Introduction

The Evolve Menu (default hotkey: B) enables Kharaa players to evolve into higher lifeforms and purchase lifeform upgrades researched by the Alien Commander. Whilst in the Evolve Menu, the player may mouse over/click on various lifeforms and upgrades for tooltip descriptions, each showing the Personal Resources required to evolve. Once selected, click the bottommost button to confirm evolution and the player will briefly become an egg; gestation time varies between lifeforms.

To close the Evolve Menu, click the cross at the top-right corner, click the empty spaces beside the menu or simply use movement keys.

Lifeforms

The Evolve Menu from Skulk's perspective.

Evolutions

Each lifeform is capable of evolving a maximum of 3 specific Evolutions. The number of Evolutions a lifeform can have depends on the number of existing evolution structures (Shell, Veil, and Spur). Lifeforms cannot change their selected evolution when no additional Evolution slots are allowed.
