This mod adds a series of new enemies to XCOM 2. It is an update to the Muton Centurion pack and replaces it entirely. It includes: 

* Muton Centurion, a Muton leader with the ability to inspire its allies 
* Muton Elite, a powerful Muton who can dominate in battle 
* ADVENT Drone, a small, nimble crowd-control robot that hunts for hidden enemies 
* Naja, an alien sharpshooter related to the Viper 
* Sidewinder, a speedy alien skirmisher related to the Viper 
* Sectoid Commander, a stronger sectoid with area-of-effect abilities 
* ADVENT MEC Archer, a mechanized unit built to bombard at long ranges 
* Chryssalid Soldier, a larger, strong Chryssalid 
* Hive Queen, a monstrously large Chryssalid 
* ADVENT Sentry, a soldier specializing in overwatch abilities 
* ADVENT Grenadier, a soldier with a grenade launcher 
* ADVENT Rocketeer, a soldier with a rocket launcher 
* ADVENT Gunner, a suppression specialist 
* Many of these have upgraded versions that appear later in the campaign, and the mod includes upgraded Vipers and Archons as well. 

If you prefer just to use the old Muton Centurion mod, it's available as v1 of the Alien Pack on the Nexus ( http://www.nexusmods.com/xcom2/mods/5/?). v2 and later is the full Alien Pack, the same as this mod.

----------- TROUBLESHOOTING ----------------- 

NOTE: IF after the update you are getting floating ADVENT heads or other issues, you should exit the game and REGENERATE YOUR INI files by deleting all files in \Documents\My Games\XCOM2\XComGame\Config. These will be recreated on your next game start. (Additional tip: You can preserve your options settings by NOT deleting XComEngine.ini in this directory.)
