This is the same. You don't "need" space suits, becouse crew without spaceworthy suit gets space rescue pod with build in weapon and medkit. However without space suit your gals will die, becouse enemies there see further than rescue pod, and built in weapon have very short range.
It's fairly easy mission, even two veteran gals could do it by hiding in old satellites and shoting aimed shots. Don't forget that you can't bring normal firearms into space, only melee weapons and lasers, propably plasma.

Just a quick question: What research is required to purchase Assault Rifles? I've researched the rifle, obviously, but I don't know what contact I need to be able to purchase them and their ammunition.

Heya all ! I'm new here, and discovering this amazing mod. I'm on my first game and I was wondering : is there a problem with the "Dr.X hideout" discovery ? I got the message saying that I should know where to find it (after the esper interrogation) although I'd need to somehow infiltrate the base, passing for "weak" Uber Mutant lol. Since then, no more signs of said base, is that normal ?

Edit : alright, an X-Prison mission just unlocked. I think that's what I was waiting for so forget that ! Let's go gals !

99% it's military supplies, prize from Zaxx. 1% it's Zaxx's favor -> Contact: Authorized dealers.

With dedicated research, you’ll be able to manufacture far batter guns before you accumulate enough zaxx tokens.

I think that assault rifles are used for making the said better guns and ran into same problem of finding components. I think it is 2 assault + 1 sniper to make a kustom sniping gun, which is a beast.

Consider the humble smartrifle instead of fancy gun like custom snipin’ gun. Faster aimed shot, better autofire for short range engagements, usefull even for mediocre markswomen and it only needs 3 units of plastasteel and one slave AI to make.

Humble smartrifle, along with equally humble death blossom SMG, with a bit of melee capacity and some panzerfausts can carry you through most of the engagements the game throws at you, from runabout landigs to assaults on heavy freighters. Fancier guns are overkill most of the time.

For Siberian base mission, to get all the rewards, do I actually need to win it or just grabbing the Russian files and leaving will be fine? Doing ironman this time, don't want to miss out on spam lasers.

I remember it being very hard as it was, but now with the weather mechanics it is probably very painful, unless with full squad of power armor.

Random questions: In order to get the Bravery improvement for using medical items, does it have to be a medikit and/or a First Aid kit to do so? I suppose the Grog barrel doesn't count.

Second, are Bravery upgrades always by +10? Can you improve it more than said number in a single mission?

Third, does it takes longer to improve the closer you are to reach max bravery? Sometimes nothing seems to happen no matter how many times I heal stuff with a certain unit.

First aid kit items and bandages grant bravery experience. Alcohol doesn't I believe.

Bravery increases by a maximum of 10 per mission. To guarantee a bravery increase, I think you need 11 bravery experience (i.e. heal 11 fatal wounds per mission).

I haven't played the most recent updates, but general rule of thumb - it has to heal wounds and can't be used on yourself.

The Bootypedia actually states that it has to be some sort of medical device, not alcohol.

Does anyone know where you can find master-crafted weapon parts?  I'm entering the third year and have done a pretty wide variety of missions, but I've yet to find any.
