What should I do to make the difficulty stats "fair" for both sides?

Post by tetsuro1 »

Hi, everyone!

I just recently bought XCOM 2 and have found out that the game's difficulties (excluding Legend) come with many things that assist players in some minor ways.

Things like;
  • Increased Rookie health
  • Aim Assist
  • Aim bonuses
  • Alien Aim penalties

When I started playing, I set the difficulty to Veteran thinking it might be a "normal" difficulty of the game, where neither you nor the enemies get bonuses (or penalties) to health, damage, aim, etc. but it seems I was wrong, as according to the game's wiki, there are plenty of things below Legend that help players in minor ways.

Now, I'm wondering, does anyone know what can I do to make the game as "fair" and balanced as possible for both me and the enemies?

What files and values do I need to edit to achieve this?

So far, the only thing that I've found about something like this was the instructions found on this Steam page where you edit a couple of lines within the "DefaultGameCore.ini" file, but I'm wondering if there is something else to edit than that?

If you guys know how to do this, let me know.

Thanks, and apologies for the long post!
