Training Roulette is a Second Wave option introduced in XCOM: Enemy Within.

Each soldier's training tree is mostly randomly generated. Does not apply to MEC Troopers.

After a soldier reaches Squaddie rank (receiving a class and their first ability), future ranks will primarily grant randomized abilities from a pool of all the class abilities minus any skills that are dependent on a specific weapon (which remain class locked).

  • All random abilities are generated upon a soldier reaching Squaddie rank but are only unlocked as the soldier ranks up; this is to prevent save scumming.
  • Alien Abductions that rewards higher ranked soldiers will come with skills unlocked. It is possible to save before the mission ends, and re-loadi to get a different soldier with different skills.
