Talk:Engaging the Enemy (Apocalypse)
"If mind-controlled by X-Com, the exotic technology they might carry is 'known' to X-Com (how to use it, shoot it, etc.) only for the period of mind control.X-Com does not learn anything from using alien technology is this fashion."
... question, since this situation hasn't really occured for me (I research stuff ASAP). Do all your agents "learn" how to use the alien equipment during this time? Or is it just that mind controlled unit that can use the stuff? If it's just the unit itself, then this sentence isn't accurate.
- a mind controlled unit is classed as an X-com unit up until mind control wears off or the mission completes.
"X-Com does not learn anything from using alien technology is this fashion."
Mind control is, at best, a few seconds longs (RT). If other units pick up a another "alien item" (of the same type) and they can use it too? I don't know. I can only mind control an enemy for about two seconds before it wears off. I haven't tested it. ...but you can! EsTeR (talk)
