Looting a network would be easy if nodes didn't hit back.

Who needs shields anyway, amirite? What if I told you this was possible? Check out how below!

Have you ever fought your way through a network, only to be stumped by a single solitary Core, protected by three Guardians? Takes forever to capture right? ... Wrong!

The Stunning Combo is capable of locking down a single node, applying relentless pressure to a high firewall node, or even shutting down a security node completely. No shields? No problem! 8-)

Zap that node with a Shocker, then install a Blaster or two to lock it down completely... or three if you need a problem taken care of quickly. Be sure to wait 2 seconds before installing each Blaster for maximum stun time.

You can even use this tactic against multiple nodes, if you use the Stronghold tactic to take care of extra attackers.


Not enough? There's more! Stunned nodes are also prevented from regenerating firewall. Larger firewall nodes such as the Core and high level security nodes recover a sizeable amount of firewall each second. Preventing this recovery is like dealing free damage!

Blasting your way to victory has never been so easy! Try it today!
