A neodymium skin underlay matrix built of nano-meshed rare earth magnets and powered with hook-ins to the Biocell electrical system, the TITAN skin augmentation can be activated at will and then dissipated instantaneously. When activated, dimorphic magnetorheological fluid is ejected from tiny nozzles installed throughout the skin. Simultaneously, the neodymium underlay electrifies, causing the fluid to solidify and seal the user inside an iron shell, effectively protecting them from all physical damage.
The shield is resistant to gunfire and all forms of conventional explosives, but is vulnerable to EMP-based weaponry.
Subcutis Energy Mod Edit
A number of modifications to the subcutaneous power distribution network are required to make the TITAN augmentation work. A separate implant handles these modifications fluidly by tapping into the user's energy system and ensuring a continuous power supply.
Facet Cost Reduced Edit
Shrinking the size of the prisms in the iron foam that makes up the structure of the colloid liquid decreases the per-tick energy required to sustain the shell. The excess energy can then be used to increase the magnetic response of the MR fluid, quickening the development and prolonging the maintenance of the solidification.
Facet Cost Optimized Edit
Reduce energy requirements for the TITAN by activating a series of phasing capacitors installed in the neodymium underlay. These will passively collect energy from the user's ambient EM field and release their charges during nanosecond intervals via the usual biocell dispersion schedule.
- Light or medium weight enemies can be taken down even with the Titan field active. However heavily built enemies, such as Viktor Marchenko, need something like EMP damage or an electric shock to soften them up for hand-to-hand delivery.
- Titan shield energy drain increases exponentially the faster you move.
