Critically Wounded Operative

I know this was discussed elsewhere but could not find the relevant discussion. Operatives that are critically wounded will not fail the mission if both relays are already hacked. Even if operative isn't stabilized, if remaining EXALT are killed before bleed out, you can still successfully win the mission.

I wasn't able to test before hacking relays since savescumming just kept getting operative killed but not wounded, no matter what I tried. So if anyone has any luck with that, please post results.--DracoGriffin 16:24, 12 December 2013 (EST)

Well, if it works after you've hacked both relays, then I guess that works. Still, if they get dropped BEFORE hacking both, you're kinda hosed without a Revive medic. ;) Arrow Quivershaft 17:49, 12 December 2013 (EST)
Well, even after both relays are hacked, you're still supposed to "escort operative to EVAC zone", even if he is bleeding out. If you manage to kill EXALT off before stabilizing or even death, then you automatically win (kind of like how Meld canisters are all recovered if you manage to kill all aliens before collecting all Meld) successfully. If operative dies before EXALT forces are taken care of, then you can still "win", but you lost your operative and EXALT intelligence.
My inquiry is whether the game will force a "loss" before one or both relays are hacked if operative is critically wounded, regardless of Revive medic. Same thing with your question as to accusing EXALT country if lost entire continent, what happens then. (I keep forgetting to savescum this to test results)--DracoGriffin 18:16, 12 December 2013 (EST)
