Here I will Clarify some terms
AP-Action Points. This is what you characters use to move, shoot or interact
        with the environment. Once a character is out of AP, he or she cannot
        do anything.
Overwatch-This command allows a character to guard over an area and shoot if
        an enemy goes into the unit's vision range and spends an equal or 
        greater amount of AP to the overwatch move selected 
Morale- When characters get hurt, or their teamates get killed, the character
        loses morale. Once the character's morale is 0, he/she will use all 
        his/her AP points retreating and you will have ,o control over that 
        character.
Rally-Useable only by character with command skill. Restores morale points of 
      selected unit.    
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
6.Walkthrough
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Chapter 1: Boot Camp
Listen to Jonlan and follow his instructions.
You should kill the first two bots and then you gain control.
Move Jorel into the north-eastern room and kill the bot there. Then move to 
where the last bot is and kill it.
Jorel should level up during the mission. Feel free to spend the skill point on
anything you want, but I used it on rifle weapons.

Chapter 2: Fog of War
Do what Jonlan says for the first two turns. 
Use Snap burst to finish off the bot you turned around to spot. Continue 
further down the corridor until you see another bot. Again, finish it with snap
burst and you should level up. Spend the point on what you want and continue 
moving forward. Move past the sandbags to find a bot patrolling around the o 
shaped dead end. Finish it and look through the window and you will see another
bot. Do a few snap/aimed bursts and it will die.

Chapter 3: Overwatch
You are shown how to initiate and avoid overwatch. Finish the bot with a chain
gun with aimed burst. continue down the road.
Note: Though you aren't shown how to do this yet, you can stand on an enemy's
corpse and take the items they dropped. Do this with the chain gun and have 
some fun. End your turn when you reach the corner. Use your chain gun on the 
bot and once he's dead take his ammo, because chances are, he doesn't have much
ammo on his chain gun. Now pump the last bot full of shrapnel.

Chapter 4: Grenade practice
This is your hardest mission yet.
After killing the bot right in front of you, turn north and grenade the bot 
there. Pick up a gun from one of the bots if you like but it doesn't do much
damage. Grenage the bot at the window and throw two grenades at the bot behind
the secon one. Pick up the grenades and head to the garden area. Throw a smoke
grenade at the path and a HE one at the wall oppisite where you are standing.
Move through the hole you created and use your grenades to go on a killing spree
and finish all the bots behind the windows. You should level up again.

Chapter 5: Speed challenge
This is very easy.
Head southeast and shoot all the bots in your way. Don't worry, they are not 
facing you. Move southeast into the trees. Kill the three bots in your way. 
Once you reach the wall of a house, move south, into a house with only crates in
it, shooting all bots in your way, move south east a bit east a bit and into 
the southernmost house.

From now on I will not give you explicit turn-by-turn directions because
1. I am too lazy
2. It will ruin all your fun
3. there are too many people

Chapter 6: Team Work
DO NOT head straight south, as there are two bots with sniper rifles on 
overwatch. Head north and slaughter everyone in your way and ABUSE you sniper.
She can kill any bot from miles away with aimed and you will not have a chance
to abuse her later on when the enimies have more health.
Be careful along the road, though. Behind the sandbags are bots with chain gun
and overwatch.
As always, end your turn before a corner and move you sniper one space around
the corner and use aimed then move out Jorel and Zak. Work in a clockwise 
spiral and you should kill the last bots to the sandbags south of your starting
position.
This alternative method was submitted by Freak D. It's more aggressive and 
bold, but meh, It gets the jod done quicker than my version. Jorel's rifle 
skill should be at least 4 for this to work. Try it out if you are feeling 
brave.
1. J to the southern door switch to grenade
   R to the northern door but not out yet
   Z same procedure
2. J move 2 [] south 1 east (7AP) throw grenade to sand stacks and move along 
     the eastern housewall
   R move out around and aim-sniper the bot
   Z move as far as possible (blue flowers)
3. J turn around snapshot move one tile south next to the window / or snap 
     burst if you want to be on the save side
   R to the window
   Z to the corner of the small house in the NE
4. J with a rifle skill of at least 4 you should be able to snap shot the two 
     aliens: go to corner snap shot the southern one go around the corner take
     out this one
   R aim sniper the alien inside retreat from window
   Z move NOT in front of the window, take out alien in house
5. J you might want to go to the window and have a look for the last alien
   R return to window position, aim, shoot, victory
   Z since he¡äs wearing a heavy gun he gets a rest ;-)

