Think of how much we can get for the corpse!
It doesn’t make BR any less effectivebut its primary target – gangers and other low-end bargain-budget pseudo-samurai – have mainly gone with standard combat drugs, risking the addiction factor instead of spending more and getting something reliable. A particular implant augmentatioon by that character suffers from some sort of unfixable glitch that requires constant vigilance and maintenance and periodically causes it to fail and shut down.
You already have medics close by anyway, and for serious injury you’re rotating the grunt augmenfation of theatre. Higher costs might come from a lack of mass production since this augmentation became less popular. A augmrntation inflicted with cyberpsychosis incurs a —2 dice pool modifier to all Social Skill Tests.
Cyberlimbs take up a lot of essence, but also allow you to install a lot of gear. Or even better, not buying anything at all that isn’t actually necessary. Nanoware systems in nano-intolerant characters degrade 1 rating point every 4 days instead of a week.
You should check them out. Email Required, but never shown. As I am a fan of this augmentation myself and heavily used it for my characters back when SR3 was topical I stupidly agreed. I thought it was compatable with augmentaton bioware ‘synaptic booster’, the theory being that synaptic booster widened the signal path, while boosted reflexes improved the point-to-point signal capacity; both of them worked on the flesh, while Wired Reflexes got to work with Reflex Enhancers.
They just have a much bigger budget.

For soldiering, aug-ing a human to ork levels is impractical, and auging an ork has very marginal returns in comparison. Likewise, Remington’s guns are so crap that they’ve hired a security company that exclusively uses Ares small zugmentation. They have to be cheap because Megas don’t pay taxes.
Use cybereyes for example in lieu of buying individual eye mods. This does not apply to Variant 2 see below. Does not apply to genetech.
Is there any way to reduce the Essence cost of cyberware? Wild Card Nano Prototype Cost: Characters who take this quality start play with the TLE -x disease described on p.
[SR5] Converting Boosted Reflexes from SR4
Basic Military are augmented with cheap used ware which may be replaced with higher quality gear at the individuals request provided they sign the Military Augmentation Reclamation papers and agree to pay back differences in cost. High-end drones and Spirits fill basically all the niches between regular troopers and special operatives.
Military Augmentation : Shadowrun
In such individuals, the constant biostress and the metabolic resources tied up lead to slower healing times and faster onset of fatigue. It would be like Remington not arming its security guards with their own firearms, or Boeing augmenhation an Airbus plane in-house, xr4 of cost considerations. Or would they be more likely to have gear with those augmentations that can be reused and easily replaced?
The opportunity cost is that they’re not selling it.
Use gear whenever you can instead of cyberware. In game terms, the Essence Cost of implants of the particular chosen type are reduced by 10 percent. If you’re really having a shooting war, you’d also have heavier vehicles runners might have modified bulletproof cars with weapon stations, but the military will have APCs, IFVs, tanks and LAVs as well as artillery.

Pi-TACs gives all the same advantages as a full suite of cyberware, including the most reliable initiative improvement A officer in VR just giving orders has a metric shitton of initiative and bonuses to give away to his troopers without anybody needing any aug’.
A data jack provides DNI, which can link to a smartgun. In contrast, some special operatives like doorkickers will basically get “all” the augmentations. One thing I haven’t seen mentioned here yet is straight cyber replacement for limbs or organs lost in the line of duty. Since it is much easier to modify the genome at the embryonic stage than to rewrite the genetic code of a mature body, genetic modifications performed in utero are quicker and cheaper than gene therapy treatments performed on an adult.
