Quick Battle, I hope? :)
Sorry, nope. It was a cave mission where this critter appeared with the weapon. I quickly dispatched all of them so I did not check if the gun could actually fire at me. As lore, I figured out it could be related to the Syndicate experiment stuff, so I took a screenshot as a souvenir :)

Sorry, no idea how to reproduce it. Can you give me the exact steps?
I think it was during the equipment screen at the base. I miss-click and got the the avatar change instead of the armor change. I tried to change the avatar and got a CTD. The small AI unit was wearing either a medical or scout drone armor.

Should be roughly as much as Alien Alloys. I'll check.

Very little aqua plastics indeed, after capturing an intact USO.

Confirm that too, only 2 aquaplastics from Intact USO. More aquaplastics (about 30) is captured only from further missions.

I have encountered a Cyberweb Lair mission where the scientist's room was located in a section of the map with zero entrances to it. I'm not exactly sure if the several doors in this type of map that lead to walls are intended to make it more maze-like and the path can be opened with a sniper rifle or dynamite but I still feel that this was an oversight in the design of the map sections. Here's a save file of the occasion.

No save file needed. This due to how map generation works. Using a pickaxe or explosives is the way to go and the mission briefing states that this is intended.

The briefing I get only states that he's hidden in the sewers and that he's guarded by robots. Good to know that it's intended, at least.

I would not say that it is intended but this is engine limitation

It is accepted.

And the description is pretty clear:
Quote
We have found a rogue Cyberweb scientist, who has a hideout deep in the bowels of the city. We should apprehend him and bring him in for interrogation.
As is customary for Cyberweb, he is guarded by a number of robotic units. Beware their powerful energy beams!
Be sure to bring explosives in case we can't find access to the target - these sewers are a nightmare to navigate through.

Huh, is the briefing you get from pressing Ctrl+B in the battlescape a briefer version? I really could not see that last part in mine.
Anyway I've learned my lesson. Thanks for your time and for this great mod.

No, it's the description available from the Geoscape level. After all, giving you this info after you've landed would be too late.

Anyway I've learned my lesson. Thanks for your time and for this great mod.

Thank you for your understanding and have fun playing!

Regarding the older reports:
I found and eliminated the issue with weapons appearing on some underground creatures.
I also experimentally increased the amount of Aqua-Plastics recovered from T'leth ships and structures.
