I'd imagine it's because there are so many things to be done the dev team hasn't gotten around to balancing out something like Pedaliens yet.
But I'm not the dev team so I can't speak for em.

I kinda imagine if we did have em though, they'd be a reward for Xenomorphs managing to infect a fucking Predator. That's kinda hard to do.
They'd prob be a mix of the three caste, Decent melee, powerful acid, and able to plant weeds and secrete resin.
That's how I imagine they'd be, atleast.

There'd also be a matter of making sure a decent or otherwise worthy player gets such a role.
You will never be as bad as the baldie who picked up a tactical shotgun while a hunter was pouncing on top of a CMO for 4 seconds, with his only response being to pace around before being decap'd by said hunter. You are not Brett Kimple, and you never will be. You are not the reason why I regular MP.

Begone heretic, you have not heard the glories of code messiah?

In all seriousness though, predaliens would be a coded item that'd be cool, but probably saw almost no action. You can't nest a pred, and it'd be a pain to watch him for five minuntes. And a preds code of honor demands he goes out with a BANG, not quietly into the night by chest burster. An infected pred is usually deemed to pull a light brigade and go into battle, expecting to die.

Wha Wha wait! I just read about the Predalien and he's a rapist only infects woman and kills the males. Not to mention that he shoves 5 embryos up their throats which is too op imo.

I'm guessing the coders will allow him to infect males too and instead of 5 embryos, he will infect them with only one. But it's still very strong because it means that the Predalien doesn't need huggers.

I guess there'd have to be a large cooldown for the Predalien to infect

It could be a cooldown effect, it could function like AvP extinction where it's just a bruiser, or both.

The fact it's ravages our women and kills anyone who questions it in a brutal manner is even more horrifying. The predalien would also have to be a special objective for preds as it's viewed as an abomination by yautja themselves, who go out of their way kill them without even wanting to be honorable about it. But alas, one can dream.

It would be hard to code and sprite, and it'd only matter during Predator rounds, so it's low on the list.

PS: The Predalien that infected women was growing into a Queen. An actual Warrior Predalien with a Queen is represented in the AvP 2010 game.
AKA:No infections for you.

PPS: Xenos would never start with something as overpowered as a Predalien, which can only be killed by Predators or possibly a lot of really determined Marines.

I want to state here that's almost impossible to see a pred burst. They have a mask that blocks atleast 10 huggers, and when infected, you can't nest him. By the way, they'll always blew up when close to chest burst, to protect the tech and don't give the aliens a killing machine.

If implemented, we won't see a predalien that often

They took Lawrence, dear god Lawrence... They ripped him off the stalk and smeared him in butter, just like Tyler and Jodie. They shipped him off to the popcorn factory...
I wonder what his wife will say.

Day 120: My brother says the VEGANS are protesting for more anti-meat bullshit. They want more of us to die. FUCKING HEATHENS.

Day 153: The ants are eating me from the inside out. They are popping out my kernels and taking them back to the nest. I feel them moving inside me. Julia says the pesticides will end our misery.

Day 300: Sweet Release. I can hear the planes flying over now. They are dropping the gas, it feels so good, sweet release-

I suppose if we wanted pred aliens, they would be event only, kinda like synths are sometimes an event, or something.

Yes, the predator mask blocks a number of huggers, however it is also relatively easy to knock off. I personally have had my mask knocked off in a single hit from a young drone.

And as for blowing up: preds currently can't detonate whilst infected. Enjoy :^)

While infected or stunned?

Anyways, he can just kill himself to prevent a pred alien

Unless there's a dedicated group of tacklespammers constantly surrounding him.

Which there will be, when Predaliens are added. The bonus from having a Predalien is too good for the Xenos to pass up.

Make predaliens hostile towards both aliens and marines, Predalien primary objective is to kill the Queen.

Because it would create a very powerful foe that kills marines and predators as well, same with preds, they can RP to ally againts marines but after they're pushed from the planet the predalien goes off to kill the Queen (And be the new queen)
