- This item can help when attempting the Mastery Rank 4 Test (advancing from Rank 4 to 5), in which you have to hack terminals against a time limit. Terminals will have up to 9 panels (more than the normal ones you encounter in game). 10 Ciphers are enough to pass the test with ease.
- While hacking, the Cipher can be quickly used by pressing . Currently, this will function regardless of which slot the ciphers are equipped into, and even if the player no longer has default key bindings for using items.
- Ciphers cannot be used during Sorties or Arbitrations.
- If the player is quick enough they can use the cipher before the puzzle appears
- A Cipher is an algorithm for decryption or encryption.
