Upgrade Your Game

New FAQ and Tournament Rules are Available for Android: Netrunner


Each year, new Runners find their way onto the Net and Corporations around the world add to their already impressive security systems. With each addition, new codes are craftted, new rules are written, and new challenges arise. Those who fail to keep up are left behind, or worse.

Don’t be one of those who finds yourself breached and derezzed. Expand your net knowledge by checking out the new FAQ (pdf, 2.5 MB) and tournament rules (pdf, 6.1 MB).


These changes will go into effect on April 15th, 2015.

Hello Android: Netrunner players!

Welcome to FAQ 2.0! First of all, don’t worry about the new version number; we are just updating it to mark the new year and some minor changes.

The new FAQ answers questions about cards through the Order and Chaos Expansion and clarifies the timing of nested triggers. It also introduces two errata to the game. Both errata add the word “installed” to a card in an effort to simplify its use during the course of a game. Before, the Runner could choose to trash a program from his or her grip as the result of the Burke Bugs subroutine, which was not the intent of the card. In addition, Q-coherence Chip had a similar interaction that was not intuitive; whenever a program was trashed, even when not installed, the Chip was also trashed. Now, both of these cards only affect installed cards.

The only change to the tournament rules is an increase in time during elimination rounds. Instead of 35 minutes, players now have 40 minutes to finish a game. This makes it less likely that an elimination game goes to time, and we feel confident that every tournament-viable deck should be able to complete a game within this extended
time period.

That’s it for this update. Thanks for your continued support, and always be running!
