Yeah but judging by Christie's face, it's diluted by comparison to the actual blood.

I wonder if the Aliens are capable of controlling the level/severity of what they're doing with acid. The facehugger knows how far to go to get through that helmet and not injure the host. The Warrior in Resurrection knew how much to use to disable, but not kill, Christie, so he was still a viable host.

Too bad Murphy got sliced. He would've been a better example

It's thick but it's not endless. Small amount of facehugger's blood from Alien was able to melt through a couple decks and I would imagine these to be pretty thick too

That's a bit different, it could be at that for days with the thickness of it.

Or why Runner couldn't melt that big ass door in AC

Even though it retroactively presents some logical issues I do agrre with Corporal. It's extremely usefulc ability and ever Xeno should be able to do it. And it can't be restricted to DNA reflex. Let's take Runner from Alien 3 - it was born from dog/ox - neither of these animals are able to spit out their blood or any other kind of liquid for attack as far as I remember

Makes me wonder why no Alien spat on the glass in Resurrection.

It shows up in some of the side scrollers.

And yet it's curious I can't recall a single piece of material showing them doing it other than Resurrection itself. Sure you have AVP Extinction but that again restricts it to a particular caste. Like ACM.

I do understand that no "normal" human borns have demonstrated the ability. I just think it's too useful, and they should have it, without the need for the dna reflex.

We see a human born Alien do it in Resurrection.
