Contact levels are gone. A Contact is just a Contact now. This also means a minor change to the character sheets and character creation. I couldn't recall a single instance where the a contact's level came into play in the years i have been playing the game.
A few of the Edges has been changed as well.
- The most important is that the Rigger edges no longer require any Hacking skill. They now require Repair (drone) skill ranks instead.
- Drone Controller has been changed to Veteran, since i found that a sidekick with two initiative passes was a bit much for a Seasoned character.
- Combat Biker now requires Driving at D8, instead of the Ace edge.
- Sprawlsman has been clarified a bit.
