Post [Mod Contest Entry: Unconventional Weapon] Floater


Image

Originally designed as a riot dispersion tool, the Floater saw little use after a series of inquests into floater accidents publicized two vital facts:
    1. Without its built in protections, it could easily float a target all the way into the stratosphere, and far beyond, making it the most potentially lethal anti-riot device.
    2. Removing the protections was alarmingly simple and happened accidentally far too often.
As a result of these inquests, the Floater was removed from riot police arsenal in all but the most brutal regimes, and banned in 122 countries as an inhumane weapon.

Ultimately, despite Policier Inc.'s efforts to revise and rebrand the Floater as 100% safe and 100% effective, the Floater's sales were remained poor due to legal hurdles, and the production of it halted completely, with Policier Inc. focusing on more conventional technologies. The floaters that still remain are often used by the more sadistic individuals in PMC and mercenary groups, though they also see frequent use as covert body disposal tools for the more shady side of the business world.


Though the Floater is designed for human-sized targets, it is even effective against far larger targets. It must be used with care though, as its lift strength is inversely proportional to the target's mass, so it will take time to build up enough to effectively neutralise the target:

Though very effective, floaters should be used from a safe distance, as even the lightest target will still have time to retaliate before being neutralised:

Haha good one! This mod is hilarious. Started a skirmish, made a long, tall tunnel and had a guy with this on an end, there were so many floating guys it was like a shooting range.

Why didn't I think of this lol.

Oh, that sounds great. I just tested it out on tutorial mission a bunch, where targets don't last for too long.

And hey, if you hadn't posted your idea I wouldn't have come up with this one, so it's a bit of a 2 person effort haha.
