The Zone of Alienation mod is an adaptation of the renowned AMK mod. It is built on top of a specialized variant of AMK that uses a magazine system. From this premise, it has expanded to aim to include the following:
It is absolutely imperative that you only fight controllers from range, either with a scoped weapon or rifle grenades.
If the above two options are not available, or the controller is in a confined area, (this often happens since they tend to wander around aimlessly like Alzheimer's patients;) your only options in fighting them in close range are to use Simbion artifacts and hand grenades, if it's not possible to kill them in such an instance, flee.
