X2WOTCCommunityHighlander v1.24.0

What is Highlander?

Highlander replaces a big portion of the game's code in order to make it more moddable and mod-compatible, as well as fix a lot of bugs.

As implied by the name, only one Highlander mod can be used at a time. Hence, the Highlander tries to address as many use cases as possible. Not counting fixing bugs, the Highlander does not change the behavior of the game, it merely provides ways for other mods to do so.

Everything that goes into Highlander undergoes rigorous testing and peer review.

How do I use the Highlander?

Subscribe to the mod and enable it in your mod launcher like you would any other. You should see the Highlander's name and current version appear in the lower right corner of the game's main menu screen.

Alien Hunters DLC Plugin

If you have Alien Hunters DLC installed and enabled, and you are using this version of the Highlander, then you also should install the [WOTC] Alien Hunters Community Highlander plugin as well.

Do NOT install that plugin if you do NOT have the Alien Hunters DLC.

Apparently I have editing rights for that troubleshooting page, so I adjusted it. Thanks for your report.

i found the solution for this crash on startup with this one on the troubleshoot:

The latter problem has been reported to be circumvented by copying all files from


or your respective installation location to

%USERPROFILE%\Documents\My Games\XCOM2 War of the Chosen\XComGame\CookedPCConsole\

the thing is this one is listed under "Log/main menu information" and not on the crash section of the troubleshoot page so people who is looking for a solution to their crash problem might have overlook it

this worked for me, i had a clean game instalation, no other mods, launched through the AWL and crashed everytime no matter what, then i did what he posted and worked perfectly, not sure why that happens cus i am not unto any programming myself

@4rrakis I'm using the WotC version on the WotC
Only the 2 Highlander enabled through AML
And yes, I have the DLC

Are you trying to start WotC or vanilla?
Do you have any other Highlander mods enabled (either through Steam workshop or in a local mod folder)?
Since you mention the AH Highlander: Do you have that dlc installed?

I still waiting for a fix for this problem...
Darkhen May 2 @ 11:53am 
Yes, I always do this when I start a new campaign...

Hi, I had the crash when loading the main manu, fix that and now the game crash after the cutscenes of the new game... Only this and the Alien Hunters Community Highlander is loaded in the game.

There are no "script extenders" for XCOM 2.
does this work with script extenders? Last time i played this game modded, i made through like half of the game before it started to slow down noticeably, which i later found out was because i didn't have a script extender. If you need specifics for which script extender, I'll be using whichever one is most popular rn unless you tell me its not compatible :)
