All weapons are presumed to have fairly high-tech ammunition; it’s halfway through the 21st Century, after all! However, ammunition that is specifically armor-piercing or with other special effects is generally expensive and hard to come by.
Gel Ammunition, however, is fairly available. Gel Ammunition reduces a weapon’s harm rating by 1, but it greatly reduces the likelihood of fatalities. (The GM will have to spend hold to inflict a fatality on an NPC taken out with gel ammunition.)
- Frag Grenades: 2-harm area. 300Y
- Flashbang Grenades: 2-stun area. 50Y
- Incendiary Grenades: 2-harm area burn. Target loses 1 point of armor. 500Y
The Sixth World can be a dangerous place, and there are good reasons to be cautious when going out. Most wageslaves don’t wear armor to the office, but for many people armor clothing is perfectly sensible. Depending on where you go for a night on the town, armor clothing may be par for the course—or it may get you barred at the door. The wealthy and comfortable don’t like being reminded of the dangers that lie beyond their safe neighborhoods.
Armor with the “unsubtle” tag can go unnoticed, but anyone paying significant attention within conversational range will recognize it for what it is. Armor with the “subtle” tag is actually low-key enough that you can go into swanky restaurants and social functions wearing it without any problems at all… so naturally it’s very expensive.
Armor Clothing: 1-armor. 500Y
Armor Clothing and Jacket or Lined Coat: 2-armor unsubtle heavy. 700Y
(Includes armored clothing underneath. A lined coat allows for the concealment of pistols and SMGs… though any alert or paranoid person will note that you’re wearing a coat big enough to hide a big gun.)
High-Fashion Protection: 1-armor subtle (can easily conceal pistols). 1000-5000Y
Camouflage Suit: 2-armor obvious (narratively: helps you hide in particular environments. These can be fatigues or skinsuits as appropriate). 1200Y
Full Body Armor: 3-armor obvious heavy (includes helmet). 12,000Y
Helmet: +1 armor obvious; flare compensation, lowlight OR thermographic. 1000Y
