    It's not hard to survive a shotgun encounter doe, most if not all elder xenos survive a PB nowadays anyways.
    you hit the nail on the head but for the wrong reason. The game used to be balanced around everything you are saying. Xenos were supposed to win 1on1 and marines were not supposed to single handedly take down xenos. They were supposed to have 2 or more firing at the same time. Thats why the game balance is so fucked up now.

    I agree marines should not be able to 1v1 Xenos, but nowadays with Warding, Xeno armor changes, and general nerfs to marine weapons. It is not uncommon for Xenos to survive mag dumps from multiple marines.
    edit: I'd also like to point out this also comes from the drop in the skill of the player base as if I remember correctly the Xeno skill level dropped before the marines did which lead to a period around late 2018 to early 2019 of constant marine wins leading to Marine weapon nerfs.

    Yeah xeno skill level has been dropping for a VERY long time, the constant nerfs being handed out to marines and the absolutely silly buffs for xenos are just making it worse.
