Probably the best tag punishment that is not a kill card (like High-Profile Target and BOOM!).

This combo very well with Public Trail. One tag is all it take to take out that expensive program or console. At midgame, taking out the console usually mean the runner must also trash a program, due to the lack of .

Retribution will be seen often in NBN deck, which usually have plenty of tags to give. At a cost of one influence and only 1 to use, it is very easy to splash it outside of Weyland.

Retribution is so easy to use that runner should always pack a backup of their breaker and console, or have the risk of being lock out of runner certain ices after having just one tag. Unlike the NBN equivalent, Self-Growth Program, Retribution actually trash the card, instead of putting it back in hand.

The art and quote is the coolest thing ever for Weyland. Amazing card.

(System Update 2021 era)

Going to see new life against all those Endurance big boat decks. Nothing like killing the entire crew and sinking the ship (thematically) purely from a single tag. Especially combined with the new tag power of Drago Ivanov.
