Description


The brute force stat gives a chance to make a guaranteed capture when hunting ghosts (but not when hunting raid ghosts or any of the ghost monsters).

GUI-Brute force definition.png

You only see a message in your ghost journal about brute force after it has been used to cause the capture of a particular ghost.

Brute force-only ghosts

Some ghosts can only be captured through the actions of brute force. Even 1 brute force can ensure that you capture that difficult ghost—it just has to activate! Obviously, the larger the chance you have to activate brute force, the better your chances of catching a particularly difficult ghost.

Other ghosts

You will sometimes see that brute force has activated to capture a ghost that your setup would defeat, even without the use of brute force. This is part of normal gameplay. You cannot control when brute force is activated, you can only control the equipment that you put into a particular setup.

Companion augmentations

In addition to the equipment shown in the equipment index below, you may also be able to add brute force to your setup through an augmentation to your companion.

You can get a +1 brute force augmentation either from the normal augmentations list or through the supergroup two augmentations.

It is also possible to receive more than one brute force augmentation on a single companion (although this is very rare).
