Deaf, Dumb and Blind, it hunts prey using vibrations from the surrounding environment.

The Basal Diploid is an Infestation b.svgInfested enemy encountered in the Cambion Drift, Deimos. It is formed when a Mitosid "dies" and its lower half separates.


Behavior[edit | edit source]

Basal Diploids are fast melee fighters. They possess a charge attack with very short range.

A notable ability of them is their capability to recombine into a Mitosid with either a Feral Diploid or another Basal Diploid.

Notes[edit | edit source]

A Diploid's head is the area where it connects with another Diploid to form a Mitosid. All other areas except the head recieve 50% less damage.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • Diploids are, in a way, capable of changing from one type to another; as Mitosid will always separate into one of each type, but can be formed from two of the same.
