Weapons

Stun gloves

Stungloves.png

Insulated gloves armed with a powerful shock to briefly stun whomever they touch. Your must be set to Harm intent in order for this to work. Craftable stun gloves only hold one charge at a time.

You will need:

To make:

  1. Add some wiring to the gloves.
  2. Use the power cell on the gloves to charge them.

Stunhat

StunhatBlue.png StunhatGreen.png StunhatRed.png

Get it? When someone tries to attack you in the head while you're wearing this hat, the hat releases some sparks, and the attacker gets Disorient, Stunned, and Weakened for a few seconds. This holds only one charge at a time.

You will need:

To make:

  1. Add some wiring to the hat.
  2. Click on the gloves with the cell in-hand to charge them. This takes 2500 charge from the cell.

Flamethrower

Flamethrower.png

Welding fuel is a solid choice. You can also fill the tank with other reagents, so there is plenty of room for experimentation. See Chemistry for more information.

You will need:

To make:

  1. Use the screwdriver on the welder.
  2. Attach the rod to the welder.
  3. Combine the igniter with the welder/rod assembly.
  4. Secure the assembly with the screwdriver.
  5. Attach the air mix or oxygen tank to the assembly.
  6. Add the fuel tank to the assembly.

Antique laser gun

AntiqueLaserGun.png

See Guns for more information.

You will need:

To make:

  1. Open the maintenance panel with the screwdriver.
  2. Add wiring.
  3. Install the small coil.
  4. Solder the coil into place.
  5. Install the lens.
  6. Use the multitool.
  7. Install the power cell.
  8. Close the maintenance panel with the screwdriver.

Zip gun

ZipGun.png

You can use different types of ammunition, of which .38 Special is easiest to obtain from a hacked general manufacturer. The zip gun holds two rounds at a time.

You will need:

To make:

  1. Turn the metal sheets into a pipe frame.
  2. Use the welder on the frame.
  3. Combine the staple gun with the frame.

Flash/cell assembly

FlashCellAssembly.png

In addition to draining somewhat more stamina than a regular flash, this overcharged version also sets them on fire. The more charge in the battery, the more stamina drained, and the longer they'll be on fire. Unlike a regular flash, it will only work once, as the bulb will instantly burn itself out. Meanwhile, a huge portion of the battery charge will be drained, allowing some reuse.

You will need:

To make:

  1. Open the flash's battery compartment with the screwdriver.
  2. Attach the power cell to the flash.

You will need:

  • A screwdriver
  • A wrench

To break:

  1. Use the screwdriver to unscrew the access panel.
  2. Use the wrench to disassemble the assembly.

Poisoned surgery tools

Scalpel.png CircSaw.png SurgicalSpoon.png

Certain surgery tools can be dipped in up to 5 units of poison or some other reagent for fun and wacky effects upon stabbing. Tools must be recoated with each use. Armor significantly reduces amount of applied by 75% of the proportion of damage blocked, e.g. if the tool does 5 damage, and the armor blocks 3 damage, then only 2.25 (5 units * .60 of damage blocked * .75) units will be applied.

You will need:

To make:

  1. Dip the scalpel, saw or spoon in the beaker.

Poisoned arrows

Likewise, arrows from the nano-fab can coated with up to 3 units of poison or other reagents, applying their effects upon hit.

You will need:

To make:

  1. Dip the arrow into the container.

Broken bottle

A passable melee weapon that makes a decent, better-than-average throwing weapon.

You will need:

  • A bottle, obviously.
  • A table to break the bottle upon.

To make:

  1. Make sure you're on Harm intent.
  2. Use the bottle on the table.

It might take a few attempts/bottles. By default, there's a 25% chance you'll successfully break the bottle; if you're drunk and/or if you're the Barman, you're more likely to succeed. If you fail, reality will ensue, and the bottle will smash into a slightly less useful glass shard. If you're especially unlucky, the broken glass may cut your hand and make you bleed.

Bombs

Detonator assemblies

IgniterAssemblies2.png

Timers and other basic tools may be put together as assemblies, most of which can function as detonators for certain bombs. Not included is the health analyzer/igniter combination, a suicide bomb vest-specific trigger.

Igniter assembly

The bread-and-butter choice for most situations.

