I'm currently attacking my second alien base which I discovered but the mind control is kicking my ass
All of my squad has ‘very good’ psy skill but get controlled in one shot.
I have 4 of the large mind control guns . But my sniper guys who are usually controlled are faster and shoot someone before I can get him back. I usually cant kill the mind control alien before at least someone gets shot
Another problem is the mind controlled members vanishes from sight , even though I should be able to see him. Which gives them extra time to bring the pain.
I have the psicover armour which gives 100% protection from exception and paralyse would that help
I am considering having everyone carry a short range weapon , dropping the short range weapon at the start of the mission. Then relying upon the 4 guys with mind control guns and having the other 3 with medic kits to support them .
The part 1 surface section is a horrible place to fight. The 2nd part inner section is fine because I kill the aliens with short range death weapons before they can control me
Another question If take control an alien with who has the mind control gun, can I use him to take over another alien, that would be wierd
last point is there anything special you can do to detect alien bases
