Soldiers Weapons Long War.png

As with Long War 1, Long War 2 makes some changes to the weapons available to XCOM:

  • 5 tiers of primary weapons are available: Conventional, Laser, Magnetic, Coilgun and Plasma.
  • Secondary weapons are unique and tied to each class.
  • Rocket Launchers and Flamethrowers are no longer equippable as heavy weapons, they are now part of the Technical class secondary weapon. In turn, Technicals can't equip the rest of heavy weapons.
  • The Pistol is now an auxiliary weapon available for any soldier, equipped in their Utility slots.

Note that while weapons don't have a maximum range, soldiers have a limited sight range of 17 tiles, so unless they have Squadsight they can only shoot (and will only get the range modifier) up to 17 tiles away.

Weapon Tiers

XCOM2 TECH Modular Weapons.png

Conventional

The weapons XCOM starts with, they are unlimited in supply and have no special properties. Every default weapon is at this tier.

LW TECH LaserWeapons.png

Laser

The first upgraded weapons XCOM can research provide a +5 aim innate bonus in addition to higher base damage.

XCOM2 TECH Magnetized Weapons.png

Magnetic

The original second tier has been bumped up the tech tree with more damage but otherwise no special properties.

LW TECH CoilWeapons.png

Coilgun

The fourth tier of weapons are significantly more expensive to build, but in addition they ignore 1 point of armor, making them valuable against armored targets.

XCOM2 TECH PlasmaRifle.png

Plasma

The final tier of weapons need an Elerium Core to build (except the Storm Gun which only costs extra alloys) but they boast the highest damage, and any enemy hit by plasma weapons will take 1 additional damage from any other damage sources.

Primary Weapons

Submachine Guns

SMG-type weapons can be used by most classes. They do lower damage than assault rifles, have smaller clips and have more falloff at range, but increase mobility. They also slightly decrease infiltration time for the soldier carrying them.

Assault Rifles

Assault Rifles are the default primary weapon of XCOM soldiers, and can be used by any class save for Gunners and Sharpshooters. Extremely versatile and "middle of the road" in every way.

Cannons

Cannons are the only weapon available to Gunners, automatic rifleman specialist trained in using light machine gun or squad automatic weapon as part of a fireteam. They have higher damage compared to rifles, and larger clips. They suffer penalties at very short range, but nowhere near the extent that sniper rifles do.

Shotguns

Shotguns can be equipped by most soldiers in Long War 2. Assault soldiers have several perks specialising in them. They have higher damage than rifles, innate critical chance, high aim bonuses at short range but significant penalties at long range, making it necessary to get close.

Bolt Caster

The Bolt Caster is a unique weapon from the Alien Hunters DLC, with only one available per campaign. While it counts as an assault rifle, it has higher damage, aim and crit bonuses, shreds 1 armor and has a 20% chance to stun on a hit, which becomes 30% on Alien Rulers. As a counterbalance, it has only 1 shot available before having to reload, and it can't be modified with weapon upgrades.

Shadowkeeper

The Shadowkeeper is a unique weapon from the Alien Hunters DLC, with only one available per campaign. This pistol has slightly more average damage than normal pistols of the same tier, very short sound range, and innate hit and crit. Furthermore, it allows a special Shadowfall shot, that cannot crit, but if it kills, puts the wielder into concealment immediately.

Secondary Weapons

Secondary weapons are available only to Soldier classes. These weapons require specific training and each Soldier class can use only one type of special weapon.

Arc Throwers

The Arc Thrower is used by the Assault class. They do no damage, but will stun organic enemies if it hits. Importantly, it has normal range penalties, giving a shotgun equipped Assault an option to use at range.

Perks allow the Arc Thrower to deal armour-ignoring damage to mechanical enemies (MECs, Drones) and reduce their hack defense.

Heavy Weapons

There are two types of Heavy Weapons: those carried by the Technical class in their Gauntlet, and those used in Heavy Armor suits and SPARK BITs. Technicals cannot make use of the second even when wearing a Heavy suit, but they can carry extra ammo for their Gauntlet weapons.

The other Heavy Weapons have a single charge and fire in a cone 25 tiles long and 12 tiles wide. XCOM has infinite Shredder Guns at their disposal, but more advanced variants have to be researched and built.

Rocket Scatter

Rocket scatter is calculated by making a number of aim rolls against the maximum scatter distance and applying scatter of that number of tiles in a random direction. The maximum scatter is by default 4 tiles, reduced by 2 tiles by the Fire In The Hole ability, and increased by 2 tiles if the soldier has only one action remaining.

The aim rolls are based on the aim of the soldier, reduced by 30 if the soldier has only one action remaining, with a range penalty of 3 per tile further than 9.

So, if your Tech has 70 Aim innately and Fire In The Hole, hasn't moved and is taking a shot at a target 14 tiles away (-15), you want 2 rolls of 55%. You have a 30% chance of a direct hit and an 80% chance of getting 1 tile or less. Not bad. On the other hand if they moved before firing, you'll be making 4 rolls of 25%. Not great odds!

Rocket accuracy can further be increased by increasing the soldier's base aim. Modifiers based on the soldier's weapon will not effect it. For example, these effect the soldier's aim in general and will boost rocket accuracy:

For a counter-example, these effect effects are tied to weapons and don't effect rocket accuracy:

Weapon Upgrades

After researching Modular Weapons, most primary weapons will be available for upgrading. In Long War 2 weapon upgrades can be applied, replaced and removed freely.

Weapon upgrades can be obtained from ADVENT loot drops, mission rewards or bought from the Black Market, and after obtaining 3 of a single upgrade, a Proving Grounds project will be available to begin fabricating them.
