    Is it possible to create a knife build that uses psy?

    Please advise how to go about it. I'll play on hard difficulty.

    To my knowledge only fists and fist weapons work with Emission.

    no

    while knife build needs 5 will, its very feat starved. You wont have anything left.

    Additionally there is no synergy.

    Temporal Manipulation can be combined with any build.

    Maybe but that does not mean any build with TM in will be automatically good.

    But it will be better than the same build without TM.

    TM is godly for low ap attacker builds. crit knifer focusing on cheap shots/critical power/ripper etc. can be EXTREMELY deadly when you can expose weakness and stab thier buttholes a gazzilion times in one turn (just keep some ap for disables to go into stealth again).

    Max DEX versatality smg burster/commando is amazing with TM as well ( though arguably tincan AR burster with similar setuip is still superior).

    But a psi monk has way more synergy for the same build (if you take Psychokinesis too).

    Let me not even mention stealth/trap/sniper with ambush, crafted smart equipment AND TM... really rapey dude.

    well you could use psychostatic for crit chance and stuns, premeditation for free move with no action point cost and as others said temporal manipulation is great on every build, I haven't used thought control or metathermics much but I'm sure there's something in both trees to utilize, you won't be as strong as pure psi most likely, but I'm sure it's viable

    forgot to mention you can set up a forcefield and isolate enemies or just camp and wait for them to charge through your 1 tile chokepoint and stab them
