- xcom eu lead designer as per RPS interviewI never liked the small stun launcher in the original, I always liked that real terrible moment of Ďget in there with the stun rodí and thatís basically what we have, we call it the Arc Thrower but itís basically Ďget in there and pray to God when you pull this thing out that the alien falls overí.
so basically if you want to capture a live alien for the people at the science labs, the only way to do that now is get up close and personal.
arc thrower + prayer = live specimen
arc thrower + prayer = one extremely pissed extra terrestrial.
is it too much to ask for a grenade launcher with stun rounds or something to that effect.
