The Sonic Pulser is the main method of indirect attack used by the aliens in the Second Alien War. Working at all depths, the Sonic Pulser emits a powerful explosive blast that can shred armor, flesh, and bone alike. Anyone or anything caught in the blast radius will be severely injured and likely killed.
The Sonic Pulser's power surpasses the Magna-Pack Explosive, the most powerful weapon that can be initially purchased. It is smaller, lighter and very powerful and makes for a good standard-issue grenade once they are in decent supply. Sonic Pulsers also cannot be destroyed by other explosions, making them easier to recover. Being a great equalizer against the strong aliens, the Sonic Pulser is a popular early research topic.
Note that aliens that are armed with drills will also be armed with up to four Sonic Pulsers. While the AI does not know how to use the drills, the Pulsers make them extremely dangerous enemies to underestimate.
Comparison to UFO: EUs Alien Grenade
Boasting incredible power, the Sonic Pulser is a refreshing step UP from its predecessor. It outclasses all other grenades.
