Defense Matrix Information

  • Staffing Bonus: Staffing an Engineer in this facility improves the stats of the defense turrets installed. 
  • This facility is not as essential early on in the game, so it may be useful to put off its construction until later when you encounter Avenger defense scenarios.
  • This facility is especially useful when encountering the Dark Event Hunt XCOM if you are unable to complete the appropriate Guerrilla Ops to counter it.
