A long time ago I did play tactics and during the Great Bend mission (wipe all robots) I have the distinct memory that I found a “sneaking robot” on the SE junk yard. And after killing that one I did not had to kill the “pacification robot” which could then be salvaged for study and General Dekker would give me a positive debriefing. When I killed it, the debriefing would always be slightly reprimanding “you should have left some intact” etc.. (Note: I don't mean talking to the inhabitants for information, but in addition to that, a debriefing that specifically mentions that “the robot had been retrieved and scientists taking it apart”.) However, when I tried to reproduce it, years later, I never had that happen again (couldn't detect the sneaking robot). And killing the trapped pacification bot appeared to be mandatory to end the mission. It may be possible, though, that I played that first time without the patch (vanilla) and later with the official patch. But I never found the time to actually test it (playing all the way to Great Bend just to check). Has anyone experienced the same? Or any knowledge about this? I checked on Nukapedia but it doesn't mentioning anything about an alternative to killing the pacification bot (patched out or not). Did I imagine this, or was that “sneaking robot” in the game once?
