Once I killed them, the game didn't crash. Also, the infantry guys can be in odd places. You know they're around when you hear your sensors beep, but no red dots are showing. Hope this helps.
To each powered-down mech are two infantry guys allocated as pilots.
The first wave is hidden in buildings relatively close to the mech. The second wave is the group of reserve pilots. Both waves are triggered at the same time (alarm).
This is why your first objective should be to eliminate the reserve pilots.
They run all over the map and some might get stuck in the terrain. The game does not crash if the pilots allocated to a mech are dead because it simply does not power up. The pilots can create trouble when the mech they are supposed to run towards is destroyed. This is what I fixed with the latest updates.
Infantry type units do not show on the radar as dots.
