Praetorian, by far.
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.

What does the Praetorian have going for it?

My favourite caste is Sentinel: neuro-fu is good and you can tank up pretty quickly compared to other castes. I like roundstart-spitter as well but you are vulnerable for a longer period if you mature and I like to latejoin xeno.

Strong acid, tanky armor and high health. I like playing as them because I'm actually able to lead a push and use tactical genius against the Marine.

I enjoy spitter the most. It's fun to harass marines from relative safety, and once you hit ancient you become a wrecking machine.

Hunter. Every other caste feels super clunky to play, and I don't even get a quarter of the kills/ captures than I normally do on hunter

Spitter is great, neuro and corrosive spit, just enough health and good range.
Hunter is a close second though, just because of the ancient level. so good....
I play both marine and xenomorph.

Marine Name: Andrew Bryson
Common Classes: Standard, Smartgunner
Common Castes: Sentinel, Drone (Almost never T3.)
Deaths: 9001

I second manezinho, I can simply capture so many marines even on the active battlefront and harass any meme forts they try to use. While hunter rapage in shadows will never get old.
If you ever wonder when did I really start hating incompetent people read Crab Spider's signature... I was that CMO.

As a hunter i love going in the vents of the main dome on LV, and climbing out vents to lob off the arms of lone marines. It is so fun

Hunter.

I get to kill way too many people, because i use pounce for two things.

1: Pounce on single targets (everyone already does that).

2: Pounce from the darkness INFRONT of the marine, tackle him and maul him as his squad tries to shoot me while i dodge bullets. It's Cool.

I've started to fall in love with the praetorian as of late, sticking with the Queen as a supportive powerhouse feels quite rewarding.

I've seen three and they were all MURDERS ON WHEELS.

I like playing drone if I do. Or hive lord. Except for the huge badonkadonk slowing me down.

Not including our lord and savior, the Ravenger!

I heavily enjoy playing as a Hunter sneaking about, though im far more robust as a Drone.

Pretorian is the best t3.Every hive must have one at least one competent Pretorian In my opinion.Queens who ban Pretorians are....I just ghost.Being both ranged and melee makes the most adaptable t3.And don't get me started on pheromones.P.S. Queens who tell me to spread sticky I secretly hate you.

It depends. I typically like to play an upgraded spitter or a prae. I like spitter for harassing the flanks and helping bring in unwilling hosts. I like using the praes pheromones and spits to support pushes but find the lack of speed and the fact that it's a bullet magnet makes my life expectancy short if I don't play conservatively
