Give the aliens a fighting chance, then it'll be a whole lot more fun to slaughter them.

and then it becomes a bit unbalanced when you blast the entire map with it and you have no mechanical units left, so maybe the bleed could do some damage to flesh(to stop usage at point blank if this is ever implemented)

The anti-logarithm of the logarithm of X plus the logarithm of Y equals X times Y, or 10^(logX + logY) = XY

Enter EJP. The J stands for 'jelly'. Just let your imagination take over for a second.
I know, I know, it sounds silly, but basically the idea is to have an odd goop-like substance that is highly conductive to electricity. Little metal spheres in the goop provide an electromagnetic pulse every so often (once a turn) for a limited duration.
The goop is fired in little canisters that explode on contact (grenades or rpgs, for example) or is secreted onto it target or is spilled over a small area (as a trap). On humans, it basically electrocutes them to death with additional damage dealt every turn (depends also on any protection they are wearing) until the goop is removed or wears off. On electronic equipment, it deals continuous electrical damage until it fries the circuitry completely.
You could say that this is basically the aliens throwing jellyfish at their enemies. Kind of, but not quite. If you've ever had jellyfish tentacles wrap around your limbs, you'd probably have an idea of what I'm getting at. It's not pleasant at all.
Of course, I guess people would still prefer an instantaneous kill-all-electronic thingy device that produces a wide electromagnetic wave of some sort.

Still, I like the jellyfish thing. Maybe you could say they bypass being affected when we use it on them simply because they're organic. Its one thing to say it'll work on technology, but if some of their technology is organic in nature, maybe that can be the alien's response to our responses in advancement heh.
