Research Projects are the primary way in which new technology, equipment and facilities are unlocked in XCOM 2. Research projects include the study and reverse-engineering of recovered alien technologies and autopsies on alien and ADVENT corpses.

List of ProjectsEdit

Regular Research ProjectsEdit

Enemy AutopsiesEdit

These research projects depend on the acquisition of a corresponding enemy corpse during a mission. Some autopsies' research time can be reduced to 0 (instant) after XCOM have gathered enough corpses of the corresponding enemy.

Shadow Chamber ProjectsEdit

These research projects are only available when the Shadow Chamber is built. Although accessed from a different part of the ship, they require Tygan's full attention, and put normal research on hold until they are completed. Once a shadow project is completed, normal research resumes where it left off.

SPOILER: These projects are storyline-related.
