–Blueblood

Blueblood is an agent in XCOM: Chimera Squad.

Description[]

Blueblood spent his formative years in City 31, during the occupation, with his father, a third-generation police officer. When his father transitioned from police work to private investigation, Blueblood apprenticed with his father’s detective agency, helping the underserved. He joined 31PD in its inception.

Blueblood’s strengths are his strategic mind and his precision targeting, particularly with his special sidearm, the Lancer Pistol, which can blast through line-of-sight penalties and enemy cover bonuses.[1]

Blueblood's weapon of choice is his Lancer Pistol.

Tips[]

  • Keep in mind that the Lancer Pistol is a separate weapon, hence it does not benefit from weapon upgrades, or Ammo item bonuses.
  • Warm Welcome Disorientates even when the shot misses.
  • Ever Vigilant is triggered by any skill that moves Blueblood, including Torque's Tongue Pull or Shelter's Relocate.
  • Apply weapon upgrades based on which abilities you chose for Blueblood. Warm Welcome and Fond Farewell requires him to run out of ammo often, so an Autoloader is ideal, while the Phase Lance path uses a lot of ammo so Expanded Magazine is more useful.
  • Due to having Desperado, Blueblood does not benefit at all from equipping a Reflex Grip.
  • Consider the Artful Fathom Epic Pistol as his choice of weapon, as it enables to him to fire three times per round.
