invalid - Heat rounds for your heavies - you have to have that. It's like squad sight with snipers
I picked the other one for both my heavies :(.

Ohh well, it's my first playthrough, this is all a learning experience. Phone Post

KH Johnsen - Sometimes Chryssalids require a tactical withdrawal to set up a few hard hitter with safe shots. It's terrifying if you spring two or three packs at once on a terror mission, and they can wipe out even strong squads if you're not careful. Phone Post
It was a Very Hard Terror Mission I was stuck on for ages. Must have been about 15 of those cunts... But, I did it! :) Phone Post

I can't, he had 6 days left and when I go to mission control I have to take the mission, can't fast forward time and I don't want to wait hours for him to recover. Phone Post

I managed to get through it with only one casualty. The soldier that died was the most expendable of the group so I'm not too bothered.

Goodbye Major. Pieter "Collateral" Peters! You were a loyal soldier, with a stupid name... Phone Post

choadler -  Still cannot beat last room on normal mode. Open door, minf controlled, game over.

Bug in game prevents me from using shiv in last mission. When i select shiv, mission starts, shiv appears as an mostly-black headless person. I can select nd move them, but it freezes the second i do. Very frustrating end to what was an overall great game. Phone Post

Ghost armor is a must IMO. Put it on everyone if you can except for your Psi guy.

Not necessarily for assault because they can run and gun into the room (this is the reason a PSI op is best as an assault person) but before you do that you need to set up your sniper and heavies invisibly. Support guys might have enough movement with extra 3 squares to also get in and attack from outside the room

Send your static shooters in 1st and keep them ghosted and covered and move everyone else in the next round after the heavy has unloaded his scatter missile.

Double tap everyone to death with your sniper.
Run and gun double shots to finish who's left.

You will probably lose someone but you should have enough power to take out the etherals almost instantly.

yes you do.

Can't get ghost without Titan armor. You also need Hyperwave communication.

Cool. All my guys except my sniper have Titan Armour equipped, sniper has archangel.

I'll probably hold off on doing the last mission until I've researched Ghost Armour. Phone Post

Yeah, normal is almost over the top easy after you've played it enough. I meant from Classic to Normal. I can't imagine playing on Impossible other than for a laugh (to murder all my guys lol)

I'm getting past the first few months on impossible now. It never feels easy or as you're in control. Always barely scraping by. Phone Post

Yeah you really need to be disciplined. I posted a youtube link on the last page. That dude pretty much sums up how you need to play. He makes mistakes too though. Phone Post