You will need:

To make:

  1. Use the screwdriver on the igniter.
  2. If you intend to employ a signaller, use the screwdriver on it as well.

Beaker assembly

BeakerAssemblies.png

These assemblies are quite popular to release chemical smoke from a safe distance - for the user at least. Deadly in the hands of a skilled chemist. When triggered, the igniter will heat the mixture by 30 K (see ignition temperatures).

You will need:

To make:

  1. If the assembly has been secured beforehand, undo that with the screwdriver.
  2. Prepare a chemical mix of your choice.
  3. Combine the igniter assembly with the beaker.
  4. Secure the beaker assembly with the screwdriver.

You will need:

To break:

  1. Use the wrench on the beaker assembly to detach all the components.

Chemical grenade

Chemgrenade.png

The starter kit generally can't be acquired without a traitor scientist's PDA. See Murder for more information.

Note: You can't retrieve the beakers after securing the grenade, so make sure your chemical mix works beforehand!

You will need:

To make:

  1. Add the fuse to the grenade casing.
  2. Prepare a chemical mix of your choice.
  3. Add the beaker(s) to the unsecured grenade.
  4. Secure it with the screwdriver.

To make:

  1. Combine the igniter assembly with the chem grenade.

You will need:

To break:

  1. Click on the grenade assembly with the wrench in-hand to detach the grenade from the igniter assembly.
    • Optionally, click on the igniter assembly with the wrench in-hand to disassemble it.

Butt bomb

Harmless prank. Works like a grenade.

You will need:

To make:

  1. Add the timer to the butt.

Suicide bomb vest

SuicideBombVest.png

The payload will be triggered upon death of whoever is wearing the vest, heating the mixture inside the beaker by 30 K (see ignition temperatures) when so equipped.

You will need:

To make:

  1. Use a screwdriver on the igniter.
  2. Combine the igniter with the health analyzer.
  3. Secure the assembly with the screwdriver.
  4. Combine the assembly with the vest.
  5. If you intend to use the beaker, prepare a chemical mix of your choice.

  2. Use the wrench on the vest again to separate the igniter/health analyzer assembly and armor vest.
  3. Use the screwdriver on the igniter/health analyzer assembly to loosen the igniter.
  4. Use the wrench on the igniter/health analyzer assembly to separate the components.

Rigged light tube/power cell

A rather uncommon and creative way to booby-trap machinery or whole rooms. It is not a bad idea to turn the power off before installing either of them.

You will need:

To make:

  1. Inject the light tube or power cell with plasma.

Pipe bomb

Pipebomb.png

Not to be confused with the version traitors can order.

Other materials can be used in place of welding fuel if available. Ordered by explosive power: phlogiston dust, phlogiston, CLF3, or black powder. Plasmastone and erebite work differently in that they are crafted from custom metal sheets, then combined with one of the listed reagents. A small variety of items can also be shoved into one or both of the pipe bomb's two pipes to add a special effect to the detonation. If you shove two or three of the same item inside a pipe bomb, the item's effect will be boosted.

You will need:

To make:

  1. Turn the metal sheets into a pipe frame.
  2. Use the welder on the frame.
    • Optionally, stuff the extra item(s) in the hollow frame (note: you cannot do this once the frame is filled!).
  3. Fill the frame with welding fuel.
  4. Add some wires.
  5. Use a screwdriver on the igniter.
  6. If you intend to employ a signaller, use the screwdriver on it as well.
  7. Combine the igniter with the timer, the proximity sensor, or the signaller.
  8. Add the igniter assembly to the pipe frame.

Some possible extra items to add:

  • Metal scrap
  • Glass shards
  • Butter
  • Cloth
  • Instruments
  • Butts
  • Glowsticks
  • Paper
  • Ectoplasm
  • Meat
  • Telecrystals
  • RCD cartridges
  • Cable coils
  • Power cells (only works in combination with aforementioned cable coils)
  • Medical patch boxes
  • Gold star boxes
  • Assorted sticker boxes

And the great thing is, if the extra item isn't coded to have a special effect, it simply won't be added to the bomb. That is, if the item you're adding does go in, you know something special will happen!

Mousetrap bomb

MousetrapPipeBomb.png MousetrapGrenade.png MousetrapSignaller.png

Compatible with pipe bombs (regular, Syndicate) and grenades. You can also set up a signaller which will send its signal when the trap is sprung. They can be used as makeshift mines or to booby-trap backpacks, lockers, crates, and other containers - in the case of the signaller, it can activate a remote bomb.