Chapter 7: First Patrol
This is your first non-training mission!
You have two ways to do this mission. 
The first and the preferred way is to simply make your units step on the arrows
on the other side of the map. 
The other way is to walk around the map and to head for the arrow where Zorn
come out and killing them.
Either way all your characters must reach the arrows on the west side of the
map.

Chapter 8: Escape
A relatively easy mission. 
Here you play as Carlos, a rebel who was captured.
Go south a bit and you will see another guard and a knife on the ground. Pick
up the knife and stab both guards to death. Move out to the north-eastern side
of the map and walk south into the small passageway between two buildings. Go
into the northern one and stab the Zorn at the window on overwatch. You can 
pick up his gun if you want to. Exit the building and walk south into the 
arrow.

Chapter 9: Rescue
You will notice in this map there are several rooms with a door bloching 
entrance into it. Behind them, with the exception of the house directly west of
you, all contain grenades, with the exception containing a machine gun.
Make Sapphire face the window. That way, she can see patrolling Urdogs.
Move your characters eastwards until you reach a door. End your turn when you
reach it as there is an Urdog and a Zorg with a chain gun behind. Snipe at them
with Ruby a few times and they will both die. On the third turn you will gain
control of Carlos. Right next to him is a Zorg with a sub machine gun. Hit him 
a few times with the knife and he will die. You can take his gun if you want 
but I recommend against it, as he has no skill with guns (not for me anyway) 
and carrying it will slow him down.

Move all your characters toward Sapphire's location, killing any enemies in the
way.
Once Sapphire is saved, go slightly north into a thin passageway. You will see
a Zorn with a chain gun facing away from you. Continue down the passegeway 
until you see a building directly south of you. Dispatch the Zorn inside.  Once
you have killed off all the enemies except the ones in the large building 
directly south of where you started and north of where you saved Sapphire, will
move out. Kill them and the mission is done.

Chapter 10: Flight
Again you have two ways to do this. You could make each character move flat-
out toward the exit of the map. You will not get hurt and will get a perfect
score in speed and health.
Or you could move your units into the ruins and defend from there. If you 
choose the latter, move your units into the ruins and put Ruby and another unit
(prefably Jorel) and use overwatch. Sapphire should be in the middle of the 
ruins and has easy reach to all of your units in case they need healing. Carlos
and Zak should guard the entrances in case the enemy tries to flank you. Note 
that some Zorn will carry grenades and can ruin the ruins even more. When 
you're done, head to the exit of the map.

Chapter 11: Bot factory
Make glen give all his pistols, his HE grenade and ammo to three bots. 
Send five bots south into the weapons factory. Arm two with chain gun, two with
assault rifle and one with grenades. You can choose to distribute the weapons 
differently but that is what I did. Set up two bots at the window with 
overwatch and the rest behind the sandbags. Keep Glen safe and in the building.
Now, all you have to do is wait for the enemy to attack. ABUSE grenades, as 
they can't miss and do a fair amount of the Fraylar's health.
Once all the enemies are killed, the mission is complete.

Chapter 12: Base Defence
This is a pretty hard mission. It took me a few tries to get through this one.
Defend behind the sandbags. DO NOT 
deploy your units behind the northernmost sandbags.
There are barells there and if an enemy hits it, it will explode, damaging or
killing your units. Deploy your units in behind any sandbags BUT that one and
snipe the hell outta them =). Burning down the trees with flame thrower makes 
it MUCH easier. Be careful of dinosaurs though, they have high HP and will be 
able to kill any of your characters in one blow. Overwatch him into oblivion. 
When there is only one Zorn left, loot all the bodies, as now, weapons will 
carry over into the next mission.
IMPORTANT: If one of your characters has died, be sure to loot all his/her 
weapons, as the weapons he/she was carrying will not come back if you leave 
them there.

