A Gas Grenade is an explosive weapon found in System Shock.


This grenade releases a gas whose active compound is diuranium oxide. Affecting only biological organisms, including some cyborgs, it instantaneously degenerates organic nervous systems.

This weapon is the counterpart to the EMP Grenade in that it's designed to target organic systems instead of electronic ones. As such, it will wipe out mutants with ease, somewhat affect cyborgs, and do absolutely nothing against wholly robotic enemies. However, unlike the EMP Grenade, it's quite capable of directly injuring or killing the Hacker.

Note that grenades cannot be disarmed once armed by double-clicking in the MFD.
