Loot Box

Loot Box 0[credit]

Ice: Trap
Strength: 3
Influence: 1

[subroutine] End the run unless the Runner pays 2[credit].

[subroutine] Reveal the top 3 cards of the stack. Add 1 of those cards to the grip and gain X[credit], where X is equal to that cardʼs play or install cost. The Runner shuffles the stack. Trash this ice.

Though many countries attempted to regulate digital loot boxes in the early 21st century, GameNET has managed to circumvent any such laws via explicit, transparent percentage rates… and some very determined lobbyists.

    NISEI Downfall Release Notes [NISEI Rules Team]

    What happens if Loki gains Loot Box’s subroutines and they resolve?

    With the recent changes to self-reference templating, “this ice” refers to Loki and Loki will trash itself when the subroutines resolve.


Well. It's happened. Netrunner has added Lootboxes. Time to ragequit like everyone else does when Lootboxes are added to a game.

Seriously though, this card looks pretty sweet. As a trap, it forces the Runner to pay credits to keep running, and gives ME credits (though I do have to make the tough choice of giving them a good card for those credits). Probably the best choice will be something that is a situational card that doesn't really hurt me in this matchup, but it will probably still be a tough choice. Loving it.

(Downfall era)
It's great that Loot Box forces a shuffle after you reveal the top 3. —
