserve and target only humans that will be killed in one attack.
The Chrysalids Glossary
The ability to spawn Zombies is by far the most useful ability of the Chryssalid, and as soon as one is spawned a player should have the Zombie hide until the new Chryssalid's incubation period is completed. Although the Chryssalid can cover a massive distance in one turn by using both actions for moving, doing so defeats the point because it cannot attack afterward.
You must keep the Chryssalid hidden at all costs until an enemy comes within range.
