Great perk special. Nice to have but don't use it solo because if it crashes your NCU you're prolly gonna get dead quick. At least it doesn't root you. :)

The duration of the crash is bugged too, lasts ~60 sec instead of 30 sec like its supposed to.

I must be one lucky mofo on that Random 100 Roll. I have never crashed my NCU yet in months of use. Seriously, how unlucky can you be to get a 99 or 100 on a Rand(100) on a regular basis? Goto and set Min=1 and Max=100 and start rolling and see how often 99 or 100 comes up.
