It reminds me of a movie.. I think it was called Anaconda?~Movie Fan
Nienia is a mid-game creature with a relatively huge health pool and speed for players who see it for the first time. They are pretty tanky and can dish out not bad damage. Killing them can be a challenge for mid-game players.
Nienia’s weakness map represents the probability of weak points spawning on various alien body parts. Green color highlights the areas where these points generate less often, whereas, in the places marked red, they appear most frequently. Please note that in no way does it affect the damage dealt unless you attack the weak point directly. So, for example, if you target the body when no weak point is present, you’ll get the same result as if you tried to attack the head.
Nienias are susceptible to many debuffs, but not to a great extent. They are quite formidable hunters who pick their target quickly and rarely back off from a fight.
- Bleed – 7% vulnerability
- Blind – 35% resistance
- Dizzy – 15% vulnerability
- Fear – 73% resistance
- Hatred – 30% vulnerability
- Ignite – 20% vulnerability
- Poison – 10% vulnerability
- Stun – 14% resistance
Resistances affect a weapon’s base debuff multiplier (100%). With no resistance, the chance to apply a debuff is what you see on a weapon’s card. So, for example, if your weapon has a 10% Fear enhancement, each hit with that weapon has 10% (base chance) * (100% – 0%) (base debuff multiplier) = 10% chance to apply the Fear debuff. However, with Nienia’s 73% resistance against the debuff, that number is reduced to only 10% * (100% – 73%) = 2.7% chance. Alternatively, a weapon with a 10% Hatred enhancement would be more effective due to Nienias being vulnerable to that debuff. 10% * (100% + 30%) = 13% chance to affect the enemy.
These facts increase your chance to successfully obtain alien-specific loot:

The name “Nienia” comes from a conglomerate of words “Ne nia” in Esperanto which means “Not ours”. Although Nienia looks very similar to terrestrial snakes, witnesses report having no problem recognizing immediately that this creature comes from another planet, mainly because of its specific rubber skin and the way it moves. An exceptional characteristic of Nienia is its ability to slither completely straight utilizing the movement of scales on the stomach. Thanks to this technique, Nienias can crawl much faster than terrestrial snakes. Interestingly, the creature also has venom fangs, but they act more like bee stingers. After the bite, the tooth remains in the victim’s body along with a small odor sac containing the venom. Nienia can recognize the smell of its fangs left inside the victim and is able to track the prey for many days. Nienias hunt Cotoje and even Niepuszczas, which is somewhat good. A large number of these creatures have the ability to regulate the number of parasitic species from the planet Sinsecta, and therefore they’re considered by some to be a rare, desirable species on Earth. Hoppers try to exterminate Nienias and sometimes they even offer rewards to people for the creature’s eyes, which are hard and similar to gems.
