The Starspawn is a common enemy found in The Meteor.

Description[edit | edit source]

The Starspawn are horrendous fungal growths emerging from the flesh of their eldritch host-parent. They are virulent spores of madness and hatred, patiently waiting to have their fleshy shackles torn apart by a stray bullet and to be released from their tormentous prison, allowing them to swim into the waters of their eldritch abyss, and throw themselves at their victims in a mad, violent rage, whose horror only those that encountered these fiends would be able to accurately describe - if only spore-ridden carcases were able to share their tales of madness and despair.

Behavior[edit | edit source]

Once the Starborn sees the Submarine, and will quickly swim towards the vessel, spawning a Starspawn each time it receives any damage. After being released, the starspawn will quickly swim towards the vessel and deliver weak blows, but at a very fast rate. Although shields can completely negate the damage done by a few of them, greater amounts can easily pierce through it and continuously damage the Hull at an impressive rate.

Tactics[edit | edit source]

Due to the Starborn only releasing the Starspawn when it receives damage, the enemy spawns can be reduced by using weapons that deal high damage per shot or that have an area of effect, such as Torpedoes or the EMP. Otherwise, simply ignoring the threat and running away may be a decent tactic, as the Starspawn are not particularly quick.
