Researchers who don't upgrade the fucking ORM or department protolathes.
You can get tier 3 bins and manipulators, tier 2 everything else at round start. If the miners drop off the dock silver, you can get a bluespace RPED within 2 minutes of round start. Almost everyone will open their doors for a scientist carrying an RPED, and you can have the entire station upgraded within 5 minutes if you move quick.
Why the FUCK do I keep returning after the first ash storm as a miner, only to find the ORM still at base levels? Stop being a bunch of fucking circuit jerkers buying shit you can't even build, and upgrade the fucking station. It's your job as RnD.

and even if he hasn't killed any megafauna or found anything interesting he can still defend himself with his tools quite well, especially if upgraded fully
i forgot about his 40 damage infinite gun lol
20 damage on the station.

Really, everyone likes to complain that miners are SO OP, but they aren't. Their gear is all RNG based, and only skilled miners can actually return to the station as an lavaland god. The rest die stupid deaths. I've succeeded my "Kill a shaft miner" objective without ever going planet side, because something killed them for me. I am honestly more afraid of a skilled chemist, botanist, or scientist than I am a miner.
