Trivia[]

  • The NE-α parasite referenced in the description of Eruption is a genetically-engineered parasite created by Umbrella as a work-around for brain damage caused by the T-Virus. When successful, subjects demonstrated human level intelligence, and the parasite could manipulate the host into handling weapons.
  • Eruption is the first Killer perk to feature a quote by a Survivor.
