Implants

Implants are permanent items that can be used to enhance your soldier with gameplay perks. Implants can be obtained from the Depot for Certification Points or Daybreak Cash, in packs of 3 or 9 or crafted using ISO-4. The Safeguard and Target Focus implants are given to everyone by default.

Implant Slots

Implants are equipped on the loadout screen next to your melee weapon. Two different implants can be equipped at a time.

Icons of the equipped implants will appear on the player's Heads Up Display (HUD).

Getting Implants Edit

The primary way of obtaining implants is through buying Implant Packs in the Depot. Implant Packs contain the stated number of randomly-selected implants, including duplicates. Various implants have different drop rates, ranging from Common with the highest drop rate to Exceptional with the lowest drop rate.

ISO-4 Edit

Icon ISO-4

ISO-4 is the currency used for upgrading basic implants to Tiers 2 through 5, and for buying ISO-4 Recycler packs in the depot which grant one random implant of a rarity greater than Common.

ISO-4 can be obtained by breaking down duplicates of implants and participating in the Alerts. Winning an alert awards the dominating faction with 300Icon ISO-4 and the two opposing factions with up to 100Icon ISO-4. Each Tier-1 basic implant breaks down to 25Icon ISO-4 and each Exceptional implant to 500Icon ISO-4.

Players are limited to having 100,000Icon ISO-4 at a time.

Crafting Edit

Rarity Cost
Common 500Icon ISO-4
Uncommon 850Icon ISO-4
Class Specific 1,750Icon ISO-4
Rare 3,500Icon ISO-4

All unowned non-exceptional implants can be crafted using ISO-4 from the implants tab of the main menu.

Upgrade cost Edit

Every non-exceptional implant can be upgraded with ISO-4 from Ranks 1 through 5. Implant rank determines upgrade cost.

Rank 1 to Rank 2 Rank 2 to Rank 3 Rank 3 to Rank 4 Rank 4 to Rank 5 Total
75Icon ISO-4 225Icon ISO-4 900Icon ISO-4 2,475Icon ISO-4 3,675Icon ISO-4

Directives Edit

An additional way of getting implants is via directives.

Finishing the novice rank of any non-MAX class-specific directive will grant a Novice Implant Pack.

Finishing the novice rank of an objectives directive and the adept rank of a leadership directive will also grant one Basic Implant Pack each.

Players can be awarded a total of 5 Novice Implant Packs and 2 Basic Implant Packs from non-event directives.

Upon being revived, damage taken is reduced by 20% for 3.5 seconds; and you instantly restore 200 shield health as infantry, or an extra 500 health while in a MAX suit.
MAX units can equip.

Safeguard is one of the two initial implants. It is recommended for new players, who tend to be in exposed areas and near strategic chokepoints such as doorways, because it increases their survivability after being revived by teammates, possibly letting them quickly move back to cover without being repeatedly instantly killed.

Target Focus Edit

Target Focus
Displays the target's health bar while spotted, increases crosshair IFF detection range, and increases hold-breath duration by X%.
MAX units can equip. Works in vehicles.

Target Focus is one of the two initial implants. It is recommended for new players, as it extends crosshair IFF (Identification Friend or Foe) range from 8 to 55 meters, allowing the player to easily distinguish enemies from allies at longer distances. It is helpful to snipers, giving them a longer time to steady their aim using high-magnification scopes on sniper rifles. It is also helpful to vehicle gunners by helping them prioritize targets.

Upgrading this implant only increases hold-breath duration.

The ability to see a targeted enemy's health does not include seeing their shield health or status of the heavy assault over-shield.

Common Edit

Ammo Printer Edit

Ammo Printer
Restocks one tick of ammunition for all infantry weapons and the weapons of nearby vehicles you own every X seconds.
MAX units can equip. Works in vehicles.

Ammo Printer allows infantry and a player's own nearby vehicle to resupply on the go, without needing engineer ammo packs or vehicle ammo towers and pads.

It is useful for vehicle owners, for non-engineer players who prefer keeping their distance during combat, and for players in situations where they survive well yet keep running out of ammo.

Athlete Edit

Regenerates 35 health per second when out of combat for 10 seconds, and headshot kills restore 50 health immediately.

Regeneration allows infantry to passively regenerate health similarly to the bio lab faction-ownership benefit. It is especially useful for players who prefer using cover and ranged combat, and for players preferring more aggressive options for their utility slot instead of medical and restoration kits.

