The Syringe Gun is a ranged medical weapon.

Function[edit | edit source]

The Syringe Gun is uniquely capable of remotely administering chemicals to crew members.

While this could be used beneficially, for instance if a player was infected with a Velonaceps Calyx instance and a Medical Doctor needed to quickly inject them with Calyxanide, it can also be used for non-lethally sedating or by using poisons, killing rogue crew members.

Usage[edit | edit source]

The Syringe Gun can be loaded with up to 4 injectable Chemicals.

It is aimed by holding down the right mouse button (mouse2) and fired with the left (mouse1).

If a character is hit, all the Chemical's uses will be used up. And if the Chemical hits a wall or something other than a character, it will be destroyed.

Most Chemicals have lower efficiency when used without the proper Medical Skill. When a Chemical is used with the Syringe Gun, the unskilled values will apply, even if the user meets the skill requirement. As of v0.10.5.1, there are a few exceptions (likely unintended) listed on the Chemicals page.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • In the Legacy version, medicals needed to be inside Syringes to be shootable. With the removal of Syringes, various chemicals were instead represented by Syringes.
  • The Syringe Gun can shoot any items which include the 'syringe' tag.
  • Shooting the Syringe Gun without meeting the Skill requirements will add additional spread to the shots.
