There are noticeably fewer skins for the Aliens than the other two factions, with only 5 included in the game (plus an extra skin for those who pre-ordered). This is compared to 7 for each of the other factions (plus another pre-order bonus skin for each).
Several of the Xenomorph skins are based on designs from the movies — the standard Warrior is based on the original Warrior design in Aliens, the "Warrior Dome" variant is based on the creatures in Alien and Alien vs. Predator, the "Warrior Ridged" variant is based on the Warrior design in Aliens vs. Predator: Requiem and Nethead is based on Grid from Alien vs. Predator.

- There were rumors that the Abomination would be added as a DLC skin, although this ultimately proved not to be the case.
- Many have criticized the fact that there are no female marine skins (e.g. Corporal Tequila). Some have also criticized that there are no combat android skins for the Marines.
- The Claw skin is used in the game's single player campaigns for the members of the Young Blood Pack.
- Apparently the chosen skin can influence the player's voice/vocalizations. For example, a Praetorian skin has, reportedly, a "roaring" sound rather than the regular Xenomorph hissing.
