Wait a minute aren't you that dude with the cringey flavor text? Also i had a dream about playing xeno and you were there saying prae cena
Yeah i am...."One day he will famous like "spartan"....Now go ahead and call me a baldie" The begining and the end of my flavor text.
Though if that terrible Xeno vision update does not go away you won't be seeing me in game anymore.Even as a marine,because killing blind xenoes won't feel the same as killing the xeno before update.

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
You don't need to be very fast unless you are in the open ground doudging bullets,you can just use cover,if you have weeds.If you really need speed just emit frenzy.If someone is chasing you,Neuro them,or put some stiky if they are really far away.A pretorian in the open ground without target is vulnurable target,but so is The queen and even Сrusher.Use environment to your advantage,that's how you win,and not just as pretorian,even as marine.

I've been maining xeno lately and i think the update is good, no more meta targeting.

I have been too, though not entirely intentionally. I got my roles set so smartgunner high, specialist is med, and if I don't get those spots it will 9/10 times spawn me as xeno. Seeing as smartgunner and specialist are limited roles I've been playing a lot of xeno lately. It's all good xeno is fun and I'm looking forward to seeing what all the fuss is about the update when I get off work.

Too late. It's gone for now.
On topic for the thread: Ravager. I tried crusher a few times but it feels too sluggish and flamethrowers suck. Ravager lets you ignore flames and the hit-and-run playstyle suits me.

Anyways i almost never evolve into a t3 because i usually die, my 2nd favorite xeno caste is probably the crusher. That noise when you charge into people and their sprite turns red and the screams are satisfying.
