Full Version: Weapons jack question
You're currently viewing a stripped down version of our content. View the full version with proper formatting.
So I'm not totally clear on how weapon jacks are supposed to work. Is it a connection to a cybernetic part that essentially increases accuracy? 

Would I have to be using my cybernetic arm/hand to get the effects, or could I say, plug my gun into my right arm (The cybernetic one), but shoot with my left and still use the active abilities?

Thanks!
Short Answer: You should be able to use either hand, since not all cyborgs even have a robotic arm/hand.

Long Answer: the costuming req is simply that you have to have an obvious port on an existing cybernetic part. In game, I believe the way it works is by forming something like a wireless connection between your gun and your port, and from there your body/nervous system. So it doesn't really matter where your port is or how it connects to your cybernetic part, only that is does. For example, my weapon jack is on my power core, which is on my chest. I doesn't matter how I shoot my gun - I could do it with my feet - I still get the effects of the weapon jack. I also have the personal rule that if my power core is powered off (light are out) I can't use the weapon jack or its abilities. But that's RP.

I don't think that it matters which hand you shoot with, but from a costuming/immersion standpoint, if you made the gun plug into your arm (which would be really, really cool) then I would not use it with the other hand unless you have an explanation for why that works. But rules-wise, that would be fine.

Sorry, longer answer than you need, I'm sure.

Basically exactly what I was looking for. Thanks! 

I would still be interested to hear someone from plot explain  how it works IG though, since you don't sound totally sure yourself.
