So guys i hava speciall anti reticulan team with 6 4x weps drones, all with gatlings, and it makes a soft reticulan-guts raining over the map. BUT my worst problem is that i must go with atleast one non-AI guy, and he is always getting almost instakill. i have very fast drones but before they get to dat reticulans my humanoid is already dead. Do you know any way to protect from dat annoying  psionic damage? your answers will help me a lot :)

There is an item to cover you from psionics (note - it doesn't make you immune). You can also take the rebel grey I think (unless you didn't kill them or at war with them too) - he will be harder to kill too. If it must be human - best it would be medic with Toughness II so he can stay an heal himself when the HP is only red.

The Gatling drones for expedition is no big secret - I would suggest add 1 turtle as some mission may contain mines. Plus you send turtle as fast as possible so the greys will focus him.

i do send instead of turtle one armored with rockets, to soak dat mines and also be more useful :D you mean that cloak? i need only to get some more mats for it :/ and when i send the grey with advanced armor they kill him even faster than humans in heavy suits...

Come on, Silencer is helping someone with a problem... I'm glad we still have people remembering the mechanics of these games -I've mostly forgotten it all.

No I meant Psi Absorber. Cloak will do nothing against reticulans - it is only effective against Martians and robots.
And like I said - use medic with Toughness II perk.

6xGatling Gun + the heaviest heavy suit you have - works good - also human plasma rifles are nice vs them. You can use a sniper and try aim to their legs which will knock them down.

It works fine for me - just spray and pray. With Gatling you don't have to worry about high acc.

Fully upgraded laser rifles on big shot do as well.  Look at the "mistress" armor.

They have very poor laser resistance.

Then what type of damage plasma do? And I think plasma rifles are more accurate than laser canons.

By the way - this site all now needs is good CSS.

I'd do some css for it if it was popular enough.  But my link to it hasn't even gotten a reply lol.

I believe plasma does laser damage,  and yes they are more accurate than laser rifles.   (Laser cannons can 2 shot them as well, but I was referring to laser rifles fully upgraded on big shot).

If I do anything else with the site, it will probably be to add weapon profiles, and the ability to comment on things.
