LESS THAN LETHAL WEAPONS

ARC GUNS

These weapons fire bolts of electromagnetic energy at a target causing painful sensory overload and violent muscle spasms. The most common form of arc gun looks like snub nosed pistols with a smooth metal hemisphere at the end. Other versions include a four pronged or three-way triangular ending.

Only EMP shielded armour can protect you from this damage, all other armour is half AP against it. Any damage caused is for stun purposes only. Head hits cause half of the damage to become real while shots at point blank cause real killing damage!

Any cyberware hit by this beam must make an EMP shielding roll, or suffer additional effects. Targets hit by the beam must make a stun roll less twice the number of damage boxes they took. If they fails, they are stunned for one round per failure point. A critical failure (a ten!) means they are stunned for one minute per failure box.

Point blank shots are always killing damage!


TASERS

Tasers fire bolts of high voltage electricity which stuns their target. Unless your armour has EMP protection your armour is only half AP against the damage. They are very useful for pacifying an opponent by nonlethal means and are often carried by police. When skin contact is achieved, the victim must make a endurance roll of difficulty 25. If they fail they are stunned for D6 minutes plus 1 per failure point. Tasers use power packs.

STUN RIFLES

These newly developed weapons use rapid ultra-sound pulses that can be targetted to cause intense pain and shock in an individual. While civils rights groups and the UN ponder over stun rifles, many security services use them during riots and as less-than-lethal assault weapons. Stun rifles are often seen in cities as they don't trash the architecture and stray shots don't kill innocent bystandards (well, mostly).

Any damage caused by a stun rifle is "stun only" (natch) but at close ranges (5m or less), half of the damage becomes real. Soft armour has no effect against the sonic waves and even hard armours (like carapace or cyberplating) is halved. Rioters should be aware of potiential glass damage from broken windows.

* Stun damge at ranges above 5m and above.
Below this range, half damage is real, the rest is stun.
Point blank head and torso shots mean real damage!
