Tyranid Spinefist[3]

A Spinefist is a Tyranid Bio-weapon of a symbiotic living gun, typically carried in pairs, which connects its own air-bladder to the airways of its host via a long tube-like tail that burrows through the host's limb into their torso. A spinefist's lethally poisonous spines are coated with neuro-toxins which assault the nervous system of its victims, and are fired by a sharp exhalation of the host. Thus, a larger and more powerful host can exhale more spines in each salvo, ripping through the flesh of any caught victims.[1][2]
