Balance Thoughts:

Supply/Intel rewards are not as relevant in the lategame. This mod helps offset that

Epic and Legendary Tier upgrades don't drop until the mid and late game, but are intentionally very powerful. Legendary tier upgrades are around as powerful as colonel level perks.

The two continent bonuses: Armed to the Teeth, Lock and Load would be a bit too powerful with this mod, and are consequently disabled by default. You can re-enable them via the INI file.



Source Overrides:

Includes MCM Support

Drop table Overrides:
BlackMarketLoot_01, BlackMarketLoot_02, BlackMarketLoot_03
BasicWeaponUpgrades, AdvancedWeaponUpgrades, SuperiorWeaponUpgrades
All ADVENT and Alien timed loot drop tables from vanilla.


Console Commands
GiveItemNickname(string SoldierName, string Nickname, string HexColor, int SlotNum)
Use to give an item a colored nickname
Soldier Name - "Firstname Lastname", capitalization matters!
Nickname - New nickname for your item
Hexcolor - New color for item name
SlotNum - 1 = armor, 2 = primary, 3 = secondary, 4 = heavy, 5 = utility, 9 = grenade, 10 = sim, 11 = ammo

UpgradeItemsForSchematic(string SchematicName)
you can use this to force any items to upgrade.
example: UpgradeItemsForSchematic AssaultRifle_BM_Schematic

Use in case you can't see your research


Q - How to I add weapons/armors from other mods to the lockbox drops?
A - Please give this link to the author of the other mod if that mod doesn't already add their items to my loot mod automatically.
You can also edit the INI yourself to add new items to lockbox drops as well.

Q - How do I attach upgrades to sidearms and armor?
A - You will need all the required mods, listed in the required mods section

Q - How do I get randomized appearances for sidearms?
A - You will need my highlander mod, which is only available on nexus (Workshop won't let me upload it)

Q - I'm not getting any drops!
A - Try deleting the following folder:
C:\Users\User\Documents\My Games\XCOM2\XComGame\Config

Q - How do I change drop rates and other settings?
A - You can find the relevant ini files in the following directory:

Q - Why are my swords showing +20/100 aim?
A - Not caused by this mod, probably caused by balanced ranger swords or something else in your load order.

Q - I'm getting so much more / so much less loot now, please fix!
A - This mod doesn't alter drop rates of vanilla items. Either another mod is doing that or it's just RNG.

Q - I can't open my loot crates!
A - Use the GrimyLootUpdateResearch console command.
No it doesn't disable your achievements.

This Mod looks like it wont want you to end the game until you get everything perfect

@Conescaper could be a mod conflict or you can change mods to find out what you like by adding more slots
Conescaper Mar 10 @ 1:18pm 
One of the things about lockboxes is that the items typically have one more slot than usual.
This doesn't seem to be the case for swords - is this intentional? or am I just unlucky?

Requires a WOTC mod as well but i do not have WOTC so does that mean i can't use this mod now? or am i able to subscribe to both the mods and use w/out WOTC?

if anyone knows why, it doesnt seem like armor (and maybe even weapon) upgrades do anything, stats dont update on soldier screen and I know health boosts dont work, the only thing I think that may be a conflict is the armor is armor mod, making armor give armor instead of hp, any ideas?

Great mod for the base game (have not tested it on WotC), adds alot of fun variety. Most, if not all, of the items you can get make sense and allow for deeper customization of your team. A sniper with the Run & Gun ability? Rupture on a heavy? Why not! There are many combinations possible and could give you the edge you need to pass that one critical mission without taking any casualties.

Important to note for hardcore players however is that while at the earlier stages of the game this mod doesn't do anything game-breaking but as you near the endgame stages while you have been collecting many weapon and armor mods it can make your squad overpowered. This is not a criticism, it is just something that can happen if you collect and equip too many of the more powerful bonuses. Use with caution if you want to preserve the original game's challenging difficulty. Alternatively you could use the mod to make your Commander or higher runs more forgiving.

That is needed for many Mods
