Summary Edit


"When an intrusion is detected the Guardian starts installing protective subroutines on neighbour nodes."

The Guardian is a defensive Security Node. During the Brute Force phase in a hack, Guardians provide a connected node with a shield that acts similar to an ICE Wall, one node at a time, every five seconds. The Guardian will provide itself with a shield if all connecting nodes are protected. Guardian shields will prevent damage equal to its Protection statistic. Once depleted, the shield will be removed, and can be replenished once every 5 seconds.

The maximum level a Guardian can be upgraded to is 21[1]. The maximum number of Guardians you can have on your network is three. Unlike Business Nodes, there are no restrictions on deleting Guardian nodes from the network.

  • On 20th December 2016, Guardian shield protection was increased by roughly 20%, and a bug relating to Blaster/Black ICE shots was fixed. Guardian shields also now install on upgrading and Wraithed nodes.

Tips Edit

  • Due to their low firewall and high connection values, Level 1 Guardians and Scanners can make great choke points.
  • Since Patch v1.011, Guardian shields now provide a substantial firewall boost to connected nodes, and can be used to protect vital Security Nodes.
  • Guardian shields can be depleted by a Battering Ram.
  • The order in which it installs protection on connected nodes mirrors the order in which those nodes are attacked. It always installs protection on itself last.
