Omni-tool Upgrade

Doubled the time limit for bypass.

The unreliability of purely software-based security has given rise to electronic locks based on physical as well as electronic keys. Marketed as "unhackable," these locks have gained popularity. Omni-tool manufacturers responded by adding several universal key capabilities to modern omni-tools. These require some level of skill, like a lock pick, but software assistance makes it possible for competent operatives to bypass most locks in time. Improvements to scanning and auto-correction software make it possible to work locks over without triggering defenses.
