I'm on a mission where I have to hack an access point, and my ranger has five health, he has been marked by an officer, he has low cover, the officer is advanced, it seems like every time I reset my only save (yes, I know that's stupid, but it's the only one) he dies, the officer is on the bottom left, my ranger (Klaus 'Anarchy' Stromberg) is on the bridge on the top right
This may seem irrelevant now but a while back xcom released the dark and gritty dlc enemy within which to many is considered the best part of this franchise, whether this is true or not is not important for this discussion what I want to know is simply why? It was great and all but it's theme seemed quickly abandoned, what drove them to make this dlc? Is it part of any particular timeline? And could we see a return of this type of theme? Post any theories or corrections you may have.( Note I will admit I have not played XCOM 2 but that does not change my position, that cartoony style kills any realism that enemy within had that could have made it scary or dark.)
Any body know what the formula is for xcom?
Doesnt matter really what game, I am trying to make a table top style game, and I think this formula is exceptionally well to use, for my idea!
Thanks in advance, and I hope someone can find out something!
So I was looking at reviews of the old xcom games and apparently a lot of old school players say that the newer games fail to live up to the fear factor of the original games, I personally agree with this the only really alien that was scary or memorable at all in enemy unknown was the cryssalid also I will point out I have not finished enemy within or played XCOM 2 so do correct me if I'm wrong about this but does anyone have any ideas how this could be solved?
I need help with Xcom 2 any advice would help like what upgrades and stuff etc
What do you guys think happened to zhang in xcom 2? I really hope that he would make a return as a playable character in the upcoming dlc
is there ANY mod for android version?
There is nothing in xcom onhere only xcom 2 can we fix that please?
I have Acer TravelMate X349-G2-M
8 GB RAM
i5 2.5 GHz to 3.1 GHz with turboboost
Intel HD Graphics 620
Do you guys niw if i can play xcom 2
So i bought Xcom enemy within on android and want someone to play with . Does anyone here have it ?
Hello, I purchased xcom war of the chosen for ps4 (not pro) and I have a lot of lag and have had several crashes. I was wondering if there is a fix for this? Thank you
Hello is this diacusion page ever going to get back in action the warhammer 40k page is almost never of ever this quiet.
We need more activate here we rarly get new discusiona
Where can i download xcom 2?
Me playing xcom enemy unknown: Kills both sectopods.
*heals up troops*
Me: Moves up to last room.
Me: Where's the muton elites?
Me:Ok *Lines up troops to enter final room*
Game: Oh sorry we didn't spawn in the muton elites. Therefore your gonna have to restart >:)
Me: OH MY GOD Swear to yeezy. If I have to restart this Im deleting the save of this mission and just gonna keep playing the game normally and im not playing the temple ship assault no more.
Game: Welp that's our fault so rip.
Me now: Deletes save
Go back to geoscape.
Me: Im not playing the last mission fuck that.
I'm thinking of making all of my soldiers look like XCOM Base Security personnel, caps and all. Trying to work out what colour they made the armour (from the colours you can choose in the customisation menu. Any ideas?
Mine is the hunter I love his disregard for advent and some of his lines that he says
I have a reaper with a superior repeater and a superior on her gun who whenever I use the shoot the whole clip she gets a instant kill on the first or second shot and when I got the devastate ability I got a gate keeper and the warlock summoned 2 berserker so I activated the ability and all of them got instant killed do reapers have a buff
So i wanna ask something out of curiousity. I think the xcom games might have a lovecraftian theme like the terror from the deep or possibly xcom 3 in the future. Does that mean that there is no existing monotheistic god in the games' universe?
so it says here on the wiki that it's Green for an General, however when I've played missions to kill the general the armor is Orange or Black. I don't know if this is an error but I've seen multiple color hues of the General.
Hi all, other than XCOM, is there any good turn based strategy game? With almost similar game mechanics
I’ve been playing xcom enemy within but I can’t understand how to keep panic down it’s really annoying and hard to deal with I need some tips how to reduce the panic.
is the game canon to enemy unknown and xcom 2
İ am just really curious about it to me both are equally unique for em
What does the XCOM directive "Survive. Adapt. Win." mean exactly?
