The Sectopod is a heavy, mechanized war machine deployed by the aliens. Having both the highest durability of all of the Alien's mechanized units and the highest hack defence, there are no trivial solutions to an engaged Sectopod.

The Sectopod can be hacked to fight on your side if you use Red screen rounds and Grenadier Bluescreen Bombs. Doing the permanent hack will not bring the Sectopod to the resistance; only MEC can be captured.

Wrath Cannon
The Wrath Cannon is an extremely high energy attack that deals damage in a long line. The firing of the cannon requires the Sectopod to fully charge a series of emitters, which might give quick victims a chance to run and hide.
