Naked Aliens are hostile Ceph that only appear in Crysis Core level.


Naked Aliens, known in some publications as Ectomorphs, is how the Ceph used to be known in Crysis. That's how the Ceph really look like in their homeworld. They live in an extremely cold zero-gravity environment and are fast, highly maneueverable and skilled at avoiding gunfire. They are the builders of all of their weapons of war, such as Troopers, and pilot several varieties of technobionic Exosuits, like Scouts and Hunters. It is not known whether they are capable of surviving in a heated, high-gravity environment.


The Naked Aliens are first seen in Core, when Nomad enters the Alien structure in the mountain. They fight with Nomad while he tries to find a way out.

A Naked Alien is seen once in Shore Leave, when Psycho investigates The Container it comes out and knocks Psycho unconscious. This also proves that the Alien Scout is a piloted vehicle.

Fighting techniquesEdit

Some of the Aliens are armed with Molecular Accelerators (MOACs), while others simply charge at the player. Their melee attacks look simple, but, if you are not in armor mode, their attacks can be lethal. The player actually can grab them just like the KPA soldiers, though this is more difficult since they are very mobile. Weapons and ammunition are scarce in Core, so the player must be careful not to waste ammo. It's possible to use Cloak to sneak up to them and grab them, but if there are hordes of naked Aliens, outrunning them may be the best option. Suggested weapons are FY71, Shotgun and Submachine Gun, though any automatic weapon will work.

Trivia Edit


Before and after: Naked Alien being shot with a modded Gauss Rifle with the explosive property, leaving nothing behind.

  • When shot with an explosive weapon, Naked Aliens will explode into nothing, rather than becoming dismembered.
  • The Naked Alien has a skeleton model, and is usable.
  • Interestingly, you can grab one of them and put them next to a terminal, it will open up as if to allow them in, but you cannot put them in. It seems to draw an odd energy from them, seemingly to no gameplay purpose.
  • In Crysis: Legion, Alcatraz comments on these creatures, which he saw in one of the visions he had of Prophet's previous adventures. He speculates they might be a "geek caste", not meant for any actual combat.
