There are no brakes on the Ash fragging train. At this rate, it's only a matter of time before I not only outdamage main DPS characters, but also do it flashily enough to get top plays. After all, why play snipers when you could just blast people with a flak cannon?

Athena does not play fair. Mission is a 2v1, with her "partner" being an insane old guy. Numerous attempts at this mission, yet I kept getting overwhelmed. This attempt, I push out as many Brutes and Archers as post-humanly possible, and rush the old guy, killing him quickly.

According to the Steam boards, Athena can only take one route to your base. This is only true if you consider conventional, ground-based attacks. No, she has a very nasty habit of dropping Drone Swarm orbitals directly on control points; necessitating I build jammers on each one. She also had a nastier habit of sending a bombing runs to specifically kill a particular jammer in the region next to my Nexus - it'd get targeted even if I rebuilt it. AA guns are useless. I still manage to secure 2/3rds of the map, fortify with jammers, and load up the economy base in each region.

I begin pushing towards her Nexus. I had to abort one charge due to the Dreadnought leading the charge suddenly taking massive amounts of damage, then again, then blowing up. I just looked it up, and that is another Substrate orbital ability that specifically snipes Dreadnoughts. Finally get to the second-to-last region before Athena's Nexus, stop to build some factories, and push forward with two large armies lead by 2 Dreadnoughts: a Hyperion and Prometheus. Both armies swamp the massive pile of structures in their way, but when it came time to push the Nexus, both armies just evaporated, leaving the two Dreadnoughts. Dreads are damaged, but the Hyperion has its repair drones ability, keeping both alive. Managed a final breakthrough by sending a strategic bomber on a suicide run, giving vision to the Dreads(and taking a couple guns out before it went down), and allowing them to focus fire on the Nexus.

I got the shotgun by climbing some pipes while being my usual, "must explore every nook and cranny" self. Then I checked online, apparently what I did is recommended as one of the first things to do.

Also fuck corrupt operators. I'd rather fight phantoms and mimics all day

Took a defector mission. Went in with a Quiet Armor-Piercing Concussion Shotgun, a Self-Charging Glitch Trap, and a Self-Charging Swapper. Those last two work well together.

Since I normally use melee weapons(main character has a nice Concussion Hammer), going with ammo-limited firepower made me nervous. Screwed up early on in the mission by teleporting the guy with the Lvl.1 security key outside the ship. Had to swap with the guy carrying the Lvl.2 key through the airlock, waste several more guards, then deal with the keyholder. Tripped an alarm, took out the captain, then accidentally in front of five guards... next to an explosive part. That blasted me out into space as well. Somehow made it back on the ship, fought through numerous rooms of more guards, stole the thing I was stealing. In a bit of stupidity, I decided to needlessly kill another guard by blowing up another explosive room.... which sucked me out into space again. Got picked up by my pod again, and headed home.

Haha yeah the explosive bits were super disorienting for me at first, since they're triggered by (lethal) bullets from both you and the enemy.  There's a little fuse animation but I definitely didn't notice it the first few times, and was very confused.

Since for deep internal breaches you're usually almost instantly landed back into the ship, wondering "Where the hell's my roof?" AKA "What just even?"

Melee weapons are bae, particularly once you realize how powerful throwing is.  It's almost too good, but it is very action-movie and can go wrong.  I rarely used ranged weapons until this update added the ex-OffworldSec bonus, where I use stun shotgunS and an impact hammer and get really upset when I fail to save anybody from their inventive stupidity.

I love this update, just wow.
I did well on yesterday's daily, where glitching makes you pass out for a couple seconds (arguably not the worst side effect :P).  Only bought a keycloner, and only for the final segment.
The key is that when they say "nonlethal weapon required"...  They aren't taking windows into account.  Anyone your pod picks up is mysteriously sedated.  Good trick for armored abduction targets.

Edit:
I captured a VIP without realizing it.  $$$

Mount & Blade Warband

He was, as best as I can tell, the only bachelor with holdings who wasn't a complete and utter asshole.  No town or castle, but at least he had two villages.

He was also, to be fair, respectful.  Not the trite flowery "chivalry" BS, but a moderate level of flattery and respect at my bizarre status.  *acknowledging* said status, with confusion and interest.

Being an outsider with only the one village by my sword, his courtship was sufficient that I knew we could continue as equals.

I know own his holdings - border villages ignored by most.  And that's why they're valuable.  The Sunnate will ebb and fall, but Iqbayl and Fishara will only fall if I drop the ball very intentionally for hours of real time.
The only question is how to gain the title for the city of those villages.  Distant Bariyye.

How did I last own?  A marriage of availability, beard, wine, and fellowship in battle. 
And now I own those villages, with him.

Edit:  Let it be known!  I only had the one village, but I saved him from the Khergit creeps.  And his uncle, on an unrelated occasion, and also two other battle-siblings on other occasions!

I really, really wanted to play as Carbon Concept again.  His partner had personal mission to rescue him, but said partner was dying (presumably of some terminal illness).  I have never tried harder in my life.  The result was... well, see for yourself:

Mistake missions are... aptly named. Contract details showed guards lacking anything more than Glitch Dash, no armor or lethal weapons. Contractors aboard the ship looked simple enough, Defenders and Jammers. Alarm response was light reinforcements. Mission was to assassinate.

Unfortunately, a Defender coming into range just as I was striking screwed up the whole thing, and now more Defenders and Jammers were teleporting in. Nowhere near enough Subverter charges to take them out. Got knocked out, and thrown out the airlock. Came back in... and knocked out. Now the airlock room was getting crowded. Caught a break when I learned that if anyone but the guy tossing you out is standing by the airlock door when you get tossed, they go out too. The first time, it was the Defender who tossed me out, because he got shot(despite the shield) in the back by a turret I subverted. The next time, four normal guards got sucked out. Numbers thinned, I finally pushed through, and was able to kill the target before getting tossed out the airlock again.

I had this terror mission. the aliens were attacking Rio de Janeiro. I sent a full squad of brazilians soldiers to defend their country, and the mission was a complete sucess, my guys hit shots that I've never seen them do it. But eventually one of them got cornered by 3 chryssalids. I gave him as dead already but forgot he had the "Close Combat Specialist" ability. I ended with 3 chryssalids dead and a badass soldier.

I incapacitated Dahl with the stun gun and saved Elazar.

Oh, I spent the entire last 30 minutes sprinting past everyone with lvl3 mobility, no spare ammo for anything but the Q-beam, and 20 health. Considering phantoms do fucking 65 damage with a single hit, I'd say I'm kicking ass.

I've managed to castrate my unimpressive (both stat and trait-wise) son in a first try using "Mutilate Prisoner" option.

Finally did my personal mission! It involved using my self-charging subverter, all of the charges of my rechargeable long-range crashbeam, all of the charges of my stealth shield, and 3 breach grenades. But I rescued my boyfriend.
