The monk's weakness is ranged attacks. This includes thrown items. Also, while a fully leveled monk will still go down under the might of the stun baton, he will not be damaged by it. If you want to win against a monk, throw tiles at him!

Change the AI slipper foam that hacked/emagged cleanbots use to actual cleaner foam. Reagent code has improved greatly since I first coded the foam function for cleanbots. The difference is that the foam will still slip people in an AoE, just that it actually makes sense.
