Xenoplanetary Conditioned-Trained Infantry, also known as XCT or Hazardous Environment Troops, are infantry which have undergone rigorous training and received special equipment that allows them to fight in areas and on planets dangerous to human life. This can range anywhere from nuclear waste sites to planets with toxic atmospheres, or no atmosphere at all.[1] XCT Infantry can also benefit from motorization, a fact which ComStar Explorer Corps' Hostile Environment Recon Units know well. These elite infantry utilize whatever means of transport is appropriate, from crawlers to skimmers, in order to protect their survey teams from any threat.[2]


Hostile Environment Recon Units receive the best equipment, even by ComStar standards. Mauser 960 Assault Systems and Hellbore Assault Lasers gives these soldiers a level of firepower unseen in most other infantry units.