You will need:

To make:

  1. Attach the pipe bomb, grenade, or signaler to the mousetrap.
  2. Don't forget to arm the mousetrap by clicking on it before use.

You will need:

Mousetrap car

MousetrapRollerAssembly.png

A mousetrap bomb on wheels. Once set in motion, the cart will scoot off in whichever direction you're facing and detonate the grenade upon impact with a large object or unfortunate bystander.

You will need:

To make:

  1. Turn the metal sheets into a pipe frame.
  2. Combine the mousetrap bomb with the pipe frame.

You will need:

To break:

  1. Click on the car with the wrench to remove the mousetrap from the pipe frame.
  2. Click on the mousetrap with the wrench to remove to bomb. It's safe even if it's armed.

Single tank bomb

PlasmaTankAssemblyBomb.png

Also known as plasma tank assemblies. Less powerful than transfer valve bombs, but they still fit in backpacks. You'll have to discover suitable gas mixtures yourself.

You will need:

To make:

  1. Fill the plasma tank with a gas mixture of your choice.
  2. Use a screwdriver on the igniter.
  3. Combine the igniter with the timer, proximity sensor or remote signaller.
  4. Secure the assembly with the screwdriver.
  5. Attach the assembly to the plasma tank.
  6. Weld a hole in the tank.

Transfer valve bomb

TransferValveBomb.png

Big bombs for a big bang. Again, this guide won't tell you how to create the perfect explosive mix, so feel free to sign up as a scientist and mess around with the equipment in the laboratory. You should also use the mainframe and VR goggles to run simulations instead of testing your bombs on the station. You can replace one of the tanks with a butt to build a mostly harmless gimmick bomb.

You will need:

To make:

  1. Connect the first tank to the transfer valve.
  2. Connect the second tank (or the butt) to the transfer valve.
  3. Attach the timer, proximity sensor or remote signaller to the transfer valve.
    • Optionally, attach wires, allowing it to be worn on your back. Stylish!

You will need:

  • A hand. (i.e. no tools)

To break:

  1. Click on the transfer tank valve while it's in your hand to bring up its interface.
  2. Click on the Remove links to detach each component from the transfer valve.

Canister bomb

CanbombGreyCan.png

Massive bombs whose location and time to detonation are automatically announced to everyone on the server upon arming. As usual, the gas mixture is not revealed, only the assembly process.

BIG FUCKING WARNING NOTE: These bombs are no joke. The amount of hull they can take out of the station has the potential to warrant an Emergency Shuttle call, so if you're not an antagonist and seek to build a canister bomb for whatever reason, run it by the admins first with adminhelp, or detonate them somewhere away from it like the debris field, although you'll still want to inform people about it.

You will need:

To make:

  1. Use the screwdriver to unsecure the igniter.
  2. Add the multitool to the igniter.
  3. Add the plasma tank to the assembly.
  4. Secure the assembly with a screwdriver.
  5. Use the cable coil on the assembly.
  6. Add the timer to the assembly.
    • Optionally, add a remote signalling device to your assembly.
    • Optionally, add up to three attachment class items to your assembly.
  7. Use the assembly on the canister.

The detonator assembly may have up to 3 attachment class items. Each attachment adds an additional wire to the assembly, each having a unique effect. You may have more than one of any type of attachment.

  • An analyzer (Detonates the bomb if the gas is leaking from the canister.)
  • A power cell (Adds an additional detonation wire.)
  • A flash (Occasionally flashes nearby people.)
  • A sheet of paper and a pen (Adds a note to the canister bomb interface.)
  • A bike horn (Self-explanatory.)
  • A vuvuzela. (Ditto.)

Detonators may be disassembled if necessary. A screwdriver is required to unscrew and a crowbar is required to pry out the plasma tank, and everything else can be cut apart with the wirecutters. Attachments may be removed from the assembly with a screwdriver.

