Murder can be messy!

Golly! it looks like you're trying to find out more about SS13's oldest past time! It's fair to say that as a Bad Guy, you're going to have to kill a few people. You might even have an objective to kill someone! There are many ways to commit the foul act, and the choice is yours.

Murderous Methods

There's more than one way to kill a man, especially in SS13. Below are some of the basic ways, feel free to mix, match, and create your own ways to butcher your fellow man.

Fists

A good old-fashioned beating is a half-decent way to take down an unarmored opponent. Set your intent to harm and whack away. Actually killing someone in this manner takes a long time, but repeatedly punching your opponent to drain their stamina and knock them down can allow you to use another method of finishing them off, such as strangulation or spacing. Generally speaking, your fists are only good weapons against opponents who are not wearing body armor and some sort of protective helmet. If they have both of these things, they're much more resistant to your punches, take less damage from them and aren't knocked down as easily from stamina loss. While you can take your chances and pray for a random critical hit or two, it's best to look for a weapon before taking on someone with gear. If you are going to take this approach, being under the influence of alcohol can help you resist punches yourself and deal more damage.

Blunt Objects

Ah, classic toolboxing it is! Incapacitating someone with a blunt object can be easy enough, killing them with one can be a bit more tricky, however.

You will generally want to knock your target unconscious first, unless you enjoy Jimmy McVictim running round the station bleating about what a bad person you are as you chase after him and try to beat him senseless. If your target is incapacitated, it's a good idea to drag him off somewhere secluded while you finish the job. Beating someone to death takes a fairly long time, even more so if they're wearing protective clothing. As for the weapon itself, it's important to select the right one for the task ahead. The rule of thumb is that blunt objects with some good weight behind them (fire extinguisher, rods, large oxygen tank) are centered around brute damage and stamina drain, anything with an open flame or heated tip (welding tool, soldering iron) inflicts burn damage, and any item with a sharp edge (shard, kitchen knife, scalpel) causes bleeding with all the proprieties of said mechanic, that is a time-delayed effect rather than ending the fight in somebody's favour on the spot.

Some traitor weapons, such as the cyalume saber, red chainsaw or butcher's knife, are able to kill people very quickly.

Strangulation

If you manage to get a stranglehold on someone, you can tighten your grab (the icon will appropriately enough spell KILL) to start squeezing the life out of them. Being strangled keeps them unconscious as long as you maintain your grip, so they've got absolutely no way of fighting back. You're guaranteed to kill them as long as you don't stop strangling. Unfortunately, strangulation is one of the slowest ways to directly kill someone, and as soon as you drop them, they will usually start healing the oxygen deprivation damage unless they're already in critical condition. Another interesting application is to suplex your victim, which requires an aggressive (or better) grab. Once acquired, use the *flip emote to deal a good amount of brute damage in addition to the strangulation!

As with other methods, the main difficulty lies in getting the necessary stranglehold on someone in the first place. Since you need to upgrade your grab four times and moving away from you will let them break free, you'll need to stun them or knock them unconscious before you get to work. Any helmets or headgear they're wearing will need to be removed beforehand as well. As such, strangulation is more a finishing move on someone who's already stunned than an actual way to win a fight.

Spacing

It's very difficult to space an enemy who is up and fighting, but trivial to space someone who's stunned. Drag them to the nearest airlock, open it, grab them, and throw them out. The combination of oxygen deprivation and burn damage (you did take their internals off, right?) will kill a person very quickly indeed. Even if they have a radio, they won't be able to yell for help since there is no air!

If your target is wearing a spacesuit, take it off them, then space them. Spacing is a surefire way to kill someone and only on very rare occasions will their body ever be found. In fact, even if you've already killed your enemy, it's a good idea to space their corpse to ensure they never come back, since even if their body is found most of the time the person will just loot it and move on. Dragging it all the way back to the station for revival is a chore, after all.

