Does anyone use Chaplain or Breacher for anything, anywhere?

I haven't found a place to turn to them, outside of faction events when they are the only infantry possible to use.

    well, breachers seem to be better in ground combat as libs, because they destroy more of my base in gogo bar, but not sure

    Chaplains make quick work of zombies, but tend to take a lot of damage doing it. I've only used Chaplains in last year's zombie onslaught.

    Breachers have quick repair and are pretty durable. They can lose over a third of their health and still be repaired instantly individually. Try charging a decent base with them and they'll lose a lot more than a third of their health, though. They're lucky to even get a shot off in an attack on a base.

    In conclusion, they're really not any good. The one or two uses they do have can be accomplished just the same or better with more versatile units. Both units' ranges are just too low to accomplish much of anything. I guess Kixeye has to put out practically useless units every once in awhile to take the urgency off of upgrading immediately and give time for finishing upgrades on useful units.

    Outside zombie event, those two practically useless, since in this game seems "ranged" unit that really useful. short ranged unit only a waste land unit space and repair time.    

    Unless : (dont have to be all on the list at once)
    1. They give them more HP and more damage resistance MUCH more 
    or / and
    2. They give them much more speed and resistance
    or / and
    3. They give them badass skill or feature, such as spin skill of neil, or maybe an explosion of shock that can disable mechanical and building , etc

    I have found Breachers useful if i and building an attack toon using darkstorm and Jugggs. I will move Juggs with a caretaker forward to shoot and have DS hang back. I usually have a defensive squad to protect DS. If I have less than 100 space left after adding drakkons or sharpshooters, I will toss in a breacher since it does more damage than a spartan or lib and the other unit has to come close to the DS to fire.

    i used them for a while as a bunker unit  if someone got to careless like with a phallix the breachers would reck them another thing they are infantry killers  and they have somewhat cheap space and repairs

    perhaps useful in zombie event,  since its Dragon Breath (Breacher)  and the natural flame damage type (Chaplain) really useful againts zombies. Usually i pair them inside my bunker with Drakon and dont forget the Chaplain Special Training that can make destroyed zombies to explode.... other than that... practically useless.....
