The ultimate guide to becoming what most people call "GOOOODSECCC
It is important to keep in this is my opinion of what how i like to play security
Starting out as a security officer
Gear up: Attach a sec lite to your disabler, and get a 2nd 1 for your helmet, ditch the armor vest, get a security jacket instead, as it offers protection to your arms at the cost of -5 melee resistance
Berets are worse than helmets, as they do NOT provide more damage resistance, they provide less, and a sec lite cant be attached to them.
The warden’s purpose
DONT FUCKING PATROL AS A WARDEN OR I WILL SNAP YOUR NECK, YOUR PURPOSE IS STAY IN THE BRIG, SET THE TIMERS, AND GUARD THE ARMORY, AND GEAR UP ALONG WITH THE OFFICERS TO FIGHT ANY THREATS LIKE BLOBS OR NUKE OPS, EVEN THEN, BEST TO STAY IN THE BRIG UNLESS THE ARMORY IS EMPTY BECAUSE YOU AND YOUR OFFICERS GEARED UP TO FIGHT THE THREATS
Going on patrol:
Most of the time, you are assigned to a department, you can hear the respective communications channel, If you are assigned, Watch over the department, Deter rapscallions who break in, And overall assist the department
Dont forget sec outposts have a single cell, which can act as a normal brig cell, useful for making someone serve a sentence without going all the way to the brig, It can also act as a holding cell for certain people of heretical belief *Revs and cultists)
If however you are NOT Assigned to a department:
This is a great day to start roleplaying! Even the typical donut addict security officer that takes bribes in the form of donuts can go a long way in getting the crew liking you.
Remember ALWAYS FUCKING ASK BEFORE SEARCHING, OR I WILL FUCKING CAVE YOUR SKULL IN WITH A TOOLBOX!!
Remember, even if they dont comply, you can always batong or disabler them.
If a crime is something like shoving or stealing a stethoscope, medkit, or tools, or punching, give them a short
Even if blue or red alert, random searches aren’t needed such as blobs, nuke ops, morphs or nightmares, these are obvious threats that a crew member can easily spot, so don’t do searches when these are the main reason for a raised alert level
Deception antagonists like traitors and changelings are allowed for Random searches.
Head of security’s purpose:
You are there to prevent security from turning into shitcurity, in general, you CAN patrol, but your underlings can do that for you, best you stay in the brig, and leave from time to time.
Remember, your taser electrodes are there to start an arrest, followed up by some disabler shots.
Investigate crime, only use your revolver for self defense, self defense classifies as:
Someone attacking you
Someone breaking into a secure area
Someone attacking someone
Someone comitting a capital crime
This role requires more brains than brawn, as you need to understand, WHO IS LYING? WHO IS DA SUSSY IMPOSTA THAT WANTS TO KILL US!!
At some point playing security, you will encounter antagonists: Remember, these are the main driving force for a round, so some extent of goodwill should be extended to them: Here is how to handle each one
A: An antagonist is doing a gimmick like saw, you can either play along and compete in traps to save your victims, or come along with a gimmick of your own.
B: An antagonist is just completing their objectives, give’em the normal antag treatment, but at least make the punishment somewhat interesting: (A traitor forced to do community service for stealing)
:c OH SHIIIT, THIS ANTAGONIST IS ON A RAMPAGE, MURDERING FUCKING EVERYBODY!!, FUCK ALL, IMMDEATLY LETHAL AND SPACE’EM fuck murderboning,
This is my shitty guide on how to play sec
PERMABRIGGING AND EXECUTION
Perma and execution are dick moves against traitors who hadn’t comitted a crime of sorts, just carrying contraband, You must think: Did the crimes affect anybody? If so, how badly? Do they just keep coming back? Are they a dangerous threat? Have they shown ability to reform?
Of course you could just perma/Execute any valid you find, but that’s being an asshole, Turning the round into a greenshift, and i will fucking murder you if i play HOS, if an admin bwoinks me “I am making a judgment call, by killing him, I have preserved the fun of the round”
