Are you a Roboticist? This guide will explain the creation and maintenance of Cyborgs, bots, and stocky exosuits.


Exosuit Fabricators

These are the main machines used in Robotics, with them you can create various exosuit and cyborg parts and their upgrade modules. Remember to sync these with the R&D servers frequently for new equipment designs and increased production speeds.

If one (or more) of the Exosuit Fabricators gets stuck at updating from R&D servers, use a screwdriver on it and then crowbar that fucker! Remove any metal/glass sheets and then put all the components back into the machine frame, use a screwdriver at the end to reassemble the Exosuit Fabricator.

Generic borg.png Cyborgs

Total Part Cost: 100000 Metal

Requires
1 x each Cyborg part (made with the Exosuit Fabricator)

2 x Flash (Exosuit Fabricator)
1 x Cable Coil
1 x Power Cell (preferably at least High-Capacity)
1 x BrainMMI OR positronic brain OR B.O.R.I.S. module


The Cyborg is the Roboticist's primary creation. They are tasked with helping the station's inhabitants in their daily life and trying to kill everyone when the AI is insane. Each cyborg is required to follow the AI's laws, and may choose one of the AIs in the event that more than one exists.

Assuming you already have the necessary components:

  1. Power Cell Insert a charged power cell into the cyborg's chest
  2. Cable Coil Insert a coil of wire into the cyborg's chest
  3. Flash Insert two flashes in the cyborg's head (one for each eye socket)
  4. For final assembly, take each component and apply it to the cyborg endoskeleton
  5. Multitool Multitools can be used to give cyborgs names. Simply apply the multitool before the brain is installed. Note that calling a borg 'PenisShitter 5000' will not net you any new friends, however, if your borg leaves the name up to you, be sure to name it 'PenisShitter 5000'. For some hilarity and general confusion, try giving the borg the same name as the AI.
  6. Brain Once it's complete, it's time for the brain. See here how to remove your volunteer's brain. (or just hit the head with a blade until it pops off and then cut the skull open)
  7. MMI Now put the brain into your MMI, and then the MMI into the cyborg suit. Congratulations, your cyborg is complete. Put the brainless corpse into a body bag and deliver it to the Morgue (or throw it down the disposals because ROBOTICS!). If when you insert the MMI into the cyborg it says "This MMI does not seem to fit." it means the user is job banned from cyborg.
  8. Instead of a brain, you can insert a positronic brain (controlled by a ghost) or B.O.R.I.S. module (controlled by the AI) into the cyborg as well.

Cyborg Maintenance

In the beginning of a maintenance process, you need to open the Cyborg's maintenance cover. To open it:

  1. Id regular.png Use an ID Card, Emag.png Emag it or just ask the Cyborg to unlock its panel
  2. Crowbar.png Use a Crowbar to open the cover.

After the maintenance process use the same tools in reverse order so the Cyborg doesn't run around with its cover open, like so:

  1. Crowbar.png Use a Crowbar to close the cover.
  2. Id regular.png Use your ID Card to lock the Cyborg. Borgs can't lock their panel.

Cyborg Repairs

Cyborgs will often come to you for repairs if damaged.

For brute damage:

  1. Welder.pngWeld them to fix the dents.

For burn damage:

  1. Unlock and open the Cyborg's cover.
  2. Hud-hands.gif Use an Empty Hand to remove the battery.
  3. Screwdriver tool.png Screwdriver to expose wiring.
  4. Cable Coil Rewire the damaged circuits. You may have to do this step more than once.
  5. Screwdriver tool.png Screwdriver to hide wiring.
  6. Re-insert the old battery or insert a new one.
  7. Close the cover and lock the Cyborg.

Engineering cyborgs can repair dents on themselves and on their fellow cyborgs. They cannot repair burn damage though, since they cannot remove power cells to reach the wiring.

Cyborg Batteries

You will often see at least one Cyborg come to your assembly line to ask for an upgrade.

  1. Unlock and open the Cyborg's cover.
  2. Hud-hands.gif With an Empty Hand, remove the old battery.
  3. Power cell.png Insert a New Battery.
  4. Close the cover and lock the Cyborg.

Cyborg Radios

Cyborgs can be installed with radio encryption keys, allowing them to communicate on secure department channels.

  1. Unlock and open the Cyborg's cover.
  2. Encryption key.png Insert a New Encryption Key (or Screwdriver to remove the current Key).
  3. Close the cover and lock the Cyborg.

Reviving Cyborgs

A cyborg that has failed but not been turned into scrap can be repaired back to working order.

  1. Create an Emergency Restart Module at the Exosuit Fabricator (under Cyborg Upgrade Modules).
  2. Repair the Cyborg with a welder and/or replace wires.
  3. Unlock and open the Cyborg's cover.
  4. Circuitboard.png Insert the Emergency Restart Module.
  5. Close the cover and lock the Cyborg.

Upgrading Cyborgs

  1. Unlock and open the Cyborg's cover.
  2. Circuitboard.png Insert the Upgrade Module (or emag to subvert).
  3. Close the cover and lock the Cyborg.

Resetting Cyborg models

For info on how to reset a cyborg's model, check out the Guide to Hacking.

Deconstructing Cyborgs

Cyborgs can be deconstructed to remove their MMI and get their parts back.

  1. Unlock and open the Cyborg's cover.
  2. Hud-hands.gif Use an Empty Hand to remove battery.
  3. Screwdriver tool.png Screwdriver to open wiring.
  4. Wirecutters.png Cut every wire until the lockdown light turns on.
  5. Wrench.png Wrench to disassemble.

(Alternatively, for steps 4 and 5, you can use a Robotics console)

Upgrades

Roboticists can construct upgrade modules for cyborgs, such as one that increases your movement speed. Should you wish to change models, ask the roboticist to cut and mend your reset wire.

Surgery

To initiate most surgeries, first place Drapesdrapes over the part of the body you are operating on.

Removing Brains

Procedure Ghetto Analogues
Step 1: Scalpel Scalpel: make an incision. Kitchen Knife (65%) Shard (45%) Energy Sword (75%) Any other sharp item (30%)
Step 2: Retractor Retractor: retract the skin. Screwdriver (45%) Wirecutters (35%)
Step 3: Circular Saw Circular Saw: saw through bones. Chainsaw (arm-mounted) (65%) Fire Axe (50%) Chainsaw (unmounted) (50%) Hatchet (35%) Butcher's Knife (25%) Changeling's Arm Blade (75%)
Step 4: Hemostat Hemostat: clamp the bleeders. Wirecutters (60%) Package Wrap (35%) Cable (15%)
Step 5: Scalpel Scalpel: make an incision. Kitchen Knife (65%) Shard (45%) Energy Sword (75%) Any other sharp item (30%)
Step 6: Hemostat Hemostat: remove the brain. Crowbar (55%)
Step 7: MMI.pngHave an MMI in hand.
Step 8: Click to remove the brain.

Despite what some old-timer Roboticists may tell you, DO NOT JUST TAKE THE BONESAW AND CUT THEIR HEAD OFF WITHOUT SURGERY. Removing a brain without surgery will damage it and may result in the immediate death of the brain.

In case this happens, you will need to ask the Chemist to make some Mannitol to fix it. Once you have a beaker of it, just splash it on the brain and it should be good to go. You can always examine the brain to see if it is still damaged.


If a head is not attached to a body, you can simply use a Scalpelscalpel or some other slicing/cutting item on it to cut the brain out. No need for drapes or table.

Limb Augmentation

Replace a limb with a robot part. The head, torso, arms, and legs can all be augmented. Augmenting torso makes you immune to appendicitis and xeno larva.
Robot limbs are tougher. They need welding to "heal" brute damage and wires for burn damage, and cannot be otherwise healed. EMP pulses will hurt augmented humans.

Cyborg head
Cyborg torso
Cyborg arm

We can rebuild him. We have the technology.

