Introduction

The Harvester is an Alien structure that automatically gathers resources for the Alien team while active on a Resource Nozzle.

For more information see Resource Model.

Tactical Summary - Harvester

  • Harvesters like most Alien Structures need Infestation to live and die within 90 seconds when off Infestation, unless healed.
  • One way to prevent Harvesters from dying to de-cysting is to drop a Tunnel entrance next to them and upgrading the Tunnel to Infested.
  • Harvesters don't cost Supply, so consuming them never makes sense unless out of spite to deny the Marines the satisfaction of killing them.
