Compendium Weapons update on 07/23/06

Finally, on 09/04/06, I updated again. Whew.  I'll try to update more often.
Updated a very few weapons in the compendium, and moved all ascii
maps to an alternate source.

03/02/07-Far from carrying out my promise to update more often, I'll tell
why I haven't been: my classes are tougher than I expected.  I will update
this at least semi-frequently in the summer, but you'll have to make do
with this very small guide until then.  Oh, and if you think that I've forgotten
about this guide (as I often do) you can jog my memory with an email.
In fact, the only reason I'm updating now is to add an emailed strategy by
alex2143.  Yay for an update!


===================
II. The Story
===================

The story, taken straight from the manual, goes like this:

"The year is 2117, and the Arelian Empire is in total control of the planet 
Earth.  Well, almost.  A brave group of resistance fighters have evaded 
the regime of the Arelians and are starting to fight back.  It has been 70 
years since the invaders came, and the new generation of resistance 
fighters have known nothing of Earth as it was before.  Now they live in 
fear of the Zorn, the Arelians' vicious henchmen, and their sadistic 
brutish methods of control.  On the other hand, many people tolerated the 
Arelians because they brought stability and prosperity to a world ravaged 
by war,disease, and ecological devastation.  They even tolerated the 
abductions.  Under the imperial regime, each human child is taken soon 
after birth and implanted with a small device inside the skull.  No one 
knows the exact purpose of the device, except that it enables the Arelians 
to locate a person anywhere, no matter where they may hide.  The human 
population is allowed to live in relative freedom, without any obvious 
sign of interference from the Arelians, except when the age of 30 is 
reached.  At this point the skull device is used to locate the 30 year old
for abduction.  The Zorn, a mutant green humanoid race, are used as the
police service of the Arelians.  They come during the night and take their 
victims away by force.  Some humans with important roles are spared this
fate but the majority are taken.  Nobody know the purpose of these 
abductions, or what happens to them afterwards.  All they know is that on 
their 30th birthday they will disappear and no one will ever see them 
again.  These brave rebels are on a quest for the truth, and the truth is 
not so pleasant.  The Arelian's conquest of Earth was not driven by a 
noble purpose."
==================
Rebels.................REB
==================

Jorel:  "Jorel is a young, idealistic, natural-born leader, determined to
avenge the abduction of his entire family as they tried to fight against 
the abduction of his mother by the Zorn.  Once his family was gone, Jorel 
traveled south to join the rebels.  He is plagued by strange dreams in 
which a  mysterious Arelian contacts him telepathically." 
Jorel is best with rifles and hand guns, but fairly effective with stealth.

Ruby:  "Ruby is a skilled marksman from South America and fled home as
soon as she could.  She was selected for special tests by the Arelians and
was abducted at regular intervals.  However, her skull implant 
malfunctioned after she fell in a riding [motorcycle or horse, we'll never 
know] accident and nearly lost her life.  After being nurtured back to 
health by her mother and sister she was urged to flee.  She finally 
gathered the courage to run, after her mother was taken away by the Zorn."
Ruby is incredible with rifles.

Zak:  "Zak is a heavy weapons expert, and one of the older recruits at 
the training camp.  He is immensely strong and loyal, but does not speak 
much about his past.  He has had experience fighting the Zorn in his
hometown, which rebelled en masse against abductions.  He longs to find his
younger sister, who fled before the town was attacked and his parents 
killed."
Zak is very good with heavy weapons and close combat.

Corporal Jonlan:  "Jonlan is one of the oldest, and grizzliest, rebel 
soldiers.  He is charge of [It's a typo in the manual] training new 
recruits.  He was once a highly respected leader.  An incident occurred 
where many people perished in a raid where he commanded rebel troops.  
Although he was cleared of blame by the rebel tribunal, he opted for 
demotion out of a sense of guilt and responsibility."

Gordo:  A squad commander that ends up coming under Jorel's command.
Good news: Well rounded
Bad news: Mediocre
I usually use command with Gordo, but it requires that he have the
highest command skill of any allied character.

Eris:  A member of Gordo's squad.
Eris is absolutely the best character for psionics, other than maybe Klaatu.
If properly trained, she can exceed him.

