I am early in my first playthrough of XCOM: Enemy Within, and it seems that one of the limiting / balancing factors in MEC performance is ammunition: The minigun seems to only carry ammo for two shots, and a single use of Collateral Damage exhausts it. What ways are there to improve the number of shots that a MEC can get between reloading?
- Does the Ammo Conservation foundry upgrade apply to MECs?
- Is there something in the MEC skill tree to help with this?
- Are future MEC weapons more ammunition-efficient than the Minigun?
