Can you prevent a human victim from becoming a zombie after he/she is attacked by a Chryssalid? I was wondering if I should grenade my dead soldier after he was taken down by a Chryssalid.

Yes you may. If you cause explosive damage in the area that the body is located, it will not rise as a zombie (I've tried this on dead civilians, and would imagine it works the same for members of your squad).

    I'd like to add that there is also nothing wrong with preventative explosives to blow up civilians/weak squad members (and surrounding aliens) to prevent chryssalidization. Dec 19 '12 at 23:54

    I would never blow up squad mates, at least not ones who are still able to pull triggers- I'd let critically wounded ones bleed out (or at the very least, dismiss them when they heal up) but actively reduce my firepower? Thats sheer madness
