    Get a Spray Bottle.
    It will be your best friend for life.
    Empty whatever is in it, weed b gone, or space cleaner
    and refill that thing with water.

    You have to use a glass, or beaker or other container to refill the bottle, Even a bucket works. The Weed-b-gone holds less then the space cleaner, but that also means you can get it ready to refill with water faster.

    Once you have it filled you have the best offensive support weapons and one of the best defensive weapons in the entire game.

    It makes people slip, and is near impossible to see. You can do up to 3 Squares in a spray, and on diagonals.

    If you walk, you wont fall down yourself. I like to spray it behind me as I run away from someone. If you can get galoshes with this combo, you are a god king.

    I love using this when I play the clown, I will put a few banana peels down, in a way that you could easily walk around the, but spray the empty walk around floor tiles.

    The Water lasts about 30 Real seconds on the ground. Very worth it if you are The Clown.

    Clown Protip: Use it sparingly and blame the Janitor.

    Not sure if you can still do it, but after they moved the AI to the heart of the station I found the best way to keep that spying bastard off my back was to cut it off from the power grid. Means cutting off the bridge as well, but done right the AI won't know until it's too late. Both times that I did do it, everybody assumed that the AI had gone rogue and was trying to stop the crew from escaping.

    It also means that once it's down you can safely break into the AI chamber.

    The last game i played, I decided I wanted to cause a death. Indirectly of course. I also just happened to find a PDA on the ground. I picked it up, and sent a message to a random living player. It read:
    "[The name of the guy I wanted dead]. That is all."
    I dumped the PDA afterwards. Just a minute later I see in the chat one guy telling the other guy off for killing the guy i wanted him to kill. He responded by saying he got a tip that the dead guy was a traitor. Just a bit of random fun i guess. Simple but it worked.

    When you are a Traitor with a kill objective and you pick the Detomax Cart for you PDA, I often like to buy 2.

    Also Dont blow your Targets PDA right away.

    Find your target and wait for someone else, to stand by them, Then blow that persons PDA, and Then your Targets PDA. I like to keep the PDA Blow Window open and expanded so I can see all the names, so I can be faster on the button when the time comes.

    If you do this right, you will kill your target quickly.

    If you see a sec officer with his stun baton out doing nothing, put your intent to disarm and take his stun baton. If youre fast enough you can make him drop the baton, stun him, and run away. Or kill him if you feel like it. This also aplies to dumb captains that walk the hallways with their energy gun out. It's hilarious how many captains ive managed to kill by just disarming them and hten knocking them out with their won gun. You can also consider this a tip to not walk the hallways with a weapon in your hands unless youre going to use it.

    To add to this, if you think you will draw your weapon too slow, stop being a pussy.
    If you cant draw your weapon in time for the fight it wouldn't have made a difference if you had it out.
    It means the other man was just faster, that small advantage would have given you nothing.

    Indeed as a Sec officer I keep my weapons holstered unless I plan to shoot or beat something, Ive been randomly disarmed too many times.

    Also, If you are Security, for the love of god, make sure you have more then 1 pair of cuffs on you. I always carry at least 2 sets, 1 in my pocket and another in 1 or 2 in my pack.

    Also pick up your cuffs, dont leave them laying around, or I promise you, you will find yourself wearing a pair when the traitor picks them up.

    A clown or mime is annoying certainly, but at the end of the day they usually are the only ones with even a hint of morality on the fucking station.

    From a bit of an oldhat:

    Always close your fucking traitor-PDA. The number of retards who leave their PDA logged in and sit there claiming "I'm a victim of circumstance" till you check their PDA and see "Unspent Telecrystals"

    Its ALWAYS better to stun, cuff, brig and search perps are security then it is to say "Nah I trust him." Even if its the damn captain. Make sure he is aware of what you are doing, and have another head come with you so he feels safe. I have found this many traitor captains by going "You know what I don't give a shit if you are the captain, that was a laser sword the AI saw you with."

    Make sure if you are doing ANYTHING remotely dangerous the AI and Crew are aware. That way if shit happens people will at least MAYBE remember the last area you were in and retrieve your corpse.

    Changling: When in doubt burn it to death or gibb it after taking a blood sample or backing up the DNA. Bit meta-y but better then crushing the clown into burgers only to find he wasn't the changling and the poor fuck can't play for another half hour.

    That being said as Syndicates or Traitors fucking toss the corpse of your target deep into space, cermatorum or the gibber as soon as you can. Last thing you want is them coming back and being mad.

    Walk when you think there is water. And keep that weapon in its holster.

    Rogue borg? Use a flash on it.

    Wanna be the most evil rogue AI ever? Learn to use the fucking magnets that is Atmo, flooding the station with NO2 or Plasma is a good way to keep keep areas human free or atleast buy you time while they try to stop their only havens burning to pieces.

    If you think your AI is rogue. Cut the fucking cameras.

    If you're changeling: You can go to space naked. If have the chance get a stun baton and a jet pack. Then start stuning and dragging people to space and eating there. If people actually start coming to space to get you, start running next to them and spamming the sting button. Then just wait until there knocked out.

    adding my own advice

    you're a head? make sure you keep talking even if you are a traitor not doing so make it more likely that when you actually try to kill someone that was more active on the radio they'll believe you and not him. Also not keeping contact with the crew/your department as a head make you suspicious.

