Hacking Tools

Most characters in a modern campaign setting are well versed in using computers, and are automatically successful when employing technology for mundane tasks (searching a hard drive or the Internet, using the normal functions of an electronic device, and so on). For especially challenging technological tasks (finding hidden information on a computer, restoring information from a device that’s been erased, and so on), a character makes an Intelligence check against a DC set by the DM. However, some technical tasks — including breaking into protected computer systems, accessing hidden functions of electronic devices, or using a device in a way it was not designed for — require the use of specialized hacking tools.

Hacking Tools. This kit contains the hardware and software necessary to allow access into most computer systems and electronic devices. Proficiency with hacking tools lets you add your proficiency bonus to any Intelligence checks you make to connect to or make use of a computer system or electronic device. The kit fits snugly in a backpack or toolbox.
