Standard Equipment: Wrath Cannon, Sectopod Blaster, Armour Plating
Intelligence: Is skilled in battle tactics. (Is strategic when deciding on who to attack first. If the Sectopod is near death, or feels outnumbered/outgunned, it may retreat to an allied position to regroup.)
Weaknesses: Armour piercing rounds can ignore the Sectopod’s armour, although difficult, it can be shutdown/controlled temporarily via hacking (Has to be hacked whilst next to the Sectopod). EMP ammo/EMP grenades make it more vulnerable to hacking. Explosives can permanently shred armour. Headshots have a higher chance to do critical damage.
Feats: Can walk through buildings/structures without taking any damage, immune to fire/poison/venom and psionic mind attacks. Gains defensive bonuses and increased aim when a hack fails on this unit.
- Overwatch: Grants a reactionary shot if the enemy moves within the unit’s field of vision
- High Stance: Allows the Sectopod to extend its height to two storeys high
- Lightning Field: Can shock a nearby enemy in/out of cover (doesn’t work on floating targets) (takes a short time to re-use).
- Wrath Cannon: Can charge up a powerful shot that can potentially finish of its target/s (does take time to charge up).
Note: This is different from the Sectopod seen in XCOM EU/EW.
