Axis, Origin, Infiltrator, and that one unique Psi Outsider ('Matohsome t'hing r'othr') will prolly need their own page. --Xuncu 09:14, 26 August 2013 (EDT)

Well, feel free to create them. I don't own the game since tactical shooters are not my plaything (I took the info for this page from a developer's video where it's possible to see the Developer Mode options) so it would be nice to have someone more or less responsible for setting up this section of the wiki.

From what I've seen in gameplay videos it is better to have a 'Character' subsection for Carter, Faulke, DaSilva, the scientist, the woman agent, and all of the alien characters. Hobbes 11:00, 26 August 2013 (EDT)
I'll do what I can. There aren't Autopsy Files like the other games, but missable autopsy notes scattered around the base for the different alien breeds. Hope we get an influx of people to do some work, as well... How many other active users do we seem to have besides you, me, and Ditto? --Xuncu 08:01, 27 August 2013 (EDT)
You can see a list of active users in the past 9 days here: Special:ActiveUsers, but the 3 of us have been the most active recently with the new games. If you search through the game files you'll probably find a lot of info about several topics (I did it for EU and there's still stuff there that haven't been placed on the wiki yet). In my experience the best is really to focus on a few topics that you're particularly interested and don't worry about the rest, someone will later pick it up. Hobbes 08:57, 27 August 2013 (EDT)

Other Alien Types

I've purchased the Bureau last week and I've finished my 1st game. I thought I saw at least 2 additional aliens not listed here, the Scout and the Phantom, is this correct? There's also that other named alien that you need to capture/kill during one of the secondary missions. Hobbes (talk) 07:54, 8 September 2014 (EDT)

Ah, yes. Scouts, Phantoms, and Phantom Elites. And Mu'ut Jeen's just a Psi Commander with scripting (both dialogue and programming). Well, I wrote a friggin' walkthrough already, even after I said like a year ago I wouldn't write as much anymore-- and between then and now, I think I was the only one to add to Bureau stuff... well, given how small the Enforcer section is, and how Alliance was cancelled (and it's description is near word-for-word how Bureau plays), I guess I can understand that Bureau isn't very popular, and nobody's writing for it. Like the best one I could find is this one, [1] and it's filled with typoes and errors. --Xuncu (talk) 05:42, 9 September 2014 (EDT)
You're doing a good job. I haven't bothered much with the Bureau but now that I've got the game I might dedicate more time to it on the UFOPaedia, although I'm currently playing the original EU and EU2012 at the same time as the Bureau. :) Hobbes (talk) 08:08, 9 September 2014 (EDT)
