Pulse Demons are dangerous beings that live in the electrically charged atmosphere of brown dwarf stars. They source energy directly from electricity around them and will almost instantly die if that power source is taken away. Pulse demons can often be found sulking around engineering syphoning every last bit of power they have access to. It's highly advised to avoid stepping a pulse demon, as some of the energy it's using will be transferred to you, burning you to a crisp, being shock immune will prevent this.

Spawning in as Pulse Demon

A Pulse Demon can be chosen to spawn in as a random medium Midround event. You spawn in a random powered cable in the maintenance area. "Demon" needs to be enabled in Game Preferences in order to get a chance to play Pulse Demon.

Hijacking The Party

Your main goal is to gain area control, hacking an APC will let you take control of an area and interface with machinery like a station assigned AI would. You can click on a camera in that area while in an APC to jump to it, letting you see more of your controlled area. You can drain hacked APCs of their power, which is nice in a pinch.

You don't have to drain just APCs, you will also get most of your electricity from draining SMESes, and you should make this a top priority as a Pulse Demon. Draining SMESes will allow you to upgrade yourself, making hijacking APCs for area control much easier. Some good upgrades to start with are:
Increase Capacity - Especially if you start draining SMESes, you want this to steal more power at a time, and upgrade more abilities at once.
Absorption - Very useful if you are mostly draining SMESes, this allows you to be even faster in obtaining more charge.
Speed - Hijacking APCs is critical for area control, and the base time to hack an APC is 30 seconds which is both slow and risky. Be aware with how many upgrades you get however, you may ran out of power and die.

The moment the crew is aware of your presence, you should consider investing in maximum HP, Efficiency and Endurance upgrades. If the crew is aware of you, they will come at you with tools such as Ion guns and EMPs. These are very dangerous and should be avoided at all cost. If you see someone with an Ion rifle, you can also try and EMP them so the charge of their gun will be drained. If the crew takes action via cutting cables and depowering the station, consider investing in Endurance, and find some undrained power sources, such as the Solar SMES and unhijacked APCs.

Two things will give you away; the light you emit and your sound. Pulse demons are loud, if someone hears a lot of shocking noises you're going to get called out. If someone sees a yellow ball of pain going under the floor, they'll call you out. Less charge means your light will be lower, but a smart player will still see you light up the room like the sun.


Below is a list of abilities that a Pulse Demon can unlock and use. The cost of each ability is equal to the upgrade cost * (the level of the spell * 1.5).

Fighting Against the Electric Menace


Avoid stepping on cables, they can husk you. Awful idea to try and pull up floor tiles while a demon is about, you can see the light it emits through the floor and it's just asking for trouble.
Insulated gloves make you immune to their shocks.
Dies to no power. if you shut off power, shut off ALL power, especially from the SMES units on more remote areas
Weakens and can die when travelling OUTSIDE cables. Especially when unupgraded. Without being upgraded it will die after leaving a cable, you can get a cheesy kill by cutting the cable it's on, sometimes.
Weak to EMPs. Ion rifle is a must.
Always gives off a dim yellow glow and emits very loud zapping noises.
