The ADVENT MEC is a completely autonomous bipedal mechanized robotic soldier. Covered top to bottom in heavy armor, and outfitted with powerful micro-missiles, the ADVENT MEC has the potential to soak up damage while devastating grouped soldiers in cover.
The fully mechanical ADVENT MEC features armor and more health than your ordinary organic ADVENT soldier. Success against this mechanized menace requires adept usage of shredding, bluescreen rounds, EMP grenades, and of course, hacking. By successfully hacking the ADVENT MEC, you can turn it upon its masters during the most critical of combat situations. Beware though, as failure to successfully hack the MEC will make it more formidable.
The ADVENT MEC is a powerful foe that can decimate your squad, and represents a risk/reward situation as a potential hacking target that can turn the tide of battle, for better or worse.