Machinery

Space Pod

Lightpod.png Heavypod.png Miningpod.png Coolpod.png Goldpod.png

Electric Chair

To change the default frequency/code, you must click on the electropack while you're holding it, and modify it from the pop-up interface. Electric chairs can be remotely activated, but must be toggled on before usage (right click, and select controls). Also, the room must have power for the chair to work. Said power can come from two sources: the local APC (capped at ~80 BURN) or a direct, wired connection to the power grid (scales with the engine's output, and can even vaporize somebody).

You will need:

To make:

    • Optionally, lay wires using the cable coil to create a direct connection to the power grid.
  1. Click on the metal while you're holding it.
  2. Build a chair. Optionally, place it on the same tile as the prepared wiring.

  5. Use the fabricator to fabricate a deploy box frame for the APC.
  6. Put the box frame in the area of interest.
  7. Use the soldering iron to create an APC.
    • Optionally, click on the hand labeler to set a name for the APC.
    • Optionally, use the hand labeler to name the APC.

This is for APCs that have been completely broken (they have a damaged sprite and the area is left unpowered), not APCs that have had their wires shorted.

You will need:

To fix:

  1. Use the screwdriver on the APC.
  2. Add the wire. Wait.
  3. Wrench the APC. Wait.
  4. Apply the mulitool.
  5. Finally, use the screwdriver on it again.

Microwaves

MicrowaveNew.png

Microwaves can be scanned using the Mechanics. The trick is to scan it while it's in operation, so you don't accidentally microwave your analyzer.

MicrowaveBroken.png

If the microwave is just dirty ( MicrowaveMessy.png ), use a spray bottle of space cleaner. A completely broken unit has to be fixed with some tools.

You will need:

To fix:

  1. Use the screwdriver on the microwave.
  2. Finish the job with a wrench.

You will need:

To break:

  1. Insert item of choice into microwave.
  2. Turn the microwave on.

You will need:

To break:

  1. Open the outer cover with the wrench.
  2. Use the crowbar to pry off the cover.
  3. Remove the wiring with the wirecutters.
  4. Undo the final bolts with the wrench.

Cloning Lab

CloningConsole.png Genescan-off.gif ClonePod.png Reclaimer.png

So you want to create a new cloning lab for completely legitimate purposes? You will need to use a combination of mechanic skills and tools in addition to raw materials.

We are going to be using some information from other places to do this, namely console construction as well as the device analyzer and its related processes

You will need:

To begin:

  1. Use the device analyzer on the cloning pod, the enzymatic reclaimer and the cloning scanner pod
  2. Once all three are scanned, click the ruckingenur kit in mechanics with the scanner used
  3. Use the ruckingenur kit to create a blueprint for each of the three
  4. Put each blueprint into the reverse-engineering fabricator
  5. From the reverse-engineering fabricator make a deployable box frame for each of the three scanned objects.
  6. Find a suitable location and plan your deployment of machinery, noting that each piece of peripheral machinery must be directly adjacent to the cloning console you will be creating (diagonal adjacency qualifies as well). Think carefully about how people will be moving around your new cloning lab, and which devices they may need to enter, exit, and move around.
  7. Place the individual box frames on the ground in their final positions and use the soldering iron on them.

To create the final piece, the cloning console:

  1. Click on the metal sheet in your hand and choose 'Console frame'.
  2. Wrench the frame into place.
  3. Insert the cloning circuit board.
  4. Use the screwdriver.
  5. Add wires, this will require a couple of clicks.
  6. Use the glass on the frame, this will require a couple of clicks.
  7. Connect the monitor with the screwdriver.

In the event that you constructed the console first, simply use a screwdriver on it to remove the glass, then apply new glass and use the screwdriver again to have it reboot to detect the peripheral devices.

If this is constructed in an existing area of station that is governed by a nearby APC, then the devices you have constructed will be reliant on that status of that APC. Direct wiring to the console or devices is not necessary.

Junction Boxes

JunctionBox1.png JunctionBox2.png JunctionBox3.png

Malfunctioning junction boxes are easily identifable, as they periodically emit sparks. Thanks to the kindness of imcoders, Examining the junction box hints at what you need to do next when repairing a junction box.

Walls, Doors, and Floors

Airlocks

Airlock64.png

While they can't quite be constructed, airlocks can be replicated with the equipment in the Mechanics Workshop. Replicas will usually retain access restrictions of the original airlock. See the relevant Mechanic section for more.

