Overview[edit | edit source]
Dossier[edit | edit source]
Xiphactinus Velox is a frighteningly fast creature, lurking in the Islands' oceans. Most often appearing in groups, Xiphactinus can quickly overwhelm its' victims. They have been observed to grab smaller prey in their terrifying jaws and thrash wildly to deplete their energy. When subdued, they will proceed to swallow the prey whole, something I have witnessed befall many unfortunate survivors. Beware Xiphactinus that have recently fed, as they will become frenzied from the clouds of bled they've created! For targets too large to be swallowed by its horrific maw, Xiphactinus will briefly grab their target and proceed to tear off a chunk of flesh, causing the target to begin bleeding out. On several occassions, I've noticed Xiphactinus will attack other Ocean species such as Megalodon, and even larger threats such as Mosasaur! Be glad that you're not their only target!
Xiphactinus aren't very sturdy, but in groups they can cause some considerable damage and pretty effortlessly overwhelm an opponent with speed. If not used for combat, Xiphactinus are perfectly suited for quick navigation around the Islands waters as well. I will reiterate, however, the importance of leading a group of Xiph!
Behavior[edit | edit source]
The Xiphactinus speeds around the ocean in packs, viciously devouring anything in sight.
Appearance[edit | edit source]
The Xiphactinus is a large, colorful fish with a long body and many rows of long razor sharp teeth. The Xiphactinus resembles a large barracuda but with a much shorter piranha-like head. The abyssal variant of the Xiphactinus has two lures that emit light, and a bioluminescent patterning.
Color Scheme and Regions[edit | edit source]
This section displays the Xiphactinus's natural colors and regions. For demonstration, the regions below are colored red over an albino Xiphactinus. The colored squares shown underneath each region's description are the colors that the Xiphactinus will randomly spawn with to provide an overall range of its natural color scheme. Hover your cursor over a color to display its name and ID.
This information can be used to alter the Xiphactinus's regions by entering
cheat SetTargetDinoColor <ColorRegion> <ColorID> in the cheat console. For instance,
cheat SetTargetDinoColor 0 6 would color the Xiphactinus's "main body" magenta.
