Id regular.png Identification Card

These things get you from A to B, as long as they are equipped with access to A, B and everything in between. Every employee of the NSS Exodus has an identification card. Your ID has your name, occupation, and a device that broadcasts your access to the station's autonomous systems, which is used both to identify you and open up airlocks you have access to.

Unsurprisingly, the access on a given ID tends to correspond to the job that the ID is associated with: this is why the Quartermaster's ID has access to the Cargo Bay and Quartermaster's Office, while an Assistant's ID has access to neither. Generally speaking, a given crew member should only have their own ID (though there are exceptions). In other words, if you spot an Assistant with the Quartermaster's ID in hand, something isn't quite right, and the Assistant might well be up to no good.

If you hold an ID in your active hand and click an airlock, the ID in your hand is used to determine whether it opens instead of the ID in your ID slot. IDs will also grant you access to Computers, but this will sometimes require you to insert the ID into the computer: remember to eject it again once you have logged out!

A person with the rights to access an Identification Computer can edit your ID to add or remove these access capabilities. Generally speaking, IDs should only be modified by the Captain or Head of Personnel, but special circumstances may change this.

If your face is covered, your ID is the only way of identifying you. Cover your face and wear no ID, and you'll show up as "Unknown" to anyone who looks at you (although speaking will also identify you by the sound of your voice... Usually.).

An ID is a tiny object and thus can be stored in a box. It can also be stuffed into your PDA, which can in turn be stored in your uniform's ID slot. A PDA with an ID in it can be swiped just like an ID in many situations (when purchasing goods from vending machines, for instance) and will work just as well, but you'll still need to take the ID out of the PDA for some tasks.

When a ID Card is examined, it displays the following:

  • "[NAME]'s ID Card [TITLE]: The current assignment on the card is [TITLE]."

Hand Labeler

Hand labeler
Found in: Primary Tool Storage, Cargo Bay, Medbay
Used for: Sticking labels on things.
Strategy: Used to stick a label onto something's name. Click to and type in the label name. Click on object to label. Click again to remove label.
Useful for labelling things. Cannot be used on people.

Proximity Sensor

Proximity Sensor
Found in: Primary Tool Storage, Cargo Bay, Vendomat, Toximate 3000
Used for: Mostly for bombs, grenades, or robots.
Strategy: Used for making bombs, grenades, or devices that activate when people get near them.
A small sensor that beeps when it (or something next to it) moves. Is not set off by walking.


Found in: Cargo Bay, Tool Storage, just about anywhere
Used for: Holding things.
Strategy: Put small items inside of it.
You can store a large amount of small items in it. For example, a Pen, a breath mask, an emergency oxygen tank or an ID Card, would all be considered small and fit in a box.

On arriving the to the ship, each individual will have been provided with a box with an emergency oxygen tank and mask. Despite the generous effort and work we put into distributing these boxes, slacking employees tend do dispose of them early on, and those who don't, often use them to hide things.

Throughout the station, there are several varieties of boxes. The plain box is what most employees are used to, however NanoTrasen also labels boxes to hold different types of implants, spare ID cards, and even Donk Pockets!

Additionally, boxes can be unfolded into cardboard sheets, which can be used to make stuff.... that is made of cardboard! So now you can be the cardborg that you always were! Beep Boop!


Found in: Internal Affairs Office, Detective's Office
Used for: Holding paper, folders, and other office-based things.
Strategy: Put the files from your latest case into it.
A briefcase is a bulky item that can hold a large amount of tiny items.

By default it is filled with one pen and six sheets of paper. They are very sturdy, so they make a decent weapon (blurs vision when it hits heads). Internal Affairs and Detective get one.

Secure Briefcase

Secure Briefcase
Found in: Bridge, Captain's Quarters
Used for: Keeping things under lock and key.
Strategy: Put valuable, sensitive items into it.
A lockable briefcase is in the Bridge at the start of each round. It can set to lock with a 5 digit code, however it is not overly secure, as it can be hacked open given half a minute, or forced open with certain tools.


Found in: Cargo Bay, just about anywhere
Used for: Holding equipment.
Strategy: Put spare equipment onto it.
Used for equipment storage in the station. Not used for torturing suspected traitors. Racks can be made with a single sheet of metal. They are flat and wide, incapable of being walked over, and are bolted together. It can hold any number of items, but it holds them stacked on top of each other like a table. They are most common in maintenance tunnels and EVA.

Station Bounced Radio

Station Bounced Radio.png
Station Bounced Radio
Found in: Cargo Bay, Tool Storage, EVA, Bridge, any autolathe.
Used for: Communicating with the station.
Strategy: Keep one with you if headset communications fail. Engineers in particular would be well-advised to keep one handy.
A simple to use radio: click it, set the frequency, and turn on the microphone to talk. It will pick up any sounds from surrounding areas.

The station bounced radio will function similarly to a standard earpiece radio if you put it in your pocket or in your hand; thus you can use the "say ;radio message" function as normal without turning on the microphone to broadcast. You can also "say :l" or "say :r" to speak into a station-bounced radio in your left or right hand respectively, which will send your voice to whichever channel that radio is tuned to, again without needing to turn the microphone on. Be wary of accidentally leaving the microphone on: this can cause your messages to "echo" if the speaker is also on, or make you accidentally broadcast whatever you happen to be blabbing about with the person next to you to the station at large.

This is the only portable radio that will correctly function in electrical storms, or when the Telecommunications satellite is damaged.

Some radios are especially tuned to a clandestine network where unmentionable contraband may be obtained. These also have an emergency detonation button that can do some serious damage.

Duct Tape

Duct Tape
Found in: Primary Tool Storage, Locker Room
Used for: Sticking paper on a vertical surface. (Windows, walls)
Strategy: Display your thirteen complaints for everyone to see and Security to tear down.
Apply Duct Tape to a paper then attach the paper to a wall. To remove tape from a paper, remove it from the wall and click on the paper. Can also be used to tie up people and muzzle them, but it is not very effective.


Found in: Cargo Bay, Head of Personnel's Office, Library, Medbay, anywhere that has a paper bin
Used for: Writing things onto it.
Strategy: Fill out a form, write your life story, or send a complaint to the Head of Security.
You write on it with a pen. Medical doctors want it for forms, Quartermasters want it for forms, even Internal Affairs want it for forms. Librarians can use it to print books. See the Guide to Paperwork for further information.

Remote Signaling Device

Remote Signaling Device
Found in: Tool Storage, Research Division
Used for: Signaling remotely.
Strategy: Attach it to something, go somewhere else, and activate it remotely!
Signals things remotely. Used for remote hacking, bombs, and grenades. You can right-click them and activate a type of 'Dead Man's Switch', which has an 80% chance of triggering if you are shot.

Water Tank

Water Tank
Found in: Maintenance, Hydroponics
Used for: Holding water.
Strategy: Use it to refill on water when your bucket or fire extinguisher runs out of it.
Used to fill something with water. Has 1000 units of water to start.

Fuel Tank

Fuel Tank
Found in: Maintenance, Engineering
Used for: Filling things with fuel.
Strategy: Refill your welder with it. Turn your welder off beforehand.
Use a welder on them to refuel. Make sure it's turned off! Has 1000 units of welding fuel. Fuel is extremely flammable and may be ignited with matches or cigarettes/other smoking implements. Caution is advised.


Found in: Chapel
Used for: Being religious.
Strategy: Preach the word of your religion. Thump the cover in emotes while emphasizing points during your sermons. Refrain from hitting people with it.
Used by the Chaplain. Hitting people with it used to perform special actions, but this is no longer the case. It's just a regular book now, although you can store small items inside it.

Janitorial Supplies


Found in: Janitor's Closet, Cargo Bay
Used for: Mopping up dirty messes.
Strategy: Be the janitor the station deserves.
Cleans the floor when wet. Must be wet with the mop bucket. The Janitor starts with one. Wet floors make people that are running slip. Be sure to point at them and laugh Put down a Wet Floor Sign.

Space Cleaner

Space Cleaner.png
Space Cleaner
Found in: Janitor's Closet, Cargo Bay, Chemistry Laboratory
Used for: Cleaning blood off the walls.
Strategy: Spray it onto something to make it clean and shiny.
A better cleaner than water. Doesn't cause people to slip.


Found in: Janitor's Closet, Cargo Bay, Hydroponics, Robotics and Mech Bay
Used for: Holding liquids.
Strategy: Fill it with water, or any other liquid.
A bucket holds liquid only, most commonly water. It holds up to 70 units. They can be used by several different jobs as part of their actual duties.

Light Bulb

Light bulbs combined.png
Light Bulb or Tube
Found in: Janitor's Closet, Cargo Bay, Emergency Storage, Engineering
Used for: Lighting dark areas.
Strategy: Replace any broken or burnt out lights around the station with these.
There are two kinds of light bulbs. The first kind is a small bulb which are mostly used in maintenance tunnels, smaller areas where not as much lighting is needed, and on the Mining Asteroid. The second kind is the light tube, which can be found everywhere on the station from the hallways all the way to the Bridge. Both kinds of light bulbs can be made with an Autolathe, Protolathe, and can be ordered in boxes from the QM. They also spawn in a few places at the start of the round, like Emergency Storage.



Crates are containers for items. Especially large items, such as corpses, lockers, and certain robots or equipment cannot fit inside them. Confusingly, some crates that can be ordered by the Quartermaster contain objects that will not go back into the crates once they are taken out.

Give Unto the QM his Dues

Crates are worth 5 supply points to a Quartermaster, which can be used to get more supplies for the station's whole benefit.

Of Locks and Access

Just like the rest of the station, even crates have variable levels of access. The Quartermaster can't unlock anything that is locked by default, for various reasons. Security crates can be opened by security personnel and those with higher access, and so on. An emag can get into locked crates regardless of access, however.


Also knows as wardrobes or lockers, closets are among the most common and arguably the most useful of containers on the station. Nearly anything can fit inside, barring other closets, crates, and certain especially large objects like racks and Mulebots. Coffins in the Chapel also count as lockers.

Of Locks and Access

Besides being welded shut, some closets can be locked with the appropriate ID. Several levels of access exist, such as security, captain, and private-level access. These can be opened with the proper level ID, emag item, or a few good laser blasts.

If you yourself are inside a locker, you can still see your surroundings. Normally you can move in any direction to exit the locker, but if the locker is locked or welded you will be unable to. At that point, if you try to move around, you will instead throw yourself against the sides of the locker, making a loud BANG BANG sound that can be heard.
