Since I have seen many posts with people saying things like "those babie thingies with 3 testacles", I decided to post a necromorph identification thread.

This should help others communicate with the different "species":

Slasher
The "praying-mantis-looking ones" the basic bum-rush slashing ones.

Super-Slasher
Same as above but dark-skinned and glowing eyes, they have more health and dish-outmore damage.

Leaper
The "scorpion-looking ones, 2 legs and a tail.

Super-Leaper
Same as above but dark-skinned and glowing eyes, they have more health and dish-outmore damage.

Lurker
Those infernal "killer-babies" with 3 tentacles *fun to drop-kick* when they grab you.

Super-Lurker
Same as above but dark-skinned and glowing eyes, they have more health and dish-outmore damage.

Infector
Those "manta-ray-bat" looking thingies, they turn dead bodies into necromorphs.

Guardian
The "wall-huggers", that poop-out little pod necros, and swing tentacles around.

Pods
The little "turds" that Guardians "poop-out" with one tentacle.

Exploder
Those gangrel necromorphs that scream like a guy getting his testacles clawed by a cat, they drag one glowing sac on one arm that is highly volitile and explodes upon shooting.

Preggers
The "fat-pregnant" necromorph that spills out tiny-little-rolly-poly swarms of micro-necros.

Swarmers
Those little "micro-necros" that swarm you in huge groups and get all over your back.

Draggers/ Drag Tentacle
That "beastly-tree-trunk" of a tentacle that grabs you and drags you.

Divider
The tall & lanky necromorph that howls like a whale with gas-cramps, when it gets shot, it splits & divides into 4 to 5 little "spidery-squid-like" necromorphs.

Brute
The huge "gorilla" type necromorph, with armored plates.

Twitcher
The uber-fast "blurry" necromorphs, that you discover on the Valor.

Hunter
If you do not know about this one, I will say no more! *no spoilers* XD

Leviathan
*no spoilers*

Hive Mind
*no spoilers*

I hope I have not missed any & hope this helps identifying necromorphs.

Not to criticize science or anything... but wouldn't it be easier just to call it "the pink one"?

I actually posted with "smart-alec" descriptions, just to add a laugh, so the post would not be so seriously boring, that is jusy my style.

I know I need to do spell-check before I post, lol.
