General Items (handheld)

Item Image Description
Your main storage space, comes with 7 slots that can hold tiny- to normal-size items. You can move objects inside it around by click-dragging their sprites. To take it off your back, drag and drop it to an empty hand.
  • Backpack2.png Backpack - Most jobs spawn with one. You can find more in personal lockers or make them at Uniform Manufacturers.
  • MedicsBackpack.png Medic's backpack - Every Medical Doctor spawns wearing one of these. Extras are can be found in medical uniform lockers in Medbay, often in staff room type areas, and, if applicable, the Medical Booth.
  • CaptainBackpackGreen-32x32.png Captain's Backpack - Captain spawns wearing this. Like the others, it's not different from the regular backpack aside from sprite. Comes in green, blue, and red variants.
  • NTBackpackV2.png NT backpack - Nanotrasen Security Operatives get one of these. It's also available as a Spacebux purchase.
  • SyndicateBackpack.png Syndicate backpack - In the code, but currently unused.
Tactical Assault Rucksack
Your typical backpack, but with a whopping 10 slots. Every Nuclear Operative spawns with one.
Functionally identical to backpack, down to some number of slots, and somewhat less common. You can convert a backpack into its respective satchel counterpart by using the Check Job Rewards in the Commands tab and then picking the satchel skin reward. Note that, unfortunately, the Spacebux-bought backpacks will just give you a plain satchel.
  • PersonalSatchel.png Satchel - Plain ol' grey satchels are found in personal lockers and can be fabricated at Uniform Manufacturers.
  • MedicsSatchel.png Medic's satchel - Found in medical uniform lockers in Medbay, often in staff room type areas, and, if your map has one, the Medical Booth.
  • CaptainSatchelGreen-32x32.png Captain's Satchel - Currently only possible by using the Check Job Rewards command on the Captain's Backpack as a described above in this entry. Comes in green, red, and blue version, depending on the color of the backpack used.
  • NTSatchelV2.png NT satchel - Presently only available by using the Check Job Rewards command on an NT backpack as described above.
  • SyndicateSatchel.png Syndicate Satchel - Appears on a couple of Syndicate NPC mobs.
Fanny Pack
FannyPack.png FunnyPack.png
A backpack you can wear around the waist, complete with the usual 7 slots. Unlike the majority of regular belts, fanny packs can be used to store guns and other normal-sized objects. Can be found hidden around the station such as in Cog1's Information Office and in the foyer of Manta’s Communications Office. The Clown starts with a "funny pack" variant, and the Nuclear Operatives can order a "Syndicate Tactical Espionage Belt Pack" from their Syndicate Weapons Vendor.
Mini Funny Pack
Like your regular Fanny/Funny Pack, but it only has 3 slots. These can be ordered in the Comedy Equipment crate from Cargo.
Your secondary storage space, which can hold up to seven tiny or small items. One of these spawns in every backpack and fanny pack. To add an item into it, click on the box with the item; the reverse (click on item with box) also works. To take it out, click on the box to access its inventory and click on the item of choice, or click-drag it onto a tile to dump everything out.
Nice and classy hand-held storage case. Filled with paper sheets and a pen by default. Doubles as an excellent bludgeon.
Secure Briefcase
A briefcase with a lock that works just like a safe. The main difference is that you click on it while it's in your hand to access the keypad lock and potentially enter the code, and once it's unlocked, you click-drag it to yourself to access its contents. Can also be cracked open with same techniques as safes, though there are no chat message outputs.
Illuminates dark areas. Found in emergency toolboxes and the warehouse, among other places. Small enough to fit in a pocket or on your belt. Multiple light sources on your person will stack, lighting a larger area with greater luminosity.
Emergency Glowstick
Also illuminates dark areas, almost as brightly as a flashlight but with a sickly green tint. Just click on it in-hand to snap the stick and create light, but don't fuss around with it afterwards. Often found in Emergency Storage. You can get more from Cargo by ordering Emergency Glowsticks Crates; Cargo also offers Assorted Glowsticks Crates which have glowsticks in 7 different colors, red, blue, cyan, orange, yellow, pink, and purple, that produce lights in other colors, naturally. Try dancing while holding one!
Candle.png SmallCandle.png
Like the flashlight, but a little less bright and infinitely more stylish. They also heat the air around them a bit and never go out, which makes them surprisingly good for cleaning up pools of liquid. Can be found in the Chapel and sometimes the Bar, and Cargo can order more of these via Candles Crates.
Use a pen on it to write stuff, examine it to read. Click on a noticeboard to pin it there. You can also hold the paper up to a camera to discreetly send messages to the AI. Click on it in-hand to fold it into hat, paper ball, or a paper airplane, click on it again to unfold it! Paper can be found in, unsurprisingly, paper bins.
Paper Bin
Contains, what do you know, paper. There's two in each office supply closet, which are scattered throughout the map, and they sometimes appear by themselves in vaguely office-like areas. Clicking on a bin takes a paper out of it, while click-dragging its sprite onto yourself lets you pick it up.
Sticky Notes
Like paper that can stay on a wall, floor tile, or person. Put the sticky note on the surface first, then use a pen/pencil/marker/rubber stamp/whatever to write on it. Messages with ! and ? will show a ! or ? on the note. You can peel a sticky note off by clicking on it with Help intent, applying acetone, or setting the surface on fire.
Used for writing on said paper/notes, or leaving graffiti on the floor and walls. Variants include the sleepy pen traitor item and infrared pen, used to leave infrared messages that can only be read with the help of Meson Goggles.
Like pens, but text written with them on paper appears grey and in cursive. Can come in a three different colors, green, blue, and yellow, and can be found in the office supplies closets scattered throughout the map.
Also like pens, but writing with them on paper makes thicker, colored text. Comes in many different colors. Regular "marker boxes" have markers in random colors, while "basic marker boxes" have markers in aqua, red, orange, yellow, green, blue, and purple.
Crayon box.pngCrayons.gif
For writing large letters and symbols on walls and floors, like you used to do in kindergarten!
Hand Labeler
For labeling things, of course. Simply click/activate it in-hand to set the label text, and then click on someone or something to add the label. Putting nothing for the label text lets you remove labels. Whatever you put as the label text will be added to the name of the object, in parenthesis. You can usually find one of these in various office supply closets scattered through the station, the Morgue, the Operating Theater, the Chef's Catering supplies locker, or a Belt Hell station.
Rubber Stamp
For adding stamps to paper of course. Click on it to set your choice of Approved, Rejected, X, Void, and Current Time, the latter of which will add the current "shift"/round duration in minutes and seconds.
In iconic red! If you have a stapler in your off hand and a piece of paper in your active hand, and click on another piece of paper, you'll join the two pieces of paper together as a booklet, with actual pages and such. Suitable for limb reattachment.
Bureaucrats love this! This nifty little thing can hold up to 10 pieces of paper. Click on it with a piece of paper to store it and click on the folder while its in your hand to open its inventory. You can order some folders through Bureaucracy Supply Crates from Cargo, and there're a few folders in random off-station locales that often contain juicy lore bits.
Used for cutting hair, removing unsightly bandages, wrapping things for gifts, and/or shanking people to make them bleed.
Razor Blade
A glorified knife for trimming (or growing--don't ask how) facial hair. Excellent for shanking people and spilling their blood everywhere.
Also known as probability cubes to brobocops. Clicking a die with one or more other dice groups them together, letting you roll them all at once to get a combined sum. Can be seen in the Nerd Dungeon and a few other odd locales and can be found in tabletop gaming kits, dice pouches, and dice boxes. There's a more dangerous version acquirable from a possessed Zoldorf's shop, too..
Dice Pouch
A cool bag for your dice! They function similarly to boxes, but can only store dice. You can buy them from card machines, and each one contains a four-sided, eight-sided, ten-sided, twelve-sided, twenty-sided, and hundred-sided die (i.e. your typical tabletop gaming dice), all of one randomly-chosen color.
Dice Box
Contains 5 six-sided dice, all of one randomly-chosen color. Good for all your favorite dice games, such as Liar's Dice! Can be bought from card machines.
Dice Cup
From the card machines. Not a drinking cup (it can't hold chemicals), but a cup for dice games, especially Liar's Dice. It has many different functions:
  • Click on the cup while holding a die/dice to load it in.
  • Click a floor tile with the dice in your hand to roll your dice.
  • Click a table or drop the cup on a non-help intent to put it down and flip the cup, concealing your roll.
  • Click on a flipped cup on Help intent to view your hidden roll. If you do this on a cup that belongs to another player, that player will see a red message saying you're peeking at their dice.
  • Click on a flipped cup on any other intent to reveal dice.
Spray Bottle
Versatile liquid-spraying device with a capacity of 100 units. Some of the bottles (such as the janitor's) come filled with space cleaner, a strong cleaning chemical that doesn't leave floors wet. Spray bottles can be used with other liquids as well, and scientists therefore covet these items because they can delivery nasty chemicals into people's faces with them.
Sometimes used by jerks to kill the chef's only friend. You can also hide these in containers such as backpacks or emergency boxes to make traps for unsuspecting victims! For the ultimate party gag, try to combine them with certain other items...oh, the possibilities of a single mousetrap! Make sure to arm it by clicking on it in your hand before putting it down!
Station Bounced Radio
Essentially a handheld transceiver. Less versatile than a regular headset, but it can be clipped to your belt. Found in every emergency toolbox and can be manufactured by robotics fabricators. Cyborgs use these to talk over the radio.
Fire Extinguisher
Useful for firefighting, as an impromptu jetpack and the weapon of choice for seasoned greyshirts. Just remember to disable the safety first and that against any fire which is still being fueled, you won't make much progress. Once emptied, you don't necessarily have to refill it with regular foam either...

Remember, click on a tile, with the safety off, to spray out the foam or whatever's inside and apply it on the turf tile. Click on a person, on either setting (it'll automagically turn off the safety if it's on), while on Help intent, to spray them with the extinguisher. Click on them with any other intent, on any other setting, to apply the extinguisher to the face or body area of choice.
Gas Tank
These large tanks hold up to 1013 kPa of gaseous elements. By default, they contain an air mixture (white), O2 (blue w/ white stripe), N2O (white w/ red stripe) or plasma (special sprite). All can be worn on the back slot. Compatible with the connector port of air pumps, air scrubbers, tank transfer valves and gas canisters. Has roughly a fourteenth the capacity of a gas canister.
Emergency Oxygen Tank
Works like a regular gas tank with a twelfth of the capacity. While these start off nearly empty, they are small enough to fit in the belt slot or in a jumpsuit pocket. They spawn in emergency closets and occasionally in the boxes of backpacks of new arrivals.
Fuel Tank
This small tank has been designed specifically for holding flammable compounds. Consequently, they contain welding fuel by default. Essential component of flamethrowers. Often found in Pod Bays.
Cigarettes and Joints
Cigarettes come in a couple of different flavours, and you can get them in, naturally, cigarette packets from cigarette machines. You can also make your own cigs by using a sheet of paper on a cannabis leaf or any other herb, which will generate with a euphemism for a herb cigarette like "joint" or "doobie". Using a leaf of tobacco on a sheet of paper will name it "Rolled cigarette" instead. An explosive variety is available to traitors.

To smoke:

  1. If you need to, take it out of your cigarette packet.
  2. Light it. A common method is click on it with a lit lighter, but there are special messages for using a lit welder, a cakehat, a burning person – experiment!
  3. Equip it. While most people click on their mask slot to put the cig in their mouth, the cigarette'll still administer its chems if it's in your hand or one of your pockets. In other words, you can smoke five cigs at once.

While a cigarette is equipped, you'll INGEST a portion of the chemicals inside every few seconds, unless you have the Smoker trait. Cigarettes in your pockets also won't give you its reagents if you're wearing a gas mask or internals. Equipping a cig in your mask slot, then unequipping it makes you inhale and exhale smoke from your nose, which also does the same thing and reduces the duration of the cigarette.

Cigarette Packet
Comes in many different flavors, with 6 cigs in each. To take one out, pick it up, switch your active hand (click on your other hand slot or press E), and then click on the packet. You can also click it in-hand to automatically place a cig in your off-hand or the floor if your hands are full.
List of Cigarette Packets:
CigarettePacketV2.png Cigarette packet Regular ol' cigarettes with 40 units of nicotine. Bought from cigarette machines.
NicotineFreeCigarettePacketV2.png Nicotine-free cigarette packet Contains capsaicin instead of nicotine. Bought from, naturally, cigarette machines.
MentholCigarettePacketV2.png Menthol cigarette packet Contains 20 units of menthol in addition to nicotine. Bought from, guess what, cigarette machines.
PacketOfProPuffsV2.png Packet of Pro Puffs Each cig also has a random chem pulled from a list of weird/unique chems like diluted fliptonium, lexorin, and chocolate. Bought from, you guessed it, cigarette machines.
OddCigarettePacketV2.png Odd cigarette packet Each cig is laced with a random reagent. This includes any reagent, including secret chems, chems you can normally only obtain from artbeakers & artinjectors, and other rare chems. Can be bought from cigarette machines with hidden items hacked in, and they sometimes show up in locked crates.
CigarettePacketV2.png "Cigarette packet" Contains explosive cigarettes. Can be ordered by traitors.
Cheap-ass "cigars" usually laced with questionable chemicals. Same amount of nicotine as cigars, and smoked the same way as cigarrettes. You can make your own by click on an herb from herb-type plants with a blunt wrap. The resulting cigarillo will contain all the chemicals from both the blunt and herb used and have a name in the format [chemical]-flavoured [herb name] [synonym for cigarillo], the latter of which includes names like "doink" and "brumbpo".
Blunt Wrap
The result of clicking on a pre-made cigarillo from a cigarillo packet with some sort of cutting instrument, such as a knife. It inherits 20 units of chemicals from the cigarillo it was cut from, with roughly the same ratio, as well as the flavour name of the blunt wrap, e.g. a coffee-flavoured cigarrillo becomes a coffee-flavoured blunt wrap. Use it to make your own cigarillos!
Cigarillo Packet
DiscountDanLastDitchDoinks.png JuicerSchweetRowdyRillos.png
Contains two cigarillos. Similar to a cigarette packet, you take a cigarillo from them, pick them up, switch your active hand (click on your other hand slot or press E), then click on the packet to take out the cigarillo. Comes in two varieties:
  • DiscountDanLastDitchDoinks.png Discount Dan's Last-Ditch Doinks - Bought for dirt-cheap from cigarette machines. Cigarillos from here essentially have cocktail ingredients, as they can include nicotine with a base alcohol, coffee, menthol, or a fruit juice.
  • JuicerSchweetRowdyRillos.png Juicer Schweet's Rowdy 'Rillos - Bought at a curious price from cigarette machines with "hidden items" hacked in. Contains up to two random reagents into addition to nicotine.
