This is a table of purpose-made ranged weaponry available in the game. The list may not perfectly represent the current state of the game, as the weapons may be rebalanced but the page may not be updated to reflect this for some time.

Sidearms (Ballistic)

Ballistic weapons remain a popular weapon in the 26th century, typically however Nanotrasen prefer the usage of Energy weapons over Ballistic weapons, so don't expect to see many ballistic weapons on station.

Sidearms (Energy)

Energy weapons are among the most common kind of weapon you'll find on a Nanotrasen space station. Reliable but has issues with ammo.

Laser Based

64px Laser Gun Recharger.gif
10 Lasers 20 Burn Armory, weapons crates and summon guns. Security No real reason to use this over the energy gun as it is lethal ONLY.
64px Laser Cannon Recharger.gif
10 Lasers 40 Burn R&D Lab once researched first. Nanotrasen Must be researched first. This is the Laser Gun's bigger brother, fear him, he will fuck you over.
64px Energy Gun Recharger.gif
10 Lasers, 20 Disable 20 Burn
Armory, Energy Weapons Crate or Summon guns. Security A versatile energy weapon. Best thing is to disable a target and then either handcuff (for arresting) or spam the other remaining shots at them on kill mode (for murder).
64px Advanced Energy Gun Powercell.png
10 (recharges over time) 20 Burn/Stun target R&D Lab once researched first. Nanotrasen Using advanced wizardry SCIENCE, a mini nuclear generator has been fitted into this gun to provide unlimited shots! Researched from R&D. Cannot be used in recharging units. Unreliable models may emit radiation, take caution.
64px Antique Laser Gun Recharger.gif
12 (recharges over time) 20 Burn Captain's Quarters. Nanotrasen The prized weapon of the Captain, and the target of many enemy horses. Similar to the laser gun except it's recharged all by itself. They just don't make guns like they used to.
64px X-01 Multiphase Energy Gun Recharger.gif
5 Stun, 10 Laser, 20 Disable 20 Burn Head of Security. Nanotrasen The first attempt by Nanotrasen to remake the Captain's Antique Laser. Has more firing modes on offer but lacks the ability to recharge.
64px Ion Rifle Recharger.gif
10 Ion Pulses 20 Brute to silicon mobs
Up to 90 damage to mechs
3x3 EMP
Armory and on the Nuclear Operative shuttle. Security Large and unwieldy, great for dealing with mechs. Cyborgs are weak to it: flashing cyborgs totally immobilizes them and it leaves you free to robust them to your heart's content.
64px Retro Laser Recharger.gif
12 Lasers 20 Burn White Ship. Unknown Found on the white ship, this old beast is like the laser gun; anyone with a spaaaaaace suit and a little know-how can reach it.
64px Temperature Gun Recharger.gif
40 Freeze/heat Beams Heats/Cools target dependent upon the setting. R&D Lab once researched first. Nanotrasen Another researched gun, if you can make this (more importantly, open that damn lockbox), chances are you can construct something better (read: laser cannon). Generally useless, except perhaps for killing slimes if you really don't want to get close.
64px X-Ray Gun Recharger.gif
20 Lasers 15 Burn + 30 Irradiate R&D Lab once researched first. Nanotrasen This beams from this gun will pass through everything but a wall. While it does do less burn damage, the radiation it inflicts causes toxin damage and can make someone mutate. Great for shooting up crowded hallways. Kills blobs dead. Current range of the gun is 15 tiles and drops further with every obstacle passed by the beam.

Pulse Based

64px Pulse Rifle Recharger.gif

Misc Weapons

64px Chem Sprayer Chemicals 600 units total Confusion, blindness, dizziness, knockout, and random mutations with the standard reagents. Ordered via syndicate uplink, costs 10 telecrystals, only available to Nuclear Agents. Syndicate Think of it as a spray bottle. Except each spray is three tiles wide and can travel the entire screen. Generally kept away from players due to the potential of the lubepocalypse.
64px Flamethrower 64px
Gas of your choice
Depends on tank pressure Depends on the gas Made by yourself or with a hacked Autolathe Civilian You are a firestarter! Allows for creative gas mixes if you know your atmos. An area denial tool, generally useful for making small areas uninhabitable for people, not so useful when trying to kill someone, as it's easy to run away.
Sgun.png Syringe Gun 64px
1 Syringe 6 Brute + 15u chemicals Medbay Storage. Civilian In fact, this is very robust. Think of it as a ranged hypospray.
64px Rapid Syringe Gun 64px
6 Syringes 6 Brute + 15u chemicals R&D Lab once researched first. Nanotrasen See the syringe gun, but take into account it holds six syringes. Can be made through researching them, and only costs metal and glass to make. This gun gives you the power to fuck over six people at once!
