Saving cyborg characters

If I remember correctly it used to be possibble to save prototype cyborg NPCs using a control laptop or something. However I think the control laptop was moved to the aftershock mod. Is there another way to save them?

not that i’m aware of no. I don’t think they even spawn anymore

Scrambler grenades can also be used to save them, but are exclusively available from Hub 01.

The Hub’s fancy robot stun gun might also work.

As far as I know, @Junknown describes the current reasonable options, as the control laptop has been removed because it was overpowered.

It can be noted that EMP weapons seem to have about 10% chance to scramble the robotic target in addition to damaging it severely (with a 10% chance of killing the target directly on the first hit instead). Damaged cyborgs have a lower chance of surviving their operations, though.

With the exodii lore coming in, will there be any Prototype cyborgs anymore?
