As a lot as I like fan-favorite Rebecca, Edgerunners’ foul-mouthed, unpredictable, gun-toting merc, the perk that makes use of her likeness isn’t fairly as thrilling because the others. Die! Die! Die! is discovered on the Physique talent tree, and lowers recoil for Shotguns, LMGs, and HMGs once you’re low on Stamina and will increase your fireplace price as your Stamina decreases. It’ll undoubtedly enable you in a pinch, but it surely isn’t actually supplying you with a brand new device like the opposite Edgerunners perks do.

However on prime of that, relying on what number of factors you go over your capability, you will have an opportunity to enter a Fury state, which ups your injury by 10 % and offers you a 30 % greater crucial hit probability for a 50 % crucial injury enhance.

The entire thing seems like an echo of David’s arc in Edgerunners, which centered round his overuse of Cyberware and what it price him. So in the event you, too, would really like a style of that, it’s ready for you on the prime of the Technical Capability tree.
