As long as you know that they're coming at you and you've got some energy weapon on hand, a stun grapple does nicely, you have a fair chance of taking it down before it does any harm. If it wasn't for the fact that your agents automatically turn to look towards any nearby action, you could actually protect yourself quite well from them by having your agents in a circle and facing all directions to watch for their approach.

Note to self.

Don't hire people who are blind & deaf who can't smell because of a stuffy nose. They won't see the the bomb coming, won't hear the those distinct footsteps of death and last but certainly not least. The smell of your comrades as they lay in a prone position smelling of burnt flesh.

Is it racist to only hire Androids? If so, I'm a racist.

I don't know about androids, but in apocalypse, I only really hire hybrids and androids. At least the hybrids stand a chance against the psionics users, not that they are common at all. Those big tentacled things are a major threat to humans, not a good idea to let those bastard things get a line-of-sight on an unaugmented human, at least not without the mind shields active. Definitely best put down as quickly as possible. If not possible to do so straight away then at least set 'em on fire and give them something else to worry about than turning your troops' minds into mush.

And I don't see how something built, not born, can be termed, as such, a 'race', surely that involves the abilty to procreate in some fashion, even if its by cloning.

Would anyone be interested in me doing an LP of a Superhuman run with Council Funding Only? I've beaten Superhuman before; it's tough but I know the basic traps (early intercepts are playing with fire, make sure to get a dead and live Deep One in January, carry Tazers on every unknown mission until you get Sonics, get Displacers before June and use them as Tentaculat bait). But Council Funding Only is a step beyond anything I've done.

I'd be doing CFO via hacking PURCHASE.DAT to zero sell price for manufacturables and recoverables; manually destroying items or building a billion General Stores is just tedious.
