This is really early in the game, and maybe not the strangest thing I've ever seen, but it amused me at least:

Due to a lucky early mission, I got a recharging laser before I could buy even niners, which led to the amusing scene of someone using a laser while others were still using muskets.  I misjudged a shot, and my gal with the laser got a musket ball in the back of the head, she survived and was still conscious, even killed a zombie before fainting, but it emphasized the laser/musket thing.

Landed ship popped up out of nowhere next the the base in the first month - so I took the gal's to raid it.

After 3 turns I descover that its an  Imperial probe - Doom faction mission.

While I'm still useing flintlocks and muskets.

Oww... A Lot.

While attempting to run away evacuate, started to loose gals. The last one got back to the Aircar - and got eaten by the pinky that was hideing inside.

RNG really sucked on that campain, I had just restarted it because Dioxine had just added the Aircar in that version too.

In a recent WareHouse War, I had my gals combing the surrounding village looking for troops.  One G.O. was sniping from a second story window, so we made an approach on the building.  One gal stormed the stairs and swung at him with her stun baton to no effect.  Her backup, our melee specialist in ChainMail with an Auto Axe ran into the building on the floor below.  With her axe, she aimed at the ceiling above her and destroyed the tile and killed the enemy.  Huge moment of glee there!

At the end of my previous campaign, I realized the Cydonia base's access lift was right next to the Solar Governor's chambers, and heavy chainsaws can cut through even plastasteel floors...

My radar actually managed to catch a very small craft flying at an impossible speed (5 million or so?).  One second later, it landed in a city and started a pogrom.

So that's how it's done ;)

In later stages of the game you will learn with the hyper-wave decoder that this thing is a "Comm Wave" and entirely used for purposes like starting a pogrom.

I played a lot of UFO Defense so I try this on Super Human.

A big ass guild ship lands early in the game, I'm like less than 6 months in with 8 girls in a turtle. Best guns I have is the Ol' Carbine which I can't even buy yet. I use land mines don't bring Frag grenades because I have like 6 in total.

First time I meet a Marsec Bodyguard.

Bullets bounce off him like pebbles. Go through heaps of clips and mags and they don't even bleed. I get lucky and someone baby-nukes a large chunk of their army away.

4 Marsec body guards left. My girls are tired. My best girls are in barbarian armour, they are armed with a spear and barbarian axe. WTF will that do to something in fucking Power Suits?

I moonshine up my 2 best girls then start sending everyone else back to the ship. I don't know what my primitive weapons can do...

...A LOT APPARENTLY!!

Spear Woman instantly kills a Marsec Bodyguard from behind. Instantly! WTF?! A humble spear!

Barbarian Axe wielding maniac runs up to another and slices the other MB beside him, 2 HITS AND HE'S DEAD! Something the rest of my gun girls couldn't dent with a dozen hits!

They clean up the rest and even manage to capture one alive!

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Found a base where that UFO landed. Not good. Score going down rapidly.

It's a guild base. 8 girls, some better weapons in the next month.

I form a box trap and just camp for about 6 tuns.

AMG cleans up most of the weak troops. Harpoon with Stun takes out Guild VIPs.

Guild Master walks down the corridor with his golden armour.

Riot Grenade out and I run back into the box. The grenade explodes at his feet, AND HE WALKS INTO THE BOX. He's surrounded by 6 girls now LOLOLOL!

3 girls ply him with moonshine. 12 units of moonshine get force fed into him.

1 girl comes up from behind with a cattle prod - ZAP! He instantly goes down into dream land

Wait, you fed moonshine to a guildmaster to stun them?

I've gotta play with that.

It's probably cheese but yeah, feeding enemies moonshine is guaranteed stun damage.... so....

 ;D ;D ;D ;D ;D 8) 8) 8) 8) 8)

And now that I've researched more potent drugs the sky's the limit. I mean you can use combat drugs to force enemies to go insane and surrender - that's way better than any stun device in my current arsenal. -66 Morale is probably better than any psi attack (I'm referring to UFO Def, I don't have Voo Doo yet in my game)

Downside is that I can't buy or manufacture it yet lol

Considering that leather whips are more combat effective than electric lassos, I'd rather use moonshine and combat drugs to incapacitate my enemies.

Crack does a small amount of health damage but I don't know if I want to use that against... maybe lobstermen? But rope and barbarian axe can 1 shot them most of the time

Ah after finally collecting enough combat drugs to try out my theory I find that it doesn't work  :'( :'(

Combat drugs can only be applied on the guy holding it even though it says "TARGET ENEMY" or "TARGET FRIEND"

Still, the Moonshine tactic works wonders. I've captured another Guild Master and Church Matron with this.


It's kind of weird, you feed your target several bottles of moonshine and they're still standing, but once you shoot with one of your units somewhere else or get reaction shot by another enemy the game recalculates and your target falls asleep.

Now... I'm wondering if you can feed moonshine to tanks and drones.

You can't booze tanks and drones. Those can't be targeted.

Are comm waves used for anything other than starting a pogrom without a terror ship?  Also, what does it look like?  Actually never mind that, it probably just looks like "jammed" and it's not like anything can ever intercept it.
