Modded MkII guards are an upgraded type of Modded guard. They are the same as Modded MkI guards, except they have armor, and they recapture devices in a radius of 8 tiles instead of 6.

Hacker

While a Modded guard is active, at the start of each enemy turn he recaptures a random hacked mainframe device within a radius of 6 or 8 tiles, measured by Euclidean distance from the Modded guard's location. When a device is recaptured, it reboots for 1 turn, and becomes active at the start of the next enemy turn, with 1 firewall.

Some devices — Augment Grafters, Augment Drills, all drones, and OMNI Protectors — are specifically exempt from being recaptured. If multiple devices are valid targets within range at the start of an enemy turn, a random one is recaptured; if there are no valid targets within range, then the Hacker ability has no effect on that turn.

Cyber Consciousness

When a Modded guard is knocked out, he inhabits the mainframe by installing a random daemon on a random mainframe device. When that device is hacked, the daemon's effect is triggered, and then the Cyber Consciousness ability installs another random daemon on a different device. When the Modded guard wakes up, his Cyber Consciousness daemon is removed from the device.

The Cyber Consciousness ability cannot install a daemon on a device which is currently controlled by the agency, or a device which already has a daemon installed; however, it can target a device which is rebooting, an inactive Security Camera, or a Corporate Safe or other device that has been looted without being hacked. If there are no valid targets when a Modded guard is knocked out, then his Cyber Consciousness ability has no effect, even if a device becomes a valid target while he remains knocked out.

If the program Hunter is used to remove a Cyber Consciousness daemon, then it also deals lethal damage to the Modded guard.
