XCOM 2 New Mod Removes Pauses Between Combat Actions, Increases Unit Movement Speed


XCOM 2, the strategy game developed by Fireaxis now available in all regions on PC, is an involving and challenging game which comes with a few issues  that might make playing it more annoying than it should. Thankfully, one of these issues has now been fixed by a new mod that's been released recently.

The new XCOM 2 mod, called Stop Wasting My Time, is a very good mod which many of the pauses and wait times that players have to go through when playing the game.

  • Removed 1-3 sec pause after shooting, throwing grenades, abilities, etc.
  • Removed 1 sec pause after getting a kill
  • Removed 2.75 sec pause after going into cover
  • Reduced pauses from reanimating corpses and unburrowing chryssalids by 80%
  • Removed unskippable Bradford voiceovers: 1, 3, and 6 turns remaining warnings Civilians dying warning
  • Increased unit movement speed by ~10% (Lowered by popular demand – can be reduced back to normal under Options –> Gameplay –> Unit Movement Speed)
  • Removed slowdown of non-attacked enemies during overwatch slow-mo

Some of the pauses, however, cannot be removed due to technical reasons.

  • 3 sec pause after unit becomes panicked
