Psionic Melee

After meeting the Templars, a few of XCOM's Psi Operatives took a liking to their ferocity in melee and started bringing shard gauntlets instead of psi amps into battle.

Using shard gauntlets on a Psi Operative doesn't grant focus or any of the other Templar abilities, but it does allow a pretty effective melee attack with a 100% hit rate. However the soldier's psi bonuses will be much less (and actually a penalty at conventional tier) due to the lack of a psi amp; attacks like Soulfire also do less damage with gauntlets equipped.

Special thanks to ObelixDk for making the animations used when soldiers don't have a psi amp equipped, and to Ginger for helping me debug the visualization code.

WOTC only.

Wellby default no, but the melle is a major bonus if you don't mind the debuff I mean. It has saved me quite a few times.

@tomomi1922 no they still use thier abilites. In fact you can choose to arm them with the gauntlets or psi amps (or whatever mod you have to replacing the psi amps).

hi PZ, can i know, is the reason why this gauntlet is a different item template is because the original templar gauntlet can only shows up in primary waapon slot?

Does this mean Psi Ops cannot use any ability beside a melee ability, without a way to retreat?

Although the gauntlets look the same, they're internally a totally different item template. It doesn't touch the actual Templar gauntlets at all.

Would this also give Templars a proper animation for Psi-Operative abilities? I gave one of my Templars stasis as an X-Com ability via I’m The Commander Here, but in-game it just recycles the machine pistol animation.
