The Science skill affects your hacking abilities on terminals. There are 5 difficulty settings on terminals which each require a certain level of science skill, they are:

  • Very Easy (15)
  • Easy (25)
  • Average (50)
  • Hard (75)
  • Very Hard (100)

Having a high Science skill will make it much easier to hack Very Easy, Easy and Average terminals, there will be less words on the screen and more brackets to help you remove duds. Hard and Very Hard terminals will have much longer words than the lower difficulties making it much harder to break down. Your Science level will increase depending on your Intelligence, each Intelligence level will increase your Science skill by +2.
