Traits are simply properties of the weapons and gear you find. While all item types have base properties, traits make them unique and some are worth more than others.

List[edit | edit source]

Trait Type Effect Evaluation
Impact Grenade fuze Detonates as soon as it hits a person or surface, or comes to rest
Timed Grenade fuze Detonates after 2 seconds
Remote Grenade fuze Once thrown, detonate this at any time from the pause screen Very good if combined with Subverter and/or Sticky Trait
Explosive Grenade warhead Kills everything (not shielded) in range and destroys turrets Kaboom! Found on Grenades
Subverter Grenade warhead Hacks everything in the blast radius when "exploding" Cool thing against clusters of shielded guards. Can hack already-placed jammers!
Crash Grenade warhead Crashes everything in the blast radius when "exploding". Quiet. Useful for groups of shielded guards protecting/-ed by a turret; useful for silent approach
Breach Grenade warhead Destroys the room. Can cut ships. Everyone in nearby rooms gets sucked into space. Not that useful with most vows, clauses or capture missions (unless you're good with the pod and/or own Angel), but beautiful
Sticky Grenade attribute Sticks to the first person it comes in contact with Can be funny sometimes. Create walking bombs!
Medium Capacity Capacity Can be used 3 times Useful, especially if paired with Restockable or Recharging
High Capacity Capacity Can be used 5 times Very useful. Keep, especially if paired with Restockable or Recharging
