Accelerator Chips

Accelerator Chip icon
It is possible to increase a console's uplink potential by optimizing its process tree and emptying its recycling bin.

Accelerator Chips are items which increase the amount of PWR generated when hijacking a Console. The extra PWR generated using an Accelerator Chip is in addition to any bonus from the agent's Hacking skill. There are three “tiers” of Accelerator Chip; each type has an Anarchy skill level requirement for the agent to use them.

To use an Accelerator Chip, the agent carrying it must stand on a tile adjacent to the Console — Internationale's Wireless Emitter cannot be used in combination with an Accelerator Chip. It is not possible to use more than one Accelerator Chip when hijacking the same Console.