Chapter 13: Fraylar Outpost
You might want to make a Fraylar model for this when you're done to rip up.
In this mission, you only control Glen, Gordo, Spapphire, Eris and Carlos. 
Equip someone with a sniper rifle, someone with rifle weapons skill. 
When you start off, head north east, hugging the edge of the map. Be careful of
windows as they most likely have a Fraylar behind it with overwatch.
Once you reach the top of the map, hug the east edge and move south. Once you
are at the southernmost area of the map, enter the Fraylian buildings one by 
one and sneak up on them and dispatch them. As you are attacking from their 
blindside, they cannot overwatch you. Note that there is a bee flying around 
the map. you might want to kill it first

Chapter 14: Breach
You really need some kind of Fraylar figurine for this mission. Give everyone
who has Rifle skill a sniper rifle. Load Zak with explosives such as HE 
grenades and blaster to blow up the wall. Use your snipers to kill all the 
Fraylar behind the stumps and behind the windows. Don't worry: You'll be 
suprised at how accurate they are. Once all the Fraylar have been killed, loot
their bodies and blow up the wall with Zak. Kill the hive master and use your 
snipers to take out the fire beetle out at a distance.

Chapter 15: The Hive
You will be needing a lot of grenades for this mission, as grenades are the 
only way to destroy the large eggs. That, or the laser blade you can loot off 
the hive master, but you need a power cell to use it. The small ones can de 
destroyed by any weapon fire. DO NOT use fire weapons, as it will bug the 
level, not letting youfinish the mission, even if you have destroyed all the 
eggs.
Move to the west, hugging the wall as you move north. You will see a Fraylar 
not facing you. Dispatch him with a sniper. Once you see a window past two 
stumps, move a character with a grenade to face that window. You will see a 
Fraylar. Grenade it to death. You could also use a sniper if you want.
Continue moving north. When you reach the top of the building, move through the 
door. Once in the hive, as always, end your turn before a corner. Have a 
killing spree in the hive, as most of the Fraylar are overwatching toward the 
outside. Note that reinforcements will arrive from the two northern arrows.
Also, do not forget to pick up the *drolls* laser cannon *drools* one Fraylar 
drops.  
Destroy all the eqqs and the mission is complete.

Chapter 16: Ghost Town
This is a very easy mission.
Kill the Zorn to the right of you between the two buildings. Head north.
Once you are on your second turn, make one of your units face behind you. That 
unit will see a Zorn. Kill him.
Move north to the boxes but do not cross, instead enter the building to the 
north-west and kill the Zorn with a laser cannon there. I suggest you pick it 
up. In the building to the east will ba a Zorn and an Arelian. Be careful of 
the Arelian, as it has a warp blaster and does major damage. If you take too 
long dipatching tose enemies, Urdogs will spawn from the arrows and attack you. 
Kill them both and you finish the nission, hopefully with an elite rank, due to 
the mission's easiness.
You can now upgrade psionics!

Chapter 17: Arelian Lab
This mission isn't as hard as it seems. But if you didn't upgrade command, it 
will be a lot harder.
Put most of your units on the north side and deploy two units on the south, 
prefably Jorel and Carlos, because they have high AP.
The lab is divided into two sections with a path running down the middle. To 
the left section, the entrance is at the bottom and there is one Arelian 
guarding the doorway and two in the room to the north of that with three 
chairs.
In the right section, whose entrance is at the top, there is one Arelian 
guarding the entrance and two in the room south of that with three chairs. 
ALWAYS end your turn before a corner if you don't want to be overwatched into 
nothiness. Rally often, as in most cases, two psionic shots and a character 
will panic. Pick up all the weapons, especially the warp rifles. 
If you take too long killing off the Arelians, you will drown in the sea of 
Urdogs and Zorn that spawn from the arrows.

