SummaryEdit


This self-destructive kamikaze program deals massive damage to a targeted firewall. It's usually enough to conquer a node in one blow.

The Maniac is a Brute Force Offensive Program which attacks a single node based on attack priorities. After it damages the target, it will uninstall itself from the current node.

Statistics Edit

  • Notes: While the Maniac is technically allowed to upgrade at the Evolver levels displayed, the Capacity of B-coins that can be held at those levels may not be sufficient to purchase the upgrade.
    More Info here: Max amount of B-coins at Core Level.

Patch Notes Edit

As of Patch v1.025, Maniac disk space has been reduced from 20 to 15.

Tips Edit

  • Maniac can capture nodes very quickly, which is useful to break through chokepoints or high firewall nodes protected by Guardians while the shields are down.
  • It is very important to know attacking priorities and be able to identify the levels of nodes when using Maniac, because it may not target the preferred node.
  • Maniacs are usually not essential to a hack. It is best to consider else what could be done with the 15 disk space before compiling one for a hack.
