In-GameEdit

This augmentation lowers the player's chances of being detected upon capturing or fortifying any node. As higher-level nodes carry higher levels of detection, this upgrade makes hacking significantly easier and is a very useful upgrade for players that plan on hacking many terminals manually.

Every node has a chance of detection based upon the level of the node. Despite the maximum level of this augmentation lowering that chance by a significant amount, Level 1 nodes will always carry a 15% chance of detection. It is possible, however, to lower a node's security rating to 0 with the use of a Soften, Transfer, or Clearance node. Level 0 nodes will have a 0% chance of detection.

This upgrade is required to not be detected when hacking any node at or about Level 5, which have a default 100% chance of detection.

This augmentation will also lower the player's chances of being detected when fortifying an already-hacked node. This allows the player to fortify nodes in advance, in preparation of being traced.

This is a passive augmentation and does not have an energy cost or need to be activated.
