XCOM 2 stats are probably wrong about nobody winning a game yet

XCOM 2 players have won over 4 million battles.


XCOM 2 telemetry claims nobody has finished Firaxis’s latest – not even on Rookie difficulty.

This is almost certainly an error (or a great many people are fibbing about their accomplishments), but it’s an amusing one: XCOM 2’s tactical combat is a lot easier to get a handle on than the difficult meta strategy game. Many players would probably be happy to believe it.

More likely to be accurate is word that players have won 4.4 million battles with a 24% flawless rating.

In the course of these battles players have dispatched over 54 million Advent troops. Of the unit types listed on the page, the least common is Codex at only 4% of kills. Vipers aren’t listed, which is a shame; I’d like to know just how many of those wretched beasts are in the ground (put my specialist down, you reptile).

To absolutely nobody’s surprise Rangers are the most deadly class with 27% of kills total. Blademaster, yo.

Anyway, go check the XCOM 2 Global Overview page for yourself.

XCOM 2 is out now on PC, and it is rad. Tough as all heck, but rad.
