There’s a Stormtrooper mod for XCOM 2 and it’s super appropriate

News

 

XCOM 2 is an unforgiving game, and I loved the hell out of it. It doesn’t go easy on you, instead it relies on cold, hard statistical likelihoods to decide your chances of success. Your soldiers will more often than not miss the perfect shot you were holding out for, even when the statistics were in your favour. It boarders on the ridiculous, because these people are supposedly trained soldiers yet still they can’t shoot for shit.

What I’m getting at here is your soldiers are practically Stormtroopers already, but at least now there’s a mod out there making it official.

She was a little short to be a Stormtrooper, so he’s hunching to make it less obvious.

The “Star Wars Helmets” mod, available on the Steam Workshop, adds helmet options for classic Stormtroopers, Scout Troopers, Force Awakens First Order Troopers, Mandalorians and Republic Commandos. All of the helmets can be customised in regards to colour and camouflage, and creator “Platoon” even added in a new face-paint option called “black collar” designed to cover up the neck gap between the helmet and shoulder pads for that authentic look.

Now this is a version of the Brady Bunch I would have actually watched.

There’s a ton of mods for XCOM 2 out there on the Steam Workshop for enthusiasts to explore, and even some brutal ones from the XCOM: The Long War creators for the masochists who enjoy that level of punishment. Do so at your own risk.
