  1. “As a secondary attack, the Bulwark can also fire off a concussive volley, a ranged attack with a very high chance to stun and biological or cyborg unit it hits for a single turn.”

    There’s your non-lethal rounds.


    • Also a dev reply from that same thread:

      “I guess I should have said this more clearly, but the thing about self-sufficiency is just to explain why they ride creatures instead of using vehicles. There’s no in game refueling and maintenance mechanics that actually simulate what I’m talking about there!”


  2. Nice discussion, as usual! With the latest updates and DLC I think I’m finally going to dive in and give ES2 another shot. It seems to be in much better shape lately. I bought it at launch, and it was so buggy and imbalanced then that it completely turned me off.
