Cortical Processor Notes & Tips

  • Cortical Processors are used for crafting and upgrading Head Gear pieces.
  • They are obtained primarily by salvaging destroyed enemy head gears, however you can sometimes find them as treasure.
  • To upgrade a piece of armor to Mk V, X, XV, or XX, you will need the appropriate Nano Core
  • Every NG+ tier (NG+, NG++, etc) will increase the Mk level of the destroyed armor pieces that you find by 5, so you can upgrade pieces past Mk IV without using Nano Cores to upgrade them to Mk V or Mk X first - just build the armor at Mk VI or whatever level you need instead of building at Mk 1 in the base game and then upgrading once you're in NG+ mode.
