Neural heat dump is a level 2 psycast that removes all the neural heat from the caster, at the expense of rendering the target colonist comatose.


There are two ways to acquire the psycast Neural heat dump:

  1. Upon reaching psylink level 2, a random psycast of level 2 is granted regardless of how this level up is achieved. This won't apply if the psycaster already knew one or more level 2 psycast.
  2. Neural heat dump can also be acquired from a psytrainer naming it. See the psytrainer page for further details.

  • Neural heat dump is good for burst-casting expensive combat psycasts such as berserk pulse, if you're willing to pay the price of putting a pawn out of action. Pacifists are a good choice if you don't need them to pull fallen allies out of battle.
    • The side effect, putting a pawn into a coma for a day, can also be useful to save a pawn from getting mauled by animal revenge, to prevent a sick pawn from having a mental break while they are in bed, and in various other situations.[Mental break?]
