So this piece of ICE is pretty dumb.
Without its second sub it's Hunter for an extra credit. That's pretty bad, but as soon as you put a current on the table things go off the damn rails. A 2 cost 4 str tag/etr sentry is bonkers. Here are the costs to get through News Hound on all the killers printed as of D&D:
Dagger: 1 stealth, 2
Femme Fatale: 6
GS Shrike M2: 4
Mimic: 1 sucker, 2 creds
Pipeline: 8 and a bucket of your own tears
Shiv: 3 other breakers
Switchblade: 2 stealth
So basically, the only things that get through this dog reasonably are Mimic/Sucker, stealth breakers, and Faerie. Everything else pays at least double the rez cost.
TL;DR, NBN just got one of the best pieces of ICE in the game. Arf arf.
