MEC Troopers automatically receive a set of Base Augments upon completing their initial augmentation in the Cybernetics Lab. Base Augments cannot be utilized by MEC Troopers for combat but are worn when not assigned a MEC Suit, when recovering in the infirmary, while receiving a medal, or otherwise off-duty.
- Health Bonus: 0
- MEC Troopers wear their cybernetic base augments when not in combat
- The arms and legs lack the flexibility for use in the field; hence their removal when the MEC Trooper interfaces with a MEC cybersuit
- Ideally, they will permit MEC Troopers to resume normal lives should XCOM defeat the invaders