Chapter 18: Perimeter
As ia all open-area missions, ABUSE your snipers. Get as many snipers as you 
can out. They will be invaluable in this mission.
There will be an Arelian behind the clump of trees right in front of you.
In the building to the north-west, where the arrows are, will be two Arelians,
one with warp rife and one with laser rifle. You snipers will have no trouble 
with them. Loot them if you wish.  Continue to the bridge.
There will ba a few Zorn on the other side, as usual, snipe the hell outta 
them. And exit via the arrows. Or if you want some more experience, wait across
the bridge and wait for Saucers to spawn. They're the Arelian version of Fire
Beetles and Raptors. Note that they're ranged and can easily take out one of 
your characters in one hit.

Chapter 19: Arelian Base
This mission is a joke!
If you want to finish it quickly, give someone with high AP a power cell and a 
warp weapon. Go north, blast the first generator. Note: The generators are the 
orange things surrounded by a laser fence. You cannot shoot over the laser 
fence.
Move between the two generators and blast them both. If you want some 
experience, there will be a few Arelians in secluded areas. If you follow the 
rule: end your turn before a corner, you'll be right.

Chapter 20: Reaper Valley
This place is experience paradise.
Use snipers again. Move forward and shoot the two Raptors in front of you. They
are no problem if you use warp weapons. Face the other side of the river and 
you will see another Raptor. Snipe it if you want some experience and continue 
to the arrows. If you are too slow reaching the exit, Urdogs and Raptors will 
spawn fron the arrows. Kill them if you want more experience.

Chapter 21: The Awful Truth
Deploy your characters in the southern building. Move north, killing any Zorn
or Urdogs in your way until you reach a building between two arrows. There is a
Zorn overwatching out the window. Either sneak past the window and enter and 
kill the Zorn or go right up to the window and blast him. You should now be 
just south of the building where Rudy is captured. Avoid the windows of the 
houses to either side of Ruby's cell, as there are Zorn on overwatch behind the 
windows. Open the door there and go inside. Kill the Zorn facing the window and
open the door to Ruby's cell. Run back the way you came, with a few characters 
guarding the rear and to either side, as the enemy gets reinforcements from the
arrows. Loot all you can and make your characters go back to the arrows.

Chapter 22: Counterattack
This mission is similar to Base Defence. Enemies will come in waves. 
You should equip everyone with either machine, sniper rifles, or warp weapons.
Position some people to the eastern, western and northern sandbags. Snipe 
any Arelian you see. When you kill everyone in the first wave, you will know
when you end your turn and there is no enemy turn. After a few more waves the 
mission will end. Watch out for an Arelian with Psi Launcher that comes from 
the north eastern section of the map. Also watch out for an Arelian with a 
light sword, as he will attempt to go behind your lines and stab you. After a 
few waves, there will be saucers from the west, they are too far away to be 
accurate, snipethem to death, or if you picked up the Psi Launcher, one hit 
will kill it.

Chapter 23: Journey North
Equip some of your people with the power suit if you haven't done so already.
Also be sure to use some warp or laser weapons here, as you will need the fire-
power. You can deploy everybody in this mission, but I would recommend against
it if some of your units are not as experienced as your other units, as this is
one of the everyone must exit the map missions. 
The easiest way is to give Carlos cloaking field and go through, but then you
will miss out on a lot of experience.
Instead, use the units you're comfortable with. Move west and north between 
the two buildings and put your characters on overwatch(if possible). You 
will see a Snakefly fly past and (hopefully) you shot it down. Then you will 
see a Fire Beetle, but you will probably miss it. Move one person into the 
building to the south of you and kill the Fraylar on overwatch there. Shoot 
down the Snakefly if you didn't kill it and snipe the hell outta that Fire 
Beetle This should be no problem if you use warp rifles.. Remember: Unlike 
Raptors, those things are ranged. Also note that there is another fire beetle 
to the south-east of the one you can see. Shoot it ifnessessary.  
Then, move north-east, using your snipers to dispatch anything in your way. 
Watch out for the arrows, as Snakeflies spawn there. When all your units reach
the arrows, you finish the mission.

