This mod adds Musashi's Stealth Overhaul mechanics to bolt casters from Alien Hunters DLC, and allows any class that can use vektor rifles or assault rifles to carry them.

In order to facilitate that Bolt casters' weapon category is changed from "rifle" to "bolt_caster", which means they will not benefit from Assault Rifle breakthroughs anymore.



No known conflicts.

Does not require a new campaign start, but the mod will not take effect mid tactical mission.


This mod is highly configurable through configuration files located in:


Q: I don't want to use Stealth Overhaul, but I like the idea of having Reapers with bolt casters, can I use Stealth Bolt Casters just for that?
A: Yes, but you have to go through some motions first. If you try to use Stealth Bolt Casters without Stealth Overhaul your game will crash on launch. To avoid that, delete the following files or folders:
..\steamapps\workshop\content\268500\2281795840\Config\Base\XComEditor.ini ..\steamapps\workshop\content\268500\2281795840\Config\Base\XComEngine.ini ..\steamapps\workshop\content\268500\2281795840\Script\ (delete entire folder)

Alternatively, you can simply copy the contents of this mod's XComWeaponSkinReplacer.ini and XComWOTCOpenWeaponRestrictions.ini to configuration files from [WOTC] WSR Weapon Skin Replacer - Configuration and [WOTC] Open Class Weapon Restrictions Config respectively, and then unsubscribe from Stealth Bolt Casters altogether.


Thanks to Musashi for making Stealth Overhaul and making it configurable enough to make this mod possible.

If I add a Tactical Suppressor attachment to the Bolt Caster, does the reveal chance decrease?

Hello Iridar. I have all 4 submods activated but I get an Error at the startscreen inside the game. it says "wotc stealth crossbows missing required mod :(wotc) open weapon restriction....". looks like the dependencies are not correct named ?

wow. It's great! It's a lot nicer than a similar mod that I've made.
