    The Crawling Dread




    In a world hell–bent on killing your squad, Commanders, you need to know the enemy extremely well to keep most of your mercs alive.


    Luckily, our recon team is back with intel on some poisonous...


    Legs that spawn for days, bites that sting more than a Reaper pistol, arachnids will evolve as you continue to progress through the story and big swarms will often have leaders that are noticibely more powerful.


    The first type that you encounter will have 350 health, 500 damage, and 30% critical chance for each attack. It may not seem much, but the following guidelines are written primarily with overconfident blood.


    Rule №1: Watch Your Back


    You're getting cocky, your snipers are rushing ahead and think that Sentry mode or Defend will save them even from the end times. But then, your scout reaches the mission goal and your squad is instantly surrounded by the arachnids buried under your unsuspected troops.


    To avoid such surprises, try to stick together in groups of at least 2, move up as a single unit and save a couple of grenades just in case.


    Rule №2: Always Be Ready


    Thanks to a modern miracle of intense training and heavy troopers, there is a way to be ready for any unexpected company on 4+ legs.


    If you roll with Destroyers in your squad, make sure you have:



    Be Prepared! (Passive)

    Fires a shot at the first enemy that moves within 4 cells

    This skill will ensure that any new bug that dares to run past your trooper will be instantly removed from the game (still, 350 health).


    And if you prefer to have a solid comeback, teach your Defenders:



    Counterpunch (Passive)

    Fires a counterattack against first melee attacker each turn

    Using Dig In to provoke arachnids or simply being the first to get hit, you will return the favor and most certainly finish off the attacker.




    Rule №3: Learn & Share


    When you find an item or a skill particularly useful against arachnids, let everyone know by pressing on "Discuss" and help others survive in a harsh reality crawling with spiderbugs!


    Until next threat.

    Sure, the medic comes in handy when things go very wrong, but I have so far always pulled through without any deaths (that were not on purpose).

    Dr Crane is of the same opinion, and says I will not beat the currently last story missions with my current equipment and setup, but as I will not proceed until the level cap is raised, it really is a non-issue for now.

    I still hate spike wings more than any other creature in this game I honestly do, bloody nature had to come up with something that can come back to life.

    No need for hoping, it WILL happen sooner or later. I got my @ss handed to me by a swarm of spike wings in mind game and they took all but one of my people out..... And it was a scout medic who saved the day....... I had to wait a day for them to heal and most of them were K.I.A

    Knowing is half the battle. Having a good supply of items is a good idea. Like stun grenades. Try to oover prepare and be cautious. I haven't attempted it yet because I'm still working on upgrading my team.

    Knowledge gained without effort is meaningless.
