Runing on elite difficulty with completely untrained-in-ground bg 5 anf crew in a random explore mission was a fun way to get dozens of injuries on all of my crew. apparntly only affecting ground, moot and pointless. IS THIS what is to be "death penalty"? ubelievable
In all seriousness, there are some bugs which are being addressed, involving dual pistols on elite. That having been said, be sure to get your BOffs all trained up, with good gear (at least MK X greens), and have a solid understanding of your powers before going in to Elite difficulty.