Chapter 24: Abduction
You will be VERY, VERY sorry if you didn't upgrade Jorel's close combat skill.
Nevertheless, this mission is completable even if you didn't. Don't gape at 
Klaatu's whoping 9 in Psionics, the problem is that he's on level one and can 
only use one Psionic move per turn.

This is the work of Nobody's.

Note that when I say growths, I mean how much better the weapon gets with more 
skill in that weapon. i.e. a rifle that has a +5% accuracy for each rifle skill
is pretty good.

7.1. Rifles
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Overview: Good all round weapons, low damage but high accuracy. Light and easy
to use.

*** Assault Rifle ***

Description: Standard Rebel rifle. Flexible and effective
Ammo: 25
Weight: 4
Ammo weight: 1
My review: Good at the start but in later missions, you might want to switch to 
laser/warp rifles, as it deals pretty low damage.

*** Sniper Rifle ***

Description: Highly accuurate long ranged weapon
Ammo: 10
Weight: 4
Ammo weight: 1
My review: VERY accurate and easy to abuse at early levels. Again, not so 
effective in layer missions when the enemies have more health. 
Best used on units with high rifle skill, as the growths for this weapon is 
pretty good.

*** Sub-Machine Gun ***

Description: Fully automatic, close range gun.
Ammo: 35
Weight: 3
Ammo weight: 1
My review: A notch up from the assault rifle signifigantly less accurate but 
cheaper to use. Good for units with low or no rifle skill, as it doesn't get 
much better with more skill.

*** Laser Rifle ***
Shots w/ Small:   13
Shots w/ Medium:  20
Shots w/ Large:   26

Description: Laser powered rifle weapon. Requires a power cell to function.
Ammo: 4/6/8
Weight: 5
My review: Nice damage, especially since it can use snap burst. This is offset 
by horrible accuracy. Again not good growths with this weapon.

Shots w/ Small:   4
Shots w/ Medium:  6
Shots w/ Large:   8

Description: Arelian energy beam rifle. Requires a power cell to function.
Ammo: 4/6/8
Weight: 5
My review: Like the sniper rifle, this is not for units without at least a 6 in
rifle skill. Very good growths and is the rifle that does the most damage per 
hit. Much like a sniper rifle, don't be afraid to abuse this either.

8. FAQs
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
These are some of the questions concerning gameplay on the GameFAQS board

1. Q.When do you get______ skill
A.The skill below can be upgraded once you level up a character and have 
finished the required mission.
Command- After Chapter 7: First Patrol
Stealth- After Chapter 8: Escape
Heal- After Chapter 9: Rescue
Psionic- After Chapter 16: Ghost TOwn
2. Q.Do the weapons and ammo "respawn" after every mission? If not, do they EVER
get replenished, or do I have to make the weapons and the ammo that are in the 
armory now last the entire game?
A. Weapons don't respawn but ammo does get added every couple of missions, but 
it isn't much. Be sure to pick up all you can from fallen foes and loot your 
fallen characters, as the weapons they are carrying will not come back 
otherwise.

3. Q.How exactly does stealth work? The enemy sees me just as much.
A. Stealth is only dodge. Upgrading the stealth skill does not make you any 
stealthier. Each time stealth is upgraded, it gives the character an additional
10% dodge. Stealth only works if the character is facing the enemy.

4. Q.In Chapter 15, I destroyed all the eggs, big and small, but nothing 
happens. What do I do?
A. If you used fire weapons to burn the eggs, the game bugs up and you will 
never finish that stage. Use HE grenades and laser blades to kill the big ones.
use any kind of weapon fire to finish the small ones.

5. Q.What skill should should I level up for a particular character?
A. You should upgrade the skill corresponding to the weapon the character is 
holding. i.e. Character normally uses rifles-->upgrade rifle skill
If the skill is greyed out, upgrade stealth. Extra dodge never hurts. Or you 
could do command- You will need it later on for the Arelians whom use Psionics
to attack your morale directly.

6. Q.How do I use laser/warp weapons? Every time I equip them, no shoot command
comes up.
A. Make sure that character has a power cell equipped. Or if they do, check if
they have enough AP remaining.