Gibbing

Much like spacing, gibbing a person is very difficult unless you've incapacitated them first. There are plenty of ways to gib your victims on the station, however many are job specific. The aptly-named gibber behind the kitchen is the chef's preferred body removal device. The chaplain has access to a crematorium. There's a biomass reclaimer in medbay that will eagerly pulp corpses (but not living people unless emagged). Engineering and the mining outpost have furnaces that will consume anything put in them. Finally, everyone has access to the rather descriptive crusher located in waste disposal. All these devices will require your target to be immobilized beforehand, and the inherent danger of fighting so close to them can have...unfortunate results.

Unless their data was already in the cloning database, a gibbed target for all intents and purposes cannot be revived short of a full respawn.

Guns

Keep your intent on anything other than help to fire your gun point-blank. However, only dedicated stun weaponry (such as the taser or amplified vuvuzela) will knock the target down instantly when used this way. Do not fire the rocket launcher and other explosive ammo point-blank, dumbass.

Kinetic firearms can be unloaded with an empty hand and reloaded at will, you don't have to empty your gun into a wall to use a different type of ammunition. You can examine examine the gun to see how many bullets are left and which ammo type it is currently loaded with. With few exceptions (40mm grenades, RPG rockets), spare ammo boxes/magazines are tiny items and may be carried in jumpsuit pockets. Don't try to beat anyone with your gun if you run out of ammo, the damage is laughable.

Kinetic firearms leave gunshot residue on the shooter and, depending on the type of gun, eject spent casings after every shot or during reload. In addition, projectiles and casings can be linked to a certain gun with ballistic fingerprinting, a fact you should take notice of. If stealth is top priority, consider energy weapons as a 'clean' alternative.

Note that most guns can occupy your belt slot. This includes most of the larger guns that are too big to fit in a backpack.

Sidearms (kinetic)

Item Image Caliber Capacity Default ammo/
Ammo type
Pocketable? Description
.22 Pistol
22Pistol.png
.22 LR 10 FMJ Low stopping power, but there aren't any conspicuous text messages when you fire it. Just remember that shooting somebody leaves physical evidence embedded in their body (namely bullets), which may not be desirable in certain circumstances.
22Magazine.png
.22 LR 10 FMJ Easily stopped by body armour. Also available from hacked general manufacturers.
.38 Revolver
Detectivegun.png
.38 Spc 7 Stun Technically the detective's sidearm. Still, the .38 can be "borrowed" and fired by everybody. Spare ammunition can be obtained from his office, the vending machines in security or (again) an unlocked general manufacturer.
38SpcSpeedloader.png
.38 Spc 7 FMJ Not overly powerful, but any unprotected target will bleed heavily and take additional damage over time until the bullet is removed.
38SpcStunSpeedloader.png
.38 Spc 7 Stun Turns the .38 into a seven-shot taser. Stun rounds do not cause bleeding.
357APSpeedloader.png
.38 Spc 7 AP AP ammo, as provided by the Syndicate, is very effective against unprotected and armoured targets alike. The damage is comparable to .357 Magnum AP.
.357 Revolver
Revolver.png
.357 Mag 7 FMJ A well-priced gun for defensive and offensive purposes. Two to three shots are generally enough to incapacitate somebody, or at least slow them to a crawl. The choice of ammo is important, remember to load AP rounds when you're about to engage the captain, security guards and other high-risk targets! The revolver can also chamber .38 Spc rounds, opening up the station's supply of stun bullets, and it could save you in a pinch if the entire supply of .357 Mag ammo has been exhausted.
38SpcSpeedloader.png
.357 Mag 7 FMJ Good against most people, light cyborgs and annoying robots. Significantly less effective against ballistic vests, but not entirely useless.
357APSpeedloader.png
.357 Mag 7 AP Armour-piercing ammunition for the .357 revolver. It does a bit less damage than normal rounds, but it rips and tears through armor like it's nothing.
Derringer
Derringer.png
.41 RF 2 AP The derringer does a lot of damage point blank, causes the victim to bleed and stuns them just long enough for you to strip/strangle them. It can be concealed in any piece of clothing and drawn straight to your active hand by using the *wink emote. Good last-resort weapon to use when you are about to be arrested.
AmmoBoxDerringer.png
.41 RF 2 AP Conveniently, the derringer comes loaded with AP rounds by default. Spare boxes of ammunition are however not available for purchase.
Flare pistol
FlareGun.png
12 ga 1 Flare Each flare doesn't cause a lot of direct damage, but it sets people alight - with interesting tactical implications! The pistol can also be reloaded with shotgun shells.
12gBuckshot.png
12 ga 8 Flare A box of flares. And it does work the other way around, so you can jam them in a 12 ga shotgun too!
Zip gun
ZipGun.png
Multi 2 N/A Zip guns, which can be crafted by everybody, have one significant advantage: the ability to fire almost any type of ammunition. From tiny .22 LR rounds up to and including RPG rockets, and all of them in the same pistol! However that works. That makes them a natural choice for the seasoned scavenger, but no improvised firearm is without a catch. They tend to blow up and disarm (get it?) the user in the process.
Syringe gun
Syringegun.png
Other 6 N/A As the name implies, this weapon fires syringes at people, the contents of which are drawn from an internal reservoir. Ideally, said reservoir should contain less-than-beneficial medicine or other poisons.

