How to use Brain Drive in Scarlet Nexus

Here's how players can enter a state of brain drive and why they may want to.

Brain drive is a unique buff state that players can get into when they either deal damage or take it over time in Scarlet Nexus. When activates brain drive this way, they will gain several buffs such as increased damage, faster movement, faster and higher psychokinesis speed.

That said, if you want to use brain drive, you will need to defeat enemies or take damage repeatedly. Over time and eventually, the brain drive bar will fill, and you will enter a state of brain drive. Once you get into a state of brain drive, you will get the following bonuses. 

  • Increased attack damage
  • Reduced psychokinesis gauge consumption
  • Reduced lifting time for psychokinesis objects
  • Faster movement speed
  • Bonus EXP rate

However, you will need to use brain drive effectively when it activates as it will eventually go down over time, so we recommend going all in and attacking aggressively once brain drive activates. You will also find yourself earning a bunch of extra EXP, as it is one of the decent perks of going into brain drive. The more others you kill will also increase the bonus you gain, so we recommend going all out to make the most of the bonus.

You can even increase the amount of EXP you earn with a certain skill in the brain drive skill tree on the brain map. Along with this, there are also a ton of other skills that can buff and improve the effects of brain drive, so we recommend experimenting and seeing what works with you.
