A Silacoid, commonly referred to as just simply "blobs" is an enemy in the third person shooter The Bureau: XCOM Declassified. The Silacoid is a black, goo-like enemy that serve the Zudjari much in the same fashion as an attack dog.
|“||Highly mobile, living nano-fluid that consumes its target upon contact. Launches itself at targets.||”|
These blobs of black slime appear to be colonies of nanites, microscopic machines.
Silacoids may be using Sleepwalkers as hosts to gestate. There are instances in game where a Sleepwalker falls to the ground in pain only to have a Silacoid burst from his mouth moments later. Sleepwalkers also secrete a similar black goo that is characteristic of a Silacoid presence.
The simplest means of defeating a Silacoid is to press the melee button assigned by the player. This will heavily damage or kill the attacking Silacoid as well as preserve ammunition for more aggressive forces.
If a Silacoid is encountered while in combat with Outsider forces it is recommended to deal with the blob from a distance using your weapon. Having a bouncing, hostile Flubber harassing you and your Agents will cause problems.
