Hi!

I got this idea, which I don't know it has been discussed before. Anyway, here it is. When aliens drop their weapons, in XCOM1 they didn't do any effort to get a new one (the nearest). I think we should do something about this. So, if anyone loses his weapons (because of the psi attacks or similar) the soon as he gets back in control, he searches for a new one, especially the nearest (if it's safe to get it).

indeed. Its just plain stupid that they cannot pick anything up.

What about human weaponry? Can they pick all types of weapons?

Some people say that dreams are a portal to the subconscious. If that is so, I am a very disturbed person.

yes!!! :D that should do it!!! the aliens as well research human technology. And the human technology can not make exactly the same alien weapons, but only weapons based on that. So that way u get 2 sides with equal strength, but different weapons. Perfect for game balance!!!! AND! as well the possibility to play as aliens as well with research tree and everything!! :D

I agree. Aliens are smart enough to know that they should pick up their guns.

I don't know if they could use human tech, though. The aliens have alot of PSI interaction with their weapons. The human "pont and pull the trigger" thing would be tough to describe to an alien, because they'd be used to having the gun point itself. :rolleyes:

My first order of business: Homeless people make cheap rookies, and are great at opening UFO doors. Heck, they're so cheap, I'm going to replace all personel with them!
Secondly: This organisation takes too much money to run. Weapon shipments will come from Siberia from now on. Costly maintenance is to be cut on all facilities. That includes venting.
Thirdly: We have a new colonel. His name is Facehugger, he loves aliens, and I want you all to treat him with respect.
Lastly: I'll be in my condo on an undisclosed island, if you need me. Good day.

I have seen an blue teletubby in Apoc pick up a Megapol Sniper rifle to shoot at my guys before (I edited the rifle to have better damage). In fact, he discarded his disrupter gun in favour of the human rifle.

I saw one pick up a toxigun. It was really funny. :)

This topic will be *MOVED* soon.

Something should be done as well for when aliens controls humans. I remember in TFTD, when you'd get control of your soldier after a molecular control, the first thing you would notice is that he had dropped his gun, and had grenades in both his hands!

So? it IS perfectly lethal...
I did the same thing with aliens carrying Blaster launchers... use it to find some of his buddies, and watch the silver footbal go and come back in his face....
Muhahahaha!!
