I would think that eliminating one of the Chosen forever should be a reward in itself, but the game threw me a couple of new unique weapons on top: the Assassin Arashi and the Assassin Katana. I understand that the katana, specifically, has these traits:
- It cannot miss.
- It has much higher damage than the fusion blade.
- It has 5 armor penetration.
That seems… overpowered. Even a Colonel with Blademaster and PCS: Superior Perception will quite frequently miss Bladestorm attacks, which would make this katana thingy quite the tool against melee enemies.
Is there a catch to this? I understand that it's one-of-a-kind and irreplaceable, but that was never a problem for me with any of the Alien Hunters stuff.
