INSTANTLY use on a dead enemy player in your crosshairs to reveal the location of all living enemy players.
— In-game description

Neural Theft is an ultimate ability for Cypher.


Neural Theft is an Intel ability that Cypher can instantly use on the corpse of any dead enemy agent in his crosshairs. Upon doing so Cypher will throw his hat towards the body. Once the hat reaches the corpse it will windup before revealing the locations of all living enemies remaining on the map. The reveal takes the form of one flash of a yellow outline of the agent.

Once an enemy agent has been killed, there is a limited amount of time that Cypher can use Neural Theft on that corpse before it times out.
