Heavy Weapons

In order to use a heavy weapon a soldier must be equipped with an EXO or WAR Suit.

Weapon Parts

Weapon mods come in 3(?) qualities: Normal, Advanced, and Superior, each offering better results over the previous one. So far,

Weapon mods can be replaced, but cannot be reused, and thus consideration should be taken before immediately modding up a weapon.

Each weapon can field only a limited number of mods; the Africa continent bonus "Armed to the Teeth" gives you one extra mod slot on all weapons.

The following mods are known so far:

Stock: Grants 1, 2, or 3 damage on a miss. Auto-loader: First 1, 2, or 3 reloads on a mission are free(actionless). Expanded Magazine: Increases ammo by 1, 2, or 3 slots. Scope: Increases aim by 5, 10, or 15%. Laser Sight: As Scope, but for Crit chance. Repeater: Offers 5, 10, or 15% chance of an instant kill.

Weapon part use

Autoloaders are probably best equipped on sharpshooters, as they cannot reload and then fire their sniper rifle; the free reloads bypass this limitation.

Expanded Magazine likely should go to Grenadiers, especially if you plan to go for the higher tier abilities which use three ammo each shot. Larger magazine makes it more likely you'll have the ammo for it, and it's not as limited as an autoloader.
