Alien Leader?

Recommended Posts

I'm an X-Com vet but I'm having trouble finding an Alien Leader. How do I tell when I've found one? Officers are clearly different, do they just look like Officers but a different colour or something? Do I have to raid a base to find them? I thought I did capture a base leader alive but it wound up being an officer :/

I'm feeling pretty F'ing stupid that I can't seem to work it out. And just to clarify, are electro grenades working properly? I notice they also do some real damage and I'm worried I might be killing people rather than capturing.

My Lore+ mod would help you here, but if you'd prefer not to install anything, all the images from mine and a333's Alien Class Analysis mod will tell you what to look for in pictorial form!

Caesan leaders have two of the most dreaded psychic abilities - hallucinate and mind control. If you're geting hit by either of those two powers (thankfully there's only ONE leader on a map at any time!) you know you have a leader on your hands.

ARRRG.

I come to this mission kitted out in full capture gear.

There is a tooltip at the start of the mission "woah there's a leader!"

Storm the ship.

Leader corpse is already lying on the ground.

>_>
