Global Upgrades:
  • Biomorph - Hive Tyrant Lash Whips and Bonesword. Reduces nearby enemies ability to deal damage in melee. Requires the Perfect Link upgrade to the Hive Spire.

These upgrades may be purchased at the Birthing Sacs and will affect any current or future Hive Tyrants. Their effects do stack.

Weapon Upgrades:

One of these upgrades may be purchased from the unit's menu. This upgrade will only affect the current Hive Tyrant.

Strategy:
  • The Hive Tyrant is flexible and can fill any role in combat.
  • Use to effectively counter enemy commanders, vehicles, buildings, elite infantry, or even relic units.
  • Use the Catalyst activated ability to render one nearby Tyranid unit nearly invulnerable for a short time.
  • Catalyst is great for saving any unit receiving heavy fire, or to protect a spearhead unit - like the Uberfex or Trygon - before sending them into battle.
