Analysis

Effects

A bionic stomach improves a pawn's metabolism by 25%. This, in turn, slightly improves the rest rate multiplier by about 8%, meaning the colonist will require less sleep. The bionic stomach is a cheaper way to reduce time sleeping than upgrading to a royal bed, however both can be combined.

Installing a stomach can be used to instantly treat gut worms as the new stomach replaces the diseased part. With it installed, further infections are also prevented.

Of all the bionic parts in the game, excluding the bionic spine, it is likely the least useful, only improving rest rate multiplier. However, it is still worth installing if there is one to hand, as this bonus is still significant.

Eating speed and food poisoning chances are unaffected.

Comparisons

The Royalty DLC introduced a number of Stomach replacements with their own advantages and disadvantages. All three of these variants include the benefits offered by the bionic stomach in addition to their unique benefits however they are also susceptible to EMP, causing the pawn to vomit uncontrollably for a short length of time.

Detoxifier Stomach

In addition to the normal benefits of a bionic stomach, the detoxifier stomach eliminates the risk of food poisoning at the cost of vulnerability to EMP.

Reprocessor Stomach

In addition to the normal benefits of a bionic stomach, the reprocessor stomach reduces the amount of food a pawn requires by 25% at the cost of vulnerability to EMP.

Nuclear Stomach

In addition to the normal benefits of a bionic stomach, the nuclear stomach combines the benefits of both the detoxifier and reprocessor stomachs, reduces the amount of food a pawn requires by a whopping 75% and eliminating the risk of food poisoning at the cost of vulnerability to EMP and inflicting torso cancer on average once 120 in-game days.
