I dunno, but one would expect people with aeons of experience in conquest and weapons development to have access to a gun that has no hard counter or drawbacks.

Good luck in 'avoiding' direct firefights.
To get the star gods research-topics you have to use some sort of stun-weapons to unlock the ability to research a Star God Coordinator (black hooded one). Small- and shoulder-launcher can't shot in an arc, smokescreen are total garbage against soulsense 8+ and with the current issue of smoke+camo an enemy can become completely stealthed to a point that your soldier can stand next to him and face the tile where the foes is standing and can't see him. Your only indicator that someone is there is the interrupted movement command.

I made a bomber-raid for giggles against academy.

The vessel dropped 2x implosion-bomblauncher parts.
I'll prove this with screenshot once my new home get's internet-connection.

Thx for smoke fix.

After checking the techtree I guess I'll go with grey codex instead of gold.
Golden Hawk can wait.

Thx for the Megapol Pigmen.

Finally a second (easier) way to get synthmuscle mesh without getting your ass handed by mercs and gauss weaponry.
Only 1 mesh for a captured pig sounds totally worth the sickdays coming with the attempts.

Also:
Installing X-Com 2 @ this very moment, have a great time mates :D

Is anyone else haveing problems with the close combat check thing.

When one of my gals with high acuracy and high combat tries to shot any enemy in the back from right next to them, they always miss - even on crappy opponents like the ratmen.

I've tried reloading to reset the RNG - but it still happens 4 times out of 5.

CQC check is [65% of (melee+reaction x.5)]-dodge. With max stats before gear buffs you have 84%-dodge chance to succeed.

Anything with a dodge above ~40 is statistically immune to point blank fire from all but the best gals.

Just read the thread on this.

Quoted from the Designer of this-

Yes, I admit that the default numbers are quite harsh.  I fully intend it to be toned down as it's balanced.

And I also agree - It's currently unbalanced. (Also never seen the enemy affected by it.)

Snip
 (Also never seen the enemy affected by it.)

I can count on one hand the number of times an enemy has moved into a position to do so without being a melee enemy. The AI retreat conditions(x number of enemy currently spotted) is usually met well before 1 square distance unless the player is intentionally provoking the occurrence, like when "stacking a door".

Right now while the CQC check may be a universal rule, the AI is generally prevented from arriving in the situation by superseding conditionals.

This can be used to the player advantage is some situations, mostly dealing with tank style terror units. If you can catch such units that don't have melee skill in a confined space you can pin them with a decent melee gal who can then take all the time they want killing it, cause it can't pass the CQC check. Don't try it with cannon tanks though point blank aoe not fun.

2x2 units are currently exempt from CQB rules. It will probably change soon, though.

Well that should be noted in the bootypedia article whichever way it end up. Rather important exception.

It's a WIP module, the code was not ready at the point of release. But it is now.
