To make meth without a chem dispenser you will need the following:

A grinder
A chem master // both of which can be found on the medical program holodeck

2x lighters
4x glowsticks
1x toner cartridge
5x matches
3x twinkies
1x lightbulb
1x spraycan

Grind all of the above, try to do each thing seperately and use the chem master to bottle each reagent to prevent unwanted mixtures. Once separated and measured out, mix them all together into the beaker and gently heat it up with either a lighter, a match or a welder. The mixture should produce about 40u of meth with 30u ephedrine remainder, slot the beaker into the chem master and print off as many pills in whatever ratio you like

Though of course nothing is more robust than just mixing as many poisons as possible into a syringe because they'll all process at once.
Unless that's somehow changed.

There's a lot of robust drinks and it breaks my heart to see bartenders run off never to be seen again the moment a declaration of war is made. Here's a few not everyone seem to know about that are relatively easy to make:

Bloody Mary: Restores lost blood.
Brave Bull: Essentially gives you temporary extra health, which can be enough to stop you from going at a snail pace when hurt, or going into crit before you can get treatment. Don't underestimate it.
Quad Sec: Heals brute damage for security jobs (lawyer included). Easy to make.
Doctor's Delight: This one's pretty well known but hard to make sometimes. Meta and Delta have a beaker of cryoxadone in the maint bar.
Nuka Cola: Makes you super fast, but also gives you space drug overlay and makes you jittery, so best used in moderation. Mix with tea to counter jitteriness.
Hearty Punch: One sip will take most people out of crit. Easy to make, just need a lighter to heat it up. A 90u recipe will make 6u, you can run out of power pretty quick if you want to make a bunch. Also heals clone damage!

Use your preferred combination of the above and put it in a cigarette to use before a fight. Even better if you have an e-cig you won't have to light it beforehand.

I like to make a mix of Hearty Punch+Brave Bull+Bloody Mary to get people out of crit and Nuka Cola+Brave Bull for when you find yourself in the middle of a fight, about to die and you need to get the hell out of there right now and run across the entire station to reach medbay in the next 5 seconds.

I just tested it, it does work

Also it's better to use rollies (Midori Tabako) since they can store 50u instead of 15

Mediborgs can dispense spaceacillin. So if it's nuke ops and they release fungal TB, you can speed-treat infected people by jabbing them with your hypo and then popping them in the sleepers to administer the salbutamol. Tried this yesterday and while it was kind of annoying trying to do stuff with no gravity, I think things went pretty well. ^^

A lot of people tend to mess up treating plasmamen when it comes to most medical ailments that can't be fixed with a patch/spray. With regard to surgery, just do the procedure on a roller bed under a shower! The water will prevent the plasmaman from igniting, meaning that you can operate on them safely.

as a mediborg, rather than just applying one specific chem 3-4 times with your hypospray based on what damage they have (e.g. 20u bicard for someone with a bunch of brute) use the other two simple heal chems once as well (20u bicard + 5u kelo + 5u antitox). This causes them to mix into tricord, which causes faster healing (15u bicard + 15u tricord). If you make too much tricord in the patient you can OD them to shit

also salglu exists for if there're no blood bags / nobody with hands to set up IVs for you

Just found this out and I'm surprised I don't see it done every war ops round because it's ridiculously good and literally just requires enough access to use the holodeck and autolathe (which is none on all maps but box). It's already easy as it is and basically trivial if you have access to chemistry.

Make a dead man's switch grenade (signaler-igniter in casing, signaler-health sensor in backpack. Don't forget to actually turn it on.), fill it with synthflesh (grind up to 4 wood, grind 1 stack + 1 brute patch, add blood).

If you went all the way, two large beakers of synthflesh will heal you for 60 brute and 60 burn. If you have a bit of a split between the two types of damage, you will literally spring back from crit to full health instantly. The big side effect is that people near you will get some of that healing too, which can be a good or a bad thing. You probably want the guy with the disk to survive no matter what.

I just did a couple days ago in medbay.

Plasmamen can breathe oxygen if they get lung transplant (the one from RnD) but it does not stop them from getting on fire hence why I did it ^^

As the janitor, a full water tank backpack only needs 20u of space cleaner to work at full capacity. 10u will work if you only spray 2 tiles at once.

You can take chemicals out of (some) containers that can't be manually accessed (i.e. spray bottles, water misters) by using the ChemMaster in the holodeck

Artificial limbs can't be healed by cryo, but the machine won't eject you or turn off either when the rest of your body is fully healed. Since there is no way to self-eject while sleeping, if you get put in cryo with a damaged artificial limb your round is over, you may as well ghost out immediately.

I don't recall seeing this on the wiki anywhere, but if you're in need of blood you can mix even 1u with any amount of unstable mutagen and all of the mutagen will be turned into blood. 299u of mutagen in a bluespace beaker can be turned into 300u of blood with a single dropper.

Useful if there's no chef, as a quick-fingered chemist can shit out enough synthmeat to feed the station for a whole shift with access to this much blood.

I did not know this, My usual method of blood collection is using a IV stand on succ-mode with a regular beaker as the container. Bodies hold around 500 units of blud if they died from non-brute damage.

On this note, if you get a little extra blood pumped into your system, it won't normalise to 100%. So long as you don't bleed it back out, you keep that extra blood.

Consider also that a spessman's cardiovascular system can hold up to 2000cl of blood (357%), meaning one could potentially manufacture gallons of the stuff and inject it into oneself for safekeeping, or for giving the janitor hell when you get beaten over the head. Or maybe give a changeling a hard time trying to suck over three and a half times as much blood out of a body to husk you, I don't actually know if that's dependant on blood amount or health.

You don't need help for syndieborgs, AI core lasers shoot them

On a similar note, Malf AIs can directly control turrets, which is like your one solid defense against desynced borgs (unless they know the map enough to path around your wall flashes).

You can directly cure romerol zombies with a hypospray if you turn the zombies into lizards.

Also, using the summon thingy spell, whatever the thing that recalls an item to your hand is, while your summonable item is in a locker, summons the whole locker (at least if it's locked) I can see use for this, especially for when a shaft miner gets wizard gear as a reward for doing his job for five minutes.

It's even better with zombie mutation toxin when you could get it
The zombies can't tell who's an ally or enemy

You can really have fun with this. If the locker is loaded in a mech, then summoning the item moves the whole mech over. You can also use it on an MMI or battery inside a borg to summon the borg to your side.
