In order to get full points as RO- the paper shipped must be stamped and put in the original crate right?

Does the crate need to be closed?

Do I need to include the request form, stamped as well?

Can there be errors when stuff is shipped. Once I had an explosive crate missing a grenade and someone destroyed the crate before I could get a refund. Unless my CT stole a grenade.

Finally- do crates from squad vendors ie smartgun crates and long rifle crates give points?

  • The manifest that comes with the crate must be stamped. It can be returned in ANY crate. The order form isn't necessary, I don't think.

    The crate MUST be closed and only ONE manifest per crate is accepted.

    I don't think there are errors in shipping. Probably just someone stealing (people steal the dumbest stuff for the dumbest reasons).

    As for vendor crates, I'm not sure. Probably not, as they're technically a type of box rather than a crate.

It's not intentional but at the moment you can: Screwdrive, Wrench and then pull a barricade onto another barricade and undo the steps you just did to secure it in place.

Where is the full body paint, where does it spawn in. I've been looking all over the ship for it, but can only find the brown, green, and black face paint. I want to look like Rambo damnit.

The sniper spec gets it. Ask them if you can use it.

You will never be as bad as the baldie who picked up a tactical shotgun while a hunter was pouncing on top of a CMO for 4 seconds, with his only response being to pace around before being decap'd by said hunter. You are not Brett Kimple, and you never will be. You are not the reason why I regular MP.

Has anyone actually tried neutralising overdoses with the use of either an explosion or smoke? If I recall correctly, it actually works on some servers, as both methods will dispel all chemicals in the smoke / explosion (though the explosion will do a bit of damage).

Can medics bring welders and cables down, or should that be left to the engineers?

Doing so is bug abuse, do not do this.

Gonna leave it up to someone else to remove the part of the wiki article on Guide to Medicine where I added that in.

Don't listen to that guy >:|

You can indeed bring along wires and welders (don't forget the welding mask!) for the op to fix some robo limbs. Also, if you can, steal the Industrial Welding Tool in Medbay since it has double the fuel capacity (of 40) against the normal 20.

Yeah, I figured as much, was just curious as to if it still worked mechanically, or if it had been removed (because it probably should be)

are you allowed as a marine to move a barricade that's been built?

I'd assume that if moving vendors is engineering work then so is moving barricades

Just stick to sandbags instead

What is classified as a "space drug"? Any medicine not available via vendor?
