The following page is currently in the process of being created, is undergoing a major structural rework and/or is being moved.
The reason for this is: "Need paragraphs on gameplay; not many players play hivemind"

Quote: "From the moment I understood the weakness of my flesh, it disgusted me. I craved the elusiveness and certainty of psychic energy. I aspired to the purity of the Infinite Resin. Your kind cling to your flesh, as if it will not decay and fail you. One day the crude biomass that you call a temple will wither, and you will beg my kind to save you. But I am already saved, for the Hivemind is immortal . . . even in death I serve the Queen Mother."

The Hivemind

After the Hive experiemented with psychic potential from the sacrifices of many humans and xenomorphs' lives, they have created a caste like no other, one that have acquired heighten cognitive power to expand the resin world with its mind.

The Hivemind is the only non-corporeal xenomorph that support the hive by building resin buildings, planting weeds, and healing critical/wounded xenomorphs. Barely any marines seen the glowing tower that is the Hivemind's core given that its true body is far from the frontline and behind a fortified and clandestine location.

The Spooky Drone

You are essentially invisible to marines until they find your core. You want to make sure that marines don't destroy your core.

Ensure that before evolving into a hivemind, you as a drone do the following:

  • make resin walls that prevent marines from seeing your glow easily; Hivemind core glows, so don't make it easy for marines to see your glow
  • go deep into caves that is not the frontline
  • ask queen for hive leadership since hivemind cannot get assigned to hive leadership
An example of hiding the hivemind

Ideally, get to mature hivemind before 12:25 so that you are ready to heal xenomorphs when marines open shutters.

To receive xenomorphs' assistance, have a Hivelord build a tunnel and plant acid wells near you. The acid wells will alert them that marines are nearby, and tunnels let xenomorphs quick travel to ward off marines from your core.

The responsibilities of the hivemind are but not exclusive to:

  • Weeding for the hive
  • Relaying hive about marines' locations
  • Notifying hive about marines' flanking and potential xenomorphs flanks
  • Saving critically wounded xenomorphs
  • Blocking off marines' retreat (when hivenind is ancient, though)

The Queen gives up her overwatch role, but not her overwatch ability, to the Hivemind. You protect the hive with information that can be weaponized, quick reflex to heal horizontal xenomorphs, and building walls to block marines' retreat (or accidently your own sisters' retreat).

Maturity Statistics and Evolution Paths

Maturity increases stats as follows.

  • Slash is the melee damage when the xenomorph is in harm intent and slashing marine. In the code, it's melee_damage.
  • Melee, bullet, laser, energy, bomb, bio, rad, fire, and acid are soft armor values, not hard armor, which means that they reduce damage by a percentage rather than a flat value.

Pheromones for their respective castes also grow in strength along with growth levels.
