Tactical Sense is an ability of the Assault Class in XCOM: Enemy Unknown.

Confers +5 Defense per enemy in sight (max +20).

– In-Game Description, XCOM: Enemy Unknown

NotesEdit

  • Tactical Sense can help an Assault Survive close combat with a shotgun should the unit fail to kill the target.
  • If the entire squad is in equal cover, the extra Defense may encourage an enemy to target other squad members.
  • 20 / 5 = 4. It is either rare or unadvised to encounter or activate 4 hostiles at once. One pod usually means 2 or 3, and to tactically control a situation one should not activate more than one group. This means it is better not to let this ability reach its full potential, and it is inferior to its alternate choice which only needs 3 hostiles for maximum potential. This ability has more pragmatic use when Snipers receive this option through Training Roulette. It has a synergistic effect with Squadsight meaning your soldier can benefit from visible enemies that in return cannot see your Sniper.
