This mod allows units to use melee attacks while burning or disoriented.

As you may already know, abilities like Slash and Rend can be used while burning, but not while disoriented. Other skills, such as Stun Lance, can’t be used while burning or disoriented. And some, like Chryssalid Slash and Devastating Blow, can be used while burning or disoriented.

That’s quite an odd range of shooter conditions to place on these relatively similar melee abilities.

Hence, this mod equalizes nearly all melee abilities to use the same system of status effect exclusions as defined in XComStandardMelee.ini.

By default, it’s set to make melee usable under both conditions, but you can change that to make melee attacks unusable while burning, unusable while disoriented, or both.

This mod works both mid-campaign and mid-tactical.
