EXALT Soldiers

EXALT operates with a similar class structure as XCOM, fielding 4 types of soldiers: Sniper, Heavy, Operative (like Assault) and Medic. As the game progresses its units will be upgraded to Elite versions of all classes, using additional Genetic improvements and Class abilities. However, unlike XCOM, EXALT doesn't use MECs Troopers.

EXALT weaponry will be conventional at first, but starting in July (October in Second Wave's Marathon) they will field Elite units, upgrading their weapons to Lasers and using Gene Mods to enhance their soldiers. EXALT Elite units use the following EXALT Gene Mods, 3 of which are unique to them:

Depth Perception Depth Perception (Elite Sniper)

Adrenaline Surge Adrenaline Surge (Elite Operative)

Iron Skin Iron Skin (Elite Heavy)

Regen Pheromones Regen Pheromones (Elite Medic).

EXALT Deployment

Deployment of EXALT units is done differently from alien deployment. All maps used in Covert Operations missions will start with 2 pods of 3 EXALT units each (6 total), regardless of the difficulty level. The EXALT Base can have between 4 to 5 pods, depending on difficulty level.

Regular EXALT Pods will consist of a single Heavy, Sniper or Medic, chosen randomly, and 2 Operatives as Supports. Elite EXALT Pods all are composed of 3 different types of units, with the composition of the pod dependent of the Main unit (which is chosen randomly).

EXALT Pod Composition
Main Support 1 Support 2
Exalt Sniper Exalt Operative Exalt Operative
Exalt Heavy Exalt Operative Exalt Operative
Exalt Medic Exalt Operative Exalt Operative
Exalt Elite Operative Exalt Elite Heavy Exalt Elite Medic
Exalt Elite Sniper Exalt Elite Operative Exalt Elite Medic
Exalt Elite Heavy Exalt Elite Operative Exalt Elite Sniper
Exalt Elite Medic Exalt Elite Heavy Exalt Elite Sniper

On Covert Operations missions the game will introduce EXALT reinforcements (chosen randomly) when the Covert Operative has reached certain positions on the map. The additional units will enter the map in on different turns (waves), in different groups (assigned to different map areas) and can enter through 2 methods: drop in (on Overwatch) and walk in (no Overwatch).

Additional Notes

  • EXALT agents can't be captured since they'll suicide with a syringe if hit by an Arc Thrower. However, they can still be Mind Controlled.
  • Killing EXALT units sometimes makes them drop Weapon Fragments, though not many; usually half a dozen or so for a cleared-out mission.
  • Unlike XCOM's soldier pool, there appear to be no female EXALT agents. Make of that what you will.
