    If you are about to do something dangerous, tell the queen to start watching you before you go in so she can heal you when you need it, rather than screaming "QUEEN HEAL!!!" and hoping the player is fast enough.

    Acid spit does do some damage to cades, you can use spit and slashes at the same time to take down cades faster.

    Acid spit also can go over cades. Spit on sentry guns, teslas, and flamer sentries without even getting in range of them.

    If you are a drone or hivelord, always emit recovery pheromones, as you will not usually be on the front line, and other xenos will pull back towards your location for faster healing and cover.

    For queens: Make Warden Praetorians your leaders. They have their own pheromones, so you can have them double up with Warding and Frenzy, for example.

    For queens: Spam Word of the Queen as often as you want. It has no cooldown and makes a loud noise every time, which will make the xenos pay attention to it.

    Base praetorian can use it's ground acid spray and then dash into the acid as it is spreading to extinguish itself.
    I play as Orlando 'Florida' Blackburn, the big fucking space jew from the moon, who has never even been to Florida.

    I also play as the xeno OY-XXX, you will usually see me playing Praetorian and helping carry the hive. Or as queen.

    On LV-624 it's super rare for marines to actually put up more than one or two layers of barricades at the LZ and they're often unmanned.

    Thanks Chi - edited, and good to know! That's a decent change.

    Here is a simple one - have an escape route in mind. Whether attacking the main marine force or harassing the rearline, know where you are going to run when set on fire or injured.

    This is wrong. You can plant on hive weeds at all times now.

    - On LV 624, runners & lurkers HAVE to patrol intel.

    - On LV kill/cap all survivors even the synth.

    - On LV marines can get nuke in 30 minutes after they touch down. Keep this in mind when doing your actions. Especially as Queen.
    To go along with this, a good tip is dont play xenomorph on LV. its garbage.

    My only question is why the fuck are you using the words 'common sense' in direct reference to a gameplay element of this cursed game

    or if you have fire retardant brass balls, it's much easier to heal a xeno than a marine, and if you can get away you've just positively contributed to your side's attrition









    I want off this sad ride, mister grim.

    - As a carrier do not carry eggs on you unless you are shaman or planting them at a node.
    + AKA stop giving marines free containment xenos & defcon when you die and drop a bunch of eggs.
    - As a builder do not lazy nest. This means building pylons and nest and putting caps there instead of taking them back to the hive unless you have pushed the marines considerably back.
    + For example, on prison station -- making a nest in the chapel not even twenty feet from the marines and making the surprised pikachu face when they OB it is bad. Stop being lazy and just walk the cap back or tell a runner too.
    Today's lesson....
