Advanced Warfare Center (XCOM2)
The (A)dvanced (W)arfare (C)enter is the medical bay of the Avenger where soldiers go to get healed up if they have been wounded in combat (they will be lying on the beds). It is not critical to get the AWC in order to proceed with the main story, but it's very useful due to its function as a medical lab. The earlier you get it, the more chances you have for soldiers to get an extra ability, so it's recommended to get it early.
(This facility has been rendered obsolete by the "War of the Chosen" DLC and has been broken down into the Infirmity and Training Center Facilities in said DLC upon updates to the game post DLC launch)
The AWC increases soldiers' healing rate by +50% (+100% with an assigned engineer) and allows respeccing soldiers' abilities. A soldier respeccing will be unavailable for 5 days. The AWC also gives each soldier a chance to learn an ability from the other soldier classes (except Psi Op skills) when they rank up.
These are some of the known skills a soldier can learn:
- Dead eye
- Rapid Fire
- Chain Shot
- Volatile Mix
- Covering Fire
- Deep Cover
- Lightning Reflexes
- Kill Zone
- Hail of Bullets
- Blast Padding
