I find the Ghost Outfit working very good against Tank units. 2 Ghost-Dagger Hits usually take them down.
Is this intended? :)
I play 99.A

Yes, because it deals armour ignoring plasma damage, as opposed to the Wand of Rending's cutting (that it is extremely resistant to).

Fyi plasma type dosen't  inherently ignore armor. Plasma type only does additional armor shred. The ghostdagger itself in this case is what causes the armor penetrating not it's type.

That's not what I meant, though I can see how my statement might be interpreted that way; I was essentially saying that the dagger itself deals plasma damage which ignores armour, not that ignoring armour is an inherent quality of plasma based damage.

Gave mind control a second chance since it saps morale, energy etc... it's not a win button, the effectiveness falloff has been increased (I think) and besides, Jack Sparrow guys have higher VD strength; fair and balanced right?

...Just like Fox News.

Used it on a downed Church Cruiser. The outcome was the great Chryssalid massacre of 2602 (or whatever year it is) whereupon every non-enslaveable crew member was brutally eviscerated by their own pets (at absolutely no risk to any of my Gals) who then proceeded to tear themselves apart for my amusement because it's easier that way.
