He wouldn't be Jon if he didn't have shitty luck. :)

(That figure didn't reflect his real contribution; he did a lot of softening up guys with more than 3 health in those missions, but someone else got most of the kills. He'd set 'em up, Rei or DJ would knock 'em down.)

Also, I will note that in the missions since that screenshot was taken, Shinji has proven to be absolutely lethal in clutch situations... with his sidearm. Boy's a god damn gunslinger. You move anywhere anyone in the squad can see you while he's on pistol overwatch, you die. In one mission he critted a full-health Sectoid from a rooftop half a block away. It was friggin' beautiful.

It's a toss-up, in my current play so far, which has been the most satisfying single moment: that one, the one where the Stun Lancer learned too late that maybe charging a man with a chaingun wasn't a great plan, or the time Asuka wiped out an entire reinforcement squad she couldn't see with a blind grenade throw on their in-turn, because they hadn't bothered to move from where the transport dropped them in the cutscene.

"Man alive, these things are stupid."
-Light cruiser Tenryū

--G.
When she threw the grenade, Asuka shouted, "Hier! Fangen Sie!" - which I think is a very polite way of saying, "Here! Catch!" Nice touch.
