Well, that's what xenomorphs do. They DO kill and infect everything.

But they're SMART and don't throw themselves at a proverbial brick wall to die unless they heavily outnumber the opposition. That's why in the movies, you see aliens sneaking around, probing defenses and seeing what's there to harvest.

Yea I see what you mean.

On the topic of smart aliens, do you think it would be out of character for a queen to surrender when the majority of the hive dies? I suppose she wouldn't know if the humans would spare her or not, and probably just die fighting now that i think of it. But MAN I'd love to see WY capture a queen one day!

That would give me a fucking anuerism if I ever saw that
Garth 'Grouch' Pawolski, usually helpful. If nothing else, I generally refuse to die in situations where I most certainly should have.

That seems like it would take way too long to be effective.

I would love to see them do that to a smaller building, if anything then for the situation of "Command, Hydro doesint exist!"
Or "where the fuck is the bar!?" When Marines consult their maps.

How to ensure Marines meta 101
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.