Safe Fall Edit

Safe Fall
Normal fall damage now starts at X meters and lethal fall damage starts near Y meters.
MAX units can equip.

Normal fall damage now starts at 75 meters, lethal fall damage starts near 230 meters, and you take reduced damage when vehicles collide with you.
MAX units can equip.

Safe Fall allows infantry to survive longer fall distances. For example, Safe Fall 4 and 5 allow you to jump from the tops of large outpost towers and bio lab aircraft landing pads without taking damage.

The vehicle collision damage reduction only applies to the player as infantry, not to their vehicle.

Killing an enemy while wielding a melee weapon, or while within 5 meters of your target will cloak you for 2 seconds. This cloak does not lock your weapons or interactions while active.

Nightmare briefly renders its user semitransparent when the mentioned conditions are met. Unlike an infiltrator's cloak, spots are not cleared from the user, their name tag is not hidden, the cloak is not as effective, and the duration of the cloak is very temporary, but the player can shoot and perform other actions that an infiltrator cannot do while cloaked.

Symbiote Edit

Symbiote
Passively receive 20% small arms resistance. This does not stack with Nanoweave Armor. Any time you are alive for longer than X seconds without taking small arms damage, the symbiote will gnaw at your health pool.

Symbiote will damage a player over time and make a burning sound at each gnaw, yet not kill them. Players using this implant may want to stay near an allied medic who can heal them. The player does not take periodic damage while inside a vehicle.

Exceptional Edit

Avoidance Edit

Avoidance
Avoidance
Your movements no longer trigger Claymores, Proximity Mines, or Bouncing Betty, and the range at which Spitfire Turrets can acquire you is reduced by 50%.

Bionics Edit

Bionics

Your personal shield health is increased by 400, and 400 health is removed from your health pool.

Carapace Edit

Carapace
Carapace
Your personal shield is removed and replaced with 500 additional health. Equipment that adds or modifies shield health does not stack with this implant.

Carapace replaces an infantry's 500-health shield (400-health with infiltrator) with a second meter of 500 health, similar to MAX units. The main benefits of this include not losing shields from EMP grenade explosions, the ability to use the various means of healing to be restored to full health, and not needing to wait for the shield to recharge.

Cold Heart Edit

Cold Heart

While piloting a vehicle, that vehicle becomes capable of spawning squadmates directly into it if there is an open seat.

Logistics Specialist allows squad mates to spawn into any vehicle that has a free seat, while usually it's only possible to spawn into a squad member's galaxy, Sunderer or Valkyrie.

Minor Cloak Edit

Minor Cloak
Minor Cloak
Remaining stationary for 8 seconds will cloak the user. Movement will break this cloak, though short bouts of movement will let you return to cloak more quickly after breaking it. Firing a weapon will reset the 8 second recharge countdown.

Minor Cloak renders its user transparent, similar to the infiltrator cloak, after standing or crouching still for 8 seconds.

Phylactery Edit

Phylactery
Phylactery
Each time experience is gained, your phylactery receives a charge. At 50 charges, your next death will allow you to self-revive once at 50% health.
Charges cannot be gained while in a vehicle or while dead.
NotLDPromo2

Phylactery implant user with 50 charges.

Phylactery lets the user revive themselves to 50% health once they have 50 charges. Any type of XP will give a charge, as long as you are not in a vehicle or dead.

This implant was originally available as a reward for completing the Nanite of the Living Dead event directive, but is now accessible at all times as an exceptional implant.

History Edit

Recently a new roadmap thread detailed some changes to implants based on feedback, the article has been updated to reflect this.

Nearing the release of Implants, Matthew Higby created a post detailing some of the upcoming items in Game Update 13. Some of which detailed the upcoming Implants, their abilities, and cost. These costs were in the form of certs and station cash and they decayed over time. The community at large disagreed with this and many believed they should be available permanently for large cert costs or via infantry resources. As a result of this feedback, SOE delayed Implants to change them up and take community feedback into play.

"After reading through your comments we have decided to go back to the drawing board on implants. They will not be coming with GU13." ~John Smedley (Tweet 1) (Tweet 2)

During development of Implants, there were three tiers of the implants with different icons similar to the design of Boosts. Some of these implants were removed, while others remained the same or merely changed names.

