Any way to figure out which enemies have grenades?

Postby salilsurendran » Sat Aug 11, 2018 5:49 pm

Hello,
Is there a way to figure out in long war mod as to which enemies have grenades in xcom long war mod. For eg. when you go on covert missions you can clearly see exalt members having a rocket launcher with them. Similarly are there any visual clues as to an enemy carrying a grenade? It is such an important part of my strategy to kill enemies who have explosives first since they can destroy cover thereby leaving you exposed.

Alien grenadiers are: Mutons, Heavy Floaters, Cyberdisks. Regular floaters get grenades after a certain alien research threshold. That's all.

Also: grenades are attached to pawn's belt - visually (you will need to zoom probably to notice them). At least for soldiers and Exalt. Never looked at aliens (e.g. I think there is no belt on floater :D )

Also, pro tip: If you see ANY of these mentioned aliens (Or EXALT Elite soldiers) and you're in their attack range, whatever you do... DON'T get your soldiers together, or else the AI will go straightforward and grenade them. Same with rocket launchers xD
