Industrial investigation missions
« on: October 06, 2019, 05:05:49 am »
Are there any firearms that can be used during them, other than ones taken from dead cultists?

BlackOps spy pistol can be used there.

Any weapon or item marked >Concealable in the ufopaedia should work, not just spypistols. I've smuggled dart pistols into Osiron beach missions in order to take some of them alive, for instance.

You can also take some medical gear, but keep in mind that you won't have much inventory capacity for stuff in general.

Not quite. For beach missions theres "beach equipment", for industrial stuff thereĀ“s "work tools" or so.
Its not directly in ufopedia, but on the "info" thing of each page.
Nail guns (light and heavy) go for industrial stuff. probably small pistols (1x1 size) too.
But spy pistol is pretty much the best already.

It seems, you've skipped all covert missions during your game ;)
Absolutely not all concealable gear could be taken on industrial missions, only that one marked "all labor gear". Among all firearms BO spypistol is the only one that can be taken to the mission. Some junk like UAC stapler too ;D

Hey, not all of them! I'm just cautious and the couple I have done haven't really seemed to be worth the risks so far.

Given the wide array of 'covert' item categories, I can see these getting to be a headache in a hurry though. Hold up whilst I load a helicopter with valid gear for every situation... :P

Basically not. The really important are Beach missions - the sooner you open Osiron, the sooner you gain access to it's missions, which are very profitable (also you can loot there some rare artifacts, which can boost some of research projects). The other way to open Osirion is researching zombie implant. Interrogating Osirion's boss will reveal the whole another line of interesting and profitable missions. The other covert missions could help you to earn some money and secret files with dossiers.
