    You could look at it this way; any invasion has a plan, no plan survives contact with the enemy.

    Having EMP be stun damage to units that can't be stunned (Robotic types specifically, if there are unstunnable biologicals), and so just dealing damage would be fine for me. Though I'd question...

    How much range does a breaching round have in combat? Honest question, I hardly ever get to pick the brains of a professional. It's somewhat rude even when I do so I try not to indulge.

    I would have thought a shotgun with breaching rounds wouldn't be of that much use in a fight, thus negating its application as a 'weapon' for the purposes of consideration.
