Dazer and Multiterrain

Troopers possessing the Multiterrain Special Skill don't apply the effects of the Very Difficult Terrain Zone.


The Dazer is an area denial element designed to hinder and impede the movement and tactical evolution of the enemy on the ground. It is a hybrid piece of equipment that combines different advanced technologies to artificially generate an area of operational nightmare. The main system is a sonic / electromagnetic emitter that affects the inner ear or the gyroscopic system of anyone who is within its radius of action, causing vertigo sensation, imbalance and, in organic beings, dizziness. This system causes a reduction in the movement capacity and maneuver of the affected troops. The secondary system, on the other hand, is an ejector of high-density nanoparticles that saturate the area increasing the thickness and atmospheric viscosity. These nanoparticles, in addition to impeding the movement through them, have a collateral effect of ballistic detention, reducing the offensive capacity of any troop that is inside. Comparatively, the Dazer is a high-tech element whose effective development as a compact element is relatively recent. Therefore, it is not very common in the Human Sphere's areas of operations, fortunately for all those who have to deal with one.
