The soul destroyers are a real pain, I've tried shooting them with rockets but they are too hard to hit and just ram my squads to death, how do I kill these monsters?

Unless you've significantly upgraded your rockets (which increases their range enormously), they're not going to be the best choice to combat the Soul Destroyer.

What worked for me was an issue of Quantity over Accuracy -- it doesn't matter if you only hit them with 1/10 attack - if you're launching 4 or 5 attacks per few seconds, you'll quickly get a lucky bounce.

So my advice for you is to spam grenades. You can get a pretty good barrage of explosions going (as long as you're not trying to attack uphill) that will mean a quick death for them. If, however, you're having trouble with the Soul Destroyer flying away from your attacks, your options are distinctly more limited (i.e., you can't get them to enter your grenade line).

In that case, it's probably best to build a turret, man it with darwinians, and let them take care of it for you.

My rockets and grenades are both version 3.0 but I might try grenades. Unfortunately there are no active trunk ports on the island so armour is out of the question. –  Ronan Forman Aug 25 '11 at 19:01

@Ronan - you might have to set up a continuous kamikaze squad assault - Soul Destroyers can't regenerate or respawn, so even if you have to go through 10+ squads to kill one, you won't have to deal with it again (on that level, anyway). –  Raven Dreamer Aug 25 '11 at 19:19
