XCOM2 Rumor

A Rumor is a randomized event in XCOM 2.

A rumor appears after completing a mission and reveals a point of interest on the Geoscape that needs to be scanned by the Avenger in order to obtain the rumor's indicated rewards. Rumors usually last between 9 to 18 days but one maybe removed early if a new rumor of the same reward type is discovered.
