See the below if you cannot find it. I was similarly surprised when it disappeared and I think it would be a better UI option to either keep *training* a separate button or just have it like that from the beginning.

Yes that is exactly what happened thank you guys so much!

Where can I get a Bewildered Farmer? Is it supposed to be the MiB type mission peasant?

If so, he cannot be captured currently. It doesn't matter if he is stunned or walking at the end of the mission, he doesn't show up as a prisoner.

Crop circles without MiB, I believe.

With MiB, they are civvies, without MiB, they are "hostiles" and can be captured.

Edit: It may be Cattle Mutilations without MiB though. One gives Abducted Farmers. But I am guessing they are the same. There is also a chance of Brainwashed Farmers.

Brinswashed farmers are from the zombie Crop Circles mission. The Abducted Farmers are from the "normal" crop circles and Cattle Mutilation. Bewildered Farmers don't show up. Judging by the name they could be the MiB mission farmers, but these are not recoverable.

The Shambler text is ambiguous:
*Warning: Shamblers respond poorly to explosives.*

It is not clear what "respond poorly" means. Do they respond poorly from their point of view, as in take more damage, because they are poorly equipped to deal with explosives. Or do they respond poorly from X-COM point of view, as in, they don't take a lot of damage from explosives.

Looking at the info it is the former, but it is not clear.

I suggest:
"Explosives fare poorly against Shamblers" - has poorly
"Shamblers are resistant to explosives" - a bit bland
"Shamblers are poorly affected by explosives"

Thanks, good point. I'll go with your "Explosives fare poorly against Shamblers".

Another one, I did write this in the playthrough some time ago, but in case you missed it:

After researching the "Mosin Rifle" you don't get the "Bolt Action Rifle Ammo" that it uses.
After "Mosin Rifle Acquisition" you can buy "Bolt Action Rifle Ammo", but you still don't have access to its page and statistics. Pressing Alt when aiming the Mosin, or in inventory gives ??? instead of damage.

I assume that it will fix itself after I research the "Bolt Action Rifle" itself.
