X-Com 2 F***ers
« on: February 18, 2018, 12:18:38 AM »
So I went on a mission last night to take out some data link. I sneaked in, sneaked around so I wasn't noticed, got my troops into position for overwatch knowing the aliens would be alerted and BOOM! I hit the data link and destroyed it.

Sure enough, the enemy came running around and my troops opened up.

However - once I'd cleared the aliens out, this "thing" appeared and was able to teleport wherever it wanted. Even more annoying, once it started taking damage, it split. In the end I had 3 of these damn things teleporting around!

Lost two experienced troops  :'(

I'm going back to a previous save and not calling it cheating on the basis that I didn't know wtf these things were going to do or how to deal with them.  :crazy2:

Do you have the alien hunters DLC?  There is a lot of criticism of it:  http://store.steampowered.com/app/433090/XCOM_2_Alien_Hunters/#app_reviews_hash

I made sure I didn't buy it.

Thanks for the tip. I will stay away from the Alien Hunters DLC.

Xcom 2 is very good, but itís difficulty can be unforgiving and very frustrating. Sometimes the odds just seem unfair.

Yep..the crystal fuckers.

I got so frustrated that I went back to Xenonauts...which I believe is just as good, or better a game.

I have to admire you guys for hanging in there and playing this game.  I gave up after I play XCOM 1 (the one released a few years ago for console and pc)


I just don't have the patience for frustration anymore.
