  • WX-78 can create circuits that can be installed to unlock special abilities.
  • WX-78 can unplug their circuits by utilizing a Circuit Extractor. Unfortunately, this means losing any charge that the circuits were taking up!
  • WX-78 learns how to construct circuits by scanning organics with their Bio Scanalyzer.
  • The Bio Scanalyzer also produces Bio Data, which is used to create circuits, alongside material from the scanned organic.
  • WX-78’s circuits are powered by their electrical charge meter. The meter restores itself over time, and can also be restored by other means.
  • If WX-78 gets too wet, they begin losing electricity. If they run out of electricity, they begin to lose health.
  • WX-78 also loses electricity when they are starving, as they no longer have the energy to maintain their charge level.
  • WX-78 can eat gears to regain health, sanity, and hunger. If WX-78 dies, they will drop some of the gears that they have eaten.
  • Clockworks are less aggressive towards WX-78.
  • Additional notes: after downloading this update, you can get nine mystery boxes from the various events that took place during these updates (that’s 36 skins in total). Make sure to claim your present before October 15th!
