Daemons are special security systems used by the Corporations to further enhance the protection of their mainframe devices. Daemons give your agents or Incognita temporary debuffs (i.e. slow your agents down, lock down Incognita's hacking ability). They spawn randomly on any mainframe devices that exist in the map, but the quantity of them depends on the security level of the mission.

A Reverse Daemon (Algorithm) gives a positive benefit when Incognita successfully counters a daemon when it tried to install. This has a 10% chance of occurring, having Brimstone adds another 10%.

Daemons are initially hidden (meaning you won't know what kind of debuff the Daemon will bring from the first glance), but they can be revealed upon hacking a Daemon Database or using the Daemon Sniffer program or the Scan Chip item.

In Endless-mode, after Day 5, Central will warn you of more powerful daemons. One of these will trigger at the start of every mission from then on.

These are Incognita programs that may affect Daemons and Reverse Daemons:

  • Hunter, which kills a single Daemon (this will also kill Plastech Modded MK1 guards that were knocked out).
  • Brimstone, which boosts the chance of reverse engineering a Daemon by 10%.
  • Daemon Sniffer, which reveals hidden Daemons.
  • Taurus, which moves a single Daemon to another mainframe device.

Below is a list of all Daemons and Reverse Daemons:
