Strength: 5
Influence: 1

[subroutine] Do 2 net damage.

[subroutine] End the run.

Most runners do their business in full-sim, with their rigs wired directly into their brains. The setup has a large number of advantages, with the runner able to process data and input commands far faster than a traditional meat-bound system. But it also means greater risk.

Wall of Thorns is a solid card that doesn't see as much play as it deserves


  • It's a barrier in-faction for Jinteki
  • Punishes fracterless face-checkers with net damage
  • 5 cr to break with Corroder


Tsurugi has a similar dual role of end-the-run and net-damage, and at time of writing is more popular. [citation needed]
