Rachni Soldiers are common Rachni forms that appear as enemies in the first Mass Effect game. These insectoid creatures move on multi-jointed legs and possess two long, thin tentacles ending in pods that can split into a set of wickedly sharp claws. Soldiers will use these claws in close-range combat and impale enemies with them. When fighting at range, Rachni soldiers will spit globs of acid at foes that can bypass kinetic shields and cause toxic damage to organic enemies. Ideally, cryogenic or high-impact ammo should be used in taking down Rachni. Biotic abilities can also prove to be very useful.
