    Default Guinea Pig Ants vs Xenomorphs

    Nods to Arbiter. Same as the thread he posted except instead of humans, it's Xenomorphs.

    Also, standard arena match.

    Assume they can still dig and climb as good as normal.

    Thanks, guys. And, Hiromi, we are assuming the Plot Gods gently warp reality so that the ants can function "normally" at their size as per the wonderful fictional logic we all love so dearly.

    Some issues would be the endurance and durability of the Xenomorphs.

    Do xenomorphs get tired? Or can they keep fighting full on for days, weeks at a time? As to one point, they obviously don't have to worry about getting muscle cramps from lactic acid build-up.

    Their exoskeletons are tough enough to hold them together in the vacuum of space. It takes multiple rounds of futuristic automatic rifle fire to injury and kill them. To what degree can the guinea pig ants injure them?

    I mean the issue is going to be that when/if the Ants manage to injure a Xenomorph, they're just going to get dissolved by acid blood. Not much of a fight, really.

    Great. This is JUST what we needed. Even MORE bugs! :P

    So let us cast arms aside
    And like discard our wrath
    Thou, in faith, will keep us safe
    Whilst we find the path"
