|Mastermind: Controller||Tier 2|
|Basic (2 pt): The power and range of your intimidation is increased by 50%.|
|Ace (4 pt): You can now have 2 converted enemies at the same time.|
The basic version of this skill increases your intimidation (shouting) range by 50%.
The basic skill also has an unmentioned effect, listed for Stockholm Syndrome; It increases the time civilians stay intimdated by 50%.
Lastly, it also has an unmentioned intimidation aura (unmentioned). Refer to this guide for its effects.
The aced version allows you to convert 2 dominated law enforcers. In order to use this you are required to own Joker Basic, otherwise it has no effect at all.
Its basic effect of allowing you to shout further also has uses in marking (which uses shout distance) or telling civilians to lay down. It cannot be used to increase Inspire range. It's not really noticable if using High Value Target, which increases it by 2000%, and is not advised to get this bonus if using said skill.
Only bother with the Aced version of this skill if already possessing Joker, or it will have no effect. This skill allows you to utilise another hostage guard as additional damage dealer/soaker, provided Partners In Crime is also purchased preventing them to meet their untimely demise early on.
- There is no increase in power from the Basic skill, despite being claimed so by the text.
- Patch #107 moved the "Civilians remain intimidated 50% longer" part of Stockholm Syndrome to this skill, as can be seen here. However, the descriptions were not changed accordingly.
- The same patch removed AP rounds' damage bonus, but that has been reverted since.
