Profile
Race HUMAN
Class OPERATOR
Traits Utility, Electronic disruption
Weapon Rifle
It’s been said her bytes really bite. Her natural aptitude with technology is unmatched in XCOM, save for the abilities of her best friend, Lily Shen.

"Don't worry, we can fix it." -Patchwork

Patchwork is a human tech specialist and a playable agent in XCOM: Chimera Squad.

Patchwork excels at fighting mechanical enemies, either via direct damage or by hacking them; as a result, she is an excellent choice when fighting Sacred Coil. That being said, her Gremlin is able to cause consistent damage to multiple enemies with its Chaining Jolt ability and she can also provide combat support for her allies as well.

Tactical Advice

  • Unlike Torque's Bind skill, Patchwork's Stasis skill works on large enemies and/or bosses.
  • Using Stasis Field on the last active enemy in an encounter extends the encounter another turn - allowing allies to heal, and special abilities to cool down.
  • Armed with the Epic Weapon Impetuous Spire and upgraded with Superior Extended Magazine the weapon's Banish ability delivers six shots in a row against a single enemy on a full clip, albeit with slightly reduced Aim.

Bio

Patchwork lost her entire family during the invasion, as well as an arm and both of her legs. She eventually ended up in an ADVENT orphanage, where a gene therapy clinic built her prosthetic limbs so she could be used as proof of the aliens' benevolence in propaganda. However, her technical skills allowed her to discover evidence of ADVENT's true nature, and she engineered her own rescue by X-COM. She served as an engineer on the Avenger during the War for Liberation until a shortage of personnel required her to take up active duty; after the war's end, Lily Shen requested her transfer to Chimera Squad.
