In “Xcom 2: Alien Hunters” DLC, players will be fighting against stronger versions of certain enemies. They will also carry some of the best armors and weapons that can be used against them in future battles.

The problem is that these are monsters to defeat and it will be a difficult journey for players who will encounter them randomly in battle. Here are some Tips And Tricks to follow to be prepared and perhaps defeat them in those random encounters.

Slowly “crawl” the map

The first problem that players might face with the Alien Hunters DLC turned on is the random appearance of the Alien Rulers.

While it might look random to most people, they usually arrive in the midst of a heated battle. The best way to avoid such a problematic confrontation is to slowly “crawl” the map rather than rush through it all.

Crawling” is to slowly explore the map by small steps rather than rushing or expanding the fog of war right away. If there is a countdown, players only need to focus on the direction of the goal rather than exploring. If there is no countdown, then they would have to take down small enemy squads one by one.

Enemy squads usually come in two to three members, which will be easier to take down. It is important that they should not trigger the appearance of other squads because it will become a mess.

After defeating most of the squads, it will be easier to approach the Alien Rulers now.

Bring restrictive items and bait

Aside from a large health points bar from an Alien Ruler in “XCOM 2,” these aliens also pack a lot of damage. Their weapons can easily restrain and kill low-level soldiers, which will become a problem in finishing a mission.

To counter that, players will need to bring items that can restrict the movements of these Colossus monsters, and that can bait them to look the other way.

The freeze grenade that comes with Alien Hunters DLC will be an important item to bring in every mission. This item is especially useful against these monsters and can freeze them temporarily, which will be enough to let other soldiers damage the mid bosses.

The mimic beacon is also another important item to bring in missions in particular against these strong enemies. It will trick them into attacking the hologram instead, which will give players enough time to regroup or attack the monster.

Do not pursue

After inflicting enough damage or exchanging fire against these strong enemies in "XCOM 2," they usually would flee the battlefield and fight you another time. If your soldiers are strong enough and they have enough firepower, then it is important that you must defeat them before they appear in groups next time. If your soldiers are weakened, it is best that you let them flee and fight them another time because it might have consequences.

Alien Rulers are formidable enemies, and they can inflict a lot of damage against your soldiers and even kill them.

If your soldiers to survive a little longer, then let them flee and fight them another time with better weapons next time around. Hopefully, in the next fight, your soldiers are better equipped and stronger than before.
