We regret to inform you that the Muton and the Berserker are not the only hulking monstrosities you’ll encounter in XCOM 2, Commander. Our operatives in the field have relayed intelligence on the Andromedon, a new hybrid enemy unit combining the intelligence of organics with the strength of machinery.
Each Andromedon sits inside of an advanced Battlesuit, which our scientists believe helps them survive Earth’s atmosphere. The Battlesuit provides tactical benefits to the Andromedon: it can tear down most walls with ease and devastate XCOM soldiers with powerful melee strikes. Rangers, take note!
The Andromedon’s Battlesuit also has an internal coolant that corrodes organic tissue, and our recon teams have witnessed the creature launch this acidic liquid at its enemies. On impact, the liquid splatters and pools, further damaging any XCOM soldier caught within it.
Our observations have also revealed the Andromedon is immune to fire, poison and acid, so don’t bother wasting your enhanced ammunition when encountering this elite alien unit. We’ve even heard sporadic reports that the Andromedon’s Battlesuit can act independent of its host, though we’re unable to confirm at this time.
