Its more likely to be fire and explosions anyway than poison, for quite awhile. Unless we run into Beastmaster Captains.

It's known as the Oppai-Kaiju effect. The islands of Japan generate a sort anti-gravity field, which allows breasts to behave as if in microgravity. It's also what allows Godzilla and friends to become 50 stories tall, and lets ninjas run up the side of a skyscraper.

Probably would be more effective on some advent jerk. :P

Also you're certainly heading in my favored direction for sharpshooter, yay.

     Just replicating the best sharpshooter from my first campaign, he seemed to be useful all the way up to the final mission.  The only real tough choice will be Colonel, I used both choices and want both, we'll see if Kaos gets anything useful from the AWC.

     Edit: btw, how long am I in prison the infirmary?

Its in the post, 19 days. Probably less, considering the AWC will be done before then.

     Ooops, now that I have reread the AAR, I see it there.  Missed it the first time.

     One question about the loot, what does the sidearm holster do?

"Start your turn with an additional action point. Reduce Mobility by 6"
While checknig that, I noticed Laser sight is also a valid option for pistols.

Athing gets the laser sight, because kaos is out for awhile. Pies has a stock. Also I'd apparently already given you the same cpl promotion as the other junkrat last mission athing, so since it was the closest to shredder I gave you heavy ordinance instead for sergeant. (gonna need to actually list ranks at somepoint, i think) Sidearm holster is also usable on grenade launchers, so I don't know who to give it to really. Urist picked up haywire protocol, Jopax got Suppression, Rince Storm got heavy ordinance as well (more grenades!), Sirus got shredder, Kaladin got Blademaster, Caroline has Shadowstep, and Furtukan has Soul Steal.

Heres the now-purple Pies:


That about wraps up the things to do before going back to the geoscape.

As soon as I open the geoscape to finish scanning for those suppies, I'm intercepted by an actual council mission. Damnit, I'd wanted to try out the mec!


Spoiler: Squad Loadout (click to show/hide)


This time, our rescuee is much less interesting, and much more squishy. They're also much closer to the evac point, so I guess that makes up for it. Its also raining, which means the people with hats get to appreciate having brought a hat.


Unlike last time, we spot advent almost immediately, and they're being less nice than before. An Advent Striker, Soldier, Demolitionist, and Gunslinger, all in one group. Gunslingers have a light pistol, Lightning Hands, and Faceoff.


Athing, now you're just showing off with that sort of excellency in grenadiering. Jopax and Storm get follow-up overwatch kills, and thus the gunslinger did not get to show off its pistol skills.


Sectoid Soldier, Advent Soldier, gunslinger, demolitionist. Theres a distinct lack of normal troopers around here...


Urist hits the 62% chance with a little room to spare and grabs us some more goodies (New hacking score: 76(+5)). Kaladin heads up and grenades the sectoid, knocking it down to half-cover and no armor, while Rookie Manikin gets themselves a kill on the gunslinger on their first try.


Athing, instead of getting him into a closer shotgun position, has gotten us into a worse position. Theres another gunslinger, demolitionist, and soldier, along with a normal sectoid in the party now.


And by party, I mean grenade range. ;) Good damage all around but no multikill this time.


Critical Flank by Kaladin brings us one less soldier. Caroline picks off the new gunslinger left on one health, Storm gets some chip damage on a missed sectoid soldier, Jopax gets a flank kill on the normal sectoid, Pies gets a normal kill on the abnormal sectoid, and both xenos drop loot! Furtukan strikes down the demolitionist, leaving a two advent still alive: A soldier on half hp, and a full health demolitionist. The latter advent overwatches, but the soldier tries (and fails) to hit the witchy psiblade.
Sirus manages to evade the overwatch shot to try to get a shot off on him, but misses his shot too. With it clear though, that lets Furtukan pickup one of the loot (elerium core and advent lockbox), and then head for the truck to pickup our VIP.


Athing splatters the demolitionist across the sidewalk with another critical shotgun, and at pretty decent range too: He was behind that car all the enemies were near last turn. Meanwhile, Jopax misses and shouts about flanking the eldar and their strong cover. He's half-right at least, heh. Kaladin gets the kill on the advent soldier with his shotgun, but not with a crit.


I'd forgotten how far away you could hack from with specialists. Pies gets +3 to hacking and just barely squeaks out a bonus for us with the truck opened. (Pies hacking: 58(+5) now)
Next turn, we learn our VIP for today is infact one Dr. Janos Nagy, who makes a mad dash for the evac point as soon as the cutscenes stop. Furtukan follows him, and Caroline picks up the other loot drop (another elerium core & advent lockbox), but the rest of the turn is just reloads and heading for the evac point. The turn after some reinforcements are marked, but they're too late, they won't catch the VIP: He's already evac'd out. So instead, we get ready to beat up some more oppressive xenos and wait for them to arrive, theres plenty of time left to get out.
The resulting pile of overlapping overwatch shots made it very hard for me to tell who actually got what kills, but we wiped the floor with em. :)


The survivor, a normal advent trooper, was given a sharp reward for hiding right in front of the Furtukan!

Spoiler: Mission Results/Awards (click to show/hide)

Spoiler: Loot (click to show/hide)

Promotions: Sgt. Kaladin 'Dervish' Anrizlokum, Lt. Urist (I'm assuming you want field medic?), Cpl. Burnt Pies, Lts. Caroline and Furtukan (interesting choice between sustain or stasis), Sgt. Konstantin 'Cowboy' Sirus.
Rookie Manikin is now a third specialist! Now we've got a backup specialist.

I was thinking of maybe doing another mission today, since that one did not take nearly as long as yesterday's. If anyone wants some stats on their person, let me know and I'll type them out for ya.

Edit: New Furtukan look:

I would like to see the crit percentage of Athing, not really sure if the game counts grenades or not so I'm curious.

I'm curious as to what my Aim is; I seem to be missing every shot so far :P
Could you maybe toss a scope of some sort my way?

I think I'd like to stick to the combat-oriented specialist upgrades, rather than the medic ones, if that's ok.
