5. Arasaka MK 3
This cyberdeck is great for combat, with an increase of 30% to all combat quickhacks. Not only will you do more damage, but it also reduces the cost of stealth quickhacks by 1 and allows your ping duration to reset if you quickhack a pinged enemy. Basically, combat is going to be a lot easier and will feel very satisfying.
4. Arasaka MK 4
This cyberdeck, also created by Arasaka Corporation, is more focused on stealth with its 10 RAM, eight buffer, and six quickhack slots. It will reduce the RAM cost of all stealth quickhacks by 2 and refresh your ping quickhack every time a revealed enemy is quickhacked during a ping reveal. You’ll want this cyberdeck if you’re looking to hack multiple guards in a row. Do more damage and do it faster.
3. Netwatch Netdriver Mk.5
This cyberdeck is perfect for taking down groups of enemies. You can maintain control of a chaotic battle by utilizing control quickhacks and direct combat quickhacks. With 11 RAM, eight buffer, and six slots, you will easily be able to take down groups of enemies since it increases the normal spread distance of quickhacks by 60%.
2. Tetratronic Rippler Mk.4
This cyberdeck specializes in powerful ultimate quickhacks. Its special abilities reduce the RAM cost of all ultimate quickhacks by 3 and allow any ultimate quickhack to spread once (not affected by any netrunner perks or other cyberdecks). It also provides you with a 75% reduced upload time and 45% cooldown reduction, allowing you to instantly take control of a fight and cause serious damage. Just remember you’ll run out of RAM quite often.

Speaking of RAM, this cyberdeck gives you a RAM recovery rate increased by 3 for one minute while also offering you to spread quickhacks 40% more. But this cyberdeck also has the added benefit of negatively impacting enemies in a big way. Enemy Netrunners have to spend 50% more time in order to hack you, keeping you consistently ahead of anyone facing you.
