    One of the issues with xenomorphs is that as soon as a chestburster kills the player, all equipment they had is lost due to the gibbing process. This makes it even harder to fight xenos as there's generally no equipment left over to fight with.

    What I would recommend is implementing the Colonial Marines Server style of chestbursting. It kills the player, but leaves the dead body.

    Being able to reclaim items would be a large boon to playing against xenos. Depending on the round type, it would even aid antags, so they could reclaim things like the CE's boots, the Captain's laser and the like.

    Would the corpse be clonable?

    as far as my knowledge of how spooky scarys work in this game no, you can only inhabit your most recent body i think

    I'm wondering more for the sake of bringing people back into the round as the human they were and denying them xeno fun.

    Not everyone has to be a xeno. Plus, you don't have to rejoin the round and accept your cloning.

    I'm not against it really, I mean I would head immediately over to genetics and destroy the console very fast and take over the science department.

    There's plenty of ways to play it.

    I'd say yes - since it the chestbursting only selects a random ghost, there is a chance that the player being bursted is not chosen. Being allowed to be cloned still allows the player to remain in the round, more fun for everyone.

    Sounds good to me, like the idea to add a little more depth to xenos making them want to take out a service.

    OOH! Could we HUSK them instead of gib?

    I would like the chest bursting thing as well.

    They should be clonable as well seeing as your brain isn't in your chest and that's what is required for cloning.

    It should still destroy jumpsuit and exosuit, though.

    One time, I was an alien, and then I was cloned from backup and it worked. (The alien character became braindead)

    Would love to have this implemented. Chest-bursting on colonial marines looks cool.
