ooh that's nice to know, I always primed a small explosive (Megapol AP grenade) and set it to .25 then dropped it before the thing got on my head

IIRC u can pick them up in the turn based 1 and put em in ur backpack so they don't burst open.

In real time though, they always seemed to open once inside my backpack, or more accurately my leg packs. :(
So thats why I always carry at least 2 megapol AP grenades, in case the little b^stard survives the first one.
I'm only partially inactive. :P I can still be reached at cpl.facehugger@gmail.com, and via PM. Preferably the former.

Strange, I always put the pods in my backpack in realtime, and they NEVER open :huh?:
I do know grenades still explode when activated, but pods never opened...

I second j'ordos. Brainsuckers never open when taken into the backpack or inventory. :sly:
if there's a doubt, WIPE IT OUT...

Stun them by using IN Auto Cannon, so they will be crispy and well done. :flame: :crazy: :beer:

I figured out my problem, it jsut seemed as though they came out of my pack. In actuality, one hatches before I can snag the rest of them, I always thought it was the actual facehugg... I mean brainsucker coming out of my pack, but he sneaks up behind me! Thats what must of happened!

But I really never hd problems with barinsuckers. They jump on your head - true. They inject micronoid's into your throat - true. You soldiers start cussing in some unknown for you language and shot at you - true. Brainsuckers are danger - false. I always got at least 2 soldiers together so if brainsucker even manage to jump on one of em second kills it.
I'm not back. I'm just dropping by.

I always carry megapol ap grenades. When I see that lil orange blob, I grab one, and if it latches on, drop the nade on my guys feet. Actually it doesn't hurt that much...

Hmm... I had another wierd thing while on an alien elevator. The brainsucker tryed jumping on one of my guys, but ended up jumping over him. It looked like he did some somersaults too, so it was pretty funny to watch.

Thirdly: We have a new colonel. His name is Facehugger, he loves aliens, and I want you all to treat him with respect.

OK, I'm so sick of all you people. I know barinsuckers are dumb (they have the word brain in their name yet they themselves have none of it) but all they want is TO GIVE YOU A LITTLE KISS. How bad can that be?

This lovely little cute alien (with shiny beady red little eyes) is trying to give you a "goodnight/loveyou" kiss, and you keep talking about frying it up, eating it for dinner, making it get stuck in elevators, stunning it by crawling on the ground. It's not the smartest alien out there, stop confusing/burning it.

OMG you people probably set fire to house pets too...

U know it all starts with "It's just a brainsucker, it's not intelligent, let me just burn it a little". Then you will go around frying babies all over the place.
Passenger ship terror site, first turn, I open the door of my Triton, there is a Tasoth up on the next floor (his back is facing the screen so I don't know what weapon he has).

One of my guys fire at him, hit, he reaction fires with Thermal Shock Launcher. The whole crew stunned. Mission over.

I usually go smooth with brainsuckers. Because I play turn-based, if my guy is alone, then I drop on myself a stunt grenade (If you don't move, then you're fine.) Once the brainsucker threat is gone, then use a smoke grenade to clear out the stunt gas. If my troops are in pairs or more, then I usually let them shoot it out (it's amazing how some soldiers have absolutely no aim!)

Of course, once you have alien gas... brainsuckers are a breeze... :rock:
