The Tacorlion is the second alien introduced to the game, nearly simultaneously with the Digger. Tacorlions move slowly, have low HP, but can attack long ranges. They do more damage than a Digger. The elite version of a Tacorlion is colored cyan and is larger in size. Elite or mutated Tacorlions possess increased attack and health, but spawn uncommonly.

  • Tacorlion on Alien Invasion.
  • Tacorlion on Payback.
  • Elite Tacorlion on Alien Invasion.

Battling Tacorlions is generally easy. Tacorlions delay a short while between when they aim and shoot their projectiles. Thus, sidestrafing targets are impossible for Tacorlions facing the player's front to hit. Tacorlions have a maximum range for their attacks. If the player stays out of this range, they cannot attack. In this case, the Tacorlion will slowly move closer to the player until it is in firing range.
