    Suggestion Title:
    Taser Effectiveness


    Suggestion Category:
    Roleplay Server


    Suggestion Sub-Category:
    Police, Crime, Taser, Down


    Suggestion:
    As of right now taser effectiveness isn't a thing, people get shot with the taser and walk it off like it was no big deal. I would like to suggest a temporary down state where MD has to remove the taser prongs from the suspect when they are in. This allows MD to provide RP on scene and gives Police a chance without using other means of stopping the individual. ~!~LONGER ANIMATION~!~

    If I could vote both I would. But i would say no. We should not force scripts on people to make them RP a taser properly.

    I don't think they should be downed, but I think the effectiveness of the tazer should be increased 100%.

    Forcing a script on them is the only way to ensure the taser's effectiveness, simply put they can run after X amount of seconds... I don't want them DOWN, but I want them to be in a state where they can't run right after the taser being deployed.

    I’d argue against this and double back by saying tasers should be less effective because IRL tasers have a high chance of not connecting or not working. No cop in the field trusts a taser with their life. It’s already hard for criminals why make it harder? This would seem too op

    Don’t think there should be a downed state it should be in line with rp for people to rp it out.

    I'd like to say that if possible it would be fine with me if someone was wearing a heavy jacket or something that the taser wouldn't work, however this can be abused and power gaming is applied. Tasers are effective in most of the video I have seen, you may have other research that says otherwise which is fine.

    However this is a game where people run in awkward directions knowing that they are avoiding the Officer's aim. Also to the point of RP, not everyone RPs getting hit with a taser, this is why I posted this suggestion in the first place. Most of the time when someone is tased by a Police Officer in-game they walk it off or run like it was no big deal. Then the admins get involved and say that doing something like that is power gaming as well.

    So I hear what you're saying, but Police need some way of detaining criminals that is non-lethal and won't cause severe harm to the individual.

    tasers are 100% effective when they work. More often than not, they don't work when they are needed (not including training videos and such). Drive stunning is 100% effective. The stungun itself is quite ineffective as there are an absolute shit-ton of things that stop it from working. Make it random by distance. <3 yards = 100% effective then a 20% decrease per additional yard.

    Here is donut operator, ex-cop current youtuber who reviews police bodycam footage and much more and a quick take on tasers (for different reasons)

    It could be a good idea to have the player be frozen for like 5 seconds after being tased.
