Forensic firearm examination

Post by Szunti » 18 Dec 2016, 10:53

Summary (a quick, 2-3 sentence summary):
Even if MPs find the spent casing, they don't know which gun shot it.

Benefits (How this will benefit the server and game as a whole):
RP and aids investigation.

Details (Description of how you think this would work, the benefits, etc):
You put spent case or gun into forensic machine, you get an unique ID. If it matches, the bulllet was shot from the gun. The gun has the fingerprints of the perpetrator. Someone goes to jail.

In real life, the casings have an ID. Associate that ID with the magazine or their container and then you'll have my NEUTRALITY. For now this would just be stupidly... Dumb. It's illogical that if the user has NEVER touched an item he gets his fingerprints on it for firing it.

Personally, if anyone ever fires a gun... They need a reason, there's rules against lethal discharge onboard.
Either way, I'm giving you my -1, MPs can just get the gun and check who used it and do a thougher investigation instead of having it easy.
CM was obviously inspired by Starcraft: Ghost opening. At least when marines takes too long to deploy.

Gun has the fringerprint, not the bullets. But as far as I know there is currently no way to determine which gun shot the bullet.

EDIT: I didn't know know how it works in real life, ID to know the magazine as you said is better. What about the shotgun? And it would be nice if we could also tell which gun shot the bullet found in a marine during surgery.

I'll sticky this for discussion, but might not be possible with how our systems work.

On most stations they have a system like this when examining a bullet casing

It becomes hard to determine where a shell comes from when most look pretty much the same, that being the shell sprites from pistols and smgs that look exactly the same.

+1, would help a lot finding who the fuck is guilty, since when guns are involved, its hard to determine who shot first, when, what gun and etc.
