When you've got to take them all alive, the roomsweeper is the answer. A large, bulky contraption, the roomsweeper is similar to a proton pack in appearance, with the exception that the firing wand looks like a large (and rather menacing) flashlight.
When activated, the roomsweeper fires a blast of energy that stuns and weakens anyone unlucky enough to stand in it's way, strong enough on it's highest setting to knock down a room full of hardened wasters. In addition, the roomsweeper can be set to spirit attack mode, allowing it to affect both spirits and those in heavy armor.

Hercules Suit

The Hercules Suit is a powered exoskeleton designed to give even the weakest waster the strength of a god! While powered, anyone wearing the suit has their strength boosted to 3d12+8. In addition, the right arm has extra strong motivators, giving the wearer a truly wicked jab!
The suit is an open frame, so generally doesn't provide any armor. It is not designed to be worn with armor, though form-fitting armors can usually be worn underneath it in place of regular clothes. In addition, it's designed to be worn snugly over the user's clothes, and can't be concealed by anything less than a full duster.

Low Light Goggles- A Parts is Parts submission!

Darkness can be dangerous. Darkness is the friend of the ambusher, the assassin, and the things that go bump in the night. Thankfully, a junker with a pair of night vision goggles doesn't have to worry about darkness. He can see in pitch blackness as easily as broad daylight.
The low light goggles are roughly the same size as a pair of ski goggles, with a small penlight attached to either side. When activated, the wearer can see in any lighting short of pitch blackness. The small lights attached to the goggles provide a small amount of light when no natural light is available. The lights are so dim that they can only be seen by those with low light abilities. In addition, the whole apparatus has a AV 1(a 1 in 3 chance of hitting the goggles on a head shot), and provides flare compension against overly bright lights.

Gizmo: Low Light Goggles
Frame Size: 1 (7 slots, S:3)

Power: Sensor [passive, low light (1.5 slots, E:1, M:1, Drain: 1/hr)]

Power: Light [mini flashlight, minor flaw:light only visible through amplification (1.9 slots, E:1, M:1, Drain: 1/hr)]

Power: Armor [AV2* (1.4 slots, C:1, S:1)]
* The goggles only have one level of armor. The other level represents the flare compensation.

Extras: 22 pt powerpack, Flow-optimized (overall drain reduced to 1/hr)

Multi-purpose Adjustable Laser Rifle (MALR, or Mauler)- A Parts is Parts submission!

The mauler is powerful and flexible laser rifle that can deliver an optimal attack against nearly any target. A large weapon, it is comparable in length to most sniper rifles, though it is a bit bulkier. Its front grip has a series of sliders that allow the shooter to adjust the damage, rate of fire, and armor piercing capabilities of the weapon without ever removing her eye from the sight. In addition, the mauler has an advanced targeting scope that makes shooting the most distant target child's play.

 Gizmo  Speed  ROF  Range  Damage  Cost
Mauler  1  3  20 (40 w/scope) 5d6 stun / 5d8 / 5d10 (AP 0/2/4)  Special

Multi-tool #1- A Parts is Parts submission!

Created for the junker with a thing for telephone-alarm clocks and television-toasters, multi-tools mix several useful devices into a single handy device.

Power: Sensor [motion detection w/3d8 rating, 10 yd range, and 360° sweep; passive geiger counter w/360° sweep; passive sound detection (14.5 slots, E:3, M:2, drain 4/hr for motion detector and geiger counter, 1/hr for microphone)]

Lightning Fist

A truly powerful weapon, the lightning fist consists of two large metal gauntlets, connected by heavy spirit cable to an imposing-looking backpack. When activated, the gauntlets crackle with waves of electricity, increasing the wearer's brawling damage. In addition, a plasma ball can be generated by clapping the two gauntlets together. This ball can then be thrown at the unlucky target with a Throwin':Balanced check. Both hands must be used to generate the plasma ball, as well as to throw it.
It is important to note that the lightning fist is less effective against metal armor. When used against a metal target, it's damage is reduced to STR+2d8. Metal has no effect on the plasma ball.

 Lightning Fist  1  +2  STR+3d10  3/rd

An odd device, a floater is single person hot air balloon. It is made of two parts. The first is the engine/harness, roughly the size of a laundry basket. It is a fairly compact unit, and only has enough storage space in it to store the deflated balloon. The pilot sits strapped to the outside of the engine. The balloon itself, inflated, is about the size of a refrigerator, and folds down to the size of a dictionary. The floater is a nimble vehicle, as far as balloons go, and has a large enough battery to fly for 18 hours.
