Non-Lethal Weapons

Flash
Flash
Found in: Lockers at Security Office and Security Posts, Chief Engineer's Office, Robotics, Bridge, Tech Storage
Used for: Subjugating criminals
Strategy: Use it on the criminal (make sure he doesn't have protective eyewear) or activate it in your hand.
Description
A versatile tool! Flashes are small devices capable of producing an extremely bright light that is capable of blinding someone for approximately five seconds if they are immediately adjacent to you. This light will overcome visual senses, causing disorientation, allowing plenty of time to beat them to death handcuff them. This is an acceptable alternative to a Stun Baton in a pinch, but is not recommended as an alternative due to it not working against anybody wearing protective eye coverings such as welding helmets or Sunglasses. On the downside, overexposure can cause blindness, and the flash's bulb is prone to burning out after repeated usage. Disoriented people also aren't very easy to stun as they stumble around a lot.

Handheld flashes are effective at stunning Cyborgs, and are one of the few ways of stunning them. Carry it in your pocket or security belt.

Some revolutionary leaders can use flashes to brainwash other members of the crew if they are not wearing protective gear.


Telescopic Baton
Telescopic Baton
Found in: Heads' backpacks
Used for: Subjugating your staff when they feel like not taking orders
Strategy: Apply it in your hand to extend it, apply to person
Description
A.K.A. Telebaton. A compact yet robust personal defense weapon. Can be concealed when folded. Every Head gets one. It doesn't stun for very long, so make it count.


Stun Baton
Stun Baton
Found in: Lockers at Security Office, spawns in security officers' backpacks
Used for: Subjugating criminals
Strategy: Use it on the criminal
Description
Your primary melee weapon. Standard Protocol is to wear it on your BELT or your actual Security Belt. Do not run around with your weapon brandished as you will be slipped and killed by the clown.

Stun batons have two modes: on and off. While on, using it will result in a stun. Harm will cause you to smash the baton into the victim, bruising and stunning them for a very short time; anything else will jab the device into their skin and let them baste in very painful but mostly safe electricity. You'll generally be using it with this intent. Excessive use is discouraged among forward-thinking and sympathetic security forces. Recharged in a recharger.



Hybrid Taser
Hybrid Taser
Found in: Lockers at Security Office and Security Posts
Used for: Subjugating criminals
Strategy: Shoot it at the target
Description
This will be your primary law enforcement weapon; It has two modes of use; Tase OR Disable. In taser mode (Yellow) it will fire an incandescent ball of energy at low velocity. The projectile is stopped by windows, grilles, walls, simple distance, and various other obstructions. When the shot hits its target, it will cause temporary paralysis and slur speech to near illegibility. The range of the taser shot is also limited. In Disabler mode (Light Blue) it will fire a blue disabler beam that deals stamina-damage, slowing down the prep and making them fall after three shots. The disabler beam is NOT stopped by windows and grilles and its range is unlimited. Melee use of this weapon is inappropriate except for the most extreme cases (see space law section Dangerous Criminals). They can be found in security lockers.


Flashbang
Flashbang
Found in: Inside lockers at Security Office and Security Posts, a full box at Armory Flashbangbox.png
Used for: Subjugating many criminals at once
Strategy: Trigger it and throw it at a criminal mob
Description
This is an advanced piece of equipment because it is so difficult to use. It's distributed by SecTech vendors and the Warden, and can also be found in security lockers. In rooms where multiple and/or armed personnel are expected, you may use a flashbang to "breach" the room. Select it, press the button, and throw it immediately. It will blind everyone nearby for a short period of time and deafen them for a longer period of time. If all goes well, they will be on the ground, having dropped their weapons, and awaiting your handcuffs.

Flashbangs will stun their targets unless they've protected both their eyes and ears. Security usually starts with HUDsunglasses and bowman headsets, allowing them to throw flashbangs safely; ghetto alternatives can be normal sunglasses/welding equipment and earmuffs. They will pierce through protections if they explode on the same tile as the victim, so be sure to throw them before they explode.

Also note that the flashbang will disable cyborgs for a few seconds. Use this to subdue a borg from a safe distance. For the best results, 'cook' the flashbang for a few seconds in your hand to give them less time to react (although this will stun you horribly if it goes off while you're holding it).


