Limitations and Requirements
In order to receive genetic modifications a soldier must be of rank LCPL or higher.
MEC Troopers, Officers, and psionically trained soldiers are unable to undergo genetic modifications. Genetically modified soldiers cannot become officers or be psionically trained. Genetically modified soldiers can be augmented into MECs but doing so well remove all of their genetic modifications.
Gene Mod Bundling
Gene mods, when being applied to a soldier, will only take as long as the longest mod, and will only cost as many credits as the most expensive mod. Thus, it may be most practical to apply multiple genetic modifications to a soldier at the same time. This can save credits and time away from battle. Unlike the time and credit costs, the meld costs do stack cumulatively.
Gene Mod Interactions
- Dual Heart does not protect the Volunteer from mortal wounds. A fatal shot will kill him/her instead of triggering the perk. This behavior only pertains to the final mission, it is a vanilla mechanic.
- It is also possible to "switch" between any of two GeneMod types within each slot categories for a cost.
- Gene modded troopers lose their gene modded benefits when becoming a MEC.
