Talking permanently.

Just got done with a mission and my Heavy had taken a lot of fire (he had Titan Armor + Chitin Plate and he's a Col. so he had a lot of HP to soak up the punishment). He's listed as Gravely Wounded, back in 7 days (I have the fast healing Officer Training).

I know when a character is Critically Injured/Downed their Will takes a permanent hit. Does Gravely Wounded have any such penalty? (I don't remember the character's stat pre-mission...)


Also, if a character is revived via medikit after being downed, will they still take that permanent hit?


Just basic questions, sorry if it's been gone over to death. Thanks! :)

Supposedly, if you're downed, you get the will penalty. Damage will reduction is just temporary though.

Sorry for offtop, but I so wish you could take medkits off the body of your wounded support... -_-

Not trying to be a dick at all, but I... don't feel like this answered either of my questions very clearly? : /

If he didn't take a nap, he didn't lose permanent will.

I mean that if you're downed and revive, then will penalty. If you're just hurt bad, then no.

Thanks, fellas. :)


@Chrono - I thought that was probably what you meant, just the way it was worded I wasn't sure. Thanks for clarifying.

Are you absolutely certain of that? If a soldier is unconscious and bleeding out or if they're simply taken down to a single hit point, they're both listed as gravely wounded, upon returning to the base. I could've sworn it was the grave wounds that were the cause of the permanent will drop, and if true, they'd both be at equal risk.
When all else fails, read the instructions.

You are thinking about it way way too hard.

It is much more simple than you are making it.

More simple than reading the words "Gravely Wounded"? How much simpler can it get?
