XCOM is a sci-fi strategy-making game from Firaxis Studios that came out in 1995. It is a big franchise, and a reboot of the game started around 2012. XCOM 2 and its expansions came out 2016 onwards. XCOM is pretty popular in its genre and has a huge fanbase online. However, the game isn’t easy to play. A lot of the game’s mechanics can seem random since each turn a player takes has a different success rate. As a result, a lot of players can find it tough to play the game initially. If you’re one of these players or want to try being invulnerable, then we have got all the cheats for XCOM 2. Read the article to find out all the details.
