    Again with walls: What about Hivelords walling entire sections of map before first drop? Like today was round where one Hivelord spammed hard-resin on the entire Hydro road and in entire Hydro itself. With second, they could wall entire nexus and cargo.

    Can a grenadier specialist leave his grenade launcher in prep and use a rifle with an UGL instead?

    Still carrying grenades, still doing his job and grenadier things, just doing it with an UGL instead of the standalone grenade launcher.

    It seems to me to be a playstyle thing more than a discarding of role-essential equipment, since the grenadier role IMO is more about the big belt of grenades and the grenade-proof armour than the grenade launcher, but someone was saying that it's against some unwritten rule to do that.


    I ahelped and a moderator (can't remember the name) said it was OK as far as he knew but I should post in here as well.

    Speaking more broadly - is it OK for a limited role to ditch non-essential articles of equipment, provided they're still fulfilling their role's duties effectively?

    What are the rules for using Orbital Bombardments and CAS on drop ships after a complete evacuation with no intent to redeploy? - Firing any OB is fine except ones that hit the dropships, accidental strikes included. This means you can fire around the DS, you can shoot by the launchpad or on the LZ itself if the dropship is currently in the hangar, but any shot that hits the dropship itself will get you in trouble. This is because the dropship is not designed with the ability to dodge OBs with and as such, it's an unfair way to easily kill Xeno after you've already lost the ground.
    Could you clarify whether it's also forbidden to target the dropships with CAS or if it's just with OB's you're forbidden? I'm thinking mostly of Danger Close air support when evacuating.

    Is it possible to record game play. (Not stream) then use the recording as “body cam” footage IC when you have a MP role?

    Updated to this point. Also added a clarification on what makes a mutiny valid/invalid.

    Could you clarify whether it's also forbidden to target the dropships with CAS or if it's just with OB's you're forbidden? I'm thinking mostly of Danger Close air support when evacuating.
    CAS has the same rules as OB and I've updated the text to make that more clear.

    With the mutiny update, are Captains no longer allowed to BE medical staff for healing a Mutineer?

    Or can they give a warning then if they do not listen blast the head off a doctor /medic?

    1. Mutinies are only on the captain right? What is the stance of mutinying a Lieutenant commander or anyone lower? There have been moments where I've had jackasses were trying to rally up a group of 5 in their squad to try to ahelp for permission to kill me, as a PFC no less, I won't even point out which squad this obviously was.

    2. Are xenos allowed to unnest you, neuro you, and nest you again when they see you try to struggle out of the nest so that you don't unnest at an inconvenient time?

    3. Is group punching someone until their bone breaks overescalation? Or is it fine because it's punching?

    When the ship is being boarded by a hostile, and you are trying to bring a prisoner to the pods because it is unsafe to release them. If the prisoner is constantly resisting and 1) trying to run away or 2) trying to slow you down so you both get killed. Can you use leathal force at that point? Or do you need to recapture, ignore them, or keep stunning them till they are in a pod.

    For example, I was the sole MP on a round yesterday and had a prisoner lay on the ground and actively resist being moved. the only way I could move him to his cell was with stun baton him. If the round came to a Xeno boarding and he continued, should I keep stunning him, slowing us down and increasing our risk?

    Pretty sure emerald said its okay to lase into space in prison for CAS in a forum post somewhere. Is it okay to lase into the fog in LV?

    So that CAS can use offsets (like 6 north of the laser) to fire into the actual area where the xenos are like this https://streamable.com/8xsqa Xenos still hear the massive 5 second **WOOOOOOOSSSSHHH** before shit actually hits

    (laser was south of the POV in the fog)
