I have taken down Assault ship and went to kill the aliens in it. i brought 4 agents with devastators and 1 with 2 stun guns and 1 mind bender.im trying to catch anthropod with disruption shield cuz i need to research it. the problem is i cant stun him because of his shield, and if i shoot him the shield will dissapear. is there some other way to get it or give me advice how to stun him.

stun gas grenades and toxic guns are your best friends against shields.
Then if you want kills, pick up the shield & whack em good:)

You said you brought a mind bender?
If its on a mutant you should have had no problem using the mind stun. (although I know how much fun taking control is ^^'..)

Although Stun gas is a very preferable way to go, since you dont need to carry the mind bender :D

Well unless your late game the bender is truly useless on a human. x:
Just hire a mutant and give him some megapol armor and a sniper, he'll be a good asset to the team.
Thats my basic setting for mutants :3

The shields blocks the grapple's attacks completely, and your mind stun with the mind bender isn't working because you're not using a mutant. The psi skills for humans are too weak and are only able to do probes.

Stun grenades and toxigun rounds are the easiest way of penetrating the shields safely.
