Description
Latest Update
Fixed animation issue with Backlash, Annihilation Field will no longer reproduce in a soldier's ability summary in the field.

Warp your surroundings with dark energy with the Biotic Class! Spec yourself as a Vanguard that charges into the fray, an Adept that can attack from afar, or a Guardian that can take a lot of incoming fire.

NOTE: This class is designed with three columns in mind, please check out mods like Musashi's LW Promotion Screen for Vanilla XCOM 2 or Pavonis's Long War Perk Pack for replacement perk tree views.

Biotics are somewhat akin to psi-operatives, their measurement of strength is similar to psi-operatives for instance.

However, biotics are the opposite of psi-ops in one key area: biotics are effectively born, not trained.

You will only able to gain biotics through either rookies lucky enough to be able to grow their biotic powers, or from resistance fighters XCOM can gain as reward units as they fight against ADVENT. This class will not appear as an option in the Guerilla Training School.

To see perk tree details, go here.

Items

Biotics also have their own secondary weapon, biotic amps, which have the following requirements:

Biotic Amp - requires that a capable biotic be found among XCOM forces, or recruited from the resistance.

Advanced Biotic Amp - Requires Psionics to be researched.

In a vanilla game, the schematic costs are 70 supplies, 10 elerium dust and alloys, and 2 sectoid corpses.

In LW2, the amps cost 35 supplies and 2 alloys.

Elerium Biotic Amp

In a vanilla game, this requires the Gatekeeper autopsy. Schematic costs 200 supplies, 10 alloys, 15 elerium dust, and a Gatekeeper corpse.

In LW2, this requires the Elerium and Psionics techs. Every amp costs 85 supplies, 5 alloys and elerium dust, and one elerium core.

This Mod Supports:
Primary Pistols - Biotics can use Musashi's Primary Pistols, if installed.

Alien Hunters - Biotic Traversal uses the Icarus suit's animations if this DLC is installed.

My XComGameState_Unit Override - Found here, this mod overrides XComGameState_Unit with various functions, one that allows custom classes to show the psi stat if applicable.


Known Issues
Adept's active abilities may not properly show up, if this is the case:

Try keeping the mod in its steam folder instead of moving it to the folder XCOM uses to load mods locally.

Unsubscribe and resubscribe to put the mod higher up in load order.

Known Questions
Which .ini do I have to edit for GTS availability?
XComClassData.ini, located at (where XCOM 2 is installed)\steamapps\workshop\content\268500\923865270\Config, change NumInForcedDeck to 4. This will enable GTS training for the class. Will also make it work with Commander's Choice.

Thanks
Kvalyr for his invisible psi-amps mod, plus for helping me out when I was just starting out as a modder.

Musashi, for I used his void strike animations for this mod's biotic teleport and charge animations.

Xylthixlm, for his perk icon pack this mod uses.

LeaderEnemyBoss, for letting me use Singularity from his mod for this mod's Singularity.

E X T R A T H I C C, for providing sounds from the ME games in a usable format

and EA and Bioware, for making and publishing the Mass Effect series that I've put approximately too much hours into.

The Biotic Charge attack is broken. Each use causes my game to crash. Any help resolving the issue.

Is there any way to force a character to be this class? Commander's Choice doesn't seem to work...I want to make an Asari Biotic...
