Biological Horror is a creature.

Summary[edit | edit source]

Biological Horror is a creature, more specifically classified as a Burrowing Monstrosity.

Several of their nests surround an Abandoned Building and each one contains multiple Whispering Eggs.

Their Whispering Eggs can also be found around airless worlds, lying around the surface without nests, in fact they are the only creatures that can be encountered on airless worlds.

Warning[edit | edit source]

Destroying a Whispering Egg will drop a valuable Larval Core which if not picked up, will disappear in a few seconds.

At the same time, multiple Biological Horrors spawn, and if killed they will respawn until the player reaches a safe place, like entering a building. After a set amount of time they will retreat.

They can deal large amounts of damage, leap at you and launch you into the air.

As of NEXT 1.60, they received a spitting attack besides their melee one.

Additional information[edit | edit source]

  • The creature cannot be scanned, instead a panel shows up immediately with minimal information (see screenshot below).
  • When taking a mission about killing a certain number of Monstrosities, this creature is classified as one.
