I guess medium ships also carry another tier of troopers. The Ceasan ship also had a cyberdisc thing and this one had reapers Xenonaut’s version of the Chrysalid and they are every bit as painful as the originals. They move fast and not only do they kill with a single hit, but they convert their victims into zombies that also house another reaper. I hate them, I hate them, I hate them.
The most frustrating thing about them is the zombies is that killing them immediately is a net loss. You have just spent a bunch of actions on killing an enemy only to have them be instantly replaced with a fresh undamaged enemy who is even more dangerous. If the reaper spawns in your turn it has a fresh full set of time units to spend killing your hapless soldiers. It would be better to back off and save your ammo until the reaper spawns.
The Ranonauts Project would like to offer it’s heartfelt condolences to the family and friends of the following soldiers:
- Red Nightmare for taking down the alien commander using his shock baton
- Keab42 for staring down the reapers. He killed three of them this mission