Capacity
(default)
Default setting Lethal? Description
Taser
Taser.png
100 Depends Stun Security's standard-issue sidearm, which is decent for stunning people before murdering them. The duration of the stun decreases significantly with range, so try to close in on your target first. The taser has two firing modes: stun (6 shots) and burst-fire (2 bursts). The latter can be useful if you manage to corner somebody given that the taser generally requires two hits in a row to stun completely.
Wave gun
LockedPhaser.png
200 Depends Stun Good alternative to the taser, if your ID can open experimental weapons crates. The wave gun has three firing modes: stun (8 shots), burst-fire (2 bursts) and paralysis (4 shots, drains more stamina).
Amplified vuvuzela
AmpVuvuzela.png
200 8 Stun The devious version of the taser, sort of. The vuvuzela has a larger battery and doesn't suffer from range penalties. It's also incredibly loud - what did you expect?
Telegun
TeleportGun.png
200 4 Other Teleguns are slightly complicated to use, but an amusing way to get rid of people. Once you've set up the teleporter and linked the gun to it, it will magically move them to the selected destination. "There" should be somewhere unpleasant, of course.
Energy gun
Egun.png
200 Depends Stun One of the best lethal weapons on the station. They can be toggled between stun and lethal, for a total of 13 taser bolts or 8 lasers. It's almost trivial to kill someone by stunning them and then following it up with a few lasers while they can't fight back easily. The captain and HoS start with one each.
Phaser
Phaser.png
200 8 Kill The phaser is fairly common, because they can be ordered at QM. To unlock the crate, you'll need an ID with security clearance or an EMAG. A entire battery charge is usually enough to deal with most threats in a boring, but practical way.
Laser gun
Lasergun.png
200 8 Kill An energy gun without the stun setting. Damage-wise, it is clearly preferable to the phaser.
Laser rifle
LaserRifle.png
Fusion 8 Kill The laser rifle is effectively a laser gun that recharges on its own. It doesn't deal as much damage, though.
Crossbow
Radbow.png
Atomic (slow) 1 Kill A pocketable stealth weapon. There's no indication when it is fired, but it does have a very obvious sprite. Anyone hit by the bolt will take heavy toxin and radiation damage over time, collapsing occasionally until they die. It fires a single shot, which recharges over time. Underestimated.

The crossbow cannot be upgraded with high-capacity (100+ PU) power cells, nor can it be recharged manually.
Disruptor
Disruptor.png
Disruptor charge Depends Stun Has three firing modes: stun (5 shots), burst stun (1 burst) and disruptor (3 shots). It is for all intents and purposes a less-lethal weapon, given the properties of the stun projectiles. They drain stamina and therefore stun the target, but also cause a not insignificant amount of burn damage. The disruptor beam on the other hand is comparable to a laser or energy gun set to lethal. Disruptors used to be elite security equipment, but are typically reserved for admin shenanigans these days.
Antique laser gun
AntiqueLaserGun.png
Depends Depends Kill Starts off as a deactivated display model in the captain's quarters that can be repaired by a skilled handyman. Replacement parts of average quality will make a reskinned laser gun, while above-average and top-notch parts can increase the weapon's energy output or add a burst-fire mode respectively.
BFG 9000
BFG9000.png
300 3 Kill 400 brute damage per shot...can you spell overkill? Where you'd get one of these outside of the holiday season is anybody's guess.
Artifact gun
ArtifactGun.gif
Artifact Depends Depends Depends Artifact guns are completely randomized in every respect: type of projectile, damage type, capacity, burst-fire capability etc. Experiment to find out more about a particular relic!

