I just had my first two-part mission, and it seems that you don't get the loot from the first half.
Is that correct?
If so, I may need to change my tactics to maximize profits.
Such as equiping GC-HE and being liberal with the grenades in the first half, then switching to mostly non-explosive weapons in the second to maximize booty.
Also, if the last alien has dropped his weapon and is cowering in a corner, should I have one aquanaught keep a gun trained on him, while everone else goes around picking up everything they can to the point of being overloaded (and tossing some stuff for the guard to hold onto) so that I maximize the loot I get at the end of the next stage?
Once I get to the next stage, the first few rounds I'd throw all that unnecessary junk on the ground.
Do I have to worry about losing the expensive gear left behind in the sub?
