Buggable Furniture TypesEdit
There are exactly 5 types of Buggable Furniture in the game. Each type appears in different Rooms.
|Computer||Computer Room, Cipher Room|
|Couch||Lounge, Office, Storage Room|
|Painting||Cafeteria, Lounge, Office|
|Typewriter||Office, File Room|
- Main article: Bug
To install Bugs, Max needs to perform a Break-In, and must select a set of Bugs as part of her Gear for that Break-In. A set contains 10 bugs, meaning that 10 pieces of Buggable Furniture may be Bugged in each Break-In (since it is impossible to acquire more Bugs during a Break-In).
Locate a piece of Buggable Furniture, walk up to it, and press the "F3" key to install the Bug. One exception to this is the Painting, which must first be opened by hitting the "ENTER" key, then bugged, and then closed with "ENTER" to prevent enemy guards from raising the alarm - which they will do if they ever spot an open painting.
- Main article: Surveillance Quality
The Surveillance Quality Bonus you get for each bug installed depends on the type of Room where it is installed, rather than what kind of Buggable Furniture it is placed in.
|Room||Buggable Furniture appearing here||Quality|
|Lounge||Couch, Painting, Plant||+2%|
|Office||Couch, Painting, Plant, Typewriter||+4%|
Note that each room may only be bugged once per Break-In. Therefore, once a piece of Buggable Furniture has been Bugged, no other piece in the same room may be Bugged for the remainder of the Break-In, nor can the same piece be bugged twice during the same Break-In.
If Max leaves the building and then later breaks-in again, she may bug the same piece of furniture again as normal, thus increasing the wiretap level with each break-in. The percentage shown in the CIA office (under Active Wire Taps) may exceed 100% (even over 256%) although it's unknown if values about 100% have any effect.
