Hive Strike was the ninth game of the Hive, and was the first and only official full game created for the Aliens: Colonial Marines sector. Hive member chaosshadow18 created the original mode for ACM. Due to its lack of votes and overall gameplay over the years, Hive Strike was often considered the least played or least popular Hive game. As such, the game was decommissioned in Update 10.1 and became Strike mode of Hive Strategics.
