Status Effects (Chimera)

From UFOpaedia
Jump to navigation Jump to search

Some abilities or environmental hazards can inflict Status Effects. Both Chimera Squad agents and their enemies have access to such abilities.


Status Effects are unique character states which can be inflicted on members of the Chimera squad and opponents. They are usually inflicted with various skills, although this can also occur, for example, as a side effect of interacting with a burning area on a map. The red text on the screen informs you about receiving a new Status Effect. The Status Effect imposed on an agent or opponent may persist for one or more turns. It is usually possible to get rid of the status effects before they disappear on their own. Not every status "works" on every character, as some characters might be immune to certain Status Effects (eg. Torque and enemy vipers are immune to Poison, mechanical units are immune to Mental Effects etc).

While the timer is running, other units can use the Stabilize action to save the unit’s life and remove the timer, upgrading the unit to Unconscious.
