While on the subject of messing with the atmosphere, you should consider having the air be unbreathable [for extended periods of time] so that everyone needs an tank of proper air when outside. This would add in another micromanagement element of the game, where you have to protect your Air Tank from enemies as well as keep all the soldiers' air levels good enough. You could easily have a bunch of "storm the air tank" missions around as filler. It could be a fun PvP mode, too, where one team has control over the air tank and the others try to storm it, and unless they manage to snatch some air they'll die of land-drowning, so the cover team can just wait the enemies out... hopefully making the enemies more desperate and the game more fun to play.
