Hulks and radios.

So basically, when an asshole geneticist gives away hulk, and the radio is being a screamfest, what should you do?

Call the shuttle.

Hulk is basically all access to anyone that gets it, with the added benefit that you can delete walls just to piss people off even if you didn't want to break in. Once it's out in the open, the round is over.

Otherwise, I guess tell the person to disable their headset and beat them up if they don't.

Then die to a ton of shitters with or without hulk killing you for revenge because you technically escalated above stun combat to lethal with your 3 damage syringe.

1. Make a Policy Discussion thread
or
2. Rebalance hulk so you can remove that garbage

Hulks being insanely fucking annoying is part of their balance. It's so that you need at least 2 braincells to turn off your radio and hide the fact you have it.

Kill them. Hulks who are actively destroying things are valid, and hulks only scream on radio when they're destroying things. So, just go and kill them.

As another point, anyone being excessively and incessantly annoying on radio doesn't take much IC justification to slam full of shotgun rounds.

Hell if I see a single hulk spamming up radio I tend to give them a shot across the bows before hitting them with a BSA.

Just make them crush their headsets in a fit of green rage. Although every having AA is basically shuttle call time anyway.

This is basically my argument. Smart people turn their headset off so nobody knows they're on a rampage. The annoying sound makes you a bigger target, which is almost always bad since barely anyone gets hulk for a helpful reason. I'm with Denton on there being a delay in the message repetition, or maybe just a random counter or an in-universe excuse of a "filter loud noises" headset setting so not every scream gets broadcast to radio, but at least a few should be just to let people know.

Find them and shoot them with a mutadone syringe.
