Weapons for Neutralizing Threats

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)
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. If you target a criminal specifically with the flash you will not only blind them, but knock them down for the aforementioned second period, 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 recomended as an alternative due to it not working against anybody wearing protective eye coverings such as Welding Helmet or Sunglasses. On the downside, overexposure can cause blindness, and the flash's bulb is prone to burning out after repeated usage.

Hand held flashes are remarkably effective at stunning Cyborgs, and are one of only two ways stunning them. Carry it in your pocket.

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


Stun Baton
Stun Baton
Found in: Lockers at Security Office and Security Posts
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 some 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; disarm 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 weapons port.

Note that leaving the Baton on will not drain it, so keep it on in your belt for quick usage.

Minor Tip: Do NOT select the harm intent, unless you wish to beat your target. Additionally, take a moment to make sure that your baton is turned on and fully charged. recharger.


Taser
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; however it only has five charges. Maintain both this and your stun baton at a recharger port. Like the baton, you should wear this in your suit slot and carry the other in your Security Belt or Belt slot. The taser fires an incandescent ball of energy at low velocity. The projectile is stopped by windows, grills, walls, and various other obstructions. When hit, it will cause temporary paralysis and slur speech to near illegibility. Melee use of this weapon is inappropriate except for the most extreme cases (see space law section Dangerous Criminals). When aiming for the head, tasers are exceptional melee weapons even when out of charge, very often knocking the opponent unconscious with a single blow. 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, you could also find them 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.

Also note that the Flashbang will disable a Cyborgs for a few moments, use this to subdue a Cyborg from a safe distance.

Energy Gun
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 Personal, Head of Security (The HoS get's two) and the Captain. This state of the art weapon combines the function of a taser and a laser gun in one, clicking the weapon while it's held alternates between a killing laser and a stunning taser (Remember: blue for stun, red for kill). Energy guns make exceptional melee weapons due to their uncanny ability to knock people unconscious when aimed at the head. Eguns 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.

Laser Gun
Laser Gun
Found in: Armory
Used for: Eliminating threats
Strategy: Fire at that pesky Blob.
Description
Distributed by the Warden - It is a more lethal version of the Energy Gun and lacks a non-lethal function. Usually distributed along with Riot Shields in extreme cases. It is very heavy - useful for the beating up of people. It shoots lasers, which deal a great deal of burning damage. The lasers will travel through grills and glass of all sorts. Can be ordered by the quartermasters in a secure weapons crate, which itself can only able to be opened by a security officer or military head of staff, It can be recharged.

In the event of a massive biological outbreak Security staff usually freely distribute Laser weapons to the crew, mainly due to them being cheaper and they lack a Stun feature.


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, it may loosen the prisoner from your grip allowing him to run free. A freedom implant or resourceful changeling can remove them instantly, but everyone else has to struggle with them for one 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 forces a person to always walk.

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

Loyalty Implant
Loyalty Implant
Found in: Armory in a Lockbox (Loyalty Implants) Loyalty Implants.png
Used for: Un-revolutionarizing people and/or preventing people to be converted to cultists
Strategy: Take the implanter, load it with an implant and use the implanter on a person
Description
When used on someone, it will make the person loyal to CentCom and the Heads of the Station - 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 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 electopack 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?

Security Robots

The Robotic side of the security force. The station only starts with one, 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 hover 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. 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.
