The Advanced Warfare Center is a facility in XCOM 2. It allows for soldiers to rapidly recover from injuries and allows them to gain new abilities or retrain their current ones.
- Engineer - Healing Rate +100%
- Soldier - Retrains Soldier Abilities.
Allows a soldier to re-select all the abilities they have unlocked so far (random abilities will not be affected); takes 5 days to complete (10 on Legend difficulty).
As an additional benefit, the Advanced Warfare Center can give a soldier a Hidden Ability when they rank up; a Hidden Ability is an additional soldier ability from one of the other soldier classes.
- Upon completion, the AWC will roll a hidden <ability/rank requirement> combination for all existing soldiers.
- Any new soldier added to XCOM will have its hidden <ability/rank requirements> combination determined at recruiting time.
Contrary to what the facility's in-game description states, the Advanced Warfare Center does not confer Hidden Abilities retroactively; if a soldier's rank is above the rank requirement, they will not receive a hidden ability. Because of this, constructing the facility as soon as possible maximizes its effect.
