XCOM 2’s Long War 2 Adds Coilguns Weapon Tier

on January 11, 2017 9:27 AM

In case you missed it, developer Pavonis Interactive (previously known as Long War Studios) and publisher 2K announced Long War 2 for XCOM 2, a follow up mod to the incredibly popular and extensive mod, Long War, for the previous XCOM game: XCOM: Enemy Unknown. 

That being said, yesterday, we finally got to learn a little bit about the mod, which still has little to no information. Specifically, 2K and Pavonis Interactive revealed a new type of weapon that Long War 2 will add, called Coliguns. The new armaments are a tier of weapons that rests above the current Mag weapon tier offered by Chief Shen and her team, but below the top-tier Beam weapons. Aka, they will be the second strongest weapons in the game.

As you would expect with anything XCOM related, Coliguns won’t come easy. Like the main games, Long War 2 is a well designed and balanced mod, and in order to get Coliguns one will have to put fourth “considerable investment.”

Currently, Long War 2 doesn’t have a release date. But it does have some new screenshots showing off Coliguns. You can check those out below:
