Exactly. They are no near threat old good Chryss.
They are really like Xenomorph Facehugger and I would love if they would,
turn by turn mutate soldier instead of “insta mindcontrol”.
In old Xcom mind control of alien/soldier was a combo of psi powers, psi weapon
use and bravery stats. Insta control is so “anti X-Com” in a way, no matter the
relatively easy removal.
Its merely a shooting target and introduction of a spawner unit as real enemy.
Would love to see this concept evolving to better.
Even as easy as crawl and spit, jump from certain distance, mutating a limb to a disablity over time
with not so easy removal. And more of their limbs to shoot even when facehugged,not ours on display.