Target Target: Head, chest, legs or arms

Procedure Ghetto Analogues
Step 0: Create the cyborg limb(s) using an Exosuit Fabricator.
Step 1: Scalpel Scalpel: make an incision. Kitchen Knife (65%) Shard (45%) Energy Sword (75%) Any other sharp item (30%)
Step 2: Hemostat Hemostat: clamp bleeders. Wirecutters (60%) Package Wrap (35%) Cable (15%)
Step 3: Retractor Retractor: retract the skin. Screwdriver (45%) Wirecutters (35%)
Step 4: Scalpel Scalpel: sever the muscles. Wirecutters (55%)
Step 5: Circular Saw Circular Saw: cut through the bone. Chainsaw (arm-mounted) (65%) Fire Axe (50%) Chainsaw (unmounted) (50%) Hatchet (35%) Butcher's Knife (25%) Changeling's Arm Blade (75%)
Step 7: Cyborg limb: augment the limb.

Bots

As a Roboticist, you serve another important purpose: making robots. Robots can benefit the station in many ways, and are really damned easy to create. The current list of robots, and how to make them, is as follows:

Remember: All bots can be made through the crafting menu (T-like hammer hud-icon). This can save a lot of time during construction, especially if Robotics is busy!

Medibot.gif Medibot

Heals anyone nearby. Can be equipped with a beaker to stick people with instead of the default medicine, and when emagged it will inject people with toxins, repeatedly.

To manufacture:

1 x Cyborg right arm.png Borg Right Arm
1 x Med-kit (EMPTY, any color)
1 x Health Analyzer
1 x Proximity Sensor
Requires
  1. Attach the Borg Arm (left or right, doesn't matter) to an empty Med-kit. Color of the Med-kit doesn't matter, although it will affect the colour of the Medbot.
  2. You can pick the assembly up in your hand at this point and name it something clever/funny/stupid by holding your Pen in the other hand and clicking on it, if you wish.
  3. Add a Medical Analyzer.
  4. Insert the Proximity Sensor and your Medibot is ready!

Cleanbot.gif Cleanbot

Cleanbots are great, as they serve the exact same purpose as the Janitor. What makes it even better is that it uses Space Cleaner to mop, so no slipping on everything! When Emagged (or hacked) it will spew slippery foam and melt people with acid.

To make:

Requires
1 x Bucket

1 x Proximity Sensor
1 x Cyborg left arm.png Borg Arm (left or right)

  1. Grab a bucket from the Janitor or make with Autolathe and insert the Proximity Sensor to it
  2. Use a Pen to name it if you wish.
  3. Attach a Borg Arm and your Cleanbot is ready!

Floorbot.gif Floorbot

Floorbots are nice to have around when some asshole starts crowbarring up floor tiles or some traitor has blown apart a section of the station. They zoom around and repair busted floor tiles. Honestly, they're niche to the point of uselessness. But they make nice pets. Also, if emagged, they will deconstruct the floors into space.

To manufacture:

Requires
1 x Mechanical Toolbox

10 x Floor Tile
1 x Proximity Sensor
1 x Cyborg left arm.png Borg Arm (left or right)

  1. Attach a Floor tile to the Mechanical Toolbox.
  2. Add the Proximity Sensor.
  3. Insert a Borg Arm and your Floorbot is ready!

HONK HONK Honkbot

It's annoying and useless, but the clown might bug you to make one of this in absentia of a H.O.N.K. mech. God forbid if a traitor emags the thing.

To manufacture:

Requires
1 x Clown Box

1 x Clown Stamp
1 x Bike Horn
1 x Proximity Sensor
1 x Cyborg left arm.png Borg Arm (left or right)

  1. Stamp a piece of cardboard with the clown stamp. (You may need a clown for this step)
  2. Insert a Borg Arm
  3. Add a Proximity Sensor.
  4. Add a Bike Horn

I AM THE LAW Securitron

Basically, Officer Beepsky without the personality. You usually won't need to build any of these, but they can be hilariously helpful for traitors who have invested in a Cryptographic Sequencer, as they tend to run around stunning and cuffing everyone in sight. Problem is, any of these that report a Level 10 Infraction when spotting people are obviously hacked.

