You can make many different adjustments to your Kill Team in this mode. This gives you a great degree of control to correct mistakes.
Be aware that issues may arise from using Manual Mode, such as having too many points to spend during Recruiting/Rearming if you remove equipment from a Fighter.
Sgt. Cadwell leads Recon 18b. He sees his men as his brothers. One, Ryker Cadwell, is his actual brother, too.
Sgt Cadwell recently dropped his laspistol in a vat of acid, escaping from the Xenos horror "Maggie". He is currently not carrying any weapons.
Ryker is Bruce's little brother. He picked up affinity with plasma based weapons early in his career, much to the dismay of Bruce. They have fought together in Recon 18b ever since after their training
Cassius claims to have been saved as a boy by an armored angel of the emperor. Since then, he calls himself "Cassius," though no-one knows his real name.
