"Well you see, when a Maker's Eye and an Overclock love each other very much..."

This might seem at first like kind of a janky in-between or situational card, but it does so much for you. It's credit value, multiaccess, and click compression, all at the same time. Whether you're trying to break out of prison, keep up with asset spam tempo, or just hammer R&D with high-value runs, this card has got your back. I'll even sometimes play it when there's no remote to run, and it's still great value then (although it's obviously most efficiently used when you get value out of the second run as well).

The biggest limitation it has is that you have to run R&D first, so if you're not prepared to deal with the outermost ice there, it's effectively turned off. But most of the time, that's not going to be the case. If you play Shaper and your rig uses credits during runs, you should probably be slotting this card.

You get the like for the fist line alone!

Compare: Overclock × The Maker’s Eye × Marathon

Trick Shot pairs a Subsidized Run with both an R&D Multiaccess and a (Clickless) Remote Run.

And it really feels like a trick shot: you're bouncing around all over the place, knocking several billiard balls into different pockets.