To manufacture:

Requires
1 x Remote Signaling Device

1 x Helmet
1 x Welding Tool
1 x Proximity Sensor
1 x Cyborg right arm.png Borg Right Arm
1 x Stun Baton

  1. Use a Remote Signaling Device on a Helmet.
  2. Weld them together
  3. Add a Proximity Sensor.
  4. Insert a Borg Arm.
  5. Toss in a Stun Baton and your Securitron is ready!

Note: Destroying a Securitron or Officer Beepsky with a melee weapon is all but impossible by yourself; striking them causes them to immediately stun and cuff you. If you work with another person you can get several hits in while it is cuffing the other person, which is often enough to destroy it outright.

FOOLISH JEDI General Beepsky

This is General Beepsky (or General Grieffous, your pick). A terrifying 4 esword wielding nightmare-bot created by a mad roboticist with the help of some leftover eswords, this thing is a traitor's worst nightmare. It takes down criminals by delivering deadly spin attacks, instantly downing a target with it's rapidly rotating eswords. It gets even worse when a Cryptographic Sequencer gets involved, as General Beepskey will begin to mercilessly track, kill, maim and subsequently disembowel any target he comes across.

Unlike normal Securitrons, General Beepsky can deflect projectiles with it's eswords. It's only true weakness is an EMP.

To manufacture:

Requires
1 x Remote Signaling Device

1 x Welding Tool
1 x Helmet
1 x Proximity Sensor
1 x Cyborg left arm.png Borg Arm (left or right)
1 x Wrench Wrench

4 x Energy Sword

  1. Use a Remote Signaling Device on a Helmet.
  2. Weld them together
  3. Add a Proximity Sensor.
  4. Insert a Borg Arm.
  5. Use a Wrench to adjust the arm slots for extra weapons.
  6. Attach 4 Energy Swords and your death machine is ready to maim.

Ed209.png ED-209

PUT DOWN YOUR WEAPON. YOU HAVE 15 SECONDS TO COMPLY.

Beepsky's bigger brother. Has all of the abilities of a standard Securitron with the addition of a ranged attack.

To manufacture:

Requires
1 x Cyborg Endoskeleton Cyborg Endoskeleton

1 x Metal Sheet
2 x Cyborg Leg Cyborg Leg
1 x Body Armor
1 x Welding Tool
1 x Helmet
1 x Proximity Sensor
1 x Cable Coil
1 x Hybrid Taser
1 x Screwdriver
1 x Power Cell

  1. Cyborg Endoskeleton Build a Cyborg Endoskeleton from the Exosuit Fabricator.
  2. Metal Sheet Use a Metal Sheet on a Cyborg Endoskeleton to reinforce it.
  3. Cyborg Leg Add two Robot Legs
  4. Body Armor Add a Body Armor
  5. Welding Tool Weld everything together
  6. Helmet Add in a security Helmet
  7. Proximity Sensor Attach a Proximity Sensor to the assembly
  8. Cable Coil Insert wires
  9. Hybrid Taser Screwdriver Add a Hybrid Taser and attach it with a Screwdriver
  10. Power Cell Insert a Power Cell. Your own exosuit is complete!

An emagged ED-209 fires deadly lasers AND attacks anyone on sight.

Generic drone.png Drone

Note that Drones are currently admin spawn only, outside of the three derelict drones.

A disposable little drone that runs around and repairs things. Controlled by players, and can't interact with any other beings at all (besides other drones). Usually good to make lots of these to let ghosts get back into the round.

  1. Drone Shell Build a drone shell from the Drone Shell Fabricator by inserting glass and metal.

That's it! Any ghost can click on the drone shell to take control of it and start repairing the station.

