The Whip also known as a Razor Whip is a fast-moving Yautja weapon. A segmented handheld bullwhip that wraps around a target, and once pulled taut is capable of cutting it in half. Resistant to Xenomorph acid, due to it possibly being constructed out of a Xenomorph's tail. It was used by Wolf on his mission to wipe out the Xenomorphs overrunning Gunnison, Colorado.

Variants[]

At least three distinct variants of the Razor Whip are known to exist.

Shivcutter[]

The basic variant of the Whip, the Shivcutter Razor Whip was the smallest and least-robust variant of Whip. It was presumably fashioned out of a Drone due to the small barbed tip.

Lifescythe[]

The Lifescythe Razor Whip was a more robust variant of the Whip, it appeared to be fashioned out a different type of Xenomorph to the Shivcutter due to the size and color difference between the two. It was capable of inflicting more damage than the Shivcutter.

Praetorian's Tip[]

The Praetorian's Tip Razor Whip was a variant of the Whip presumably fashioned from the tail of a Praetorian Xenomorph. Because of this, they were tougher, larger, and more lethal than the other variants. Segments of the Whip were dyed in a crimson red. They were also known to inflict corrosive wounds by means of acid, how this is accomplished is unknown.

Behind the Scenes[]

Ian Whyte (the actor who played Wolf in Aliens vs. Predator: Requiem) spent a lot of time training with the Whip and had an on-set instructor. Several Whips were used during the filming of Aliens vs. Predator: Requiem.[1]
