Mrow? I didn't realize HEAT could be so important...

Is it too late to request HEAT for Giselle instead?

Honestly, it's what is more important to you.

Shredder Ammo leads into the Bullet Wizard build. Basically, you combine Suppression + Danger Zone + Mayhem + Holo Targeting + Shredder Ammo.

Suppression itself always succeeds. If your opponent provokes a reaction shot, then that shot is based on your hit chance, but it's not the important part.
Danger Zone applies Suppression to a group of targets close to each other, instead of just 1 target.
Mayhem deals 2 damage to all Suppressed targets.
Holo Targeting applies a +10 aim bonus to hit all Suppressed targets.
Shredder Ammo causes all Suppressed targets to take more damage.

Thus, the combination of perks allows you to AoE debuff groups of aliens with 100% chance of success. It's a great support build.

Flush and HEAT Ammo are more for dealing damage, which can also be really useful, but it depends on what you want to go for. Support or dealing damage.

Well... I've already taken Flush. So having Heat Ammo and Flushing mechanical things might not be a bad idea.

Yeah, I can give you HEAT.

Officer Training School will be done shortly. Do Rickenbacker and Villiams still want to be our first officers?

Well since it seems to be an inverse relationship Executioner would probably have resulted in the thread springing to life with everyone, even Toady One worshipping the results daily.

Sure.

Sorry about the Hiatus everyone. Haven't forgotten about this, I've just had my free time seriously curtailed this past month with my sister ending up in the hospital. I'm hoping this will start to get back to normal sometime soon, but it could be a few more weeks.
