Godmother is the consummate professional, a seasoned veteran who both delivers perfection and demands it from others. She could not be less interested in your nonsense.

"Of course my plan is 'by the book'. I wrote half the book." -Godmother

Godmother is a human and an available agent in XCOM: Chimera Squad.

Godmother wields a Shotgun and primarily functions as a run-and-gun damage dealer. That being said, her abilities and upgrade choices give her a fair degree of adaptability and can help her outflank enemies more effectively.

Tactical Advice

  • Flush only takes 1 action and does not end the turn, thus it is possible to shoot at the now coverless enemy in the same round.
  • Most of Godmother's abilities cost a lot of ammo, thus it is useful to give her an Autoloader or Expanded Magazine weapon upgrade.
  • Step Up triggers automatically after scoring a kill, regardless of the remaining ammo.
  • Though not mentioned in the description, Ventilate also does +1 base and maximum damage.


After going to ground with the nascent European resistance following the fall of Paris, Godmother provided operational training in guerrilla tactics after determining that direct resistance to ADVENT was likely to lead to reprisal attacks. She connected with X-COM in its leaner years and helped develop their training programs for new recruits. During the War for Liberation, Godmother continued her work as a field liason for the resistance groups. After the war, Godmother joined Reclamation to ensure its field-ready status.
