- "Details are still classified, but what I do know, it's based on some kind of laser technology. Whatever you do, do not let the lasers get a lock on you."
- ―The Private's commander (from Aliens versus Predator)
Xenoborgs were created by the Weyland-Yutani Corporation in an attempt to make the ultimate weapon to battle Xenomorphs, humans, Yautja and other hostiles; unfortunately, something went wrong with the experimentation and they now are on the rampage, killing anything they come across. A cross between Xenomorph and machine parts, these deadly cybernetic-organics emit continuous, highly destructive laser beams from their laser guns and can lock-on a target with its laser targeting system, which is mounted on their heads.
Likely due to the added weight of so much metal to their regularly lithe forms, they are now slow movers, and while they can easily kill an opponent with even but a simple gaze, they can be killed with relative ease with the use of heavy weaponry. Colonial Marines would prefer the use of SADAR guns, combined with a pulse rifle or smartgun to take out the laser beam itself. The Minigun and the Skeeter Launcher can also be a great help. Predators however use similar tactics with discs and spearguns, respectively.
- If AVP1 was installed on slower computers, Xenoborgs could cause the game to lag.