Sapphire:  A member of Gordo's squad.  She is a medic, and was 
captured by the Zorn to act as doctor.
Good as a medic and not shabby with handguns.

Carlos:  A member of Gordo's squad.  Captured by the Zorn. 
Nickname:  The Panther.
Good with rifles, great with stealth.

Glen: Some other guy that ends up working with/for you.    :)
I haven't used him much yet, but I know he is good with psionics.

Dr. Bronstein: A non-combat scientist who discovers various things.
Nothing real specific, though.

Bots:  Servant bots of the rebel army, most are used for honing the skills
of trainees.
Surprisingly effective in the stealth catagory, but nothing else.

[SPOILER]
Klaatu:  Talks to Jorel during his dreams.
Joins during mission 24 .  Starts with 9 in psionics.
[/SPOILER]

======================
IV.  Alien Species
======================

First Up:

Zorn:
The manual says:  "The Zorn are muscular, humanoid aliens that stand
eight feet tall, have a green leathery skin, fiery red eyes and a mouth full
of sharp teeth.  Their violent ways have proved useful for the Arelians, who
employ them as soldiers and policemen in the conquered earth territories.
To aid them in their tasks, they raise vicious Urdogs for baiting and
trapping humans."

I say:  Big ugly green guys that look like less the incredible hulk with guns.
They are the primary enemy for a short part of the game.  They are fairly
weak, but don't expect pushovers.

Urdogs:  Mutant, green dogs that the Zorn have trained for killing people
with.  Low health, and can't equip weapons.  Combat abilities are distinctly
similar to Snakeflies.  Don't end your turn near to one, because they will
move up to you and attack physically multiple times in a row.  (They can do
this because their attacks take very little AP).

Fraylar:
The manual says: "The Fraylar have a skinny, humanoid appearance, with
an insect-like exoskeleton and bony appendages.  They are renowned
throughout the galaxy as traders and thieves, and are quite happy to fight
if they see an advantage.  They also employ the services of Snakeflies
-large, flying, insect-like creatures with a poisonous bite."

I say:  Insectoids with a passion for laser weapons.  In fact, they won't use
anything BUT laser weapons (with one or two exceptions).
(Don't confuse laser with warp)

Snakeflies:  Close your eyes, and imagine a bumblebee.  With a stinger 
like a yellow jacket.  Magnify x100, and make the stinger "poison" and you 
get these guys. (the manual says poison, but I have never observed any 
poison effects.  Maybe it was just for show.)
As for combat info, they're almost exactly the same as Urdogs.

Arelians:
The manual says:  "The Arelians are small, grey-skinned, humanoid
creatures with a very large head and large, black, almond shaped eyes.
They don't like to participate in battles, but when they do, they prefer to
rely on their unique psionic power and advanced technology to win.  They
generally lack courage or much battle skills, but they are still formidable
opponents if encountered."

I say:  What the manual says about them lacking battle skills is quite wrong.
They have far superior weaponry and have those ever-annoying psionic
abilities.  Speaking of which, beware "Induce Fear".

==================
V.  Controls
==================

I assume that you know the names of the buttons.  
If you don't, get a photo of a GBA from Google.

A:       Menu selections/confirmations/scroll dialogue
B:       Cancel stuff/open pause screen
D-Pad:   Move cursor-box/manipulate window cursor/change between 
armory and personnel equipment screens
L:     Cycle between people with AP left that aren't on overwatch/same 
as last function of R, but backwards
R:     Check vision of allied and enemy units, cycle through characters 
         in the personnel equipment part of the armory
Start:   Skip dialogue/open pause screen
Select:  Open help page

=====================
VI. Campaign Walkthrough 
=====================

In this section, I will be going over campaign maps, strategies, and 
enemies. [duh.]  Now, as for the part you didn't know.  For each 
mission I'll have the number, name, the type that it is, the general 
overview of what it looks like, the number and kind of enemies and their 
weapons, and the general strategy.

About mission types, I have designated 4 different kinds of missions.  
They involve the following:
	
Training-  You have to do certain actions at certain times.  It is almost a
staged victory.

Destroy objective-  You are given a target (or targets) to kill, and it 
doesn't matter if some enemies survive.

