Exocrine

An Exocrine is a large Tyranid creature bred for long range fire support.

Overview

Little more than a living artillery platform, the Exocrine is controlled by the brain of its Bio-Plasmic Cannon Biomorph, a giant weapon able to unleash a vast ball of plasma, or several focussed streams of fire from its multiple barrels. The Exocrine itself is purely a means of transportation for the bio-plasmic cannon nested into its flesh.[3] Only when the larger beast remains still can the symbiote focus all of its mental resources into targeting and destroying its prey.[4] Because of their ability to deliver powerful long-ranged firepower, Exocrines are perhaps the most feared gun-beast in the Tyranid swarms.[2]
