'''Bio Leech''' was an evil ability utilized by [[Cole MacGrath]] in both ''[[Infamous]]'' and ''[[Infamous 2]]''. It allowed him to drain or "leech" a victim's bio-electric energy, an action that would result in the death of the victim, as the nervous system runs off of neuro-electrical pulses.
   
'''Bio-Leech''' is an inherently evil ability of [[Cole MacGrath|Cole's]]. Once you find an injured pedestrian or stunned enemy, stand over them and lock on. When you select the Bio-Leech option, you have to rapidly press the square button in order to help Cole overpower his target. Once Cole overpowers his victim, he grabs their face and sucks out the energy contained in the target's own bio-electric field. This, of course, results in the death of the victim as the nervous system runs off of neuroelectrical pulses.

The leeched energy acts just like the energy sucked from [[Empire City]]'s power grid using [[Electric Drain]], the energy will heal Cole completely and will recharge all his [[battery Core]]s, in addition to gaining some negative [[Karma]] and a single experience point. Although the energy will heal and recharge Cole almost instantly, it would be unwise to perform this ability in the heat of combat, due to fact that Cole is extremely vulnerable during the action and the sheer time it takes to overpower the downed target. The ability may be used as a last resort in an attempt to get Cole full charged again.

Bio Leech was an evil ability utilized by Cole MacGrath in both Infamous and Infamous 2. It allowed him to drain or "leech" a victim's bio-electric energy, an action that would result in the death of the victim, as the nervous system runs off of neuro-electrical pulses.

DescriptionEdit

To use Bio Leech, the player must approach a downed civilian or enemy and press L1 to go into Bio Leech mode, and continue mashing the button to complete the sequence.

The leeched energy acts just like the energy sucked from Empire City's power grid using Electric Drain. The energy will heal Cole completely and recharge all of his Battery Cores, in addition to gaining some negative Karma and a single experience point. Although, the energy will heal and recharge Cole almost instantly, it would be unwise to perform this ability in the heat of combat, due to fact that Cole is extremely vulnerable during the action and the sheer time it takes him to overpower the downed target. The ability may be used as a last resort in an attempt to get Cole full charged again.

If used on a Conduit, the XP description says "Dark Feast" instead of "Drain," however, unlike the "Tough Collar" bonus from using Arc Restraint on a Conduit, Dark Feast does not increase the amount of XP the player earns. The player unlocks the "The Hunger" trophy by Bio Leeching 100 enemies.

When playing with Evil Karma, it is recommended that the player Bio Leeches as much as possible, for it heals Cole's wounds, restores his electricity and yields him Evil Karma. When playing with Good Karma, however, the player should only Bio Leech in cases of emergency, when Cole's health and/or electricity is low.

    • In InFamous however, doing this on any NPC will always result in instant death, no matter if you had finished the button sequence before the final shot.
  • Occasionally, a glitch may occur in which Cole Bio Leeches a civilian and then remains in the area, resulting in the leeched civilian getting back up and walking away as if nothing happened.
    • This does not occur with enemies, however.
