Computer Science is a skill in Wasteland 2.

Characteristics[]

Take this skill if you want to know more than how to turn it off and turn it on again. Allows the user to interface, hack or repair computers and other similar equipment found in the wasteland. Can also be used to rewire robots and some synthetics to fight on your side.

Importantly, it also has an offensive use: Using it on enemy robots allows Rangers to turn them permanently over to their side. They will self-destruct at the end of the round, though the caveat is that the Rangers do not receive experience for destroying them that way.
