I'm on a guerilla op right now, and I'm seeing a seventh soldier in my squad that I don't remember adding to my squad.

They have no class (no, not even Rookie), seem to have a randomized name, and the following stats:

  • 9 health
  • 95 aim
  • 5 hack
  • 50 will

Who is this, why are they in my squad, and will I keep them once I'm done with the mission?

To clarify, I remember setting up the squad clearly, but it's a somewhat old save so I could have done something previously that I don't remember.


If you have the bonus called Volunteer Army (either from continent bonus or resistance order), there will be a chance of a unclassed resistance soldier join you on missions.

There's another similar bonus called Double Agent where there's a chance of a random advent unit (stun lancer or trooper) join you on a mission.

  • Possible to have both on a mission? – Roijan says reinstate Monica Dec 24 '17 at 0:16
  • Confirmed: I finished the mission and checked my Resistance orders and Volunteer Army was in it. – Nissa Dec 24 '17 at 1:43
  • @StephenLeppik The Double Agent advent unit has grenades (or at least one of them does). – walrus helmet Dec 24 '17 at 18:38
  • @RoijanEskor I was wrong. I just had a mission where I had both an advent stun lancer and a random resistance soldier for the first time, so it is in fact possible – l I Jan 1 '18 at 1:38