What does other people with is the best mech I do not have enemy within so I have no idea
Wots peoples favourite class of soldier? Mines sniper from enemy within, luv in the zone
I think that xcom 2 is very heavy compared to the 1st
I have not gotten very far into Xcom enemy unknown but I wonder what other people think it the most anoyong alien so far for me it is the insect looking ones I just blanked on its name owl but they are so incredible annoying.
Did anyone play the Bureau it was like xcom but a 3rd person shooter but the lore was like completely different. So I was really confused when I played xcom 2 without playing the original xcom because in the bureau silicoids were these green subservient aliens and it was psion commanders who mind controlled you. It was also the outsiders who were the enemy not advent but from playing quite a bit of xcom 2 I have figured out the gist of it. Anyway just wanted to know if I wasn't the only human on earth to have played it.
Just started campaign last night. I am loving itt!!
Ive been plqying xcom 2 for some time now. I can say it is my favorite game. I play on xbox1. Is anyone interested in playing sometime in the near future online? Very happy i found this app.
I know xcom isn't as popular as it used to be but come on this should be more populated 😂 make this great again!!!
exactly what it says on the tin
Does anyone know how to stop the crashes?? I'm in late game and can't get out of the combat! It crashes almost every time! If it actually makes it thru, it will crash when I go to the world map!!!
I need tips and ideas on how to beat the chosen.
I would do it myself, but is there a way to update the front page to include WOTC?
I play XCOM 2 and the overwatch option is broken. I say this because when I fought a sectopod with bluescreen rounds on my sniper it missed when the sectopod moved only two steps to where it would be at a 100% hit for my two snipers and when they were in overwatch they always missed no matter what.
Does anyone else find even veteran hard? I’m having to swallow my pride and go for rookie. Started on legend, too hard. Thought ok, I’ll try commander, but nothing lower. All the hits despite being behind full cover, elevated and at narrow angle forced me down to veteran. Thought, ok a bit of a cop out, but says it’s a challenge appropriate for players familiar with xcom. After hours of trying and about 8 attempts, still losing soldiers in the same way as in commander I have resigned myself to the fact that I will have to ditch all sense of self-esteem and play rookie. Please, don’t judge me.
Seems like the Chosen have some kind of stage system and with each their appearance also changes...can someone pitch in and add some photos of those to show them?
Is the wait time, real world time wait?
Anyone checked the Archives on the Avenger yet...
There are more details and small hints abot the Chosen and the Factions and their leaders.
If I have a soldier who had more skills than the numbers to select your action, I can't finalize them without pressing the number. So if it is after the "0" I don't get to use it whether I right-click or double click.
Is that a glitch?
In the notes for alien hunters, it says that they can only spawn after you complete the mission. In the fourth mission I was stopped by the viper king (or whatever his name is) and I had not done the mission to unlock it yet. Anyone else have this happen to them?
Hey everyone. I'm new to this any suggestions about data? Mine got taken... thanks
Here's another link to the 2nd video on the series I'm running, hope you enjoy it as much as I am playing it 😂
So I've decided to finally play XCom 2 and put it on my channel, by no means am I an expert at 2 as it's the 1st time playing it, so check out the link and if you like what ya see don't for get to like as the more likes the more people will see it. You can subscribe too the choice is yours, cheers for taking the time.
Alien Hunters are a pain in the ass, simple as that. They've killed more of my veteran squad members than I can count. I'm wondering are the armor upgrades and special weapons worth the major head ache?
Can anyone tell me in detail how the destructible cover works? Like if cover has hit points or is it a % chance to be destroyed? Been trying to figure it out for about 2 hours.
Ao if in XCOM Enemy Unknown was the project reactevated, when was XCOM activated the first time and on what occasion?
Hey everyone, if anyone's actually still here, there appears to be some differentiation in units that might be based on the difficulty level, and they appear to clash together in articles (i.e. Avatars in the final mission ignoring Solace with their Mind Control which I found to not be the case on Veteran, Berserkers still being able to melee attack while burning on Legend difficulty). Should anyone find conflicting information in game with wiki articles, change the difficulty to check if the information is still valid.
I have no idea if this is actually the case or if there is simply false information on the wiki, but if anyone can find this out for me, that would be great. Thanks in advance.
hey guys! I am playing ew since a few days (it's free on xbox one) and I am at the point where I have to shoot down the overseer. The hyper scanner just got active and the very first overseer came up (USA). I decided to not to shot it down because I only got laser weapons. So I scan forward, and as soon as I hit the scan button, a second overseer came up (Argentina), and now there is two of them at the same time. Unfortunatly I can't shoot down booth and see if it's possibly the complete the raid 2 times, because in south america, I only have a raven with laser cannon.