Pepperspray
Pepperspray
Found in: Inside lockers at Security Office and Security Posts
Used for: Subjugating a criminal
Strategy: Shoot it at the criminal
Description
Manufactured by UhangInc, used to down an opponent quickly. Can store 8 sprays inside it. Remember to set the Pepper Spray to use 5 units to get the most out of it, using it at 5 units will have it cover up to four tiles and take down anyone not wearing eye protection. Best used in a narrow corridor, like the HOP line, where it can knock over several people at once.

Can be filled at Pepper Spray Refiller.png Pepper Spray Refillers located in walls at Security Office and Security Posts. You can also fill it with other chemicals, like welding fuel, should you be able to find a use for that.


Handcuffs
Handcuffs
Found in: Security Office, full box at Armory Handcuffsbox.png
Used for: Apprehending the criminal
Strategy: Apply it to a criminal
Description
Throw a pair in your pocket; more can be dispensed from the SecTech vendors. It prevents criminals from holding items, opening doors, and generally locks them behind whatever room they're in. If the victim were to be dragged or grabbed in any way, they will be unable to move. Be careful not to bump into anybody else while transporting the criminal, as this may loosen the prisoner from your grip allowing him to run free. A freedom implant or resourceful changeling can remove cuffs instantly, but everyone else has to struggle with them for two or more minutes in a private area to get them off without outside help. Remember, you cannot open airlocks while cuffed. So if you are handcuffed in space without proper gear, you will most likely die. Can be combined with orange prison shoes to make foot shackles, which force a person to always walk.

Lethal Weapons

Laser Gun
Laser Gun
Found in: Armory
Used for: Eliminating threats
Strategy: Fire at the target
Description
Distributed by the Warden, this is a more lethal version of the Energy Gun that in fact lacks a non-lethal function. The laser gun, unsurprisingly, shoots lasers, which deal a great deal of burning damage. The lasers will travel through grilles and glass of all sorts. Laser guns have slightly more rounds to fire than e-guns and can be recharged. Usually distributed along with Riot Shields in extreme cases. Can be ordered by the quartermasters in a secure weapons crate, which itself can only be opened by a security officer or military head of staff.

In the event of a massive biological outbreak, security staff usually freely distribute laser weapons to the crew, as they are effective against the blob and lack stun capabilities.


Energy Gun.gif
Energy Gun
Found in: Armory, Captain's locker, Head of Personnel's locker
Used for: Subjugating criminals and/or eliminating threats
Strategy: Toggle the mode you want and fire at the target
Description
Distributed by the Warden and standard issue for the Head of Personnel, Head of Security and the Captain. This state of the art weapon combines the function of a Disabler and a laser gun in one. Clicking the weapon while it's held alternates between a disabling shot and a burning laser: blue for stun, red for kill. E-guns are stored in the armory and can be ordered in a secure crate by the quartermaster. They are to be distributed only under the most extreme circumstances or at the Head of Security's discretion.


Multiphase gun stun.gif
Multiphase Energy Gun
Found in: Head of Security's locker
Used for: Subjugating criminals and/or eliminating threats
Strategy: Toggle the mode you want and fire at the target
Description
Unique weapon held only be the Head of Security. Functions essentially as a more advance energy gun, capable of firing in either disable, stun or lethal laser modes.


Automatic Rifle
Automatic Rifle
Found in: Cargo
Used for: Eliminating threats
Strategy: Fire at the target
Description
Ballistic rifle that Security can gain access to via Cargo. The rifle holds several clear advantages and disadvantages over the standard Laser Gun. The rifle holds 20 rounds per magazine, can be reloaded in the field and can bypass some energy weapon defences such as Energy Shields and, to a degree, Energy Swords. However this weapons weaknesses are that it needs physical ammo to reload with, ammo that must be purchased and resupplied from cargo, the weapon lacks any stunning capability, cannot bypass glass and must be bought from Cargo en mass.

The choice to acquire this weapon is usually in the hands of the Head of Security or the Warden, and as such is a very uncommon weapon to see in Security's hands, however if Security has sufficient warning about a imminent attack, such as Nuclear Operatives declaring war, then the weapon tends to be a popular choice.

Found in: Armory
Used for: Stunning/Eliminating threats
Strategy: Fire at the target
Description
Security issued shotgun, can hold up to six shells at a time and comes preloaded with rubber shot rounds for non-lethal take downs. Useful against opponents with energy weapon protection or against large crowds of enemies. Can be sawned off with any form of saw to allow the Shotgun to fit in a backpack.


