Alien Hunters is a DLC in XCOM 2.
Alien Hunters, the second DLC pack for XCOM 2, adds exciting new gameplay content to your campaign. Available now for $9.99 or as part of the Reinforcement Pack, Alien Hunters features a narrative-driven mission, new weapons and armor, a new “Hunter’s Lodge” update to the Avenger’s Armory, plus three new “Ruler” alien units to combat.
- The new story Mission has XCOM investigating the rulers. Central Officer Bradford will provide intelligence and accompany your team on the mission. The alien rulers can appear on any mission. There is only one copy of each ruler per new game and killing them unlocks rewards. To access the mission you must start a new game. If you have a game already in progress you can obtain the new weapons, armor and rulers but will not be able to play the special mission.
- The new Weapons can be built once. They are powerful enough to challenge the rulers, but losing them in a mission means losing them forever.
- The new Armor can be obtained by performing an autopsy of a slain ruler. If you lose the suit during a mission, you cannot rebuild it.
