Automated Threat Assessment is a MEC Trooper ability in XCOM: Enemy Within.

Confers +15 Defense when in Overwatch.

– In-Game Description, XCOM: Enemy Within


  • MECs can't use cover so it's important to boost survivability when building a defensive MEC. This is one of three upgrades available to a MEC Trooper to boost defense, the others being +10 Defense from the MEC suit itself and the -20 Aim penalty from Body Shield innate ability from former Heavy Troopers.
  • The benefit from Automated Threat Assessment ends if the MEC takes an Overwatch shot, limiting its utility.
