An Advanced Electronic Codebreaker is a superior version of an Electronic Codebreaker, not because it is more powerful but because it is more clever. While a normal codebreaker will attempt to brute-force its way past a security keypad the advanced model actually tricks the system into giving up the code. The device can take between one to ten minutes to break a keypad code of any length and will not set off any alarms.
Because of its nature an advanced electronic codebreaker is a highly restricted item, found only among the intelligence agencies of the Inner Sphere and the Clans. On occasion these items will appear on the black market at a 100% or more markup.