CigarV2.png GoldenCigarV2.png
The real deal. Functionally same as cigarettes, but much more stylish. Has 40 units of nicotine. Comes in two varieties that currently only spawn on Manta:
Cigar Box
CigarBox.png DeluxeGoldenCigarBox.png
Contains five cigars, which you can extract in the same way as cigarettes from cigarette packets. Comes in two varieties:
  • CigarBox.png Cigar box - Currently unobtainable.
  • DeluxeGoldenCigarBox.png Deluxe golden cigar box - Spawns in Manta's Bridge.
ZippoLighterV2.png / GoldenZippoLighterV2.png
For lighting your cigarettes, heating beakers or making a light source by attaching it to your belt or pocket slots. Most certainly ranks cooler than an igniter, and any self-respecting detective would agree. Standard steel ones are sold from cigarette vendors, while snazzy golden ones can be brought via Spacebux or earned as arcade prizes. You can refill them by clicking on a large tank or handheld tank with welding fuel.
ECigarette.png / MediVape.png
Creates a roughly 5x5 chemsmoke cloud using 10 units of the chems in the e-cig. By the default, the black ones from the cigarette machines only accept nicotine and THC, while the MediVapes from hacked NanoMeds share a whitelist with the hypospray. Vape clouds can transmit over phone lines. Don't ask or think about how.
E-Cigarette Refill Cartridge
Refills an e-cigarette with nicotine, so you can keep vaping. VapeNation
Miners and botanists have their own type. Drag and drop suitable objects onto a satchel to stuff them inside, for example ore or produce. They also interact nicely with tables (drag & drop), crates, mail chutes and other pieces of machinery. Satchels can be stored on the belt or in jumpsuit pockets.
BalloonBox.png BalloonBlack.png
Comes in many different shapes and colors. Can be filled with helium to make helium balloons, complete with string, and filled with other reagents to make water balloons. Clowns can also use them in-hand to make balloon animals. Boxes of these can be found in the Clown's personal quarters, naturally, and bought from Geoff Honkington, a merchant found in the same area.
Water Balloon
WaterBalloon.png Balloon.png
Water balloons can be filled with helium or any other reagent and burst when thrown at somebody. Endless amusement.
Wrapping Paper
The means for making presents, available through Party Supplies and, during the Spacemas season, Holiday Supplies crates from the Quartermaster and often found in the Bar or Warehouse.
Easter Egg
A mysterious rare egg you can open up to receive a RANDOM PRIZE OF SOME SORT! Woo! Usually, it's just a shitty Cosby sweater, but you can get anything from a powerful mystical object to a BFG!
A Christmas/Spacemas version of the Easter Egg, found in the Debris Field and in the wake of jolly holiday spirits. You can make your own using wrapping paper and scissors, though it'll just have whatever you wrapped up instead of a random object.
Toy Figure
These come in little capsules you can get from the aptly-named capsule vending machine. To free a figure from its capsule, click on it while it's in your active hand to open it, then click on it with an empty hand to remove it. You may even find rare or special editions or ones of characters played by generous Patreon supporters! Collect them all! Try smacking them together on different intents! Try clicking on one while it's in your active hand to make it talk!
Figurine Case
Stores up to thirty toy figures, saving previous inventory space, and can be bought from capsule machines. To put figures into it, you can click on the case while there's a figure in your hand, as if putting something into a backpack, or drag and drop a figure's sprite onto the case's to stuff all the figures around you into it. To take them out, you can click on case in-hand to drop all the figures out.
Toy Sword
A replica cyalume saber, available as a arcade machine prize and Spacebux item. It doesn't retract like the real thing, but it spooks paranoid spacemen all the same. In fact, it's so spooky that it's considered minor contraband.
Plush Toy
An adorable little friend you get from somehow winning the claw machine or, sometimes, an arcade machine. Latter gives out bears, while the former grants kittens, penguins, and many other cute things, with special rare variants of each! Use them inhand to talk through them like a puppet! Attack someone with a plushie you're on Help intent to make the plushie hug them!
Russian Revolver
A special gun specifically designed for Russian roulette fun! Click on the gun while it's in your hand to reload it, click on the gun to spin the chamber, and click on yourself or any tile to point it at your head and fire. (No, you can't fire it at others, doofus.) Found in every Barman's office and Mixology supplies closet.
Firework.png / CloakerV2.png
Boom! Click on it to prime it. It might explode in a lovely spray of colors and sparkles...or it might just blow up in your face and ruin the floor. Most spawn as trinkets, but arcade machines can dispense purely-aesthetically different versions called decloaking devices.
Sparkle! Click on it with some sort of flame source, such as a lighter (similar to cigs, there are different messages for each source), and it'll ignite, emitting pretty light and sparks. The sparks and the sparkler itself can heat up and ignite items. Comes in 5 packs in sparkler boxes.
Sparkler Box
Must be clicked on while it's in your hand to break the seal and access the five sparklers inside. The boxes otherwise works like other boxes, although they can fit only tiny-size items. Sparkler boxes are an item purchased through Spacebux.
Sticker Box
Open the box, take one out (you'll need two hands for this), and stick on a floor/wall/door/person whatever. It's that simple! Protip: If you find one you don't like, you can put it back into the box and (hopefully) get a different one! Stickers can be removed with fire. One of these can usually be found somewhere in/near Crew Quarters, and the Captain has a special sticker box in their quarters that has nothing but gold stars.
'BioToys' Sponge Capsule Packet
SpongeToyCapsulePack.png SpongeToyCapsule.png
Take a capsule out of the packet, pour some water on it (or put it in a suitably wet place) , and an adorable Critter will pop out! Available in Sponge Capsule Crates from Cargo.
Camera.png FilmCartridge.png
An instant camera with a replaceable film cartridge (typically good for 10 photos, but can be up to 30). Using it on a person or tile will spit out a picture. The camera can be used in conjunction with thermals to take pictures of cloaked people through the surveillance camera. The Telescience Labs, Captain's Quarters, and Detective's Office all have cameras. The detective has a spare film cartridge in his locker.
Produced by a camera, naturally. Examining the picture will show you the names of all people or things on that tile, as well as anything those people are holding in their hands. You can click on it with a pen or other writing instrument to either write something on the bottom on the photo or sign it, putting a huge signature on the photo. Both can be done multiple times, and neither accept fancy formatting. The color of both depends on the the ink/lead of the writing instrument used
Audio log
AudioLogger.png / AudioLoggerV2.png CompactTape.png
A retro audio device for making mixtapes and recording voices, depending on where's stored. In-hand, it records the holder's voice alone; in a room, everything said within seven tiles of it.
Lipstick.png LipstickOpen.png
A tube of lipstick for adding color to your lips or writing rude messages on the walls and floors like a crayon. The Chef (or anyone with an oven) can make these just by sticking a capsule and crayon (color of either doesn't matter) into an oven for some time. Click your character (or another person's) and to apply a tinsy bit on your lips. Make sure to stay perfectly still, or there'll be a lot more than a tinsy bit on your face. You'll have to go to the shower to wash it off.
Discount Dan's Bath Bomb
When inserted into a bathtub by clicking on it with the bomb in-hand, makes an unforgettable bathing experience. Comes in 12 flavors, some rarer than others. Each flavor has different reagents, but each bomb has nicotine, salt, and either barium or potassium, which is why it should not be exposed to water sources. Spawns in various Bathrooms and can be found in hacked MiniMeds and NanoMed Plus machines.
Baseball Bat
Found, not in the Gym, but somewhere in Maintenance. There's no complimentary baseball, unfortunately, but you play baseball with just about anything with this slugger, because it will deflect anything thrown at you off into a random direction, provided, of course, you can get the timing right.
A super-bouncy ball you use to play Space Basketball, obviously. Careful whom you throw it at though. If they're not ready to catch it (i.e. they're not in throw mode), you might just bonk in them right in the face, taking them out of the game for a while! Has a secret use.
Basketball Hoop
Mount it somewhere by clicking on a wall or similar with it in-hand, and you're ready to play some Space B-Ball! You can score points by throwing a basketball into it from a distance or getting close enough to simply slam the ball into it.
Ouija Board
Allows the dead to send messages to the living. When you're a Ghost, you can click on the board and select one of several randomly-selected words from the pop-up menu. The board will then shake and magically spell out the word you picked for the "benefit" of any living or dead person watching. Great for spooky spectral afterlife pranks.
PinpointerDisk.gif / PinpointerNuke.gif
A little device that points in the direction of an object of interest, once it has been configured by clicking on it while it's in your hand. Green arrow means target is 1-8 tiles away, blue 9-16, and red 17 and higher. Black dot means on same tile as target, usually in the context of it being in your inventory, while question mark indicates target has been destroyed/killed or is no longer on the same Z-level as the pinpointer.

The Captain has a red one in their quarters for the nuke disk, the Detective gets a modified red version for blood DNA matches, each loadout from the sec weapons vendor has one for gear provided, and the Nuclear Operatives have green ones for their nuclear bomb, with their leader getting an extra red one for the nuke disk.
Vendor Restock Cartridge
A tiny little cartridge that for restocking certain vending machines. When used on a vending machine, it refills all of the items to their original amounts, including any hacked/hidden items.
Magnifying Glass
Bought from Discount Dan's GTMs. Click on certain books and records with it and you might find some interesting lore bits.
Printing Press Modules
PrintingPressColorModule.png PrintingPressCoverModule.png PrintingPressForbiddenModule.png
A variety of modules you can insert into a printing press. They are a color module that lets you use colored text, a cover module which lets you use special covers on your books, and a forbidden module which gives you some more interesting tidbits.
Ink Cartridge
Contains a bunch of ink. You can't drink it, but you can insert it into your local printing press.
Space Cash
Formally called "credits". Do not confuse with Spacebux. Every station job starts with a stack by default, some places have fat stacks of cash as loot, and you can withdraw cash from and add cash to your account and by using an ATM.
  • Take some cash from a stack: Hold the moneystack in one hand, switch hand (Hotkey: E for Goon WASD mode controls, X for tg-style WASD controls), and click it with your other hand. You should get a menu to select the amount.
