This mod adds 20 new specializations for Musashi’s amazing RPG Overhaul mod. These specializations contain 140 perks from Shadow Ops, Favid’s Extended Perk Pack, MINT, A Better Barracks, Long War 2, Richard’s Classes, the base game and a few custom ones, giving you an incredible number of new options to customize your soldier’s builds to your heart’s desire.


There are a lot of them and I didn’t want to post that gigantic wall of text here, so if you’d like to read about the perks and specializations in this mod, you can find them in this thread.

Recommended Mods:
  • Extended Explosives Tweaks – This mod is not required, but without it, the Combat Engineer specialization will be missing two perks and the Sapper perk will not be useful. I highly recommend giving this a try!
  • Ballistic Shields – This mod is not absolutely required, but without it, most of the Protector‘s perks are not useable. They’re awesome, even more so with Favid’s perks, so no reason not to get them!
  • Skirmisher Rebalance – This makes some of the base game Skirmisher perks, some of which are used by this mod, more competitive.

Thanks and Credits:
