In my playthrough, a B-i-a-J mind-controlled Chief DeSoto. Will the chief lose a regular AP or a combat AP or can I decide which one he loses due to mind control? Thanks
Unrelated question as well. when getting IQ overkills, you may use the rocketeer's personal ability. How does this fit in with DeSoto's Strafe ability. If I, for example, roll 2 successes when trying to subdue a thrall, can I use the overkill strafe ability to also subdue a thrall on an adjacent tile?
On the first question based on example on the page 23 i would say it is any AP, you choose.
On the second question - strafe lets you apply 1 hit to any Alien in line of sight and in range of a Weapon you are carrying. So you cannot subdue a second thrall with strafe but you could apply one hit to some other alien if comply with above requirements. Or you could just rescue that first thrall with this overkill.
