Who said running the shadows was easy? Dodging bullets, swords, spirits, and spells just to name a few. Elves, Dwarves, Trolls, even the occasional Dragon can make any Shadowrun go bad.

Shock Glove: Insulated plas-fabric gloves with a wire-mesh covering.
When triggered by impact, mounted capacitors discharge
an electric current. When striking with shock gloves, fist damage
is reduced to (STR –1)M, but the gloves deliver an extra 7S Stun

Stun Baton: The standard riot-control weapon, this weighted
stick delivers an electrical charge.


Why does it not deliver standard club damage as well with a -1?

I have a question in response.
As I've never read the part about fist damage being reduced to STR-1 for Shock Gloves, and have always been under the impression that Shock Gloves only dealt 5S(e) damage. My question is: Is there an updated Errata I'm not aware of?

To attempt a joking answer via the, "stick-in-your-eye" method: Because they didn't put it in the books that way.

so far I figure they are too fragile for a full powered swing...

As for the additional damage noted above, it is a direct quote from the 3E Core Rulebook.

Page....
122 and 275.... its actually noted in a bunch of places. It must have been done for a reason.

Ah, Okay. I've not looked at a 3E book in almost a decade. I should have paid more attention to the Title line eh?

I believe the idea with the stun baton was more that your not actually hitting the person full on so much as basically making a 'touch attack'. They are intended to be a non lethal weapon after all, so generally the idea isn't to beat some one to death with it. That said theoretically there's no reason you cant, and system wise even with just stun damage you just keep hitting them till they overflow into physical.