Tips on how to prolong enemy progress
can someone give me tips how to kill this stupid archon queen
Hey everyone, would someone be willing to run a quick game with me on Xbox 1? Attempting to get all achievements and the multiplayer is completely dead for this game
Could some one tell me how to change languages in xcom enemy income?
I'm new to xcom and playing it on iOS. Have managed to go through it decently but got to a point where I need alloys to build stuff and don't know how to get it.
I'd like to add to xcom2 content for this app. How can I go about it? What administrative hurdles must I jump over?
Hey I just started xcom 2 about a week ago and I'm not very good lol. It's not it being an rts it's the World management and strong enemies that I'm haveing trouble with. My play style is more explosions means more fun. Should I change my play style and how can I best manage my recourses. I'm always out of things that I need. Is that just how the game is supposed to be?
Since it's officially endorsed by 2K, can we expect to see a long war section?
Does anybody play on Android? If so let me know!!!
I was looking through the app store and I saw the X-com wiki and I was like "Wow, I play XCOM sooo... Why don't I join XCOM community too,". By the way I am from Fallout Wikipedia Wish everyone luck with HEADSHOTS and saving humanity)))
I Just started to play enemy within and came accross the seeker. So I wondered, What are the new aliens and What do They do?
So if you somehow don't know, Long War Studios (I think that's their name?) make massive and complex mods for XCOM and it makes the games significantly more fun IMO. So I wanted to ask, what are the best and "worst" long war mods in you guys' opinion?
Btw, if you haven't checked them out look them up on steam or just glance at XCOM 2's workshop page and you'll see them. You won't regret it
How good and how to use?
Hey guys I'm just gonna ask who you think is the most powerful hero in XCOM is.
So I started a new campaign on impossible where my goal is to finish the game without researching anything it's as hard as hell I want u guys to try this and tell me your experience
I'm having trouble with Sectopod and I would like the best strategy to destroy them without a lot of damage dealt to my troops
So heres some backstory. Awhile back I was strangely inspired by a mission in XCOM to write something, so I did. I read it now today again, and im quite proud of it. Id like to share it.
Commander eh? I remember being told that was a good thing. I remember being proud of it. My head was filled with dreams. I thought i would be a hero, a legend, and live a great life. I led the XCOM initiative. Those dreams feel like a lifetime ago. Truth is though, only a few months have passed. Those dreams i had when i was young and innocent about being a hero. I was so Gung ho, I felt like i was making a difference. But it isn't a few months ago its now. My shoulders are burdened by my men. I feel the weight of death and failure lingering at the center of my heart. I scream and rage at my troops yet in my very heart, I'm scared. I fear the deaths of my men and those caught in the crossfire. So many have died under my command, im beginning to question my judgement. The missions keep getting harder and harder, day by day. The wounded cry louder now. How could I lead them? I traded my own troop's humanity for just a little more firepower. Can they even be called human? Have I turned them into my enemies? Even after the war then what? How could they ever return to society, not after what they've seen and done. Some are psychics and mechs, are they human? I hear their screams at night, the nightmares haunt them. The dead and cries for help echo in their head. They may be soldiers on the outside tough as nails, but on the inside their humans soft and emotional. They face these challenges every waking day of their lives. Death beckons every mission they face, constantly making them ask, "Will I live to see another day?" I keep these thoughts in my mind and heart, locked deep within. If they saw this morale would plummet. They see me as a hero, a beacon. But can i keep bringing them victory? So many dead lie before me, and even more soon to come. All died because of my orders, hell even our own home isnt safe! They attacked and kill nearly bloody all of us! How can we ever recover and regain our footing? I go on because i simply must. What was once my dream, is now my responsibility, for the fate of Earth lies on my shoudlers. My command is what determines if we win or fail. They all are willing to give their lives and so am I. We won the battle but not the war. The aliens, well, they keep fighting and fighting til they cant anymore. But so will I and my men. The human spirit is stronger. The old me died when the aliens attacked our base, gone is the man filled with gung ho and innocence. I will show them what we can do. I will give up everything just for earths survival, whether its one man or a hundred. For i know the risks if i fail. They will not win. For me and my men shall shelter this world for future generations. I fight because the path behind me is littered with so many dead. If i fall to this weakness so will humanity. I go now to my men. They need some words of wisdom before they depart on their next mission. I have humanities best under my command. To win the war it'll take a whole lot more than a few men and a deranged commander.

