Craft Specs Overhaul in Update 2.0

Summary of the 2.0 Crafting Changes

Weapon and Quickhack Specs Can Drop from Enemies

In Update 2.0, weapon and quickhack crafting specs can now drop from defeated enemies. The tier at which the crafting spec drops seems to be quite random, with Tier 5 specs being available as early as the first 10 character levels of the game.

Terminals Now Give Quickhack Specs

Jacking into Terminals and hacking them will now have chance to reward players with either quickhack specs, quickhacks, and quickhack crafting components.

Due to drastic pricing adjustments across the board, selling surplus quickhacks after Update 2.0 will be one of the easiest ways to make money in the game.

Iconic Weapon Specs are Still Available

Despite the changes to crafting, Iconic Weapon crafting specs are still where they used to be prior to Update 2.0. However, do note that if you obtain them during early game, you will need to craft them at a much lower tier than before (Tier 2), making upgrades costly.

New Iconic Weapons Added to the Game in Update 2.0

Update 2.0 also adds some new Iconic Weapons into the game. Some are entirely new like the Nehan Iconic Knife which you can get during The Heist, and some are old, common items that were upgraded to Iconic in 2.0 like the Sasquatch's Hammer.
