Welcome to the Tanaga Islands, where an alien attack is currently in progress, and so is our response. We weren't able to get enough Gauss ammo to equip everyone, so two people (Jack and mxlm; there were screwups in weapons issue too) still have Jet Harpoons.
Do not **** with tanks, dammit!
Scourge of Ages, preparing to enter the hotel, meets this alien. It does not survive.
Despite six people shooting at this alien, the only person who hit it was mxlm, who had a Jet Harpoon and didn't kill it with one hit. Yes, that's right, all you Gauss Rifle jockeys blew it and got shown up by somebody with the ****tiest gun in X-COM that can still be considered an actual gun. Spoon had to clean up after it.
Nice hotel, got a sauna for some reason and a beachfront, an alien in the closet-wait that's not supposed to be there, kill it Scourge!
Not that there's anything wrong with being in the closet, unless you're an alien.
This guy came from nowhere, not as much as the Demented Fuzzy Shivan on the ramp, but the tank or someone should have spotted him. He also went to nowhere. I'm not even sure he fired. BlueFlames did, though, and got him.
Bloodeagle gets a kill. watsisname spotted, but he's barely able to move under the weight of the Gas Cannon he ended up with, so his moving around makes it hard for him to shoot things.
Jack and his Jet Harpoon welcome you!
One more for the Spoonzer. I should note that it takes more than one shot even for the tank sometimes, but not this one after Spoon put the shot into this guy's forehead.
*screech of surprise* “Sorry ma'am!”
One for watsisname, now that he's finally gotten to a good overwatch position.
BloodEagle runs up and stuns an alien inside the large bunker thing. Normally by now this thing has cost me a soldier, but for some reason the alien didn't try to engage BloodEagle when it ducked out a few moments ago.
Does anybody know what this damn bunker is even supposed to be? It's not a real bunker, no fire ports, and while the jigger in there does suggest that it's designed to protect against explosions this is a freaking resort. In the Tanaga Islands. Wherever those are. (Apparently near New Zealand from the end-mission location of Triton 1.)
Another for mxlm with his Jet Harpoon.
That was somebody's wife, you fiend! Killing people in the honeymoon suite! CommanderDJ will avenge them!
watsisname hits another, but apparently even the Gas Cannon AP round isn't gutsy enough to ensure a kill as we saw with Talon 1024's death back in the other attempt.
mxlm finishes it off. Damn Gauss people, you're getting dissed here.
Mongoose spots the last one in an area that's technically still dark (spotting is weird
in TFTD) and blasts it with an HE round. Mission Complete.
An alien ship buzzed the base while the team was out, then outran pursuit. Fortunately nothing came of it.
