Creating new items for your squad to keep up with the new enemies that will appear during the campaign is vital for their survival. You’ll primarily use Elerium to invest in new tech, which can be found by using the Spec Ops, or completing certain missions or situations on the city map. You do not need to assign an agent for the assembly project to be completed initially, but it may be that there is a requirement for more advanced tech.

While your available upgrades are few initially, you’ll unlock tons more as you progress through the campaign or unlock assembly upgrades. To that end, we’ve created this table that includes all of the research your squad can unlock that we know of so far. It includes the costs, what it unlocks, and all the requirements needed to research the project.
