I searched for this, but couldn't find anything, which is surprising.

What do you consider the unit that is the best? "Best" is a pretty vague term, so I guess you can pick which way you'd like to answer.

These criteria come to mind:

Which unit is most likely to make cost?

Which unit, if removed, would tank the win-rate of its respective factory the most?

What unit fulfills its role the best? There can be different categories for this. Raider/skirmisher/Artie/Assault etc.

Which unit is the most difficult to answer? This likely ties into efficiency, but I think it's a pretty big deal to have fac specific counters in your units.

Discuss!

The Reaper covers these four criteria pretty well

Those would both be on my list too. (I've no idea what a cudgel is).

Fleas, ravens, venoms, crabes, convicts, reapers, sharp-shooters, and ticks would likely be on there as well.

Edit: Ivory King beat me to the punch on reaper.

catapult makes cost most time (if not left alone). add manual fireing and a cloaker walker to increase efficientcy, add more catapults to 1-shot anything but bantha/det).

well this is very hard for any unit, which is a supporter. how do you measure aspis, placeholder, tick, empmissle, quake, djinn, eraser, ...)

###

aside this. definign the "best" unit is like having a unit which is most allround and therefore OP. such units are identified fast as they dominate gameplay for 2 days. immediate administartive actions are taken and the unit nerfed (sometimes into oblivion).
the best unit mix for a certain situation is, what dare to call, "best". the ability to create this unit mix on demand from scratch. this requires intel, ressources and buildpower.

Reaper Raven Rocko.

Treating Raven as a unit can be a bit misleading though.

Nuke silo is most likely to make the most cost. Roach too if used well.

Any raider would tank the win rate of its factory, since raiders are essential to the start of the game.

If you want the real answer though: Constructor. Constructor is the best unit and the best con is... hrrm... Convict? Cloak con?

Best in role is hard. Scorcher, Rocko, Reaper and... Mace? Dunno about best riot.

Too bad I almost never make them, would have been fun to find out a naked Felon could delete a Reaper 1v1 without issues. Now imagine what it could do to other units...

We need a widget which will turn off anni and ddm when there is no enemies.
Also, pylons doesn't survive event one nuke.

Inefficient. Popping up takes time for these; much more than the 500ms of Gauss unpack.

Well actually, if there's no enemies in attack range and radars don't spot any enemies slightly outside that range either, then that just makes Anni more Skuttle-proof. Unless enemies are cloaking units that would be nice targets for your anni.

Make a widget that bunkers up your turrets when a spec says SHINY. They always do that a few seconds before a nuke launch.
