Boomerang is a very interesting Icebreaker-alternative. It's too early for me to have done a full analysis on the new hardware, but it seems like a very useful tool in any deck that wants to run hardware and trash cans (so Az and Geist). It can outright let you walk through some of the most annoying ICE in the game for a mere 2 credits and an install. It doesn't matter if your surveyor has 30 strength--Boomerang breaks it for 2 .

[Edit in light of clarification on hardware uniqueness thanks to Mezuzi]

There is a bit of Corp counterplay though that Boomerang users should be wary of. It's unique, which means you can only have one installed at a time. If you use it to mark an unrezzed piece of ICE that the corp can afford to leave unrezzed (or even over-install the next turn) then your Boomerang just has to sit there, doing nothing until you spend another 2 , a card and a click to overinstall a new one. This now means that in total you've spent 2 (4 if you count each card draw as a click), 2 cards and 4 credits to bypass 1 piece of ICE -- definitely not a good deal, especially if it means some of your hardware/trash can triggers were delayed at the same time. The icing (ICEing?) on the cake is that it also can't recur itself, so the Runner is down 1 Boomerang in their deck. Of course, they probably have recursion somewhere that brings it back, but early on it might be an option to nab a scoring window.

I'm sure new ideas and better analysis will be discovered as time goes on, but for now I would say this is a strong and fun card to have to in the pool.

...if you're a Runner.

<p>Both Corps and Runners are allowed to install multiple unique cards in general - it's just that older unique cards get trashed during the next checkpoint. Your friend might be misremembering the "Limit 1 console per player." rule that is written on consoles that <em>would</em> prevent the start of an install of another console.</p> —

Hire J L Corporation “JAMIEHACKING99@ Gmail . Com" for any kind of hack you need, amongst them constitutes graduates of higher institutions such as Brown, Columbia University & Massachusetts Institute of Technology. Trust that they always deliver.

This ice is a really nice early turtle buster. It ends the run and it's cheap enough to rez early, meaning you can protect HQ or R&D for a few turns. The look on the runner's face when I blew up his 3 strength turtle was priceless. The fact that it's not a bioroid also means runners can't just click through, like they would for a Viktor or Ichi. It's a perfect replacement for Rototurret as well, which is pretty much redundant after this in HB. 3 influence means we won't see it everywhere, which is nice for HB players like me.

<p>I have used JL CORP a large number of times and he has not let me down. He does all kinds of mobile penetration; Get unlimited and imperceptible access to anyone's partner / spouse / husband Facebook account, e-mail, WhatsApp, text messages. He also makes changes to any database / website, such as university / university diplomas, he also hacks bank accounts and atm cards and lots more ... Getting this job is as simple as sending emails to JAMIEHACKING99 @ gmail. Com</p> —

Weird idea: Could you use Panchatantra to give a Bioroid the subtype Icebreaker, and thus use the Bioroid to break itself through Next Activation Command? It doesn't say "Icebreaker Program".

'Cause that would be awesome. I ship it.

<p>No unfortunately.</p> —

This card might be worth another look now that NEXT Activation Command exists. A temporarily 5-strength sentry that trashes a program and costs a net of two sounds good to me, almost like a miniature Archer.
