Tactical analysis[edit]

Thorn things are slow and therefore it is easy to escape from them if necessary. They attack by firing homing red orbs at the player. These orbs are hard to dodge and deal a lot of damage. Since they are big, it is easy to hit them with most weapons, but it is recommend to use heavy weapons to take them down, as they are quite dangerous.


  • The thorn thing's "humanoid spider" appearance and homing orb attack make it reminiscent of Quake's vore.
  • According to the text screen, thorn things feed on neural fluid.
