Nano Core





Upgrades Mk. IV to Mk. V and Mk. IX to Mk. X

Nano Core is a Component in The Surge.


Nano Core Details

Used to assemble Mk. V (Mk. X in NG+) weapons and gear.

Each chunk of 'nano-matter' begins as a single microscopic seed of nanites which replicate themselves until a standardized mass is reached, at which point its adaptive programming takes over. The resultant Nano Core will automatically analyze and improve any tool, weapon, or piece of gear to which it is applied. ”

      Kinda sad that upgrades with these are outclassed almost immediately into the next ng+ cycle because of mk6 or the ng++ version

        In the DLC From R&D it's incorrect. It's 85 for the one in the entrance to Park Maintenance and 70 after Carbon Cat. Could this be verified and updated? : > -Faxxleton

        • So if I dont use them all in my first walkthrou I can use them to ugrade weponad to Mk.X in NG, or do Nanocores from NG are next tier that don't stack with those from first walkthoru ?
