[IC] A Report on the Regeneration Bugs.

Recommended Posts

The following file is written in order to discuss the new Control Bug caste of the planet Perxies, named, for now, as the Regeneration Bugs, or Regenerators for short; written by Lt. Aleks Peters.

This new Caste is known primarily for two things. It’s method of ‘Infection’ and its ability to rapidly regenerate destroyed or dead tissue, hence the name.

-Cpt. S. Bently




This is a report as requested by Captain Bently in regards to the new Arachnid Castes, requesting a general file to be referred to the Infantry in regards to what these creatures are and how to kill them.


The following is Classified and should not leave the hands of the 112th Morita Battalion. Leaking this information is punishable by Death.




The creature goes through three stages.


Stage one, Larva form.




Stage two, the ‘Spider’




Stage Three, Infection.




Stage one, the Larva, is a small Parasite, roughly 1-2 millimeters in size. They enter the Human body through the Spiders. The Spider will latch onto a person, biting down on them and regurgitating the Larva into the bloodstream. This is the only way a Host can be infected. Bites from a host have no effect. With out having the Parasite in the body, a person will not mutate.



The most effective way of killing the Parasite is by focusing fire on the Larva and wiping it out with concentrated fire from Moritas. With the size of the creatures a singular well placed Morita round should be more than capable of killing them, however, if they stay dead or are capable of regenerating from a singular cell, we're uncertain as of now. However, there is one issue. These bugs do not attach to one specific location. The Larva tends to, while in its infant stage, move freely around the body in the Bloodstream. This means that the chances of finding and killing the Larva inside of the Hosts' body is near impossible.


However, when the Larva reaches adult form, the Spider, it finds a single spot on the body to latch onto and stays there, due to its size limiting the movement inside the body. This means that they are easier to pinpoint and kill.


However, the Larva does not reach this form until at least 20 hours after initial infection. It is also worth noting that it takes 10 hours for a Host to be fully infected. This means that the likelihood of saving someone who is infected is next to none. FFRL had tried tirelessly to pinpoint and remove the creature through surgery, but it proved hopeless. 


From what we know, there are a few small ways that are effective ways of permanently killing the Infected. 


  1. Complete and total incineration. Flamethrowers are perfect weapons for killing the creature. They heat up and melt the body, also killing the Parasite inside. Incendiary buckshot is somewhat effective if hitting the correct part of the body. However, it is not a completely reliable method. 
  2. High Explosives that are capable of blowing the creature into pieces are effective. While not being a permanent solution, it takes hours for the creatures to fully regenerate limbs, therefore the removal of them is handy at keeping the creatures incapacitated for extended periods of time. Or, if the HE round manages to kill the Larva in the explosion to a point where it cannot regenerate at all.
  3. Corrosive substances such as Acid are effective, eating away at tissue and hopefully consuming and killing the Parasite, though again, if hitting the right spot and killing the Parasite or Spider.
  4. Removal of the Parasite from the body will cause the Host to die. It can not live with out the Parasite keeping it alive, therefore removal equals death. Then, Infantry must focus on the easier to handle task of killing the Parasite on its own. Note, being close to the Parasites is EXTREMELY dangerous and puts Infantry in danger of becoming infected.


Should more methods or information be discovered that the Infantry can use, this file will be updated.