Flee-  There are green tiles with an arrow pointing away.  Get a 
character on one of these, and he/she disappears.  When all of the 
characters have Vanished from the map, you win.  NO casualties are 
acceptable.

Search and Destroy-  Eliminate all enemies. This is the most common
form of level.

Also, one other thing is that I will attempt to make intelligible ASCII maps,
but since the game is isolinear, I'm giving the map a half turn right, or
left, it usually ends up being a different direction each time :).

One other thing is that when I refer to North/South/East/West, I mean:
           N
     w   -|-    e
           s
Anyway, here is where the guide begins.

I had trouble getting the ascii maps to align correctly, so I moved them to

http://www.esnips.com/doc/28fbc842-4bdb-4cd4-9a6a-ca93fbd
93e5f/asciimaps.doc

Even though they are not contained in this document, they are bound
by the same legal contract.
	
==================
Mission 1   Boot Camp
===================
Alright.  Here it is, the first mission.  Luckily for you, the first few
levels of this fairly complicated game are training missions.

When the mission starts, follow Jonlan's advice; it is very helpful.  Just 
get used to the controls and whatnot.  

Nothing will go wrong.

--Enemies--
Bot----level1----trainer rifle----no skills
Bot----level1----trainer rifle----no skills
Bot----level1----trainer rifle----no skills
Bot----level1----trainer rifle----no skills

There are no reinforcements in this level.


=================
Mission 2: Fog of
                   War
=================
In any event, you can't see the bots, until they fall into your vision range,
as will be the case for the rest of the game.
Just follow Jonlan's advice.  

--Enemies--
Bot----level1----trainer rifle----no skills
Bot----level1----trainer rifle----no skills
Bot----level1----trainer rifle----no skills
Bot----level1----trainer rifle----no skills
Bot----level1----trainer rifle----no skills


============
Mission 3
Overwatch
============

Alright, this mission is a bit different from the ones that you have done 
so far.  For one thing, all of the enemies use real weapons.  The trainer 
rifles previously used by the bots did 1 dmg. per shot.  The chain gun, 
and to a lesser extent, the pistol, do more than that.  Also, if you like, 
you can use a pistol or chain gun in this mission.  For the chain gun, 
just pick it up off of a dead bot.  The pistol requires you to probably 
get shot up really bad.  You should save if you attempt this.  (I haven't 
gotten it before, but it should be possible to run the 2nd chain gun guy 
out of ammo.)

If something goes wrong, you can't do a lot about it (no medikits), but 
just make sure not to get ambushed by the pistol guy.  Don't 
underestimate that thing.  It only requires a wee bit of your AP to be
gone before you get gunned down in the hallway.  Also be that aware,
that you and the enemy, are not restricted to one overwatch per turn.


--Enemies--
Bot^----impossible to tell level----unarmed----unknown skills
Bot*----lvl. 1----chain gun, ammo x1----no skills
Bot*----lvl. 1----chain gun, ammo x1----no skills
Bot!----lvl. 1----pistol, ammo x1----no skills

=================
Mission 4  
Grenade Practice
=================

Alright, this mission will likely mark your first use of weapons other 
than the assault rifle.  First, remember that every time you throw a 
'nade, you become unequipped.  You have to re-equip to throw again.  
This means that if you stand entirely still, you can likely throw, reequip,
and throw again.  If you move, you probably won't be throwing again that
turn.

Just nade each bot, and remember, grenades do not have 100%
accuracy, but they are usually very close to that.  Also, they have a very
large blast radius, so be very far from your target, like 4 spaces if you
don't mind taking 1~3 damage, or 6ish spaces if you want 0 self
damage.

Now, as long as you don't waste 'nades, and don't bother with smokes
(I never do.), you should be fine.  (Nading the wall is not a waste, but 
make sure to hit the brick part, because the steel part is invulnerable.)
Also, have a rifle, but don't use it unless run out of explosives.
(remember, each bullet does 1 damage, so you will have to sneak up on 
each bot's side/back, and hit it w/ 2 snap bursts.  Don't fire if you can't 
finish him off that turn, or he will see you and snap burst you back.
A lot.  Like 3 times.)

Don't forget, all the garden bots are on overwatch.  This is bad because 
you will get shot at a lot at long range, but also good because they won't 
patrol.

