War of the Chosen CPU Custom Class

Update 15/09/2017

(Bugfix) Added lines to the code that should allow special ammo to be used with HDD.

(Bugfix) Missed shots dealt 2 damage with HDD active. There’s now a check to see if you deal damage before applying the +2.

Class Overview

The CPU is designed to be an offensive class, combining the stat boots gained from their squaddie ability HDD with other skills to power them up and increase their hit chance.

The left tree is focused on abilities that provide strong sources of damage and firepower whereas the right tree leans more towards abilities that compliment both your teammates and the aggressive nature of the CPU class.

Changes From The Original Class

I wanted to take advantage of the changes in WotC, so I have added some new features and tweaks to skills that I felt needed to be buffed from the original versions.

2 new skills on a third skill tree named ‘Overclock’ – Distant Counter (Major Rank) and Overwhelm (Colonel Rank). Details can be found in the skill breakdown section. They can be purchased with AP.

– Can gain 4 AWC perks. These can be purchased from the training centre with AP (XCOM skill tree).
– Untouchable and Implacable removed from AWC pool for this class.
– Smite now deals damage and has a 50% stun chance. (Will disorient if stun fails)
– Sentient decreases opponent’s chance to hit you by 100% instead of a huge armor increase.
– Small spelling and grammatical tweaks.
