Evac (LW2)

Jump to: navigation, search

In Long War 2, evacuating a mission via skyranger will be a common occurrence due to some missions having infinite alien reinforcements. A few things have changed about the way EVAC works that the savvy commander should know.

1. Throwing the evac flare will break concealment, and enemy forces will actively converge on the evac zone.
2. Evac is no longer immediate, you will have to wait several turns for the skyranger to arrive based on the following factors:
