    Hi there

    I was thinking yesterday about a Haris of Xeodrones and Umbra to use the tactical awareness extra orders, the fireteam goes by for around 168 points for an Assault Hacker, Multi Rifle and Red Fury Xeodrones, we get 5 orders, 2 tags, a CC glass cannon, blitzens, plasma, a B5 shock weapon, a D14 Multi weapon, monofilament weapon... they are a bit frail for sure, but I think that they can surprise certain armies in certain missions, what do you think?

    The big problem with the Xeodron haris is that it doesn't have any weapons with high burst and a good range band over 24". Make sure you have other troops in your army list that can handle that kind of firefighting to make an opening to get the Xeos into the field.

    I also find the AHD Samaritan unnecessary, I go for the Breaker combi or Spitfire.

    By experience, a Hacker in that Fireteam is a liability. Go for Spitfire and and get an EVO.

    BTW, they go well with an Overdron...

    What's that? Other people have TAG links as well? But you're gonna do that FLYING THROUGH THE AIR ON A FEATHERED VELOCIRAPTOR FIRING MISSILES, BLITZENS, AND VORPAL BLADES IN EVERY WHICH DIRECTION WHILE PLAYING A CHINESE YO-YO AND CHUGGING A REDBULL VODKA AND ABSINTHE COCKTAIL.

    But Orpheus, where's your engin- *BLAM*
    YOU'RE a badass! Repeat after me! YOU. ARE. A. BAD. ASS. Engineering's for flat-footed HIPPIES who need to have EVERY SINGLE POSSIBILITY covered or else they have to sit in their cribs crying and begging for their sippy cups to be refilled with skrub-juice 'cause "OH, EVERYTHING'S SOOOOOO SCAAAAAAAARY!". I mean, what do you take me for, a Varuna, OSS, or TAK player!?

    NeglectedPeriodicGnatcatcher-size_restricted.gif

    But where's your camo- *BLAM*
    CAMO'S FOR PEOPLE WHO CAN'T AFFORD 8 SUPERJUMPING BADASSES FLYING THROUGH THE SKY. WE'RE GOING ON A TRIP ON OUR FAVORITE ROCKET SHIP, BUDDIIIIIEEEEEEESSSSSSS

    Isn't it extremely dangerous to have your Lt. in the Xeodron haris? Isn't my opponent going to be gunning for them anyways?

    @#$% yeah it's extremely dangerous! But you're not here for safety. You're here to run a tactical awareness TAG link and swing your military-grade, teseum-alloyed BALLS. Your "Safety" is superjumping onto a roof and going prone so you don't get your lieutenant's face blown off the second your enemy's turn starts although that's definitely NOT very cash money of you.
    (Real talk: You can always switch the Lt. to the rodok combi who's there to fill the 8"-16" rangeband. He's probably safer there 'cause you can AP mine around him, but that's your call)

    But what do I do if my opponent puts a camo marker in the midfield I'm really afraid of?
    Step 1) Superjump the rodoks nearby but around the corner
    Step dos) Intuitively place a mine around the corner in LoS of the camo marker
    Step 10^-2) Step around corner and discover
    Step 5.2435 repeating) If successfully discovered, liberally apply shotgun to face. If not, have another monkey try looking at it and repeat previous step
    Step -2) ??????
    Step 8) Profit

    But what if my opponent has a scary ARO piece pinning down the Xeo haris and outranging them?
    Step numero uno) Superjump your rodoks to get LoS to target
    Step 2) Apply missiles and/or .50 cal to the face
    Step 3) ????
    Step 4) Profit

    My opponent hid everything and has a bunch of warbands and other people ready to run forward in his active turn! What do I do? Can I get a refill on my skrubjuice? WAAAAAHHH!
    Take first turn, buckle up, run those rodoks forward into the midfield, spread 'em out a bit, and have the 2 rodoks that have them spam AP mines EVERYWHERE. Superjump back into cover and watch the FIREWORKS. What's that? Need more mines? Coordinate forward the ikadron and replenish everyone with EVEN MORE MINES. MORE MINES THAN ALL OF FINDING NEMO.

    But my opponent took first turn!
    Then high five your opponent on his luck and explode in a colossal, raging blaze of glory 'cause you are about to get nth-level WRECKED.

    This post reminded me very much of one of my favorite Netrunner Decks, the Can o' Whupass.

    I will admit that is definitely the MANLIER of the two, but I thought it would be a good idea to have a superjumping link team too :D Run the list anyways. You are gonna stand your ground like the great wall of china: 100% ineffective but too much of a monument for people to stop.

    Was Bit and the M-drone enough to secure your objective game?

    technically pilots are specialists as well, yeah, it's risky to eject and grab the objective, but since they're remote presence TAGs, if you'll lose the stalldrone you could reset.

    Oh can you explain, I was under the impression if you lose the stalldron, your tag will pretty much be inert for the rest of the game.


    Ignore this, just read it myself, pretty awesome

    OH I WANT TO SEND THAT MESSAGE TOO!

    As other said, i often abused of the Staldrons. And now that they do not break the Fireteam it is pretty straightforward.

    You have only fear of Camo/TO Assault Hacking Devices, any other thing can be confronted.
    Obviously this is NOT the list to bring in a "Highly Classified" game, but at least you'd give a VERY hard time to your opponent!

    Run it in highly classified and countermeasures anyways. The opponent can't win if ALL HIS SPECIALISTS ARE DEAD >:D

    This is the best thread of the forum in a long while. It has actually made me want to run onyx. Congrats, mates. May you ride eternal, shiny and chrome.
