Summary

The Crawler is the most versatile unit in the game. They are always useful, as well placed crawlers will win you early game and packs of crawlers distract enemies in late game for a long time.

They are a very aggressive unit that do well in flanks. And even back deployed crawlers are so fast they are in time for battle even if you are the one pushing.

Their usual use case is just to take enemy fire and pull key enemy units away from certain positions. But they are dangerous with technologies. You can poke around the enemy defenses a bit with cheap crawlers and if you see an opening you can do 2 technologies for them in a single turn to completely surprise them.

If the enemy farms your crawlers with vulcans or mustangs, you can drop Rhinos in front of them, for example, to take the aggro.
