Most weapons should work - as long as you can sling enough firepower their way and that you've trained up one or two serious gun-nuts who've put all their training and experience to better their weapon's primary stat.
Standard rifles and sniper rifles generally work well. However you might want to upgrade your AK47's to something better though. Keep researching the rifles to improve them, as the best rifle in the game is a great all-rounder weapon that anyone can use effectively with minimal effort. For highly specialised weapons that can really tear wargots to shreds, android rangers with two sub-machineguns or a fully fledged machinegunner are excellent choices.
If you've got any, attach whatever mods you've got onto your weapons to get the best out of them. A few encounters with the cult often produces a number of the more useful basic mods, so you should have picked up a few by the time you meet the Wargots for the first time.
The explosives you're encountering are just a type of launched projectile that the wargots have. Very damaging at first, but you can manage them by increasing your armour (for androids, get the torso upgrade and limbs matching the android's combat profession of choice) and get out of the way if you spot the projectile being fired. There's not too much you can do about the psionics though, except to keep them well away from the front-line action
Just persevere. The wargot's aren't invincible.
Tip: If you're on a two-parter, and are up against heavy opposition, you can try skipping the first part and heading straight for the target location and going to the next area. Though you do lose the equipment you may have captured in the first part, the mission will be shorter and your soldiers should be in better condition at the start of the second part. Skipping the first part of a two-parter bunker-type mission gets much easier later on once you stop using the Laputa's drop-pod. You literally start on the exit area.
