Help, what's the best way to force a Sectoid to relinquish mind control on one of my units? Bullets and melee are ok, but the % chance to hit is killing me as it's often that it misses and I take serious damage the next turn.


Flashbangs are your answer, as a flashbang that explodes in range of a Sectoid will 100% of the time force the Sectoid to relinquish mind control over a teammates.

Note that once done so, the Sectoid will no longer be able to use any alien abilities and will default to ranged weaponry.

    Flashbanging sectoids also gets rid of psi zombies quite handily. – Fambida Feb 5 '16 at 20:06
