The Speed Booster hypo temporarily doubles your speed for a duration of twenty seconds. Popular among high-school students for the dangerous street sport of "Crash Careening", this hypo can also be invaluable in emergencies.
For fastest access in an emergency, use the Options Panel to assign a hotkey to "Use Speed Booster."
Even With a low Agility level, these hypos make you move so fast that any impact in terrain result in damage or death.
With that, when on the decks of the Von Braun this may be useful for moving down a corridor quickly. Late game there are just too many possible items to collide with.
This hypo could potentially be used as an alternative to increasing the agility skill and only have the hypos used when needed.
It should be noted though the skill still needs to be increased to meet minimum requirements like for the Mark VI Laser Rapier.
