I played XCOM on and off for a few months before, then left it be while I got addicted to Garry's Mod again. Once I got the orange box and beat everything except Portal, I was a little scared to get back into the cocain that is GMod again. So, I went ahead and picked up playing XCOM Apocalypse. I was really disappointed, and got back into UFO Defense. I'm playing on Beginner, mind you, and still have to abort the ocassional night terror site, but it's usually due to Etherals. Now, I'm doing fairly well.
My research progress so far contains Heavy Plasma, Alien Origins, Laser Pistols, UFO Navigation, Power Source, and Construction, and plenty of armor. I also have Elerium, a live floater and ethereal, but no new craft. My first question - how the heck do I get an Avenger? I've been researching aimlessly and forgot what tree I needed to get it (I read it somewhere before and forgot about it) I've also researched some other things but forgot about them.
I also have two bases so far - Base ANGEL and base DEVIL. Save game is "ANGELS & DEVILS"
Anything else that needs researching besides flying suits (Which I'm working on)?
Also, I currently run a squad of 8 on each mission. 6 mount heavy plasmas wearing power suits, and 2 have blaster bomb launchers that just sit inside the skyranger and shoot them out the back of the ramp whenever I need them. Blaster Bomb Launchers are probably the sexiest weapon in any game that I've seen in my lifetime.
Also, I recently fired a blaster bomb off to the side and tried to have it climb to altitude level 4 and have it come back down on an Ethereal's head. Instead, it went off to the side and bounced right back at me and blew me up. Did the Ethereal have anything to do with this or was it just a bug?
