Actions can be performed in game. They are abilities like Hacking, or PSI powers like Polycloning.

They can divided into 5 categories; My Actions, Cyber Control, PSI Force, Drone, Weapon Interface. At any time, you may access the full list of actions by pressing the Quick Actions key in-game; this will bring up the list, with unlearned actions grayed out. By default, you begin with all "My Actions" and "Weapon Interface" abilities unlocked.

Cyber Control[edit | edit source]

Cyber Control governs all Actions acquired or maintained through cybernetic implants, save Ghost. Unlike PSI powers, which are "equipped" and cycled through on the HUD, these are used either directly through the menu, through the action radial (default "c") or through a user-defined keyboard shortcut. Most of these abilities are tied to a specific cybernetic implant, purchased at the Medical. Some require research, and all require energy to use or maintain.

Each ability may be enhanced through a related CyberTech augmentation, which may reduce its energy cost or increase its potency.

PSI Force[edit | edit source]

There are several powers associated with the PSI statistic at the player's disposal. There are a total of 9 PSI powers in the game. The player starts with Alchemy and Polycloning. The three hidden Gate spells must be found through story play, with a maximum of one being found per play-through. All PSI powers require some energy to be used, and some health for Gate Powers as well.

It should be noted that while most PSI powers can be used to change the tide of a battle, most of them will occasionally have malicious side-effects that can be dangerous, if not fatal, for the caster. These include randomly losing a chunk of health upon casting, being flung at high-speeds in a random direction (Including up, most often at fatal heights) and madness.

===Psi Str​ike===

By holding the Sprint key and then Attacking, the player shoves his palm forward and emits a small blast of energy that can severely damage foes, if not outright kill most of them with a single strike. This ability costs energy and scales with psi becoming a formidable alternative to the standard Katana melee at high levels.

Weapon Block[edit | edit source]

Activated by holding Sprint and pressing the Aim/Parry/Alt Fire key, causing the player to raise their gun (With melee weapons they might simply parry, other items may cause no action) in a defensive position in front of them, blocking their face. With smaller weapons the effect is negligible, while with larger weapons (such as the Sulfatum) you can turn the weapon into an effective impromptu shield.

Psi Lift[edit | edit source]

Pressing enter on liftable objects(Sentrys, boxes, cars etc) will lift the object, enter again will set it down while left click will throw it at considerable velocity. The weight that can be lifted scales with psi.
