Are the EuroSyndicate missions fun, or annoying?

The missions have a lot of enemies but are also turn limited.  They also result in large negative scores even if you do well.  You get access to some nice but expensive weapons.  The loot is decent.  There is a later tech that will get you out of the deal, so you won't have to do the missions the rest of the game.

You may want to hold off on researching the deal if you have score or cashflow problems.  If you find mansion missions, supply ship missions and pogroms fun, you should find eurosyndicate missions fun.  If those missions are annoying to you, you might not care for eurosyndicate missions.

Thank you for the advice. Those laser weapons they sell are super expensive. Plus they don't look like a huge upgrade over Asuka rifles.

I guess I will skip them. I don't want more negative score. Pogroms are fun, but the one mansion mission I had was completely different. The map was so convoluted and filled with low level enemies, that could not really kill my gals. It was really tedious to find and kill all the high tier enemies, so the rest can surrender.

You do need some type of lasers eventually, Hard to win in 0-G with only limited melee options. Also damage type diversity, not every foe is best fought with regular bullets.

The eurosyn deal serves as the option of last resort if none of the other avenues of lasers show up. The other early routes either rely on scavenging or digging deep into the bounty rewards.

You still aren't that deprived of laser weapons tho, since you still have smuggler contacts to get yourself some basic but rather useful energy stuff, and you can easily save enough stuff to equip a decently sized team off a single pogrom against guild exterminators/mercs. I also do feel the eurosyndicate deal is more a flavor thing that brings more downsides then upsides, since by that point you'll likely have enough extra loot to compensate.
