The King

THE OMEGA. Resting upon your resin throne, you look up in the nightly sky contemplating on the next star you will visit. Breaking your concentration, you have been summoned by a distant hive from planets and stars apart. Amused by the gift they have bestowed upon you, you began the psychic transfer from body to resin, then from resin to mind, then mind to the new planet. Such is the power of resin that xenomorphs have mastered over their environment of evolutionary adaptedness. Going through the psychic webbing of the Hivemind traveling faster than light speed, you can see all the collective memories of xenomorphs, from the early primitive centuries to the expansive space-faring Hive. All your senses are flooded by such sacred psychic information, motivating you to do what is needed: provide victory for the Hive.

Before you can be a king, the hive needs to get 15 xenomorphs (burrowed larva included).



If there is one job that king can handle, it's combative engagement with marines. You play as an opener that xenomorphs can capitalize on so that they can follow up with their own abilities. Fundamentally, you synergize xenomorphs' engagement by:

  • opening opportunities with Screech to push with Nightfall
  • disarming many marines through Shattering Roar
  • snaring marines with your terrifying looks via Petrify
  • confusing that pesty marine with Offguard
  • using mass teleport to get xenomorphs together with Psychic Summon
  • rallying and coordinating the hive for a push
  • making corrosion of reinforced walls to allow for xenomorph maneuverability
  • melting CAS flares and OB beacons
  • Emitting the strong Pheromones in the Hive

Compared to many, if not all, xenomorphs, you have many AOE abilities that permit xenomorphs to wreck havoc upon marines. In fact, when queen screeches, you should be using your abilities right after queen so that the xenomorph can run marines through. Read other xenomorphs' abilities that are AOE, and coordinate with xenomorph castes to fully utilize your and the Hive abilities.

Since you are tanky compared to other xenomorphs, your Petrify can make short work of marines, freezing them in place and allowing xenomorphs to follow up.

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.
  • Pheromone Strength determines how powerful some activities will be, such as pheromones themselves, as well as using abilities that heal.