--Enemies--
Bot----lvl. 1----trainer rifle----no skills
Bot----lvl. 1----trainer rifle----no skills
Bot----lvl. 1----trainer rifle----no skills
Bot----lvl. 1----trainer rifle----no skills
Bot----lvl. 1----trainer rifle----no skills
Bot----lvl. 1----trainer rifle----no skills
Bot----lvl. 1----trainer rifle----no skills

==============
Mission 5
Speed Challenge
==============

All right, this map is very large, and very crawling with bots (approx
12) Because of those numbers, you are probably not going
to kill all of them.

All bots are on overwatch/snapshot on this mission.

There is yet another problem.  All bots have assault rifles instead of 
trainer rifles.  These deal 5 damage per bullet instead of the 1 that you
are used to, meaning about 4 bullets will kill you.  If you get badly
wounded, your morale will start to drop, turn by turn, until it hits zero and
you panic, thus getting mowed down.

With only 25 turns, it would be a tight fit to kill them all, and if you get 
discovered by a close-by bot, you'll run the risk of death.  It took me
18ish turns to get 7 kills, and would have gotten 9, but I ran out of bullets.
If you save before you move, you'll have a fair crack at it, and make sure 
to grab a new rifle when your current one hits 10 shots left.  Another
complication arises when you make them panic by killing enough of
them. They will run around erraticly, thus making hard to sneak about
unseen, and hard to find them when you need them.  My current
standing record is 9 kills, so that I have beaten my old record.

On the other hand, you could just run, only shooting when absolutely
neccessary.  You won't really get much xp, but this map is designed for
speed instead of fighting anyway.  Make sure to stop before corners,
because there's always a bot where you least expect it.  (Well,
that is if you don't have a convenient ascii map)

All 12 bots:
level 1-no skills-assault rifle

Mission 6
Team Work
============

Sorry, I'll add this either soon or when summer starts.

==================
VII. Compendium of 
    Knowledge
==================

==
1.
==
These are valuable tactics, but some are just common sense :)	

Fortify-  Take a structure on the map, and set up camp there.  Don't let 
the enemy in.

Lightning Charge-  Charge, and control an advantageous area before
the enemy does.

Hit & Run-  Stay behind a wall, step out, shoot an aimed shot, step back,
end your turn.  Works well against overwatching people.

Lead Storm-  Have 2-5 people with automatic weapons get shoulder
to shoulder, and burst overwatch the same area with everyone.  Unwitting
enemy walks in, and boom.  Gets shot at by 15-20 bullets, many more if
using the SMG.  For example, if you do three smg's on snap burst, and
each person only has enough AP to burst once, you have the potential
to do 3 people * 5 bullets * 4 damage=60 damage.  The Reapers (huge
dinosaurs) in mission 20 have ~70 health, to give you an idea how much 
damage this does.

Point Blank-  Using someone w/ high rifle skill and an SMG/Assault Rifle
(preferably the former), run up to an enemy and snap burst  them from an
adjacent panel (not diagonally, if you can help it.  It actually has a chance
to miss that way).
	
Weapon Replication-  After some missions, the armory is refurbished 
with new weapons.  If this happens, then say the rocket launchers are 
affected.  If Zak has a launcher, then the armory will replace the "lost"
one; the one he has equipped.  Thus, his+the armory's=2 launchers.
When you do this, the character does not even have to be deployed.
Be careful though, because if you are supposed to have 1 launcher,
but have two (in the armory), then at the next restock, you'll lose one.

Surgical Incision- Take two people with Sniper Rifles and hide around a
doorway like so:

----------------------            --------------------------
                       X>           <X
Overwatch with snapshot.  If they pass between you, one person shoots a 
powerful SR shot at point blank.  If they survive, the next person shoots.
If they don't, they second person (in theory) won't shoot and wound the first
person.  That last part is why you do this with single shots.  If you do
bursts (such as with two SMGs), the extra shots hit your ally.

alex2143's Storm of Lead:

"Give [Carlos] a machine pistol and move him around some enemies
(he has very high AP so that should be easy). Make sure there's no
more then 2 enemies with no more then 16 hp each (or 20, if you feel
lucky). Sneak up on them (preferably unseen, though it also works when
you get spotted without being Overwatched) and fill them with lead
using a snap burst on both of 'em. If he has a high hand gun level,
snap bursts with a machine pistol (5 pretty inaccurate shots doing 4
damage each) cost about 4 AP. Means you can get close and make an
enemy 10 bullets heavier.
"


My comment:  similar to my point blank SMG spam tactic, but this
involves a touch of stealth.  Nice.  By the way, the machine pistol is a fun
weapon to use.  It's on my list of good weapons, though not at the top.


