Threat response: Xenomorph evolution and tactics
10 years ago
This idea just occured to me due to a recent revival of the many hours I spend in front of Alien vs Predator: Extinction. There was a level where, while playing as the Alien species, where the queen wanted a stronger alien strain to combat the Preds (thus allowing the option of the Predalien units).
Anyway, the question I want to ask is this: Say for example, a Predator hunting party finds and begins attacking a Alien hive seeking to capture the Queen for their hunting rites. Do Aliens seek out or create stronger strains using the already present strains they possess?