Airlocks that aren't in the Adventure Zone or the CentComm level can be busted down with a good source of blunt damage and some patience. Lots of patience. As in, enough patience to break down something with 1600 health.

They can also be hacked to the point of being non-functional.

Walls

While you usually make walls with steel and mauxite, they can be substituted with any kind of metal or crystal, so long as you get it into sheet form. Glass walls are especially useful, since they provide a view but can't be easily destroyed and are often stronger than windows.

Regular Walls

This only works with metal sheets.

You will need:

To make:

  1. Click on the metal while you're holding it.
  2. Choose Wall Girders.
  3. Add plating by clicking on the girder with the metal.

Entire Rooms

ABC-U.png ABC-UMarker.png

You can replicate entire rooms with ABC-Us and blueprint markers from Cog2's Cold Loop and Cog1's Warehouse. More are always available from Cargo's ABCU Unit Crates, regardless of map.

You don't need to replicate entire rooms. You can pick a section of it or multiple sections to create different rooms. The blueprint marker can create multiple blueprints before running out of energy. This way you can pick all the pieces you want in advance and put them together in a new configuration. Remember to save them with their own names so you don't get them mixed.

You will need:

To make:

  1. Select tiles using blueprint marker.
  2. Click on the blueprint marker in-hand and choose the aptly named Print Blueprint to, well, print a blueprint of the things you just scanned. (If you can no longer print the blueprint from that specific blueprint marker, save the blueprint. You will then be able to print it from other markers.)
  3. Put the blueprint in the ABC-U.
  4. Check the material cost on the ABC-U by clicking on the unit and choosing Check Materials. Load accordingly. Fortunately for you, material costs are in sheets rather than bars/blocks.
  5. Drag the ABC-U into position.
  6. Lock it down by clicking on the ABC-U unit and choosing Lock.
  7. Click on the ABC-U unit again and choose Start Beginning to start construction.

Note: ABC-Us can only make new rooms on space tiles, so having EVA equipment is a must.

Miscellaneous

Disposal pipes

Like most things in Space Station 13, the plumbing system is surprisingly deep. A skilled space plumber can set you up for a wild ride that'll send you racing through most of the station and spit you out from a mailbox. Now you can be that skilled plumber.

The building blocks

There's a few pipe dispensers scattered around the station. The most easily accessible one can be found in disposals, and Engineering has a mobile version that makes pipe laying a breeze. Pipes come in 8 variations, 5 of which the dispensers will provide:

Straight - Straight tube.
Bent - Tube bent at a 90 degree angle.
Junction - A three-way junction. The arrow indicates where items exit.
Y-junction - A three-way junction with another exit point.
Trunk - Entry and exit point for pipes. Disposal and mail chutes come pre-connected to these, but players can't connect on their own.
Mail-junction - Not available from the dispenser. A three-way junction with a filter that only allows items to pass through. People and creatures will be diverted away into the side-pipe. Visually distinguished from regular junctions by a red dot on the pipe.
Controlled pipe segments - Specialized equipment available to mechanics.

Managing your pipes

Pipes come in four states:

Free - Can be moved, rotated and flipped over by right-clicking on them.
Wrenched - Wrenched to the floor. Immobile and inoperable. You can walk over them and rotate them.
Welded - Welded to the floor. Immobile and can't be rotated. Fully operable.
Broken - Welded to the floor. Inoperable. Must be welded at all ends to remove.

You need three tools. A crowbar to remove the tiles covering the floor. This exposes existing pipes and lets you place new pipes. A wrench to fasten free pipes. A welding tool to make wrenched pipes operable or to loosen welded pipes.

Controlling the flow

Take these tips to heart and you'll be a plumbing like a champion in no time.

  • T-ray scanners show you pipes hidden under floor tiles.
  • Always wrench the pipe in place before welding it. Poorly secured pipes will break the floor tile covering it and fall out of place.
  • Items will follow the pipeline from chute to exit point as long as every piece is connected, nothing is broken and there's no blockage.
  • Items entering a junction from the wrong end (the side with the exit arrow), will randomly go out one of the two other sides.
  • Fat people are poorly suited for pipes and can easily create a blockage. Blockages can be cleared by unwelding the blocked section.
  • Pipelines ending in a regular pipe will shoot things out in a straight line. Trunks eject items in random directions.
  • Combine with programmable electronics components to make some truly wild rides.
