Disoriented is a status effect in XCOM 2.
While Disoriented, a unit gains a -20 penalty to Aim, -30 penalty to Will, reduces Mobility by 6, and restricts use of most specialized abilities. It will also cancel Overwatch, Suppression, Mind Control, and will end Psi Reanimation if used on the creator of the Psi Zombie.
Disoriented lasts two turns after being applied, and cannot stack turns with itself if applied during the effect.
