Hunters are like X-Com's tanks.

Also, be sure to load up on our weight until we start taking TU penalties, no real reason not to unless we're lacking funds for dakka. I can probably carry a second shield and some smoke grenades.

Yeah, I'll take some more medkits.  Maybe a grenade and/or another flashbang. 

Make sure I never use my last medkit unless it's on myself  >_>

Best thing to do if you have extra weight available is to have more grenades. You can never have enough grenades.

Also, good luck with this. I considered LP'ing Xenonauts but it gets to be kind of a grind towards mid-game.

I'm pretty sure everyone's as loaded as they can be without taking any weight penalties. If you mean keep going until a certain level of weight penalty, I'll get right on that.

Noted and hue'd on medkit usage.

Well, hopefully that'll mean plenty of time for everyone to level up.

Haha oh wow, air force too. Then again, that's probably still a lot less depressing than a US 'Nam vet.

Hey, would I be able to send you a soldier from my game? I have a few some people would love to use, and they would give you some decent starting power.

Actually, on second thought, sending you a high powered commander would be kinda game breaking...

If we're already loaded to the point where we're losing TU's, that's enough weight. Particularly for me who's going to need those TUs to uncover aliens for all our snipers.

Swap 1-2 of my regular grenades into smokes though, so I can at least give a bit of cover while exiting the dropship, because if this game is anything like XCOM (And it's a LOT like XCOM), walking into the open results in instant-reaction-fire-induced-plasma-death.

Is there an aim penalty if I start with a smoke grenade in hand?  Probably best to do that anyway.  Have it primed and ready to toss before the pod bay doors open.

I could take some smokes too. They only fit my sneaky fighting style.

Smoke.

Smoke to hide the fire.

Yumi carries smoke.
