Type Armor Ability
Prerequisite Serpent Suit
Effect Frozen, moves enemy humanoid targets out of cover
Uses 1 per mission

Frostbite is an ability introduced in the Alien Hunters DLC for XCOM 2. It is unique to the Serpent Suit.

When activated, the soldier launches their Grappling Hook at a target, freezing it. Humanoid targets (like ADVENT troops) will be pulled out of cover into the open.

Frostbite is a free action, and has a single charge per mission. It has a certain percent chance to hit, unlike other armor abilities. If Frostbite misses, it has a 2 turn cooldown before it can be used again.

Tactics Edit

  • Use Frostbite to pull particularly dangerous ADVENT soldiers out of cover, like Shieldbearers or Avatars, and freeze them to negate their Dodge and Defense attributes in order to get free hits on them.
  • Frostbite is affected by aim increasing bonuses, like Holo-Targeting. Use this to your advantage by equipping the soldier with a Perception PCS or using aim-increasing abilities.
