Want to add more soldiers to your roster? This guide on How To Recruit More Agents In XCOM: Chimera Squad tells you how you can add additional units to your Armory as unlike previous games in the XCOM franchise, there isn’t an endless stream of recruits awaiting your invitation.
Other games in the XCOM franchise have focused nearly entirely on random generation for other soldiers and units that you can recruit to your army. Everything from their appearance to their classes, weapons, and nickname, all were randomly generated in such a way to keep the experience fresh and engaging from start to finish. XCOM: Chimera Squad does embody some of those same elements, but not to the extent of past games.