Develop your own, send em' in, and if they are good, 
I'll add them here and credit you.  
[Don't forget to name them :)]

It is possible to greatly reduce lag if you turn off the music and/or sfx.
Do that in the options menu in battle.
The music takes off more lag than the sfx.

Attributes of skills:

Rifle weapons:  Increases accuracy, decreases AP cost, and increases
damage for rifle weapons.  Different weapons increase power at different
rates.

Heavy weapons:  Same as rifle weapons, but applies to heavy weapons
instead.

Hand Guns: Same as rifle weapons or heavy weapons, but only applies to
hand guns.

Close Combat: Same.  Only applies to close combat weapons.

Stealth:  Stealth level *10 is the percent chance of dodge a character
has against an attacker the defender can actually see. (Dodging takes 
1 AP) Also makes a character harder to see, reducing the range s/he can
be spotted from by the target's Stealth level number of panels.

Command:  Affects the "Rally" skill, which recovers morale.  Only the
person with the most number of command points on the each team can
use rally.  More points=better range and more points recovered.

Medic: More medic level means more health/stun/morale recovered by
medkits and also reduces required AP.  1 point or more is required to use
Arelian medikits.  As for normal medkits, I don't know.

Psionic:  An interesting and powerful skill.  Psionics requires absolute
devotion to work, however, considering that 3 of the 4 skills it gives you
require the targets psionics skill to be lower.  The four psionic techniques
are:
Scan: reveals all enemies in range that have lower psionics stat.
Boost Morale: increases morale of the target.  The game says that it
requires more psionic points than the target, but that is NOT true.  It is like
Rally, except it requires much more AP.
Induce Fear:  This is the reason why you should use psionics.  It reduces
enemy morale if they have a lower psionic stat than you.
Stun:  Inflicts stun damage on your opponent (it greys out their life bar,
and when their life bar is totally white, they can't move).  Does not require
the target to have a lower psionic stat than you.

Attributes of weapons:

An explanation of weapon damage growth math:
Take the assault rifle, for example.  Damage=5+(skill*5%).
First step:  This means 5 damage, plus take your skill and multiply it by
5%.  If you have four in "rifles", then it would look something like this.
5+(4*5%), thus 5+(20%).
20% of 5 is 1, thus
5+1.
If you have a four in rifles, you do 6 damage per shot.(with an Assault Rifle)
If you have an eight in rifles, you do 7 damage per shot.  (With an AR)

Accuracy is really easy to figure out.
The AR's snapshot is 20%+skill*3.
If you have a 10 in Rifles, it would be
20%+(10*3)
20%+30%
50%.

For AP cost, it is a little bit different.
The AR's snap shot equation is 33%-Skill*1
First, take your max AP and multiply it by the percent.
21 ap*33%= 7
7-skill*1.
If you have a 6 in rifles, then it would be
7-(6*1), thus (7-6), therefore 1.
I am not sure as of now if ap cost has a minimum of one, or if it can be 0.
It makes sense that it should be limited to 1.

-----------------
Assault Rifle
-----------------

I says:  The assault rifle will likely be your primary weapon for the first part
of the game.  It has a variety of firing modes, good damage, and medium
good accuracy.  The only real problem is the AP cost.  It doesn't start bad,
but the AP use growths (or lack thereof) don't help it at all.
They says:  Most people use it more than I do.  I usually ditch it for the SMG
first chance I get; they usually keep using it longer.
The game says:  Standard Rebel infantry rifle.  Flexible and effective.
	Firing Mode 1---Snapshot
	1 shot, 1 ammo per shot
	5 Damage + skill*5%
	Accuracy 20%+skill*3
	AP cost 33% - skill*1