Cycler Shotgun
Cycler Shotgun
Found in: Warden's Locker
Used for: Eliminating threats
Strategy: Fire at the target
Description
Unique shotgun that only the Warden has access to. A semi-automatic shotgun that can hold up to eight shells at a time in two firing tubes.

Used for: To protect you from melee attacks
Strategy: Wield it and form a wall with your comrades
Description
These are held in a hand space and used to block close range weapons, but offer no protection against ballistic weapons or lasers. Makes you un-pushable.

They make a fairly efficient weapon in terms of bludgeoning criminals, but it's suggested to pair this up with a stun baton or ranged weapon. Slamming your baton against this shield will create a threatening banging sound. When I play the maracas I go chick-chicky-boom, chick-chicky boom


Tracking Implant
Tracking Implant
Found in: Armory in a Tracking Implant Kit Implantbox.png
Used for: Making it possible to teleport straight up to the implanted person
Strategy: Take the implanter, load it with an implant and use the implanter on a person

Strategy: Take the implanter, load it with an implant and use the implanter on a person
Description
When used on someone, it will act block any attempt to influence or corrupt the targets mind/brain - unless the situation is a religious one! This implant will only make it impossible to learn any new, cultistic ways. People who are already cultists cannot be de-culted via implant and persons who are strong enough to lead a revolution party will completely resist this implant.


Electropack
Electropack
Found in: Prison Wing
Used for: Torture
Strategy: Set a signal, screwdriver it on, throw it on a criminal and send the signal
Description
This is a tool used to keep a particularly dangerous criminal under control. When turned on via Screwdriver, the pack is able to be set to a certain frequency. The pack is then placed in the backpack slot of the criminal scum; he/she will be unable to remove it without someone else's help. After activation, a simple press of a Remote Signaling Device set to the same frequency as the pack will activate it, giving your prisoner an electric shock and instantly incapacitating them.

Best of all- This does no physical harm. If you did want to do physical harm, you can combine the electropack with a helmet and then place it on a Chair that has powered wires under it. This will create an electric chair to allow you to cleanly execute multiple prisoners in a row. The AI will not approve, but when does the AI ever approve of what you do?


Space Law

The recharge time of your energy based devices will vary depending on their maximum capacity.


Portable Flash
Portable Flash
Found in: Armory
Used for: Securing an area
Strategy: Pull it to a powered area and wrench it in place
Description
A portable flasher is an effective device that when secured to the ground will automatically emit a bright light when its motion sensors are activated. It will stun anyone close to the bulb for about as long as a pocket-sized device would.

To prepare a portable flasher, first bring it to the desired area, then use a Wrench to secure the bolts to the ground. Once you have done that, the portable flasher will draw power from the local APC. If you are not wearing a form of eye protection (such as Sunglasses or a Welding Helmet) you will become momentarily stunned if you are close to the portable flasher when it goes off.

The Robotic side of the security force.

Securitron/Officer Beepsky
Securitron/
Officer Beepsky
Found in: One patrolling around the halls, others manufactured in Robotics
Used for: Detaining criminals
Description
The station only starts with one securitron, the famous Officer Beepsky, who is the closest the Head of Security gets to a pet and also a world class criminal catcher, being able to scuttle faster than a man can run, and stun and cuff and criminals using handcuffs made in the experimental mass fabricator Nanotrasen places in every Securitron model. Beepsky is so vigilant, he'll even trip anyone who gets in his way when he's chasing a perp! This also makes him a right pain when hacked as he will stun and cuff everyone in sight! The Roboticists have the option to make more, but they are rarely made as they use up the Warden's precious helmets.

You can change the Securitron's settings by swiping your security-access ID on it and looking at it:

  • Status: On/Off The Securitron is either turned on or off.
  • Behaviour controls are locked/unlocked People can access the controls or not.
  • Maintenance panel panel is closed/open People can access the maintenance panel or not.
  • Check for Weapon Authorization: No/Yes Arrests/detains anyone who has a weapon visible and is not a head job or security force.
  • Check Security Records: Yes/No Checks the security records if anyone's set to wanted and arrests/detains them.
  • Operating Mode: Arrest/Detain Arrest: Stuns and cuffs anyone who is set to wanted in the security records. Detain: Stuns the prep continuously.
  • Auto Patrol: On/Off Patrols the station.