Power cells

Used by energy guns and stun batons. Their power cells can be swapped by clicking an existing device with a new cell.

PC - 300
EgunPowerCell.png
300 PU N/A Rarely seen in the wild because some effort is generally required to get one of these.
Custom PC
EgunPowerCellCustom.png
Depends N/A Made at the Nano-Fabricator. Maximum capacity depends on the type of raw material (e.g. cerenkite combined with a good conductor) used, however self-charging cells currently can't be crafted.
PC - Atomic
EgunPowerCellSelfCharging.png
40 PU 5 PU Basic self-charging power cell. Low capacity severely limits its usefulness, as the primary firing mode of most guns drains 25 PU per shot.

100 PU 5 PU The disruptor's standard power source. Generally speaking, these are only available from surplus crates.
PC - Fusion
EgunPowerCellSelfCharging.png
400 PU 40 PU An advanced cell with a very high charge rate.
Artifact PC
EgunPowerCellArtifact.gif
Depends Depends Artifact cells are randomized, though they're always self-charging. Some are of little value (50 PU capacity and the like), though 1000 PU super-cells with a 60 PU charge rate are also a possibility. Consider yourself very fortunate if you managed to find one!

Longarms

Ammo type
Description
AK-744
AK-744.png
.308 Win 30 FMJ By default, the AK features the largest magazine of all small arms in the game. Even better: it can be fired in three-round bursts! Devastating, if you somehow manage to acquire one.
AKMagazine.png
.308 Win 30 FMJ Because you have to reload eventually.
Tranquilizer rifle
Hunting rifle.png
.308 Win 4 (max 30) Haloperidol More useful for sedation than anything else, and even then there's a considerable delay before your target finally falls asleep. A poor choice for outright murder.
TranquilizerMag.png
.308 Win 4 Haloperidol Good for stopping drug-fueled rampages, but that's probably not what you have in mind. Two doses will slow people down and generally inconvenience them (collapsing occasionally, blurred vision), so it can be useful in a pinch.
TranquilizerMag.png
.308 Win 4 Mutadone Though entirely ineffective against ordinary crewmen, mutadone darts can be your saving grace if you find yourself having to dispatch Superman knockoffs in genetics. One magazine can be found in the Medical Director's locker and another one in the armory.
TranquilizerMag.png
.308 Win 4 Sodium thiopental Basically tiny sleepy pens fired out of rifle. Part of the MD's safari kit, which contains a boomerang and fancy outfit as well.
Hunting rifle
Hunting rifle.png
.308 Win 4 (max 30) AP The hunting rifle is, at least point-blank, more than powerful enough to instantly put anybody into critical condition and wreck light cyborgs. Because spare ammo is so scarce, generally your only option is to fall back on haloperidol darts once the magazine runs dry.
308Magazine.png
.308 Win 4 AP Good luck finding one of these.
Riot shotgun
RiotShotgun.png
12 ga 8 Rubber slug Shells fired from riot shotguns, which are available from the armory and the barman, will both stun, slightly damage and heavily knock back anyone they hit. They serve the same purpose as tasers (less-lethal takedowns), but come with ammo boxes for in-the-field reloads.
Spacker-12
Spacker.png
12 ga 8 Buckshot Exactly the same with the exception of the default load, i.e. deadly buckshot. Where a revolver could be confused with an annoying brobot or a drunk detective testing out his .38, the Spacker-12's distinct noise will draw a lot of attention. A shotgun is not a stealth weapon.
12gRubberSlugsNew.png
12 ga 8 Rubber slug These slugs, though approved for police work, actually aren't harmless. They are less-than-lethal in application, comparable to their real life equivalent.
12gBuckshot.png
12 ga 8 Buckshot Make no mistake, buckshot will rip unarmoured foes apart.
Frag12New.png
12 ga 8 Frag-12 (HE) These things hurt a lot. They explode on impact, knocking the target (and anyone next to him) down and usually relieving them of a few limbs as well. They also do explosive damage to the environment. Pretty vicious, but not seen very often as getting your hands on them requires significant effort.
Grenade launcher
GrenadeLauncher.png
40mm 1 Smoke The GL can be a surprisingly valuable addition to your arsenal, if you know how to use it properly. For example, you could open up on your (possibly armed) opponents with a smoke shell, causing them to cough a lot and drop their weapons, and then switch to your primary weapon and shoot into the cloud. They won't even know where you are!
40mmGrenadesNew.png
40mm 5 Smoke Standard issue. Two boxes spawn in the security office, and they are also available from hacked general manufacturers.
40mmHEGrenadesNew.png
40mm 2 HE Fragmentation grenades, as used by real life military forces. Dents the hull quite well. Interestingly enough, they're also used by the fearsome artillery weapon system.
MPRT-7
MPRT-7.png
Other 1 HE The RPG is the be-all, end-all of firearms. Nuclear operatives start with a couple on their shuttle. They're essentially Syndicate pipebombs fired out of a bazooka. Too large to fit in a backpack, but as a firearm it can stick to your belt... somehow.
MPRTRocket.png
Other 1 HE It's a rocket for the RPG, obviously. Unlike the RPG itself, these do fit in backpacks.
Flamethrower
Flamethrower.png
Other Depends N/A Technically not a gun, but it can be used for the same purpose. Welding fuel isn't too shabby and a nice option for setting people on fire from a distance (sort of like the flare pistol). For advanced mixtures, consult a knowledgeable chemist. Like the RPG, it's a bulky item and thus can't go in your backpack, but unlike the RPG is isn't classified as a firearm; you must carry it by hand.

