[WotC] Useful Autopsies - Complete Collection
 This topic has been pinned, so it's probably important

Have any ideas for other Useful Autopsies? Put there here for consideration. I hope to make every autopsy worth taking the time to do, and for the player to never be disappointed with what they get.

If you have any ideas, comment below.

What does anybody think about the Sectopod autopsy? It's always seemed odd to me that from this entire huge war machine, Tygan can only improve the little Gremlin. What else could the Sectopod autopsy unlock?

[WotC] Useful Autopsies (Ideas)

ADVENT Officer: Smoke Grenade Unlock

ADVENT Stun Lancer: Flashbang Grenade Unlock

ADVENT Shieldbearer: Plated Vest Unlock

ADVENT Turret: Talon Rounds Unlock & PCS: Perception

Andromedon: Acid Grenade Unlock

Spectre: Stasis Vest/Tracer Rounds Unlock

ADVENT Purifier: Dragon Rounds/Incendiary Grenade Unlock

Chryssalid: Vemon Rounds Unlock

ADVENT Preist: PCS: Focus

Gatekeeper: PCS: Conditioning

Muton Autopsy: A.P Rounds

Sectopod: PCS: Agility & PCS: Speed

Got stuck at the last one, Sectopod, but hey here you go, I tired to stick to "Lore/why whuold they have such" to them as well.

Such as:

Purifier: Will have all fire stuff.
Specttuer: Stasis and Trancer rounds, sound very "Nanite/nanobotish"
Muton: AP Rounds, Mutons love Armor shreding.
Turret: Talon Rounds & PCS From their seasors and loadout?
Gatekeeper: Can Regen HP, with its cybernetic suit?
Stun Lancer: He was to deal with Cowrds
Officer: Supports his team
Andromadon: He surely loves his acid
Crhyssaild: Vemon, they have alot of vemon stuff
Sheild Guy: Gonna get good armor?

As for the Sectopod, honesotly nothing in XCOM 2, really can be used, its best if he got something brand new, like a new item, rather then pre-stock, I can try think of some ideas, but some may not fix xcom itself.

Reason being, I put most of the items on mobs you bound to see early-late game, is so they are used, when the Sectopods start comeing around, you almost near the end. So it needs to be something new and worthwhile.

I can't think of much that already exists that would be a good fit for the Sectopod. I imagine improving SPARKs in some way would be the way to go there.

Is it possible to add a proving grounds project that keeps that wait time, but allows you to delibrately choose the reward?
So there isn't just a flood of special armaments.

Jumpy shoes / that one Thin man gene-mod from EW for Sectopod? Not very sensible, but it's an appropriately good reward for taking down such a big enemy.

@CircleOfPsi - Thanks for the list. The Spectre ideas are particularly interesting (I was clueless what to do with their autopsy before) and I love the idea of Chryssalids unlocking venom rounds.

@Weebos - It would make sense if it upgraded SPARKs. However, I hardly ever use them in my campaigns, so I'm not sure what would make a good change.

@YOUR FAMOUS GAY DAD - That jumping ability was always my favourite gene mod in EW, so I'd love to add it somehow. I was thinking the Chryssalid autopsy, or maybe Archon (jet boots).

Jet noots for Archon would be nice.
I also support the idea of craftable ammo. Hate the RNG

What about Sectoid's plasma gauntlet? Collect enough and build a big one to melt some faces!

would it be possible to make the Andromedon autopsy give acid grenades?

Hey, will you consider make this mod and the Useful Viper Autopsy mod to be compatible with the Tier 3 Grenades mod? Plus a Hellfire Projector button in Proving Grounds after complete the W.A.R. Suit Project?

several autopsies could do with improvement, but the ones I'd pick on are Spectres and Priests. Single Use items are pretty bad. Spectre could possibly unlock Bluescreen Rounds/Emp Bombs (could be unlocked by the Codex instead), and Priest could be a better Psi Amp (perhaps unlocking the Holy Warrior ability for XCOM, or otherwise changing the Advanced Psi Amp to be unlocked by this instead of Psionics)

Thanks everyone for your suggestions so far. I make sure to re-read all these whenever I consider a new Useful Autopsy.

I'm thinking of doing the Andromedon next. As well as allowing production of the acid grenade, it'd make sense if it allowed production of the hazmat vest as well (seeing as the whole thing is basically a big environment suit). However, the hazmat vest is pretty useless in the base game. How could I modify it to make it worth the utility slot? I look forward to your suggestions.

Maybe make it either A) Cure the statuses from adjecent teammates, possibly with a cooldown or B) Clear paths through the Statuses (like Fire thats still on the map, Acid Trails from Andromodon Shells, etc.)
