With D4v1d rotating, Anarch’s answer to big ice seems to be gone. But now comes this little box. Whilst it cannot be recurred, a single use drops the strength low enough to break fairly cheaply (for the remainder of the run, if you end up getting somehow bounced back to it with Ganked!). This means you can quite freely run with Aumakua and not mind if you hit an Anansi, or use fewer counters from Yusuf or even one of Giest’s bin breakers if you import it. Hippo, Chisel and Prey seem to work well with it too.
It’s not much use against low strength, taxing ice, such as Gold Farmer or Endless EULA and it doesn’t do much to help Black Orchestra or MKUltra on plus-2 sub ice, but I think this little box has a lot of potential.
Note: It’s a Chip, which means it dies to Scapenet! But it’s also a hardware, which means it triggers Masterwork (v37) and can be installed on the fly by the console as well as Prognostic Q-Loop.
