I think I remember Carlos doing something to his weapons, way back when, but I don't think it made it easier for him...

Hmm let's see......

When I first started playing UFO it was with a load of mates. And we renamed everyone.

Fighting a Muton small scout Maggie Thatcher (yes yes  :D ) spotted an offending Muton.  See was out of TU so it fell upon Will Smith (Yes ID4 has just come out) to do away with the big nasty.  Things didn't go as planned. Will's aim wasn't very good and as Maggie crumpled to the ground having been shot in the back of the HEad by a Heavy Laser her death screams were drowned out by us albsolutely p*ssing ourselves laughing

TFTD also has a wierd experience.  One of us decided to use a cheat at the time...but this cheat couldn't affect Psi talents and when our man got MC'ed and killed the entire squadron with his Gauss Pistol doing 250 explosive dmg taking 1 TU to fire, he understood his folly and we went back to normal....CHEATERS NEVER PROSPER....unless they do it properly.

When I first started playing, my very first ground mission I started carrying corpses and stuff back to the skyranger.
We put our first base in Hawaii.  For a while it was great; we'd lie on the beach all day drinking Tom Collins and admiring polynesian women.  But then the aliens showed up and basically everything went south after that.

hmm...thats not too bad...when i am in a tough situation,especially inside of a base...i'll at least stun the commander and carry his ass back to the lift pad...or in a battle ship,the leader or commander is comming with me even if i must abort...or even if i don't have a reading on that particular alien race or rank...it's a really smart thing to do...

I tried that in TFTD once. The wretched thing was dead on return to base. Worked in UFO though... I'd consider fatal wounds if I hadn't hit it with a stun launcher. Posted Image

Just for fun (and cos I was bored from killing so many snake-men and destroying alien ships), I equipped two of my squad mates with the psi-amps and have everyone else go out and find these aliens.  When I find all of them, I gain control of the aliens and try to put them into one group.  I just let each of them just kill each other, but if I'm really lucky and one of them that has a blaster launcher (hehehe...  See those alien gibs fly!), I just let that one alien fire at the middle and let em' rip!
I've done this before too... And I've also carried around alien corpses in my men's backpacks like someone else mentioned...

But the "nuttiest" thing I do that no one else seems to have mentioned, is mind control any alien as soon as I see them and then get them to drop ALL of their items (inc. grenades from their inventory screen) until I've got a level full of unarmed aliens and then run around HUNTING THEM DOWN one-by-one! :D lol

I consider the alien bunching technique a valid strategy, taking out loby men can require a small amount of ammo so it's much easier to just hit them all with one, big missle.

I don't consider it nutty, just cruel, but on a twist to what pumkinhead mentioned, instead of hunting down all the disarmed aliens, I herd them all to one spot, form a firing line, and then let my slow reaction and low accuracy soldiers shoot away. It's a quick and easy way to raise up reaction fire and shooting accuracy.

I beat the game in one shot. Not 'one shot' as in 'single try', but literally a single bullet that went through space, cut threw two UFO's, and hit the mother brain in Cylonia. By the way, it was a primative handgun bullet.

I am the best.

Took a couple of my unconscious folk and tossed them up on top of a ship along with their toys so they could work from the top down once they came to.  Side note:  make the hole with the blaster launcher *first* before tossing your squaddie up there.  Need dwarves so they can be tossed further.  Hey, it was before flying suits, wottaya want?  Found out that you can't stun your squaddies with the stunsticks though the small launcher does fine.  :angel:

Would throwing your troops around add to their stun count or subtract? Posted Image

Nuttiest thing I ever did was something when I first began to get (please don't kill me for saying this...) bored with the game the first time around.

I decided to liven things up by making the game really weird... I stuck all eight bases within 10 miles of each other.

Now I don't know about you but to me that definitely deserves a :crazy: or a ;) smilie. Oi the things I do when I start to get bored, heh...
