Now, the Darknet File itself isn't particularly difficult. The PICUS servers rely on tricky gimmicks like hidden walls and platforms rather than brute force of enemies. What was difficult was the pre-requisite server S02_STOCKADE in \\NETWORK_4A, which you need to complete to access \DF4_BYLINE for the Darknet File.

This one is very challenging, and you'll likely need several attempts to get a pattern down. I was working with 550 energy and 350 health (before modifiers) and quite a few Biocells and Hypostims and I still barely made it out, even despite several attempts. What makes this especially difficult is this server has a 300%+ and a 200%+ Machine Pistol cheat modifier, preventing you from adding any of your own. And you really don't want to be fighting on this server.

I think it's disingenuous to give exact gear road-maps, since a lot of gear that you personally will have will depend on RNG. So the best and only advice I can give is plan a route and focus on just cloaking the whole way -- and then when you run out of Biocells, rely on tanking hits and replenishing via Hypostims. I'd also highly recommend an Energy Max + Cheat Modifier to give you that extra amount of energy. Don't hack anything that isn't hiding a data server, don't go anywhere that doesn't have a data server, don't deal with enemies at all, and try and stave off alarms for as long as you can.

You need 60 TB to finish it, and there's only 100 available. There's an absurd amount of defenses and annoyingly guarded data towers (like, behind glass for example, or inside of data/energy/life sapping floor traps. To make matters even worse, from personal experience... the very first time I was successful, the exit didn't open for some reason. It just never opened. Which was annoying. Hopefully that doesn't happen to you.
