The Rockpox Acid Spitter is the victim of aggressive Rockpox infection to the mandibles and acid glands, turning its already impressive bio-projectiles into a highly infectious Rockpox vector as well. The infection is wreaking havoc on the Glyphid's nerve centers, suppressing its normal pain response and continuously pumping it full of combat pheromones, which results in a far greater threat response than we are used to. With this in mind it's of utmost importance to take these critters out as soon as you spot them - left unchecked they can and will quickly infect your entire team, as well as any other wildlife in the vicinity!
— Miner's Manual Description

Rockpox Spitters is a hostile creature found on Hoxxes during a Lithophage event. Formed from a Glyphid Acid Spitter being infected by a Rockpox Larva, the Rockpox Spitter is the end result of this ghastly mutation. The takeover from the sickness has killed off the Glyphid's central immune system, making them incredibly numb to pain. This numbness to pain makes these Glyphid-transformed Lithophages extremely hard to kill. They are usually found near a Lithophage meteorite during an outbreak and will defend the meteorite to its death in order to protect it.

Combat[]

Rockpox Spitters are much hardier than regular Acid Spitters as expected due to their rock-hard infected carapace. They spit out globules of Lithophage gunk at the player, damaging them and increasing the Lithophage status effect. Otherwise, they behave like normal Acid Spitters. They can be easily identified by their pinkish coloration in contrast to the more drab colors of Rockpox-infected Glyphids.
