I am trying to find the Anesthesia Specialist which is required for certain weapons. Apparently, it's a guy from mission number 10 which I have finished some time ago (I am around mission 30 now).

So since I finished mission 10, the guy (called "Malak") should be somewhere on my base. I scrolled through all my team members, but cannot find him.

What can I do? There are so many people on the base, it's hard to know if I missed him, I cannot figure out how better to search for him.

The only reason you would need those specialists are when you need them for research purposes. You don't need to be able to physically pick them out in your base, just having them somewhere in your research team should be enough.

First, you can determine if they are even in your staff by looking at the mission that contained him and look at the Obtainable Skills/Blueprints section. If the skill is dimmed out, you have someone who has that role on your staff, otherwise it will be white.

Obtainable Skills/Blueprints I only have a Tough Guy, but no Anesthesia, Mechatronics, or Transportation Specialist.

Once you are certain he's in your staff, you can go to Staff Management and Auto Assign your staff and take a quick look at your research team. Or if you had recently captured/recovered him, check your sickbay/brig. If you cannot find him immediately, you'll have to search through all of your staff.

Under the All Staff view, sort your staff by Skills (descending) and scroll over to the guys with wrenches. They'll appear near the top of your staff grouped together. Make sure you're in the display where you can view all your staff's skill and ability levels.

all staff sorted Found the guys with the wrenches.

Then when you've found the wrenches, change the display again to view the individual's stats and scroll through til you find your man.

Malak Found him.


He might've been automatically dismissed if you reached maximum capacity, if that's the case you'll have to hire him again in mission 10.

Otherwise, you can see your full list of soldiers, sort them by special ability, and look through the ones with R&D skills.

  • Usually guys that have skills that you haven't exploited yet won't get auto-dismissed. At least I remember that being true with translators. I had to manually dismiss them when I needed to make room in my staff. May 7, 2016 at 17:45
