      The absolute toppest-tier quickhack. Legendary Short Circuit is a must have and should be in every cyberdeck.

        Passive work with crit grenades? Or does it only work on ranged and melee weapons? All I know is that it definitely doesn't work with the projectile launching system, although in theory it should be considered a weapon.

          I think I got a legendary one for the "oldschool" chip-quest (you have to investigate the fridge at the landfill where you got dropped by DeShawn after the heist). Same place you can find the iconic pistol of DeShawn. Had to bring it to Nyx at the afterlife.

            Legendary is an absolute monster, it trivializes the whole game when paired with a fast shooting weapon and/or a cool build
