The Hive Spire is the Tyranid HQ building. It appears at the beginning of the game, along with a ripper swarm, and commonly acts as the source of your first built unit. The Hive Spire continues to be important into the late game, as upgrades to it allows for technological advancement and additional builder units are required to sustain your forces, both of which can only be researched or created at the Hive Spire. Also, it's requisition output can help in the event of you losing many resource point, although several are necessary to reach acceptable resource generation.