March 30, 2017 Update Edit

  • The Implants System has been completely overhauled to be more engaging and rewarding, while also alleviating the frustrations caused by the old system.
  • Energy has been removed, and a new currency called ISO-4 will now upgrade implants directly.
  • Old implants have been converted into ISO-4, and duplicate implants can be broken down into additional ISO-4.
  • All players receive Tier 1 Safeguard and Tier 1 Target Focus implants for free.
  • Additional implant bundles can be purchased for Certs or Daybreak Cash in the Depot.
  • Implants no longer drop occasionally

May 11, 2017 HotfixEdit

  • Directive-based Implant Rewards
    • The following rewards are meant to reward players at different stages of their career. New characters can quickly increase the breadth of their loadouts by completing Tier 1 directives for each class, while characters with a bit more experience can unlock implants for getting their foot in the door to the objective and leadership aspects of the game.
  • You can now earn 1 Novice Implant Pack (2 random non-exceptional implants) by completing the following directives:
    • Tier 1: Combat Medic
    • Tier 1: Light Assault
    • Tier 1: Heavy Assault
    • Tier 1: Infiltrator
    • Tier 1: Engineer
  • You can now earn 1 Basic Implant Pack (3 random implants) by completing the following directives:
    • Tier 1: Objectives
    • Tier 2: Leadership
  • ISO-4 Recycler
    • The ISO-4 Recycler can now be found in the depot and allows you to exchange excess ISO-4 for a chance at one random implant. Less common Tier 1s and Exceptional implants have a higher drop rate in this pack.

September 26, 2017 Update Edit

  • Safe Fall rank 5’s collision damage resistance increased from 20% to 50%.
  • Damaging targets who have Clear Vision equipped with small arms weapons will no longer trigger a resist icon.
  • Breaking down implants now has a sound effect associated with it.
  • Vampire implant no longer triggers in a vehicle.
  • TX1-FB Repeater, Beamer VS3-FB, and NC4-FB Mag-Shot are now treated as sidearms for the purposes of directive pistol kills and sidearm specific implant abilities.

November 20, 2017 Update Edit

Three new implants have been added to the drop tables, and the class-specific implants have had their drop rates increased.

  • Assassin (Tier 1 - Tier 5)
    • Killing targets give a percent chance to clear your marker while spotted, and headshots will always clear your markers. At rank 5, dealing damage with this implant will automatically spot your target.
  • Overdrive (Tier 1 - Tier 5)
    • Getting roadkills while in the pilot's seat of a vehicle will restore turbo fuel for the Flash and Harasser. At rank 5, this implant will also apply to the Liberator and empire specific fighters.
  • Logistics Specialist (Exceptional)
    • While in the pilot's seat of a vehicle, any vehicle with an open seat will now become a squad spawn point.
  • Assimilate’s Tier 5 benefit should be fixed.
  • Sound effects have been added to the nano-cycler.

November 22, 2017 Hotfix Edit

  • Safeguard's old melee damage resistance has been removed.
  • Assassin Tier 5 now properly marks targets.
  • Assassin Tier 5 description has been updated.
  • ISO-4 icon is now less cramped in the implant upgrade screen.
  • Counter-Intelligence should now clear the red indicators when switching loadouts.

December 7, 2017 Update Edit

  • Assimilate’s Tier 5 benefit should be fixed.
  • Aerial Combatant now drops from ISO-4 recyclers.

December 13, 2017 Hotfix Edit

  • Phylactery can now be found in the implant drop table.

February 9, 2018 Hotfix Edit

  • We’ve put the implant charger UI back in its box, hopefully never to be seen again.

March 12, 2018 Update Edit

  • Updated the Implant Nav menu icon.

April 5, 2018 Update Edit

  • Replaced the Implant Nav Menu icon with something more fitting.

June 12, 2018 Update Edit

  • The Implant screen has received a new look, complete with upgrade and breakdown animations. Revisiting this screen not only let us improve the overall design, but was necessary to fix issues where the old implant screen would overwrite certain notifications (like those for receiving revives or continent queue pop-ups,) make the chat channel difficult to use, and sometimes stack multiple implants on top of one another. Additionally, we’ve made Implants able to be filtered by owned and unowned on the Loadout screen.
  • Carapace implant now works with Regeneration Implant.

August 15, 2018 Update Edit

The pool of implants has been doubled. These implants have been added to the normal implant crates, alongside the ability to craft the implants you want with ISO-4. More about that below.