Does anyone know how to upload mods on the Xbox 1
After completing XCOM 2, I looked back and considered by choices for the Alien Hunters DLC items. These are what I went for, but I'm curious what everyone else chose:
Icarus armour on a Ranger with the hunter's axe
R.A.G.E suit on an offence-oriented Specialist with the Bolt Caster
Serpent Suit on a defence-oriented Specialist
OK, so I found a cheat code for XBox that spawns old heroes from existing squad. I can get two out of the three codes to work. If you know how to get the Peter code to work, please let me know.
Searching through the wiki trying to find the differences between the attitudes of the soldiers. Can someone break them down for me.
Just got my Xbox one this past Sunday and a fresh copy of Xcom 2. Big fan since enemy unknown and enemy within. So I have this ragtag gang of soldiers and one specialist that couldn't shoot the broad side of a barn if it was on top of him. While on a mission to snatch up a hostile VIP the Bserker Queen shows up. After making a move she gets the ruler reaction move and pummels my ranger and leaves him bleeding out. Had my sniper take a shot at her to draw her into an ambush where everyone was waiting in over watch standby. Amazingly good old specialist(equipped with standard issue rifle with the repeater attachment 5% chance for critical) shot and killed the Queen Beserker with one shot😳!!!!!
Thankful as hell but still shocked as F@ck!!! Has anyone else had any similar experiences?
Amazing one shot one kill
I just started playing ps4 version got any tips (XCOM 2 btw)
Just got XCOM2 for XBox. Got any tips for a new player?
Has anyone had a chance to dig into it yet?
How useful are SPARKs early/late game? What skills do you recommend and how to best use them.
I just got it, but i need help. I honestly have no idea what i need to do. I played the first xcom thinking xcom 2 would be similar. Im just overwhelmed now since i find myself worried about everything unlike in the first xcom. Plus xcom 2 soldiers have even worse aim than soldiers from the 1st xcom. Is there like the options hidden potential and all soldiers arent created equal in xcom 2. Cause i loved those options in xcom 1 as it made my soldiers shoot better. All in all i have no idea what to do on the map. I can do battles well just not the campaign. I kinda hate the time limits and objectives in some missions. I hate the feeling of being forced to do stuff. I just need help.
How come I can give a rifle to a ranger but not a shotgun to a specialist
Is there any difference in ships and aircraft weapons stats between XCOM: Enemy Unknown and XCOM: Enemy Within DLC?
How can they hit almost impossible shots, but miss literal easy shots despite they are the best humanity has to offer? Like why are you a sniper yet you miss all your shots. This is a joke btw.
What is the name of the rifle that John Bradford hold when he went to investigate the site to look for Vahlen in the Alien Hunters DLC?
I just received enemy within dose this app help with that game, id imagine the base or bulk of content here would apply seeing as E. W. Is an expansion
Is bureau worth it in your opinion?
How do i manually delete an empty/redundant/mislabeled category from the cat-tree or article?
Is the commanders avatar statistically better than a fully ranked psi operative?
In xcom enemy Unknown, what is steam used for in your base, and how do you build a workshop?
A soldier is standing right behind an enemy with a 99% chance to hit at point blank range. The soldier pulls out a pistol has steady aim and... Moves the gun to the left and misses the shot.
Can I increase will on soldiers in XCOM: Enemy Within
I'm still very confused on how the random new ability gain works when you have the advanced warfare center... Is it random when it happens or do I have to retrain soldiers to get it?
Ok so I am going to get Xcom enemy within on iPad. So for the sharpshooter class(aka sniper)what are the best abilities to get? Please answer and if you do thanks.
My first Alien Base raid on Enemy Within has a screen with an OK button on it that wont clear. I cant do anything with my troops except end turn. I reload and re-enter but the pop up window is there no matter what. Any ideas why or what I can do to clear it?
Is the soldiers stats gain random?
What can i do to maximize the stats gain? Eg. Reload and do different action before ending the stage?
