All Cheats and Tips - Latest First.

Easy 'Heavy Metal' Achievement

To be allowed to research Experimental Heavy Weapons and Experimental Powered weapons you must first research the EXO and War Suits from the Proving Grounds. When you do this enough times you will be able to obtain one of each of the following weapons.
Heavy Weapons (requires EXO Suit)
Rocket Launcher (unlocked EXO Suit is researched)
Shredder Gun
Powered Weapons (requires EXO or WAR Suit)
Blaster Launcher
Hellfire Projector
Plasma Blaster

Easy 'Brutal Collection' Achievement

When you Skulljack/Skullmine ALL 4 different ADVENT soldier types listed below you will get the 'Brutal Collection' Achievement. The hacking outcome does not matter.
Officer (the red unit). This is story related.
Stun Lancer (unit with the sword)
Shieldbearer (unit with white armor)


You cannot rely on the same 4-6 soldiers for every mission. Even if you keep them alive they will eventually get wounded and some wounds can take a long time to heal. Look to have a roster of between 10-12 veteran soldiers by using the early missions to give everyone in your squad experience and a specialisation.

Unlock Heroes

At the 'Customisation' menu go to 'Character Info' menu and enter the following names (without the quotes) to unlock the corresponding hero. These cheats will only work in the Single-Player campaign and disables the ability to earn Achievements, they also remove ALL your previous soldiers' attributes. Note: Beaglerush must be put into the nickname field instead of the First and Last name like the other two.
Beaglerush (Grenadier):
Enter 'Beaglerush' (nickname).
Peter Van Hoorn (Assault Build Ranger Colonel):
Enter 'Peter Van Hoorn'
Sid Meier (Psi Operative Magnus):
Enter 'Sid Meier'
