So criminals got a code gate breaker. What does everyone think, is it good enough to let them save some influence or is it just that bad?

I think my criminal decks will continue to borrow decoders from other factions.

It's not as bad as aurora. It's pretty on par with gordian, when it comes to tollbooth.

Is it awesome? no. I will be using it in my decks to save influence though.
It can get through tollbooth for the same as Gordon blade, but uses twice as many credits on the little stuff like enigma and viktor.

To me I think the main question seems to be, which is worse in comparison to the best ice breaker of its type, this in comparison to Gordian Blade or Aurora in comparison to Corroder. And I think that over all I'd rather run the Corroder. (Doesn't hurt that I can run 3x corroders for the same influence cost as 2x Gordian blade.)
A respectable option for Criminal - especially since it is optimal against the popular 'Tollbooth' ICE. Also the new Trace Amounts card 'E3 Feedback Implants' help this run cheaper.

This is so expensive against anything with 2 or more subroutines. I would really try to find the influence for a ZU.13 Key Master or a Yog.0 or just use Crypsis.
Actually once installed, it's a bit cheaper than ZU.13 Key Master when combined with an E3.
As E3 is a solid option against HB ices anyway, it gets a place in many criminals decks, so Peacock becomes a decent choice which saves lots of influence.
