XComEW Meld Recombination

Meld Recombination is a new research project introduced in XCOM: Enemy Within.

In-Game DescriptionEdit


The invaders appear to have deployed canisters of this strange substance in human-populated areas, perhaps as an experiment. It might be a weapon of some kind. Further analysis could shed light on its potential dangers and applications.

Project ReportEdit

Codename: Purity

This amazing material's most salient feature is its versatility. In early testing, we were able to devise several methods that allow for direct manipulation of the Meld substance and its physiochemical properties. While searching our records for any references to a material with similar properties, I uncovered a number of redacted data stores created in the 1960s, but much of that information appears to be lost. In any case, the advances we've made should allow for a wide range of applications in the fields of genetic modification and cybernetic enhancement, although we will need to build dedicated facilities to enable these potential research pathways. It is probable that the invaders are more familiar with Meld than we are, and may already be fielding combat elements that take full advantage of its capabilities.
