Also, I like how in the high-tech future people still use 4 digit locks that can be brute-forced with a child's toy in like 3 seconds.

Check to see if the gun is loaded

After you leave, you duck into a secluded corner and check over your new gear:


Everything about the pistol is a little odd. It's clearly not a production model, and the fit and finish is superb. It has a bore, but it's too small for conventional bullets. There's seemingly no external ammunition feed either. From the power circuitry and barrel heavy weight distribution you're guessing it may be some kind of EM weapon?

The terminal is a standard hand terminal. A cursory systems check shows that it's already configured and hooked up to the wires, but unused beyond that. You slot the mystery chip into the terminal: it contains notes on AI research? It also has some incomplete maps and manifests of various SinDex facilities.

The ID reads "Kal Hinton" and lists a SinDex citizen code along with relevant biometric data. It appears genuine.

Brute force attacks can be countered with even more brute force. It's not uncommon for standard lockouts to be supplemented with more lethal measures. Rumor has it that some corp black division execs rig sensitive caches to explode violently on a single wrong attempt. Luckily you (and whoever messed with the safe) are not that paranoid.

Red Row is NuYork's premier market for metal and meat. Fed by slicer gangs and corp castoffs, the grey market chop-shops here provide the bulk of biomechanical replacements and enhancements for the sprawl. Competition for clientele is fierce, and each clinic has its own macabre display of engineering excellence: dismembered arms gesture and wave, detached legs run in endless circles or pump futilely in the air. One window even features an array of eyes that watch passerby. You twitch when they fix you in their gaze, but they quickly move on to someone else in the crowd.
You've got enough cash to take your pick, though a few stand out:

A) "Madison Evolved Engineering"
They seem to specialize in limb cybernetics. As if they notice your attention lingering, the arms on display twitch to life and beckon you closer.


B) "IOTA"
The small clinic with the display of eyes. Most are synthetic, but some appear organic.

poo poo, are they watching me again?

C) "ExaGen Consolidated"
No displays; just plain grey concrete, a simple sign, and a reinforced door. They must not need to advertise?

D) Keep looking
There's plenty more to choose from

This seems like a good idea, although maybe C is a good place to start on that, unless we have better ideas? We don't need upgrades, our gear is already pretty sweet; some insight into what we are would be pretty neat, though. Maybe root our firmware if we can find someone trustworthy enough, though I'm a bit hesitant because things might be they way they are for good reason.

I'm not actually sure I remember why we came here.

Might be better option to see what general theme the thread wants if we go the upgrade route. I think our set up is great, but we need more boom. Personally I want an arm that fires emp grenades or a leg mounted rocket launcher or a dick gun. Something classy.

I don't think that's what we're here for. In general, why compromise structural integrity and flexibility by installing something permanently (replacing our already very fancy looking hardware) when we can just carry stuff?

I always assumed there were three cylinders total. Probably not, looking closely, but it still makes more sense that way.
