[Suggestion] Buffing Suppression Perk

Post by pingpong » Mon Nov 14, 2016 2:07 pm

Suppression, in its current form, in XCOM 2 is a very weak perk. As many have already pointed out, XCOM 2's AI seem to always run Suppression with the resulting shot missing. Given that 2 rounds are required, it is almost always better to Overwatch instead. As you may recall, there was a similar discussion with XCOM LW. Many of the reasons that were given for buffing Suppression in XCOM LW still applies for XCOM 2. However, the most important fact is that (as many have said in the past, including our favourite Youtuber, Beagle) the game is so much deeper and more fun using various strategies in conjunction with Suppression. I believe giving people more choices to play in ways that they want can only be a positive thing.

Though there used to be a mod to remove the OW penalty in Suppression, this does not work with LWPP. Could you please consider adding a mod or an option in the LWPP or LW Tool Box to eliminate the OW Penalty for Suppression.

Thank you for your kind attention.

Regards,

In LW_PerkPack.ini, you can give a bonus to suppression shots, look for SUPPRESSION_LW_SHOT_AIM_BONUS=0 in the file. It's additive, not multiplicative, so it can't quite do what you want, but you can get pretty close.
