Remote Circuitry Manipulation is a Tier Four psionic discipline that allows you to hack using PSI stat instead of CYB stat and hack skill and PSI points in lieu of nanites.


  • Remote Circuitry Manipulation is one of few psionic abilities that benefit of PSI skill level higher than 8 (up to a total of PSI 10).
  • The power uses half of your PSI stat (rounded up) in place of both Hacking skill and CYB stat.
  • As the power uses your PSI stat, not your CYB, it is actually not very useful for a psionic/hacker hybrid.


  • This skill allows the pure psi character to hack, although you'll need to boost your PSI extremely high to be even moderately good at dealing with late-game hackable objects.