Grenades

Different grenades will have different effects, but they all work mostly the same. To use a grenade, you can either click on a visible turf to automatically prime and throw the grenade in that direction, or activate the timer manually, throw or drop the grenade and then run like hell.

The timer of non-chem grenades can be adjusted with a screwdriver.

Item Type Timer
(sec)
Description
Chem (kit) Chemical 3 See the next paragraph.
Metal foam Chemical 3 Spreads a huge mass of metal foam, which solidifies into brittle floors and walls. You'll ideally want to use these at the center of a hull breach, or in the middle of a hallway to create temporary obstacles. The walls and floors break easily from being struck, though.
Fire fighting Chemical 3 Sprays fire-fighting foam upon detonation. No other effects.
Cleaner Chemical 3 Releases harmless space cleaner and water foam, cleaning the floor and making it all slippery at the same time. For malicious purposes, cleaner grenades work best in combination with galoshes.
Fake cleaner Chemical 3 Covers a large area in fluorosulfuric acid and space lube foam, and can cause a significant amount of property damage and injuries when used correctly.
Flashbang Chemical 3 Stuns everyone within a small radius. Standard issue for security, Syndicate operatives and an option for traitors.
Cryo Chemical 3 These grenades contain cryostylane, which traps people in large ice cubes and temporarily forms a layer of very slippery ice on the floor. A solid area denial weapon. They are available from experimental weapons crates.
Shock Chemical 3 Excellent for crowd control. Briefly incapacitates nearby people with electricity, dealing some burn damage in the process. Can be found in the security resupply crate.
Crowd dispersal Chemical 3 Similar purpose, inferior execution. You can get these from the armory or security resupply crates.
Incendiary Chemical 3 Creates a CLF3 fireball, burning through floor tiles and igniting items that wouldn't otherwise burn. Quite destructive! Available in grenade boxes and experimental weapons crates.
High-range incendiary Chemical 3 Contains phlogiston dust instead, resulting in a larger fireball. This type of incendiary grenade doesn't ignite non-flammable materials or burn through the floor. Another thing you can find in the experimental weapons crate.
Sarin gas Chemical 3 Coats everybody in the vicinity with sarin, a very deadly and effective poison.
Banana Other 3 (6) A small cluster of banana peels can be most dangerous...occasionally.
Moustache Other 3 (6) More of a gimmick item, but they do prevent the use of internals.
Smoke Other 2 (6) Releases a large amount of smoke upon detonation, which cannot be seen through.
Mustard gas Other 2 (6) Unleashes harmful mustard gas, burning and suffocating anybody in its effective radius.
Sonic Other 3 (6) Another good choice for crowd control, just remember to wear the earplugs!
EMP Other 5 (3) Has various effects on machinery and robots, but is harmless to humans.
Gravaton Other 10 (6) Creates a gravity distortion field, shifting the location of everything in its radius - and everything includes otherwise immovable objects like doors, computers, firelocks, windows, etc. More of a troublemaker than legitimately destructive.
Stinger grenade Other 3-10 Explodes into a burst of rubber balls that can take out limbs, inflict lots of brute damage, and lodge shrapnel into everyone's chest. Very similar to the Syndicate's frag grenades.
Frag Other 3 Can take out limbs, inflict lots of brute damage, smoke out an area, and lodge shrapnel into everyone's chest. Very similar to the Security's stinger grenades.

