Sectopod Autopsy is a research project in XCOM: Enemy Unknown.

In-Game Description[]


The engineering advancements found in this machine are remarkable - the joint articulation, weapons systems and targeting capabilities in particular are well beyond current military developments on Earth. The practical applications are staggering.

Initial Findings[]

This heavily-armored unit is fully mechanized, though we're still not sure if it has an organic component within.

Project Report[]

Codename: Halcyon

Although this robot is neither alive nor sentient, it is strangely self-aware of its surroundings. We've still uncovering the functional details for this "species," but from what we've seen so far, this machine is a masterpiece of technology. Based on our initial testing, we've discovered an extremely intricate program that's implanted in their macro-processors. This combat control program, combined with the Sectopods imposing ten meter frame, makes for an extremely dangerous weapon. Powered by the same energy source that fuels the alien craft, these machines wield unparalleled destructive power. Perhaps the biggest mystery is the secret of how they're being controlled. Additional information regarding this specimen's tactical abilities may be available in the field if another of these machines is targeted in the Unit Analysis View.
