Re: Remove disarm

RNG is what makes disarm an interesting mechanic. It makes mobs of players more dangerous than lone individuals, it gives ranged weapons a strong advantage, and it's not so predictable that melee weapons are useless.

Re: ITT we brainstorm uses for BZ

Re: ITT we brainstorm uses for BZ

once a gas is out in the air, there's no way to keep it from spreading - making any practical use of it impossible. Even plasma has no uses, other than making bombs. It's also a grief gas, but it's around because you can actually use it as antag, and it's well-established enough as a grief gas that...

Re: ITT we brainstorm uses for BZ

There are other things that fit thematically with freon but probably aren't as sensible to add. Cooling oxygen is a classic part of bomb making, but doesn't involve freon. Gas freezers should in theory use some sort of refridgerant chemical ('freon' commonly refers to a particular refrigerant in rea...

Out of the external threat modes, we have nuke, blob, and wizard.

Pedantic, but the detective is defined by *two* objects: the scanner and the revolver.
