One of the Tyranids' many bio-constructs, the Foot-Spiker is a creature that burrows down into the floor of a Hive Ship's passages, leaving only a thin snaking tendril on the surface. As soon as an enemy steps on the tendril, the hidden muscular body thrusts its sharp, iron-hard spines up through the victim's feet and pumps toxins into them. A Space Marine's bio-engineered body is able to withstand these toxins, but the damage done by the spines slows down the victim. If anyone other than a Space Marine is attacked by a Foot-Spiker, they die a rapid and painful death as the neuro-toxins course though their bloodstream.[1]
