Get Flying Suits ^_^

Although if you REALLY don't want to fight the Chryssalids, you can use XCOMUTIL to change the alien race you're facing to another (say, floaters; for example :naughty: )

Although flying suits and heavy plasma is a more enjoyable solution. If you're looking at using an editor, just edit your saved game to get enough cash to build what you need. Can be funny to start month 2 with 8 bases all decked out...

I never fly on chryssalid missions. It isn't sporting to the poor crabs! At least play fair, or give the chryssalids the ability to get poeple who are flying.

They aren't THAT hard to beat! They just multiply, it's not that bad. I used to get scared everytime I saw one of them, but NOW I LOVE going against them. Everytime I get in a terror mission with them it gives me so much joy! :crying: *sniff*

I love it everytime they turn humans into zombies! :wub: They look mean, but they're just "turning" the humans to have a companion! They're so cute! :wub:

That's rather disturbing.

I find the chryssalids can be a nuisance, but they aren't that big of a deal if you handle the situation carefully. If they have you cornered though, I usually keep a primed grenade on every soldier. That way, if they get impregnated, they'll drop the nade.

"read my mind baby... what you see?"

*slap!*










I dont think female etherals are a good idea :wacko:

Cryssalids are EASY PEASY LEMON SQUEASY!!! If you have Laser rifles.. your good to go, rush into a building with more then 2 people... youneed to mass fire against them, and MAKE SURE THEY ARE DEAD BEFORE THEIR ROUND... or you can kiss your squad goodbye. Even with good reactions... i wouldnt trust my guys to down a charging cryssalid. :wink:

Or use explosives, chryssalids take extra damage from explosives. (For instance, 3 hits with an ac w/he ammo can kill one on superhuman.)

In my mind, aliens are good for one thing, target practice.

Until we use their own weapons against them, all clad in some 'improved alien alloy flying armoured suit' and drop a few BB's on them :naughty:

Build up your Psi ability and use 'em for scouts.
IIRC, 110 TUs for a crab.

Oh yeah, they're great scouts once you MC them, Snakemen bases can ba a LOT easier that way, especially since other Chrysalids will kill the first one before getting to your guys :devillaugh:

So what?? Instead of a chrysalid, you get... TWO CHRYSALIDS!!! :devillaugh:
(Makes more efficient use of grenades that way, besides, I prefer that to one of my guys zombified...)

Chryssalids under mind control won't turn into zombies. They die instantly.

If you mind control a zombie (an astonishing feat, considering zombies don't really get by much on brain these days except as nutrition) let it die while still under the influence of mind control and then wait a turn, the chryssalid that remains under your permanent control can be zombified and then reborn, so to speak. Just remember that every zombification adds a death penalty to your score and you lose morale as if another soldier was killed.

Yeah, they're even nastier now that our soldiers can't develop more than double the TUs than tanks... :LOL:
