A Cystoid is a small Typhon species that is found only in packs. It is attracted to movement and will explode on impact with any surface. Cystoids build nests. Both the nest and the creature leak radiation, which can be removed with Anti-Rad.

In places where there are many cystoids, nests may also be found. Upon detecting any movement, the dormant cystoids inside will break free, destroying the nest and going after the moving object or creature.

Description[edit | edit source]

Excerpt from Project Axiom Archive[edit | edit source]

  • Observation log #2042-010265
  • Researcher: Louis Sullivan

The outer layer of each Cystoid nest appears to be made of an exceptionally thin layer of the same material that makes up most Typhon. Indeed, the nest appears to be just as fragile as the Cystoids themselves, making it less of a protective structure and more like a living mine. It's possible that the Weaver uses these to mark and even defend its territory from any kind of intruder. Initial scans reveal they are constantly leaking lethal levels of radiation.