New ImplantsEdit

  • Jockey: Increases shield health when in a vehicle rumble seat.
  • Survivalist: Increases shield recharge rate and grants a sprint speed boost when at low health.
  • Athlete: Increases sprint acceleration, deceleration, and how quickly you get your hold-breath back.
  • Gunslinger: Kills with sidearms increase your reload speed for a short time.
  • Heavyweight: Grants a major reduction to flinch received from being struck by a projectile, but passively reduces your movement speed.
  • Response Jacket: Grants a resistance to successive explosive damage hits for a short time after you take explosive damage.
  • Ransack: Killing enemy vehicles at close range will restore a tick of ammunition for you and the vehicle you are in.
  • Critical Chain: Headshot kills grant increased rechamber speed for a short time.
  • Sidewinder: Increases strafing speed at the cost of lower strafing acceleration and deceleration.
  • Fortify: Interact with capture points to bolster your shield health for a short time.
  • Symbiote: You receive a passive small arms resistance so long as you've taken small arms damage recently.
  • Covert Drop: Taking damage from a fall will cloak you on landing.
  • Failsafe: When your shield breaks, it restores ability energy.
  • Salvage - MAX only: Killing other MAXes will instantly restore a chunk of health.
  • Paratrooper - Light Assault only: Taking damage restores jump jet fuel.
  • Electrotech - Engineer only: When your shield breaks, you send out a pulse that repairs nearby equipment.
  • Mobility Mesh - Heavy Assault only: Reduces the mobility penalty while your overshield is active.
  • Mending Field- Medic only: Nearby allies who are critically wounded heal passively up to a certain amount of health.
  • Firewall - Exceptional - Infiltrator only: You can now "hack" allied turrets to embed them with a firewall which *increases their health pool.
  • Disengage - Exceptional - MAX only: When Emergency Repair is activated, you will knock back nearby enemy infantry and increase your sprint acceleration speed slightly for a time.
  • Avoidance - Exceptional: You no longer trip proximity mines, and spitfires require you to be 50% closer to acquire you.
  • Bionics - Exceptional: Reduces health pool by 400 while increasing personal shields by 400.
  • Cold Heart - Exceptional: Increases heat cooloff for a short period after a headshot kill.
  • Experimental Stims - Exceptional: Gives a random movement speed, reload speed, or small arms resistance buff when consuming a Medical or Restoration Kit.

Crafting ImplantsEdit

  • Lady Luck not on your side? Players can now craft their desired implant by using ISO-4 in the Implant Foundry. Currently, all implants except Exceptionals can be constructed through ISO-4 alone.
  • Construction cost is based on the rarity (drop rate) of that implant.

Implant AdjustmentsEdit

Minor CloakEdit
  • Uncloak delay for firing your weapon from 1.25sec. to 1sec.
  • Moving within Minor Cloak will no longer immediately reset your cloak countdown (but will immediately uncloak you per usual.) Now, short bouts of movement after being cloaked will allow you to re-enter cloak more quickly.
  • Firing your weapon now resets the Minor Cloak countdown, ensuring that players no longer accidentally fall into minor cloak while engaged in combat.
Sensor ShieldEdit
  • Detection range reduction has been buffed for all ranks, and the rank 5 benefit has been modified.

  • Deployables no longer trigger Aerial Combatant.
AssimilateEdit
  • Tier 5 benefit from 30% of current energy restore to 10% of maximum energy restore.
  • Dev Note: Restructuring this benefit reduces the overwhelming synergy with Adrenaline Shield, while resulting in higher energy returns in situations where you’d normally deplete or get close to depleting your energy, since it no longer bases the regeneration on your current energy supply.
Nanomesh Specialist - Heavy AssaultEdit
  • Your overshield abilities now decay 50/55/65/80/80% slower while stationary, and 25/28/33/40/40% slower while moving.
  • Rank 5: Your depleted overshield no longer has a delay before it begins recharging.

Dev Note: The rank 5 bonus and progression from ranks 1-4 have been swapped, and increased to be more useful in more situations.

  • Ransack's rank 5 bonus now provides 10% of max health, instead of 10% of current health on kill.
  • Symbiote's resistance bonus no longer stacks with Resist Shield.

October 11, 2018 Update Edit

  • Critical Chain
    • Chamber speed no longer goes away upon the first shot.
