Despite its appearance and armament, a meager plasma pistol, the commander variant of sectoid is a serious threat if ignored. Gifted with far more psychic potential than their counterparts, they are able to lash out with their "Mind Fray" attack, capable of ignoring cover. However, its their ability to control the mind of an individual that truly makes them a terror. Never leave a commander standing if you can avoid it, otherwise, you may regret it. Your soldiers certainly will.
