An Arc Blade is a secondary weapon in XCOM 2. This upgraded sword-type weapon is restricted to Rangers.

When pure kinetic energy is no longer sufficient in the field, the Arc Blade may prove necessary. It boosts the standard Sword's combat effectiveness with the addition of an electric field, capable of stunning enemies not killed outright.

–New Item Available description


It is unlocked by research the ADVENT Stun Lancer Autopsy.

Tactical InfoEdit
