The Defender

Defender General Information

The Defender is a combat caste, focused on being the "tank" of any group of tier 1 xenos, and one of the most lethal xenos at tier 1.

As a Defender, you take more hits to kill than any other xeno at tier 1, so don't be afraid to step in and take a bullet for one of your sisters that is bleeding.

It is important for a defender to be able to combo its abilities together efficiently, or your damage and or capture potential will be severely limited.

Playing the Defender

As a Defender, you will be able to harass marines more efficiently than any other tier 1 besides the Sentinel. Work together with a sentinel and or Carrier, and you will be able to capture an inordinate amount of marines for the hive. A Defiler is also a wonderful xeno to work with, due to your ability to knock people down; Knocking marines down in the Defiler's Neurotoxin Gas clouds will render them stun-locked, giving the defiler plenty of time to Defile sting the marines.

Defender tips & tricks

  • Always try to eat bullets for your xeno buddies.
  • If you're just purely tanking for the boiler, hit that FAT fortify.
  • If you're covering other xeno's retreat, HIT THAT FAT CREST BUTTON

Defender evolutions & upgrades

Defenders are born to evolve into Warriors and then eventually Crushers.
Your upgrades add mainly to your armor, and damage, and slightly reduce your cooldowns.