  • Mass-collect adjacent credits stacks: Click-drag the sprite of any money stack on the floor onto the sprite of a stack in your hand. This will make you collect the nearby stacks on cash on the floor into one big stack.

General Items (large)

Item Image Description
Tank WeldingFuel.png Tank Helium.png
Rather massive type of container typically often found in the maintenance corridors, tool storage and the warehouse. Depending on their designation, they either contain firefighting foam, water, welding fuel, fertilizer or helium. Water fountains come with a limited supply of paper cups, and welding fuel tanks will rupture if heated.

All tanks support drag & drop functionality for certain targets (beaker or similar receptacle, spray bottle, plant pot, mop bucket) as well as the traditional method of drawing from their contents (using a beaker-type receptacle on the tank). Drag & drop can also be employed to transfer reagents from a beaker-type container to the tank.

Finally, you can make water fountains mobile like the other tanks by using a screwdriver on them, and you can remove the plastic bottle by using a wrench.
Closets and Lockers
GenericCloset.png Locker.png
Widely used around the station. Can hold almost anything inside them, and may be secured by an ID lock or with the help of a welding tool. If you see one of them shaking like crazy, that means a person is trying to get out of a welded or locked closet. Doing flips has a chance to damage and eventually break them open from the inside, as does setting off a Liquid Dark Matter from within them. Traitors have the option to order a floor closet, which can pass through other objects even when it's closed and which disguises itself as the tile it's on.

Fun fact: If you use a welder on it while it's still open, you'll cut some leg holes into it. That way, when some nerd shoves you in and welds it shut, you'll still be able to move...kinda.
Personal Locker
A common sight in Crew Quarters and Locker Room. Swipe it with your ID (ID in a PDA doesn't work) to unlock and claim it as your own, swipe it again to close it; now only you and you alone can open it. By default, you'll find a backpack, satchel, extra headset, and, for some reason, a remote signaler, but you can stuff it with items you want to hide ,items you REALLY want to hide, and any other item you'd like.
CoffinNew.png / CoffinFancy.png
Exactly the same as a closet. These can be found in/around the Chapel and ordered from cargo as Morgue Supplies crates. They are meant to have bodies of the dearly deceased placed in them. It's mostly used for hiding murder victims. Vampires can also use them to regenerate their immortal bodies, and even resurrect from the dead.
CrateV3-32x32.png SecureCrateGreenV2-32x32.png
Another location to store things or bodies. Like closets, they can be welded shut or, if it has a lock, can be locked. On a productive day, miners might use them to use a cargo transporter to send ore to the cargo bay, or they will crack open abandoned ones with a multitool for a chance at some sweet loot. If a crate traps you, use drag & drop (your mob onto the crate) to scoot around it.
Secure Safe
Lockable storage devices. You lock and unlock it by entering a four digit code that goes from 0 to 9 and A to D. Clicking on the safe brings up the keypad, letting you enter the code or set the combination if it hasn't been set. Click-dragging the safe onto you lets you access the contents once unlocked. Some maps' Crew Quarters and Detective's Office areas have them, and there are some in the Debris Field and Trench that contain goodies. Can also be broken open with an EMAG or cracked by those in the know.
ChairNew.png OfficeChair.png
Haunted piece of furniture. People are effectively immobilized when buckled to the chair if the chair is secured to the floor. Folding chairs can be folded up and carried around, while office chairs moved after unscrewing them from the floor. Both can also be climbed and jumped from by clickdragging your sprite onto them with the grab intent, perfect for wrestlers!
Bed.png Captainbed.png
Sleepy? Buckle yourself to a bed, click the STAND button on your HUD so that it turns into REST, and wait. To wake up, click the REST button on your HUD so that it turns into STAND, and wait. Beds are movable if you use a screwdriver on them.
Stool.png BarStool.png
Small stool for decoration purposes.
Table.png LabCounter.png
These can either be regular or reinforced, and can additionally be a corner piece, face a certain direction or stand-alone. Not the most formidable obstacle. The Chemistry Lab gets a special version of these that can store loads of items. Can be used for impromptu surgery if the victim patient is unconscious - grab them, upgrade the grab, and then hit the table with them to put them on the table. Incidentally, this is also how you get people over tables.
Decorative plant that comes in a variety of forms and species. Shake it, and you might find some nice clothes or useful tools! (or smack whoever's hiding behind it). You can try to destroy them by hitting them with something; they have 50 "health", and every object, even those that do no damage, can harm them.
More zeerust. To call another phone, click on the phone to pick up the handset and choose one of the locations listed to magically dial it. The phone on the other end will ring and vibrate until someone picks up. Once that happens, you can talk over phone so long as you have the handset in your active hand. To end your call, put the handset back on the phone or just walk away to let the phone cord magically pull it back.
Fixed wall-mounted communication devices supplementing the crew's headsets that come in various colors. Some are tuned in to the general channel, others are set to a department-specific frequency. Whichever they are tuned to, they can have the microphone turned on - which automatically picks up on nearby speech and transmits it - and the speaker on - which is needed if you want to hear what's going on on the channel. If you preface a message with :in while nearby an intercom, you'll automatically talk into it, even if the microphone is off.
