XCOM 2 Official Mods

One of the most interesting announcements early this year was Firaxis’ official partnership with Long War Studios, developers of the popular Long War mod for XCOM: Enemy Unknown. According to the agreement, LWS has produced three mods for XCOM 2, all of which were available for free at launch.

1

SMG-series Weapon

SMG-series Weapon

This mod added three new submachine guns, one for each weapon tier: conventional, magnetic, and beam. SMGs provide bonuses to mobility, concealment, and close-range accuracy compared to the assault rifles, but there is a penalty to long-range accuracy and damage output.

Muton Centurion

Muton Centurion

With this add-on, you get a new alien unit – the Muton Centurion. It is stronger than base Muton and can grant bonuses to other alien units. They can be easily identified by their red armor and the special face mask.

XCOM Leader

XCOM Leader

This mod gives the special “Leader” path for XCOM soldiers, which can be unlocked via an upgrade to the Guerilla Tactics School. There is also a new pool of ten new abilities that Leaders can draw from.

The Toolbox

The Toolbox

But that’s not the end of the partnership. The companies have agreed on releasing five more mods, with one of them already available today – The Toolbox. The rest will be coming soon, but no specific timeframe has been given yet.
