Yeah, they're brutal. My Grenadiers have Shred solely and alone to deal with these bastards. 2 armor is super OP against assault rifles... And that Lockdown ability is just...
I tried to hack one, but the odds are awful. 50% chance to stun, or 20% chance to takeover (temporarily). Hackers have this nebulous "tech level" and it hasn't been explained to me how to increase it.
No idea. I thought it went up with level, but maybe not. Eraser's suggestions seem pretty likely.
My hack skill for a mech is at 67% to shut them down, which is a pretty decent chance.
