Cryptographic Sequencer
Cryptographic Sequencer
Found in: Ordered via syndicate uplink, costs 4 telecrystals.
Used for: Gaining entrance to restricted lockers, unlocking hidden features in machinery, bending borgs to your will.
Strategy: Use this to unlock special properties of some machinery.
Description
Also called an Emag (electromagnetic card), it allows you to open certain things (and break them in the process) and can alter many many things on the station.
Also has several special functions, as it can hack cyborgs to serve you, cause multiple electronic devices to malfunction and become deadly, and can really ruin an engineer's day.

You can use it on Robots, to make them generally malicious to the station, they can be used on certain computers to gain unusual effects, the most useful of which being allowing you drop the emergency shuttle countdown to 10 seconds if you use it on the shuttle computer. It also works on the QM's computer to order spec ops crates, and is just overall brilliant for QMs, allowing them to unlock crates. Emagging something is different from Hacking something.

Things it can be used on

NOT Airlocks

Since April 2020 emag doesn't work on airlocks (or most windoors). Instead you need an Airlock Authentication Override Card.

Cyborg

Unlocks the panel if it's closed.

Rewrites cyborg's laws to obey you if opened, and unlocks some special modules depending on the cyborg type.

Doing so will cause the interface to "look damaged..." for anyone who opens/closes the panel afterwards, making the emagging evident. Cyborgs slaved to a malfunctional AI can not be emagged.

Cleanbot

Unlocks the panel if it's closed.

If its panel is opened with a screwdriver, it will spray slippery acid foam.

ED-209 and secbots

Unlocks the panel if it's closed.

If its panel is opened with a screwdriver, it will attack everyone in sight with lasers.

Floorbot

Unlocks the panel if it's closed.

If its panel is opened with a screwdriver, it will deconstruct floors into open space.

Medbot

Unlocks the panel if it's closed.

If its panel is opened with a screwdriver, it will inject 5u chloral hydrate and damage you based on what they would have healed (brute if you don't need treatment) per step.

Honkbot

Unlocks the panel if it's closed.

If its panel is opened with a screwdriver, it will play disturbing noises and HONK people. If attacked, it will HONK the offender into oblivion.

Hygienebot

Cleans people with fire instead of water.

Mulebot

Unlocks controls.

Supply computer

Unlocks buying/selling contraband as well as 1 new item:
The 'Spec Ops' crate with a box of EMP grenades, 3 smoke bombs, a sleepypen and an incendiary grenade, costing 2000 credits.

Express supply console

Lets supply pods crash on a random part of the station instead of cargo bay.

Cloning pod

Ejects the cloned person regardless of condition.

Chem Dispenser

Adds Carptoxin, Toxin, Morphine, Space Drugs and Miner's Salve to the reagent list.

Soda Dispenser

Adds Thirteen Loko, Whiskey Cola, Mindbreaker Toxin and Tirizene to the reagent list.

Booze Dispenser

Adds ethanol, iron, mint toxin and Atomic Bomb to the reagent list.

Mutagen Dispenser (From the podpeople lavaland ruin)

Adds liquid plasma to the reagent list.

The Orion Trail

Unlocks 'Realism Mode' - if you die in the game, you die in real life. If you win, you get a kickass toy spaceship that explodes like a minibomb.

Arcade

Turns a regular arcade machine into Outbomb Cuban Pete, which is harder than the standard game. If a player wins, he gets a bomb and a hat. If the player fails, he is gibbed. Un-emags after a victory or if the machine is screwdrivered.

Communications console

Reroutes it, allowing you to send a message to the Syndicate. This sends a message to game admins. Can be restored.

Holodeck computer

Disables safety protocols, allowing you to run the Wildlife Simulation (Spawns several hostile Holocarp), the Burn Simulation (Fills the entire deck with plasma before igniting - Spills out of the holodeck quickly) or the Bees Simulation (Fills the holodeck with bees that inject random toxins, some of which are very dangerous).

Message monitor

Prints out the password and temporary disables the console.

Emergency shuttle console

Shortens launch to 10 seconds.

Allows anyone to pass.

APC

Permanently unlocks interface. Locks the AI out. Turns the APC blue, making it look as if a Malfunctioning AI had hacked it.

Sleeper

Scrambles the chemical buttons, remapping each button to another chemical. (NOTE: Sleepers have been removed from all /tg/ maps and replaced with Stasis Beds.)

Emitter

Unlocks interface if locked.

R&D console

Removes access restrictions. Currently pointless.

Changes the announcement messages and prevents interaction until fixed.

Point Claim Console

Allows prisoners to move the labor shuttle. Does not announce returns to security.

Meteor Shield Satellite

Disables the shield and doubles the chances of meteors.
Anyone can check the status by using a multitool on it - DEBUG_MODE means that it's emagged.

Button

Removes access restrictions.

Causes the slot machine to throw coins instead of dropping them, injuring or even killing the winner loser.

Firing Pin

Removes authorization checks.

Portable Generator

Removes upper limit for power output.

E-Cigarette

Creates a large smoke cloud when worn, but also has a small chance of making a small explosion.

Geiger Counter

Allows the Geiger counter to irradiate people it scans. The Geiger counter automatically charges up to 20 rads and can store up to 25 rads if it is irradiated by another source. Irradiating someone will remove stored rads. The Geiger counter's normal functionality can be restored with a screwdriver.

Organ Harvester

Disables the safety system and lets you harvest organs from living people.

Lipid Extractor

Removes the access restrictions and lowers the automatic ejection hunger threshold.

Space Suits

Increases the possible temperature range. See hardsuits.

Tablet

Unlocks Syndicate programs for download, such as Fission360 which can track nuke disk and nukes.


Notes and Known Bugs

  • Sometimes you must be on hostile intent while using the emag in order for it to work on most containers (like lockers or crates), otherwise you will just smack the container with the emag. This will quite often produce a message saying you "hit the locker with the Cryptographic Sequencer", so be very sure you're using the right intent.
