Adeptus mechanicus and mechanicum, the achilles heel that is scrap code… – forum – dakkadakka electricity magnetism and electromagnetic theory pdf

Listened through the audiobooks for Mechanicum and Skitarius recently and noticed that Scrap Code comes up a lot. Scrap code being the daemon possessed code of machines. Now this sounds deadly and dangerous on many levels. Many infected machines started praising the Dark Gods after being infected with it and several cities just went into complete meltdown due to it.

However, there doesn’t appear to be any evidence that Scrap Code affects any other faction aside from Adeptus Mechanicus and Mechanicum (Imperium factions grouped into this as most of their vehicles are handled by the Mechanicus). So what do I mean?

• Orks salvage any technology they find and repurpose it. As of yet I don’t know how daemon engines fall into this. It could be assumed that Mek Boyz don’t use code in the way the Tech Priests do. But Orks must have some code base, though it could be more complex than Adeptus Mechanicus Code or just different. In my head I can imagine Ork Meks trying to break daemon engines and filtering out Chaos code instinctively based on the Brainboyz knowledge. So Chaos might be able to infect some vehicles, the effect might only be temporary.

• Tau use AI and I imagine that that is more prone to Scrap Code attacks. They don’t have a religion based on technology, but it could be possible that Scrap Code could affect drones and other AI driven systems, but as far as cybernetics go and their in built immunity to the Warp Tau wouldn’t be at risk for being turned Chaos by Scrap Code.
