10 Things Firaxis Should Do To Make Xcom 3 Epic: Page 5 of 11

Vipers were a... sinister addition to the franchise.

5) Add "Legendary Soldiers"

A great concept to add to the XCOM franchise would be that of so-called "Legendary Soldiers." There should be a few special soldiers, maybe 3 or 4, that you can have a chance of recruiting, but must complete a difficult chain of missions to obtain. 

These soldiers would be special Legendary characters with their own personalities, backstory, and voices. They would have more powerful and unique abilities compared to regular recruits, and could even have their own unique gear. 

Any XCOM playthrough would be made much more exciting if a player was given a chance to obtain a Legendary Soldier, and recruiting these soldiers into your ranks would boost the morale of the whole squad.

 
A Legendary Xcom soldier. The aliens' worst nightmare.
