2.2.1 Aliens Starting With Human Weapons
« on: November 08, 2008, 03:20:24 am »
I've played through the UFO:AI mod through several versions and this is the first time this has happened. I started a downed ufo mission and to my surprise an Ortnox comes up and almost kills my guy with a flamethrower. I thought maybe it was a skin bug but then another Ortnox tries knifing my soldier and does like 6 damage a pop. Needless to say it was easy to kill them but has anyone else had this happen?

Yes, it does happen, but rarely.

For me it happens all the time while clearing downed harvester ships.  I usually encounter a sniper guy, 1-2 guys with grenade launchers and (unfortunately) a rocket launcher guy. I think it will be nice to keep it in the game: aliens experimenting with human weapons.

P.S. On "very hard" the rocket launcher in the hands of an alien kills nanocomposite armor-clad soldiers with one hit.

I think mine was on a downed harvester as well. Interesting.

Now that I think of it, It does mostly happen on downed Harvester missions.

haha sounds hilarious!


The flamethrower attack is fun, but the alien rushing in with a knife is a bit weird though

but hilarious still :-)

Yeah, I just kept expecting him to nuke me with a plasma blade but he chips away at my health with a knife doing ridiculously low damage. Wish I could have videoed it. A record feature would be nice if the engine could handle it.
