XCOM: Enemy Unknown Survival Guide

Dealspwn.com presents ten essential tips and strategies to survive in the cut-throat battles of XCOM: Enemy Unknown.

"Nothing gives you battlefield domination like a well-placed sniper, but since they can't move and fire in the same turn without equipping a restrictive perk, they can be hard to use effectively. However, by equipping the Squadsight perk, they can fire on any enemy unit that their squadmates can see, allowing you to use your frontline troops as spotters while keeping your sharp shooter stationary.

You'll want to get your sniper to central high ground as quickly as possible, preferably using grappling hook-equipped Skeleton armour to secure lofty rooftop perches. A S.C.O.P.E. gadget (more on that later) will increase his/her accuracy to insane levels, while the Gunslinger ability will give their pistol sidearm some much-needed clout if Floaters manage to compromise their position."

Those damn Chrysalids indeed! Cracking game though! Definitely going to be in the running for GOTY come December.

Lost so many men to Chryssalids, wish they didn't move during your turn when you discover them!

FuzzyPixels1386d ago

Just when you think it's safe, they'll burst out of cover and impregnate you with disgusting babies :-(

Utter kudos to Firaxis. THAT'S how you do a franchise reboot!

I agree. Really loving this game. Great reboot and an IP that was desperately needed this gen. Gives a breath of fresh air.

My only gripe about the game is that there should be an auto save feature. Saving just before each mission to ensure I keep all my soldiers alive and not wasted exp can get a tad annoying.

Definitely deserves a nod for GOTY

@Lvl_up_gamer: there is an autosave! :) I didn't realise it myself at first, but you can activate it in the main menu - it saves every round and in the geoscape.

Makes the first run a bit easier.
