Xcom 2 released with 3 mods available from the guys that made The Long War mod for Xcom at launch. (Before launch, even, for those with preview copies) One of these mods introduced a new skill tree for high ranking soldiers that provide leadership themed bonuses. What skills can be learned, and what do they do?

    I'm kind of torn on how to ask/tag this question since the mod is semi-official. It's technically not part of the base game, but it's endorsed by the people that made the base game. Are there any relevant discussions on meta? Should there be a new one? – Fambida Feb 10 '16 at 3:52
  • Mods are okay as long as it's not a troubleshooting "help xcom crashes after installing x mod" – childe Feb 10 '16 at 4:37

  • Holy crap those are good bonuses. Would any of those stack with a second leader? – DCShannon Feb 10 '16 at 23:35

    You can't take two leaders on a mission at all. Be very careful with making multiple leaders. – user2357112 supports Monica Feb 11 '16 at 2:18
  • @user2357112 "Except in dire situations" states the game. I presume that is when the ufo is grounded and you have to defend with up to 10? people. – Sumurai8 Feb 12 '16 at 13:50