Bombs

When it comes to bombing, the bigger the better. Except when it isn't! Sometimes, the situation calls for smaller, precise strikes. Maybe you don't want to wreck rooms and equipment you're going to need later, or perhaps mass bombings just aren't your style. Whatever the case, there are tons of different explosives to chose from to cater for every need. And remember that this list isn't complete, in other words even more ways to blow people to smithereens exist!

Item Image Type Damage
(average)
Trigger Description Notes
Detomatrix
Detomatrix.png
Other Minor Signal PDA explosions are small with a decent chance of limb removal. Used to soften up a target, if they haven't thrown away their PDA or turned messaging off. Discarded PDAs are easy to find - consider using them for precision strikes.
Trick cigarettes
Cigpacket.png
Other Minor Timer Whether it's critical equipment or corpses, a 1x1 boom gets rid of a lot of things. And a packet contains eight of them! Excellent value for money. Cigarettes don't need to be in your hand for you to light them, almost anything that puts off heat or sparks will do the trick.
Rigged equipment
PowerCell.png LightTube.png
Chemical Minor Electricity Easy to make if you have access to tool storage and a chem dispenser, yet it requires a bit of planning and creativity to employ them to good effect. Quite situational overall. Think of other pieces of machinery which are powered by those batteries. It's not just APCs.
Breaching charge
MiningCharge32.png
Other Minor Timer Designed for reliably blasting through walls, airlocks, windows and grills, but can be used against personnel if you remember that they're fairly inflexible (attaches to turfs, not directly to the target) and have a 5 second timer.
Thermite breaching charge
MiningCharge32.png
Other Minor Timer Same concept, different execution and with a slightly larger radius. Can double as an incendiary grenade. The name is somewhat misleading, given that the charge doesn't contain any thermite (as in the chemical reagent).
Hacked mining charge
MiningCharge32.png GeologicalScanner.png
Other Minor Timer Basically mass-produced breaching charges. They damage the hull over a small area, take out equipment, cause limb loss and stun people for a decent amount of time. Terrorize the station without ever setting foot on it! Making a lot of these is trivial for a miner, use that to your advantage.
Microbomb
Implanter2.png
Other Medium Life signs Microbombs cause a fair amount of direct damage, reliably blow off limbs and are very affordable. Ideal to take revenge on your killer. They stack, so you can inject yourself with several of them to increase their effectiveness. A macrobomb implant is the functional equivalent of 10 microbombs. Try not to use the Suicide command, or they might not detonate.
Chameleon bomb
ChameleonBomb.png
Other Medium Interaction Can be disguised as any hand-held item, critter or robot. Once armed, it will explode in the face of the next person trying to pick it up. Good for (deadly) pranks and comical assassinations, if you can pull it off. About as powerful as the Syndicate pipe bomb.
Single tank bomb
PlasmaTankAssemblyBomb.png
Gas Medium Timer, prox, remote These assemblies can be makeshift incendiary devices, localized 1x1 explosives or medium-sized bombs. Versatile, but not as powerful as the bigger brother. They usually don't kill outright, but can have a significant range capable of tearing off limbs and wall plating if there's nothing to impede it.
Transfer valve bomb
TransferValveBomb.png
Gas Major Timer, prox, remote While less powerful mixtures exist, these bombs are usually of the 12x12 variety. Needless to say, a couple of them detonated close to key areas are sufficient to cripple the station. Transfer valves are too large to fit in a backpack, so you'll be forced to carry them around in your hands or a crate/closet.
