Biotics manipulate mass effect fields using dozens of element zero nodules within their nervous system that react to electric stimuli from the brain. Bio-amps allow biotics to synchronize the nodules so they can form fields large and strong enough for practical use. Amplifiers can improve a specific attribute or skill. An implant is a surgically-embedded interface port into which amps are "plugged in". They are also known as 'wetware' because of their cybernetic nature. A Biotic may only use 1 Amp at a time. Some amps require the user to have a certain level of competence with biotic powers before they can be used. They must have a Base Attack+Biotic Mastery equal to the listed number, or the amp will not work.