Cell Charger
The most convenient way to recharge power cells. It will recharge high-capacity batteries (7500+ PUs) much faster than the APC's built-in version.
This handy device is capable of replenishing the battery of almost any energy weapon, stun baton, small power cell and certain mining tools. Located in security, the cargo bay, the mining outpost and other places. For obvious reasons, access to one of these is usually critical for traitors.
Credit Transfer Device
Credit transfer device.png
So, you want to sell bombs harmless goods at the market? Forget paper money! Just swipe the target (i.e. your) ID first and ask the customer to do the same. He or she will then be prompted to enter the desired amount of credits to transfer. No PIN required! (For better or for worse...)
ATM.png / ATMManta.png
If that isn't an option, one of the automated teller machines can be used to either withdraw money directly or transfer a certain amount to your ID card (required to play the slot machine, but mostly obsolete otherwise). Your PIN can be set from the character set-up menu and is otherwise randomly generated at the start of every round; type "notes" to retrieve your PIN. These can also be used to check how much Spacebux you have and transfer it to others. Shooting it with a lethal bullet or smacking with a sufficiently powerful melee weapon enough can destroy it, making it spit out a tiny amount of cash!
Slot Machine
Take a break and relax at Roland's Bar and Space Casino! As mentioned above, you won't be able to start the fun without some preparation; you need to go to an ATM to transfer credits to your card (why are there separate account credits and card credits? I don't know.) and then use the card for the machine. Surprisingly profitable.
Arcade Machine
Found in the Arcade. Defeat treacherous monsters, win prizes such as toy swords and plush bears! Lead on, adventurer, your quest awaits!
Robustris Pro Cabinet
A cabinet in the Arcade that you can click on to play a surprisingly well-built Tetris clone. As the Examine text says:
  • Arrow Left/A & Arrow Right/D move the piece left and right
  • Arrow Down/D moves the piece down
  • Arrow Up/S rotates the piece.

Upcoming pieces are displayed on the right, with topmost being the next immediate piece. Your current score is in the top right, with the game speed current & high score above it. When you get a high score, it'll prompt you a name, which will be prominently displayed in the cabinet's Examine text; high scores also tracked a BYOND page! A slower, less colorful, and generally inferior version with an inexplicable pause button is included with every PDA.

Claw Machine
Just as frustrating as the real life ones, found in either the Arcade or the Bar. No money or keyboard input needed; just click on it and if you're lucky, you might get a cute and adorable plush toy...or just flub up.
A variety of different fabricators exist, each type serving a particular department. See Making and Breaking for more information.
Portable Reclaimer
Processes ores and other items into raw bars/blocks of material. See Making and Breaking for more information.
Vending Machine
CoffeeVendingMachine2.png PDAVendingMachine3.png Snackmachine.PNG
These automated shopkeepers dispense everything from soda to monkeys - as long as you have enough money or a discount, of course. Attacking it may cause it to tip over, resulting in huge BRUTE and a long stun. A fallen machine can be turned back upright by clicking on it with a crowbar.
Oxygen Vendor
The pinnacle of NT-capitalism. This vending machine will replace your air tanks with a set amount pure O2 -- provided you have the cash, of course. Cost of fill-up depends on both the amount of O2 you want and the size of the container.
Emergency Pod Fabricator
Creates an emergency pod in about 30 seconds. Despite what the Examine text may imply, these things do not require materials and can create pods ad infinitum. Found in Horizon's public pod bay and Testing Asteroid dock
EmptyCanisterV2.png PlasmaCan2.png
Large storage containers of gas. Smaller tanks can be attached to them, to either draw or put in their contents. They can also be fixed to appropriate connector ports with a wrench.
Meteor Shield Generator
Drag it near a window or external wall and turn it on. It'll create a small energy barrier around that area, which busts up incoming meteors. Depending on the settings, the shield may have a radius of one to six tiles. It normally runs on battery power, but if you screwdriver open the cover, take out the cell, and wrench over it a wire, it can use the station's power grid! They are usually stored in emergency storage and other places around the station.
Ship Alert Button
ShipAlertButton.png TeenyTinyHammer.png
The obligatory big red button. Click on it to take out the tiny hammer, then click on it again to break the glass. Press the button to officially declare a station emergency, which will activate all the emergency lights and send a server-wide annoucement with a goddamn annoying surprisingly loud klaxon. Found exclusively in the Bridge.
Cyborg Docking Station
Found in robotics and sometimes other places. Used by cyborgs to recharge their power and make repairs. Also allows people to change the cyborg's name, appearance, module and power cell, and lets the cyborg install upgrades and put on certain pieces of clothing.
Disposal Unit
As the name implies, they are connected to the pipe network and usually lead to waste disposal, though some of them have been repurposed for deliveries to the morgue, crematorium, and elsewhere instead. If in doubt, check the label on the device jump into every disposal unit you see without thinking twice! You even conveniently get the interface popup when you climb into one. Fun fact: chutes pull air from the room and eject it out on the other side. It'll take forever to actually empty a room with way though.
