    Most fun Xeno role

    Most fun xeno to play? Disregard strength, survivability or importance of role. I'm just interested what is the most fun you had with the caste. Strains included.

    Larva not included so other xenos can have a fair fight. I asked admins to put this as a multi-choice poll as the other 2 as I messed up and can't delete it.

    Acid Runner.

    It's like playing runner on hardmode, and after surviving like 40 minutes you get awarded by getting an (unreliable) chance at doing some big damage to marines....or dying anticlimaticly

    Seems more like an endorsement of the few players who willingly chose to play healer drones. They are impairing their personal enjoyment for the sake of their team.

    I actually really enjoy playing as a healer drone. With proper situational awareness you can be on top of another xeno as soon as they're injured, basically acting as a reserve health bar for everyone and getting them back in action much quicker, which is vital when the marines are encroaching upon the previously safe resting area. Or, my favorite, going pocket medic with a small group of skirmishers and making their job of harassing the lines behind the fighting a bit less dangerous.

    Rupert 'Spice' Ahmadi - An extraordinarily bellicose young man, even by Marine standards, who's in over his head but is yet to realize it.

    Also that healer drone who is always chasing you.

    Well snap I forgot the healer strain. I have only one beef with that, is the downtime is massive. Especially before the fruit update, you just healed, rested for 1-2 min, rinse repeat. After some time resting felt like an eternity. How ever the gardener is doing the same or better as it can partake in combat with his abilities.

    If you like to heal try out warden prae. Brutal heal, and excellent support caste. Other T3s can constantly push if you keep healing them, one of my favorite ones also.

    Healer drone is bad just because it takes so long to transfer health and you both have to be still.

    Yeah sorry I missed that one. To be frank I hated it. You just heal, rest for 2 mins, heal, rest for 2 mins. Pretty lame. Fruits helps a bits but still. Gardener does everything better and it's fun due to abilities. Also if you like to heal go warden, it's Godtier.
