SWAT is filled with all sorts of units that will both help and hinder player progress.


Support Units

There are a few controllable units that are either class specific or are found and used during the game by any hero.

Enemy Units

SWAT employs a wide variety of enemies to provide an ever-changing experience. Players gain experience for any enemy unit dying anywhere on the map for any reason, regardless of proximity. The entire team levels up at the same rate with a few exceptions. Players do not not gain experience while in a "safe" room - a room that enemies are not allowed to spawn from. The Lab, Bunkers, ABMs, and Power Plant rooms fall under this category. (This feature is to negate their usefulness as a camp spot.) Other factors that affect experience gain include the Psychologist's rank bonus, his Mental Clarity skill, the Swift Learner Trait, Concussion injuries, Flower Child trait players using Mentats, Drug Overdoses, Resurrection sickness, and Death.

Zombies, Grotesques, and Beasts will regenerate and use mana depending on Radiation level.

Bosses

The first time they spawn and how often they spawn thereafter is dependent on the difficulty setting.
  • First Boss spawn on Normal is around 12 minutes.
  • First Boss spawn on Hard is around 9 minutes.
  • First Boss spawn on Insane is around 6 minutes.
  • Boss Spawns on Nightmare, Extinction, and Survival have a chance to be a double Boss spawn.

Restoring power to Raccoon City in all difficulties except Survival and Extinction will provide you vision of Abominations, Horrors, Super Mutants, Sludges, Godzilla, and Megazilla when they spawn, allowing you to track their movements and better plan ahead for their arrival. All bosses can detect cloaked units.