Transportation Chute
A special pneumatic chute deliberately designed for transporting people. Just click-drag your sprite onto the chute's to ride. No awkward interface, no waiting for it to re-pressurize, just a fast and easy ride to your destination.
Mail Chute
Mail chute.jpg
The local pneumatic post system extends to every department plus several public areas of the station. You cannot climb into mail chutes without wearing the special suit or being a Monkey or Ghost Drone. A few other special critters, such as the hivemind critters created by a changeling, can ride them too.
Mass Driver
AMDL.gif MassDriver.png
Launches any items, crates, and/or people placed on it at high velocities, often with the aid of an automatic mass driver loader (AMDL). The Cargo Bay uses these to receive and send crates, the Chapel often has one to send off corpses for burial in space, and Belt Hell systems integrate several of these for intra-station transport.
Washing Machine
While you can remove visible stains from clothes by washing them in the sink, you need this machine to remove those ugly piss/vomit/blood/gib/urine-stained modifiers. Just open the door, load your clothes in, and start the machine. You'll have clean clothes within a few minutes or so. Since it's a space washing machine, it also dries them for you. Convenient!
Swirlie machine. You can put in and take out objects into this thing by click-dragging its sprite onto yours. Don't try to put in more than 7 items at a time though--you might clog it! If you're on the Roleplay server or Motives are enabled, stand over this and use the *pee emote or type say "*pee into the chat command bar to relieve your bladder.
Basically a really big chemical beaker with a 400 unit capacity. The taps unfortunately don't work, but you can fill it with chemical reagents just fine provided you've a suitable container. You also click-drag your character sprite onto the tub's to climb into it, thus applying its chemicals' TOUCH effects. Once you're done, just click on the tub to get out, then click on it again with an empty hand to pull the plug and flush out its contents. Click on it again to insert the plug back in and start another bath. Most of these are unfortunately stationary, but legends tell of a mobile one somewhere in the Adventure Zone...
Sprays water onto whatever/whoever's under it, washing away any visible blood stains, removing paint, cleaning up any lipstick, boosting hygiene, and creating puddles.
Tanning Bed
TanningBed.png TanningComputer.png
A little machine that lets you change skin color. You use the computer to activate it (shame you can't use it while in the bed) as well as set much time you'll be in there and whether it'll wait a while before activating. By default, it makes you a little bit darker, but you can also pry out the tubes with the crowbar and replace them with funky colored ones to get all sorts of Technicolor skin tones. Just remember to wear the appropriate eye protection for the UV rays and dress...very lightly (good thing there's usually tanning glasses and swimsuits nearby this thing.)
Industrial Cryogenics Unit
Shove a braindead player to keep them safe till they get back into the game, or climb in yourself if you have to be away from the game for 15 minutes or more or leave the round entirely to observe. Found in Cog1's Crew Quarters, Cog2's Assistants' Quarters, and the Arrivals area of Destiny, Clarion, Horizon, Donut 3, and Atlas. On those latter five maps, people who join after roundstart also spawn from here.
Player Piano
Automatic music maker found in the Chapel. When left-clicked with an empty hand, you can select either Choose Notes to add notes for it to play or Play Song to actually play music. Examples of songs in the piano's format are on the Piano Song Dump. You also can right-click it and choose the Claim Items verb to receive the in-game guide Your Player Piano and You, which describes several other functionalities not mentioned here, and a piano key that'll let you reset the piano and adjust its looping and timing.
A machine (currently only found on Clarion and Cog1's Crew Lounge) that can make exact copies of papers and camera pictures. It runs on paper which is inserted while the lid is down either one sheet at a time or by using paper bins. If the lid is open, clicking the photocopier with a sheet of paper or a picture will scan it into memory. Clicking on a photocopier with an empty hand will open up a menu where you can either set an amount of copies to make, print copies of whatever's stored in memory, reset memory (which only holds 1 document/picture) or toggle the lid.
Filing Cabinet
A bureaucrat's best friend! This technological marvel is found in every map in rotation in either Customs or the Head of Personnel's Office. Clicking on it with an empty hand will open up a list of all of the filing cabinets' contents. Click on the dashed blue line to add something to the cabinet, and click on an item in the cabinet to remove it. A filing cabinet isn't only for holding paper though, it can hold folders too. And folders can be labelled... and it doesn't have any practical storage limitations... so let your inner paper pusher run wild!
Ah, the humble printer. Bulky, heavy and quite ugly. What would we do without you? Well actually quite a bit since most computers that need it already have a printer module built into them. But hey, at least you can always try connecting to one with using computer nerd shit TermOS or ThinkDOS and print stuff there, probably. Can be found around the station in the Bridge, Security, the Research Sector, the Net Cafe, the Information Office, and occasionally a few other places.
VR Pod
The cutting edge of space technology, the VR Pod is your portal to a virtual dimension of wonder, joy, and bloodshed. You can usually find these at any Arcade worth its salt. Be careful - stay too long in it, and you'll begin suffocating.
Printing Press
A robust machine. Load in paper and ink cartridges, configure the settings, author, title, and contents, and then print out a bunch of books!