    Chemist: Keep at least a tricordazine and a synaptizine pill on you at all time, use them as soon as you think there is trouble you can always make more once you survived and it will stack the odd in your favor. Leoprazine is another addition that can be useful to your arsenal, it will allow you to use space as an escape route, or break in normaly heavily fortified area.

    Also depending on the server population your strategy will change.

    So very very much easier said than done. Most people don't even have enough access to them to even think "if only I had a flash". Seriously, I don't think most people ever see them aside from heads, sec and roboticists. And of course rev heads, but that doesn't really count.

    I find it amazing how so few people understand atmos. I love playing as an atmos tech and have a pretty good grasp of how it works, though perhaps those facts are related in more than one way. On the other hand, the two times I tried being an AI I couldn't even figure out the interface.

    Back in October or November I ran into the most retarded sec officer ever. The AI was quite rogue. The Hostile Runtimes message had been given, the timer was counting down and people were going to the sat to kill it. I asked the captain over the radio if I should cut the cameras (this was not very long after I got into SS13) and he said yes over the radio. So I start cutting cameras and get arrested for it. I tell the officer that the AI is rogue and that the captain said to cut cameras, he responded that the law is still the law and brigged me. Cutting cameras isn't even listed in the wiki page on space law, and that thing lists possetion of narcotics as a crime, which I have never, ever seen anyone at all give a shit about.

    You know what's really hard to beat? A traitor HOS who plants evidence while searching his target on trumped up charges. Happened to me once. Though if I had been more robust, well, ok, robust at all I could have beaten him when he tried to kill me on the way to the prison station, since I was a telehulk by then(I was the librarian and had volunteered for genetics testing). The HOS "found" a cloaker, an e-crossbow and something else near the library. It was about as obvious to me as could be that he was a traitor assigned to kill me but there wasn't much I could do aside from killing him, which I'm really not much good at, especially back then(a few months ago). It was ironic because I actually was a traitor assigned to steal the AI, but I had done nothing incriminating except stealing an intellicard significantly after he started going after me. I hadn't even opened my uplink.

    Dont Waste Telecrystals as a traitor, or have unused items on your person.

    As a Traitor I try to use as few items as possible, then ditch the items in question as soon as my objective is compleat, and by ditch the items, I mean leave them in public hallways for people to find and spread chaos with.

    Once I was an Engineer and my traitor objective was Steal a Rig suit..... DONE

    Now what to do.... I made as many Emags as I could and just left them laying around the station, 10 minutes later the shuttle was called because of the chaos. I also had enough time to help out one of my Triatorbros.

    I dont think you can erase text. Its Pen not a pencil.

    You click on paper with the pen to write. If you click on the pen itself, you open up Font Size, Color, Bold, etc.

    Speaking of Messages.

    More people need to use the message consoles around the station, you can replay ano info heads, the AI and many more.

    Its a great way to speak to the AI secretly.

    I get that, but on the wiki it talks about filling out forms when ordering things as/from the QM...and I don't get how you would fill in or make a form beyond an unstructured series of sentences...

    Tips? I dunno. Switch your captains' armor with the HoS. Raises your survivabilty by a lot.
    >> Anonymous 05/19/11(Thu)12:54 No.14980439

    The HoS armour is no different from the normal armour, the only thing about it is that it makes your sprite bigger (And thus easier to click in combat).

    Plus the Captain's armour doubles as a spacesuit, you're much better off sticking with it.

    If you're the CMO or a chemist, make chloral hydrate and put it in your hypospray/syringe gun.

    The recipe is 30 units chlorine, 10 water, 10 ethanol to make 10 units. It's an almost instant knockout, lasts a while, and leaves the victim otherwise unharmed, and is incredibly useful when someone is trying to robust you in melee.

    This is a little complicated but it is worth causing some havoc.

    1. Get empty lightbulbs/lighttubes and a syringe
    2. Get access to APCS
    3.Get Liquid plasma from chemist.

    Use syringe to inject plasma into light tubes.

    Cut power to the room

    Replace the room's lights with these plasma tubes

    Leave room.

    Ask AI what's wrong with the power and see if he can fix it.

    If you're into antics and have access to welding supplies, making secret doors into just about anywhere is really damn easy. Just weld the wall, crowbar the girders and put the metal back on.

    (for tg source code servers only, no goonstation)

    step 1: be HoS, HoP, or Captain

    step 2: go make robot heads from robotics

    step 3: take to kitchen, microwave with 1 flour

    step 4: blend resultant roburger

    step 5: get beaker of nanomachines (from blending)

    step 6: get empty syringe

    step 7: go to sec armory, get box of chemical implants

    step 8: inject nanomachines into chem implants

    step 9: implant into prisoner

    Congratulations! You can now borg a misbehaving prisoner at the touch of a button! It's like a robotics control console, but for humans!

    To the novice chemists:
    In order to make a grenade, you will need several things
    a. a grenade casing
    b. a timer
    c. an igniter
    d. a screwdriver
    e. One or two beakers of what you want the grenade to use
    1. Use screwdriver on Igniter
    2. Use Igniter on Timer
    3. Use Igniter/Timer on Grenade Casing
    4. Use beaker(s) on Unsecured Grenade
    5. Use screwdriver on Unsecured Grenade
    6. Cover the place in Space Lube/Space Cleaner/Polytrinic Acid/Whatever the hell you put in the grenade