	Firing Mode 2---Aimed
	1 shot, 1 ammo/shot

	Firing Mode 3---Snap Burst

	AP cost 40%-skill*1
	
	Firing Mode 4---Aimed Burst
	3 shots, 1 ammo/shot
	5+skill*5% accuracy
	AP cost 60%-skill*1
Weight: 4
Ammo weight:1

-----------------
Sniper Rifle
-----------------
I says:  This is very likely the best weapon in the game.  With a 10 in rifles,
you can get 98% snapshots that do 10 damage 6 times per turn with a few
points left over for moving slightly.  With this set-up, the only limiting
factor is ammo.  I use this weapon every chance I get.
They says:  Most people don't think the SR is as good as I do, but many
agree that it is still quite useful.
The Game says:  Highly accurate long range rifle.

	Firing Mode 1---Snapshot
	1 shot, 1 ammo/shot
	6+ skill*8% damage
	35%+skill*6 accuracy
	AP cost 45%-skill*3

	Firing Mode 2---Aimed
	1 shot, 1 ammo/shot
	6+skill*8% damage
	80%+skill*4 accuracy
	AP Cost:  85%- skill*3
Weight:  4
Ammo Weight:  1

-----------------------------------
SMG (Sub Machine Gun)
-----------------------------------
I says:  Aah, this must be one of my favorite guns.  This weapon alone has
gotten me out of more jams than any other weapon other than the sniper
rifle.  If you get point blank to an enemy, the super-cheap (APwise) snap
burst=automatic 20 damage.
They says:  Most people like this weapon better than the AR, but ditch it
for laser or warp rifles when they get the chance.  Meh.
The Game says:  Fully automatic, close range gun.

	Firing Mode 1---Snap Burst
	5 shots, 1 ammo/shot
	4  damage
	10% + skill*2 accuracy.
	AP cost 30%-skill*2

	Firing Mode 2---Aimed Burst
	5 shots, 1 ammo/shot
	4 damage
	20%+skill*3 accuracy
	AP cost 55%-skill*2
	Additional:  Never use this.  If you get in any situation where
	you think this might be useful, use two snap bursts.  It's an
	oxymoron to use an SMG on accurate.

	Firing Mode 3---Spread Burst
	9 shots, 1 ammo/shot
	4 damage
	12%+skill*3 accuracy
	AP cost  60%-skill*2
	Additional:  Only use this when point-blank with an enemy.
	They don't call it spread burst for nothin'.  If your character
	is the tip of a cone, the affected target area is the base of
	the cone (not up and down, just side to side).
Weight:3
Ammo Weight:1

-----------------
Laser Rifle
-----------------
I says:  For most intents and purposes, this weapon is better than the AR.
It is also better than the SMG damagewise; but costs much more AP
to shoot.
They says:  Everyone I know that doesn't like SMG or Warp rifle uses
this as their staple rifle.

Warp Rifle
----------------
I says:  Great damage (usually kills in 2 hits), nice accuracy on the aimed,
and the ability to blow chunks out of brick walls mark some of this
weapon's highlights.  No burst though.  Also, don't get triggerhappy.
Your ammo won't last long.
They says:  Most people are fans of the warp rifle, but the "no-rapid-fire"
thing rubs some people the wrong way.
The Game says: Arelian energy beam rifle.  Requires a power cell to
function.

Chain Gun
---------------

I says: Chain Gun is an underrated heavy weapon that can devestate
enemy emplacements.  Or it might not, thus dependability (or lack
thereof) is this gun's greatest weakness.  To me, it is worth it if you can
get in close.  If every bullet hits it's target on snapburst, 8*5=40 damage.
They says:  A lot of other people think the chain gun just isn't very useful.
I will agree with them when they say to use the rocket launcher if possible,
however.
The Game says:  Rapid firing heavy machine gun.

	Firing Mode 1-Snap Burst
	Shots-8, 1 ammo/shot
	Damage=5+skill*5%
	Accuracy= 10%+skill*2
	AP cost= 70%-skill*3%

	Firing Mode 2-Spread Burst
	Shots-12, 1 ammo/shot
	Damage= 5+skill*5%
	Accuracy=10%+skill*2
	AP cost= 90% -skill*3

Though the weapon compendium is incomplete, I will be putting it on

You- if nobody read this (as may well be the case) there would be no
