Rigging and Driving

Avoiding Attacks

Drivers use Intuition + Reaction (Intuition x2 in VR) to avoid attacks, not Reaction+Vehicle skill. Full Defense allows them to add their Intuition again (CRB205, Attacks Against Vehicles, Evasive Driving). Qualities which allow substituting other things for Full Defense do not apply.

Control Rigs (and their Booster nanites) do not apply their rating as a bonus to defense tests.

Drones avoid attacks with [Pilot * 2], or [Pilot + Maneuvering autosoft] at GM discretion, and follow the same rules as other characters (CRB270) except for their Armor functioning the same as vehicle armor.

VR Attributes

When using VR to control drones, all related skills are tied to mental attributes instead of physical attributes. Specifically, Agility is replaced by Logic, and Reaction is replaced by Intuition.

Thus, Gunnery is linked to Logic instead of Agility, and Piloting to Intuition instead of Reaction when using VR.

This is not how most people use these rules, so be careful when reading about rigger advice in other places!

Upgrading RCCs

See the related section in the Gear Rules.

Cyberprograms on RCCs

RCCs are only able to run the programs specifically listed on CRB296 as usable on RCCs. RCC stats never include Attack or Sleaze, and RCCs cannot make use of commlink dongles.

Cyberprograms running on an RCC use up the same slots as autosofts, and therefore also count against the Sharing rating.

Electronic Warfare Actions

Target Device

This action must be executed using an RCC, using that RCC’s stats, and only provides a bonus to devices slaved to the same RCC. The maximum bonus that can be gained through this action is equal to the recipient’s rank in the used weapon skill, or the rating of the targeting autosoft for drones.


A swarm must include at least two drones in order for the Swarm program to work and apply its benefits.
