Re: Finding a codex late game

I usually try to get my Codex hack during a Supply Retaliation. Basically I get one on very low health, kill the extras and try to leave it for last. It's annoying, but since it'll Rift every two rounds, and its aim incredible compared to the T3 stuff you'll be facing, the danger is less extreme. Oh...

Re: Dwarfling's Soldier Build Guide

- Low aim Holobot Scout Sharpshooters: I just don't think they contribute enough to small team infiltrations, which is going to be the majority of the missions, and if deployed as scout can risk the entire mission by bopping into something. - Cutthroat: issue with this skill is that you will most li...

Re: The worst yellow alert activation

I've seen something like that before during Smash & Grab missions, where I activate the first pod with an overwatch and suddenly the other members of the pod get yellow alert actions. Maybe it has something to do with the kill changing the alert of the rest of the pod, I dunno. In your case it's eve...

Re: How to tune down the number of haven infiltration attacks

If you refer to the Rendezvous missions popping very often in the late game and being tedious to complete, I know what you mean. Just ignore the missions, the faceless will be gone when the mission expires. It's probably because you have so many regions and the soldier advisers are on average higher...

You can move the WotC folder somewhere else if you're not gonna use it. That's what I did, 38gb less on my SDD.

Re: The infestation Dark Event....

The honest way, if you have no battlescanners: 1. Try to take missions exclusively at Ex.Light while the DE is active so that you get only one chryssalid. 2. Navigate the first turns very carefully. Chryssalids pop out of the ground every couple turns, letting you at least know the direction where t...

Dwarfling's Soldier Build Guide

This is a guide that describes the builds I use for my soldiers during my campaigns (Legendary Ironman with no mods). I play an aggressive style that relies on cover destruction and activating pods from squadsight after concealment is broken. The reason for this is the LW2 metagame: the vast majorit...

Faceless don't return the supplies they stole upon death, so it might be listing the supplies they stole that month until they died.

I got a rendezvous mission that had 5 faceless. I'm like, really game? The haven only had 6 people in it. My trooper went out with 4 Rebels, so now, I have a haven with 4 rebels. I have no idea how all that works. You had 2 faceless on the region and the mission put 3 on pods. The Rendezvous missio...

Re: Faceless / Liberated Regions

You do get Rendezvous missions on Liberated regions, and they're the easiest of them all since they're at the lowest strenght.

As far as I can tell you can generate faceless from recruitment on Liberated regions.

Re: Mini-retals

Troop Columns, yes. ADVENT isn't moving legions around regions with those. So you can lower the region strenght that way.

Supply Raids, no, those come from outside by land.

Re: Retaliation minimum rebel numbers in haven

Only 2 rebels working per job are safe, but they count combined against Full Retal. I don't remember the specifics of strenght requirements but it's from strenght 3 and upwards, and I think it's strenght 4 for supply retal. The best strategy (IMO) is to hide all rebels but 2 in very high strenght re...

Gets harder as the campaign gets longer as SPARKs have a low aim progression, no weapon mods (no ammo mods hurts them the most) and their multishot skill, although you get it at the start, is on a long cooldown.
