Electron Suppression is a Tier Four psionic discipline that immobilizes any robotic target for a duration of 3 seconds per PSI.


  • Robots are the natural nemesis of the psionic character. Electron Suppression is a powerful tool to aid you in avoiding or fighting them. The duration is quite short, so use the time well. Note that you can attack your targets with no consequences.
  • Works on all purely Mechanical enemies, but not Half-Mechanical (Cyborgs).
  • Very useful on Turrets, but not so much on Cameras... while they will stop moving, if you're in their view range (45 degrees from their view center) they can still detect you and what's worse, also sound the alarm!
  • Doesn't work on SHODAN or her avatars.
