Sectopods.

I never use psionics, because they are OP and break the game. And the blaster launcher has it's tactical limits. So I often find myself using the laser rifle's lazy older brother knowen as the heavy laser.

And I have to do so while being psionically hammered by ethreals.

I advise avoiding ethreals untill you are ready to face sectopods.

Get all funding nations within range of a hyperwave decoder, and give all interception craft plasma beams. This measn you'll never be forced to do an ethreal terror missons (Thank Xenu) because the plasma beam has a higher range than the weapons aboard alien terror ships, so you can shoot all of them down and just ignore them. If you can build mind sheilds in your bases you'll never have to deal with base defence missons either.

Just about anything from TFTD is bigger and nastier than anything you'll find in UFO Defense.

Take for example the Bio Drone, the TFTD equivalent of the cyberdisk. It's almost the same, but it only takes 1 square means that in addition to being able to move around a lot easier, it also takes less damage from explosives.

Or how about the Tentaculat. It's a flying chrysalid.

Or the Tasoth, which is like an Ethereal just with twice the health, and across the board higher stats.

Of the lot of em though the ones that always gave me the biggest problem were the Lobestermen. Only sure fire way to take em down is run up and get into melee with them. Ugh.

I hate Mutons... for now. I'm still playing Ufo defence and still didn't meet any psi alien so mutons are the most annoying: need 3 laser rifle shoots to die (plasma still in reserach), hard to capture alive and so on

My Avitar is related to this discussion.

Chrysalids, those are the guys that when spots i go "noo no nooooo!!" and immediately hope i had enough guys within range cuz nothing is more irritatiing that not only loosing ur colonel you spent so much time to train and rank but have him regrown into an alien to kill more of your own men.

ethereals. they are easy enough to kill when you see them, but until that point they create general havok among your men. chrysalids are a close second for me.

I hate the ones at the start because once the aliens stayed in the ufo and once one left the ufo and went to the other side of the map and kept shooting at my team.

Floaters, they are boring to fight against

Etherials. I cant even count how many sure wins have turned into horrible losses because of their PSY power!

One Alien Base attack comes to mind, with just 8 xcom soldiers left (all with Laser Rifles) 2 Etherials managed to panic 2 of my troopers into running right into the last Sectopod. They both became wall decorations.

Mind controling my best soldier who shot 2 more of my troops as I tried to finish the job. I killed 1 Etherial and the Sectopod, but lost my last soldier...to a mind controled soldier!!!!

BTW I am not counting TFTD

Crysalids. Note, I have only played the remake, so I have not touched the lobstermen.

I hate everything execept the Mutons, the mutons I enjoy as I can have tactical full out modernized combat with them, everything else will destroy my squad.

Sectoids will destroy your squad?

Gillmen are horrifiying.

Oh, but lobstermen? I like hugging them! It's so cute when they gouge out my pancreas.

Joking aside, I noted that you've not tried TFTD. Lobstermen are very amusing in the sense that they can shrug of explosive ordience better than Garrus Vakarian, but can be easily toppled by tazer and drill; things that aren't techniqally even weapons at all.
