– In-Game Description, XCOM: Enemy Unknown
A close-quarters AoE attack that deals 4 to 6 damage to all units in three tile radius. While rarely used by Cyberdiscs in the base game, the option is weighted slightly more heavily in XCOM: Enemy Within resulting in a higher frequency of use.
Death Blossom is likely to be a reference to a tactic of the same name from the 1984 movie The Last Starfighter.
