XCOM: Chimera Squad guides

Tips, tricks, and explainers for a crew of humans, aliens, and hybrids

XCOM: Chimera Squad is a game of systems within systems (within systems), and they’re all interconnected. They’re not all new, though. As we said in our XCOM: Chimera Squad review, it manages to successfully remix the franchise’s most vital elements into something fresh.

But managing all of those systems can be a lot to wrap your head around. You’re in charge of everything from keeping City 31 and its districts under control to your Agents’ weapon loadouts. Whether you’re a veteran of the series or a newcomer, we’ve got guides to help you out.

Check our or overview of everything to do in Chimera Squad’s Field Office headquarters and tips on managing District Unrest and City Anarchy to understand things better.

When you take on combat Missions, we’ve got an explainer for XCOM: Chimera Squad’s new Breach Mode, some general tips for combat, and a guide about using the Timeline to be the most efficient you can be in battle.
