Trivia

  • The regression penalty of Surge is not applied on top of the default regression penalty of a missed Skill Check IconHelp skillChecks.png, which would be 10 %.
  • Since any affected Generators start regressing automatically, Surge conflicts with using Pop Goes the Weasel IconPerks popGoesTheWeasel.png or Overcharge IconPerks overcharge.png. It does, however, activate Surveillance IconPerks surveillance.png on Generators affected by it.