Canister bomb
CanbombGreyCan.png
Gas Extreme Timer An elaborate sight that is mostly for show, these explosives pack multiple times the maximum radius of a transfer valve bomb, but maximizing their power requires lot of practice and setting them off requires time, during which it might be defused. More detonator attachments means more wires to cut, which is good because canister bombs are very obvious and have a countdown of at least 1:30 min.
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.
Chem grenade
Chemgrenade.png
Chemical Depends Timer Similar to beaker assemblies, which are freely available, but with the advantage of using two beakers instead of one. These grenades instantly mix the contents of both beakers upon detonation, allowing for obscenely deadly reactions without you having to be in the middle of them. Coming up with suitable mixtures requires a skilled chemist (or the help of one), but they can easily rival most bombs in terms of destructive power. A starter kit is well-hidden somewhere in space, but otherwise your only source of these will be a traitor scientist.
Chem grenade bomb
ChemicalGrenadeAssembly.png
Chemical Depends Timer, prox, remote While the perks and limitations of chem grenades still apply, alternative detonators do add a welcome degree of flexibility. Essentially a direct upgrade over the beaker bomb.
Pipe bomb
Pipebomb.png
Chemical Depends Timer There are several different flavours, most of which are craftable. Welding fuel pipe bombs are great to rip off limbs, but unlikely to actually kill anyone on their own. For a bigger boom, fill them with black powder or another volatile compound (see Construction for the full list). In a hurry? Ready-to-use 4x4 pipe bombs are available from your employer!
Mousetrap bomb
MousetrapPipeBomb.png MousetrapGrenade.png
Chemical Depends Pressure Ideal for leaving booby traps or land mines for unsuspecting victims! All types of grenades and pipe bombs can be attached. Hide them in places where they aren't readily seen, yet are still likely to be walked over, like under a metal sheet.
Mousetrap car
MousetrapRollerAssembly.png
Chemical Depends Impact A fun and creative method to deliver deadly presents. Mousetraps rigged with grenades as well as pipe bomb are compatible.
Land mine
Landmine.gif
Other Depends Pressure An anti-personnel land mine for people to step on. These come in different versions: stun (2x2 radius), radiation (irradiates victim and induces bad mutations), incendiary (3x3 range) and blast (minor explosion). As with mousetrap bombs, you can put armed mines in backpacks and other containers to booby-trap them.
Beaker bomb
BeakerAssembly.png
Chemical Depends Timer, prox, remote Free and practically standard equipment for the research department. This is a good option if you want to spread your hellsmoke without spending a penny, or in case the grenade kit isn't something you have access to. Not as much capacity potential as the grenades since only one beaker is used, but still a great way to deploy hellsmoke (and hellfoam too if you're creative enough).
Suicide bomb vest
SuicideBombVest.png
Chemical Depends Life signs The poor man's microbomb. The payload may either be a grenade, pipe bomb or beaker. If you want to use the latter, you won't get very far without a basic knowledge of chemistry. Try not to use the Suicide command, or they might not detonate.

Addendum

Get creative. There are many ways to kill someone not listed here. Use the environment to your advantage. Surprise people in dark, tight spaces. Teleport someone into the toxins mixing chamber. Poison food. Sabotage equipment.
