This lets you send out your best troops more often, making it low-key very powerful. See their comment below for further explanation. Thought I'd try my hand at a tier list for the resistance orders. They're monsters with Banish at Major and then there's an ability at Colonel that lets them fire at another enemy in sight if Banish killed the target. Adv and Sup Auto-loaders. [T] Stay With Me (soldiers are more likely to bleed out than die). In order to shred an enemy’s armor, you simply need to deal explosive damage. H/T to u/MortStrudel for pointing this out. [R] Munitions Experts (experimental ammo projects completed instantly in PG). The idea is to kill/disable the aliens before they get to do anything. By doing so, you will earn a number of things. [S] Quid Pro Quo (Black Market Intel costs reduced by 33%). Some good points here, ty!

Consequently, you should sell to the Black Market sparingly. Not necessary until the AI consistently starts fielding armour in the mid-game, but once it does this is a reliable source of extra damage that scales all the way until the end. Think of these as being like a mimic beacon that can shoot stuff until you need to deploy it, and that'll give you a good sense of its power level. Unless you have very good RNG, you'll eventually face pods where it's difficult to avoid a turn or two of mind control. [T] Art of War (AP from promotion increased 25%). Still, it might situationally be worth switching into if you can spare the slot. Not consistent, which makes it unreliable.

The first one works well on it's own for the weapon and class in question, so it's ideal for the early game when you only have one slot and have not yet unlocked the build's namesake skill. H/T u/dzung_long_vn for pointing this out. [T] Noble Cause (will recovery is 20% faster). [S] Bomb Squad (Exp. However, it might sometimes be a good idea to replace a low tier third mod with any other higher tier mod. I agree Scavenger is the best order to give extra resource.

They’re pretty easy as is though, so perhaps I’m overrating this a bit. [R] Recruiting Centres (New recruits cost only 15 supplies). You'll also notice that I strongly favour orders that give overwhelming boosts to your combat effectiveness on the Tactical layer, as that's where campaigns (especially at higher levels) will face the greatest resistance.

Beyond that, you will need countless components and various crafting supplies to keep all of your gear in tip top shape. This cripples the AI’s offensive capabilities in a major way, and therefore helps to prevent squad wipes. Art of War is VERY BAD, it's not retroactive anymore. [R] Heavy Equipment (Excavation speed is increased by 50%). [R] Ballistics Modelling (weapons research increased 15%). The only other uses I can think of for this are as a comeback mechanism after a major squad wipe in the mid-game, and because it could help you train up a couple of disposable Rangers with Phantom who you can use as specialist troops for Covert Operations that have a chance to get ambushed. I like to acquire talon rounds (ranger), dragon or venom rounds (sharpshooter), and tracer rounds (for my chain shot grenadier), so this is quite comparable to Suit Up. This item has been removed from the community because it violates Steam Community & Content Guidelines. The Exo suit comes with a perfectly good heavy weapon built into it, so spending cores on heavy weapons isn’t something you’ll do until the very late game.

This item will only be visible to you, admins, and anyone marked as a creator. [T] Greater Resolve (lightly wounded soldiers can be sent back into combat). On lower difficulties, that rarely happens, because you face fewer and weaker enemies of weaker types and your soldiers are stronger and have better gear.

Makes lost missions trivially easy (bring a sharpshooter and just shoot everything with their unlimited ammo pistol). This was already a good perk, but getting the bonus legacy weapons makes it completely broken. On the one hand, ambushes can be an opportunity for further XP, and get a lot safer if you recruit a couple of extra rangers to send out on them. Hunter Boyce is a writer, which probably seems pretty obvious with "author" prominently displayed. Feel free to make your demands to him in ALL CAPS.

For instance knowing which resources to spend and which ones to hoard, knowing how to improve your odds against the alien forces and knowing which targets to attack first are all incredibly important lessons to learn.

If you see any sectoids on the battlefield, take them out first. Thanks for typing this up. For example, if you get the Hail of Bullets skill, and plan on using it often, an auto-loader or expanded magazine will offset the 3 ammo cost, while a scope becomes less valuable, since Hail of Bullets is guaranteed to hit.
