General research | New technology XCOM 2 Guide

Similarly to the previous installment of the franchise, XCOM 2 gives the player access to numerous research projects, which unlock new weapons, armors and other pieces of equipment. Without proper planning and selecting most important projects from dozens of options, you can quickly end up in a situation in which the enemies are simply too strong for your soldiers and further game will simply become impossible.

Below you can find a table representing all the possible research projects in the game - projects unlocked by them can be found in the following chapters.

Note

You should remember about a couple of things:

  • Items described as "new item" are the ones that can be made in the workshop and you only have to craft a single piece - all of your soldiers will be then given the specific type of equipment, a new weapon, armor, upgraded grenade, and so on.
  • However, some of the items are still created as a single piece, to use on a single soldier only. Those are new types of grenades, ammo, as well as the Battle Scanner, Skulljack, Mimic Beacon, Mind Shield, Medikit, Overdrive Serum, Proximity Mine.
  • Items described as "new project" are available from the Proving Ground facility and creating them gives you only a single piece of a given equipment - a single W.A.R. Suit for instance.
