From UFOpaedia
Jump to navigation Jump to search
  • Medals can now be assigned to soldiers on the Enemy Within DLC. They appear as a new option in the Barracks menu.
  • Medals will be received upon completing certain objectives on missions. There is a cap on the number of medals that can be present on the entire pool of live soldiers.
  • The name of the medals can be changed and there is a choice between 2 options that will increase the soldier's stats upon receiving it.
  • There is a limit of the number of medals that can be issued. However, if soldiers with medals are killed the medal will be available again for awards 2 missions afterwards.
    • Soldiers who are dismissed (rather than killed) take their medals with them, effectively removing those medals from your pool forever.
  • Will bonus from medals does not affect psi combat.
    • Thus, if your soldiers are immune to panic due to Defender's Medals or Neural Damping, you can consider ignoring medal effects that improve will.
  • If using savescumming and Hidden Potential to get the most out of leveling, keep in mind that some of the medal powers will change the stats of your soldiers.
