- Battle Tactics - Stunlancers usually rush straight at the enemy to hit them with their Stun Lance (This is often a “suicide” attack as they sometimes will be surrounded by XCOM units if they attempt this manoeuvre), although they have sometimes been seen shooting at foes as well.
- Shock Lance Attack – Stunlancers rush at enemies to use they Shock Lance. This can disorientate, stun, or knock them unconscious. With enough attacks, it can also kill the victim.
- Dark Events - There are three different "Dark Events" that affect the abilities of the Stunlancer which include:
- Vigiliance - Increases the detection radii of enemy units
- Viper Rounds - Weapons are infused with Poison Rounds
