Also, alien packs DO roam around the map, just not all of them.

All of them CAN roam, but there is a limit of 5 monsters being 'active' at any one time on Impossible. (4 on classic, 3 on normal.)

If you use a mod to turn that limit off, things can get pretty hairy, as every monster in audio range will come see what's shooting the shit out of their ship. It's probably the most fun option to turn off in the game


This isn't quite true. I'm pretty certain that the limit is 5 on normal, and it's definitely above 5 on classic. I think I had 12 active at one point. It may have been 15. It was 4 or 5 groups that just kind of converged on me. Thank god for highest-level snipers.

I mean active as in "roaming." I should have explained that better.
