Confers an additional item slot in inventory.

– In-Game Description, XCOM: Enemy Unknown

This ability is modified in XCOM: Enemy Within:

All limited-use items in your inventory receive one extra use.

– In-Game Description, XCOM: Enemy Within


The additional slot can be used to equip a second item, however it generally cannot be used to equip a duplicate of the same item. A few exceptions exist, including Frag GrenadesAlien Grenades, and Arc Throwers; doing so doubles the number of available uses.

XCOM: Enemy Within[]

This ability was modified to grant one additional use of most limited-use items in the soldier's inventory. This is due to the introduction of Tactical Rigging, which allows all (non-MEC Trooper) classes to carry two items.
