I just finished my first crash site mission and recovered 3 plasma rifles. However, I don't see them as available to equip on the soldiers in my base. Is there a way I can use captured enemy weapons?
Prior to using alien tech you need to research it. Quote:
In order to start a research project you simply need to select a project and let your scientists get to work. However in order to start the research you need the following.
- A research project.
- A Laboratory.
You will also need any minimum resources needed to start the project, if the project needs any prior resources, for example researching an Alien weapon requires you have that weapon in your stores.