Exosuits

These can be tremendously helpful or tremendously annoying depending on who uses it. They take more work to make than robots and require special circuits, which are obtained through the Quartermaster or the Research and Development console.

With all Exosuits, MMIs can be installed as drivers. But remember, MMIs are not bound to the AI or its laws, so don't put any deranged maniacs inside them. Remember to grant MMI controlled mechs access keys, because they don't have a keycard on them!

List of Exosuits

The current list of exosuits is as follows.

Exosuit operation and maintenance

To climb into an exosuit, just drag and drop your character onto it.

Exosuit beacons

Adding a tracking beacon (exofab "Misc" category) to a mech allows the RD's exosuit control console to track the mech, view detailed stats, message the pilot and even EMP it when neccessary.

Research can also unlock an AI control beacon that lets the AI - you guessed it - control the exosuit.

Locking/unlocking Exosuits

There are two ways to lock exosuit: A) ID ("keycode") lock or B) DNA lock.

A) ID lock (keycode):

Adding a keycode to a mech will grant it access to that area, but will also prevent anyone without that access from entering the mech.

For example: A mech with "bridge" and "robotics" keycodes has access to both areas, but requires an ID card with at least bridge and robotics access to enter.

  • Enter the exosuit and unlock the ID upload panel.
  • Exit the exosuit.
  • Use an ID card/PDA on exosuit and select "Edit operation keycodes".

B) DNA lock:

DNA locking only allows the person matching the recorded Unique Enzymes (UE) to enter the mech.

This can be abused by Changelings and crafty Geneticists! Another downside is that you will be locked out if you swap bodies.

  • Enter the exosuit and open the stats menu.
  • Unter Permissions&Logging, click "DNA-lock".
  • To remove the lock, hit "[ Reset ]" next to your DNA string under "DNA-locked:".

Exosuit Damage and Repairs

For external damage to the exosuit, simply use a welder on it. When a mech takes damage while its integrity is below a certain threshold, it has a chance to break internally. The reports for internal damage can be seen in the stats window.


Internal Fire: An internal fire will heat the air in the cabin and in the air tank, potentially causing a breach. It has a chance to fix itself if the life support system is functional.

Life Support System Malfunction: A malfunction in the life support system will prevent the mech from regulating the temperature brought into the cabin from the internal air tank. It can be fixed by using a screwdriver on it or with a repair droid.

Gas Tank Breach: A gas tank breach will cause the contents of the internal tank to be leaked into the environment. It can be fixed by using a welder on the mech if it also has external damage or with a repair droid.

Coordination System Calibration Failure: A failure in the coordination system will cause the mech to move randomly and can cause the mech to miss its targets. It can be fixed by clicking "Recalibrate" in the damage report.

Short Circuit: A short circuit failure will cause the installed power cell to lose charge and damages it so that its maximum charge decreases. It also prevents repair droids and tesla relays from working. It can be repaired by using wires on the mech while its power unit hatch is open (see battery replacement steps).

Exosuit Battery Replacement

  1. Make sure maintenance protocols are permitted (Permissions&Logging inside the mech).
  2. Id regular.png Hit the exosuit with your ID card or PDA with ID inside and select "Initiate maintenance protocol".

Exosuit Equipment

Various tools and weapons can be attached to exosuits, providng them with ability to perform different tasks. Exosuit equipment is built by Exosuit Fabricator ("Exosuit Equipment" menu).

To attach a tool or weapon, simply click with it on the exosuit.

Generic Exosuit Equipment

Equipment Description
Exosuit drill.png Drill The drill can completely destroy most objects (with the exception of reinforced walls) and kill people who stand still within a few seconds.

When used for mining, the targeted and two adjacent mineral deposits will be drilled. Drills are rarely used for mining once Plasma Cutters become available.
Can't be attached to the Odysseus.

Mecha diamond drill.png Diamond Drill Essentially an upgraded drill that's faster and much stronger - you can go right through minerals and reinforced walls.

Can't be attached to the Odysseus.
