Surrender, or don't. I'm fine with either. Are you?


Axiom is an agent in XCOM: Chimera Squad.


Born and trained on an invasion transport ship, Axiom landed on Earth in 2015 and was among the first wave of alien invaders. Throughout the occupation, he provided security for high-value targets across numerous ADVENT city centers and facilities. After ADVENT’s surrender, he played a pivotal role in containing a chryssalid outbreak and limiting human casualties, earning him recognition from XCOM and eventually a place in their ranks.

Axiom masterfully controls his temper and uses his rage to fuel his strength during combat. He can smash cover, panic enemies during a Breach, and perform a devastating quake maneuver that damages all nearby enemies. You definitely don’t want to make him mad.[1]

Axiom's weapon of choice is a Shotgun.

  • If desired, Mindshield can be equipped on Axiom to prevent him from permanently activating Berserk status during a mission. Alternatively, Overdrive Serum can also prevent Berserk from activating during its effective duration. These measures prevent Axiom from unexpectedly chasing down enemies, though it can also prevent opportunities to deal free damage from his rampage.
