XCOM: Chimera Squad - Scavengers Market Guide

Created by Jack Benci   ::   May 5, 2020    


How on Earth does the Scavengers Market work exactly?!? Is it just random chance? Nope. In fact, all of it is scripted and items will only become available as the game progresses... So, what exactly can we get?

Intro



The Scavengers Market is XCOM: Chimera Squad's new passageway to getting Unique and Powerful items - at the expense of Intel. In this iteration, items unlock at the Scavengers Market unlock not only by the Investigations Completed, but are locked by random selection categories. Here are all the different items and their interactions with the Scavenger's Market.

The game uses the word "ACT" to describe how far in you are. You progress to the next ACT when you complete an investigation. So you begin in ACT 1, and progress to ACT 2 and ACT 3 as you play the game.

Act 1: First Investigation
