One thing that strikes me is the apparent complete lack of non-lethal weapons to simply knock-out and subdue enemies without killing them.

 

Where are the tasers, the rubber bullets, the tranquilizer darts, the shock batons, the EMP guns which only temporarily stun robots/synths instead of destroying them?

 

Where are the slave collars which permanently turn people/cratures docile?

 

Isn't it strange that even the Institute seemingly hasn't really developed any non-lethal weaponry yet, to collect specimens unharmed? Why not just modify the Institute weapons to also have a stun option like Star Trek phasers?

 

I mean, it's surely great that there is now a perk which gives one the ability to subdue certain enemies through intimidation, but no non-lethal weapon options for everyone to use?  You cannot even just knock people out using a simple baton.

 

Why are there no flashbang grenades to temporarily paralyze enemies, or tranquilizer gas grenades to knock them unconscious?

 

Anyone wanna change that?

That is one feature from FONV that I sorely miss. Knocking unconscious NPC's instead of killing them. I also used a mod that would let you loot unconscious bodies and that was a total blast.

 

I used to love going to a Raider camp and knocking them all out. Then stealing their valuables and giving them all Pre War Bonnets and making them wear them. :)

 

Watching them wake up and run around with those bonnets on was a good laugh every time. I hope this can be done too.

One weapon i could imagine right from the start would be an institute subdue beam weapon which simply applies the perk effect through a non-damaging beam pistol with limited range, maybe especially suited for synths to make reclamation easier?. Or maybe a (silent) microwave pistol (maybe based on the gamma ray gun) which projects invisible microwaves and overheats the brain of the target, shutting it down and making the (organic) target lose consciousness.

 

Or a special flare gun ammo which shoots a battery powered taser round which sticks to the target and appllies incapacitating electroshocks for a certain time. Would make the flare gun actually a useful and valid option.

 

A classic taser/stun upgrade for any melee weapon should pose no problem whatsoever.
