I think you're right about the flying suits, now that poppers are starting to become less of a problem (assuming we can shoot straight) the strength of the other armor might be what I need. These one shot kills are tearing me apart.
Back on track, well, sorta...
Luckily cash isn't a problem at the moment, but this certainly continues to make things interesting.
Things are rather grim but at least I have cash, I think as long as I can get some recruits in before I have a base defense I might be alright.
I've been rewatching some of my more successful (and not so much) missions and I think I might finally be learning a thing or two about how to deal with RT. Things typically seem to go well when I can get into a proper position and can defend a spot (from a proper distance), it's when I have to go in searching is when I get annihilated.
Problem is I'm still clueless as to how not to get annihilated when moving in and searching for the remaining ones...
If you can't drum up enough troops, you should still go and investigate but instead take a much more defensive and relaxed approach to the missions to tide you over until you can rebuild your team and/or pack shields.
The shields are going to help you heaps. However, considering your troop loss rate so far, I think you'll need to reorganise your kit so that you can carry two shields in your backpack. Just for the extra security.
Woo! I did something smart without having to hear from you first!
Backpacks loaded with shields, let's put them to the test...
You might want to start using one or two Marsec torso plates again just so that you can have a few guys who can teleport absolutely everywhere.
I was going to ask what you thought of throwing a couple Marsec suits into the mix (when I mentioned that in the video it was directed towards you ). I haven't looked at the defense rating of them versus the disruptor armor but as long as I have shields it doesn't really matter, right?
