EFFECTS
  • This level has the same effects as Surprise Shot L1, but the MOD to the opponent's Attribute is -6.
  • The MOD provided by this Level is not stackable with the MOD provided by the previous Level.
  • Any Special Skill or piece of Equipment which ignores the MOD provided by Surprise Shot L1 will be applied to this Level too.


The special training undergone by all operatives with concealment, camouflage and disguise backgrounds invariably includes setting up effective ambushes and making the most of an unforeseen fire vector with lightning attacks. After an attack so quick that the befuddled victims can do nothing to save themselves, the operative is free to relocate onto a new vantage point.

N3 Frequently Asked Question FAQ Version: 1.1
Q: When a Hacker equipped with ODD uses the Hacking Program: Cybermask, does his ODD turn off? When will the ODD turn on again?
A: A trooper can only use or benefit from one Special Skill, piece of Equipment or Hacking Program with the NFB Trait or Label in the same Order.

When you use Cybermask, the ODD will turn off because this Equipment has the NFB Trait and any Special Skill or Equipment with this Trait or Label is incompatibe with any other Special Skill or Equipment that has the same Trait or Label.

The ODD will turn on when you cancel or turn off the effect of the Special Skill, Equipment, or in this case the Hacking Program, that produces the disconnection.

As an example, this means a trooper cannot benefit from the ODD and also the Surprise Shot provided by Cybermask in the same Order.
