Guest Posted May 5, 2015 Share Posted May 5, 2015 For the past week or two, engineers have started arming themselves to the teeth with stungloves, bats and all sorts of things they can get their hands on the moment the round starts, then they tend to leave their lairs in small coordinated groups of valid kill hunters. There's a fine line between not being able to escalate force properly and silently rushing toward whatever the round antagonist is, ignoring broken limbs, bullets, lack of combat experience and a supposed fear of death so you can stunglove them, cuff them and steal their things. Scientists are not allowed to print out guns, arm their whole department and hunt antags. Chemists are not allowed to make chloral and poly acid spray at the beginning of the round to hunt antags. Hell, even security isnt allowed to put on their armor before the sec level is elevated to blue. I think engineers should not be allowed to make spears, bats, crossbows, stungloves and the like at round start just like the departments I counted above. Engineers enjoy a civillian protection when it comes to Antags, which means that you're not allowed to shoot them to death on sight, this makes it problematic to do anything when an engineer you're not yet allowed to shoot turns out to have stungloves and a kitchen knife. Further more I'd like to express scorn toward certain people playing in a chief engineer position, who seem to have taken to having their characters join the valid hunts, rather than at least trying to discourage them. We already have a sec force to hunt antags with, we dont need a second one with more access than the first. Quote Link to comment
