What use is the weapon rack?

Postby grimmy72 » Fri Jan 02, 2015 11:23 am

I know we need one weapon rack in the armory, but what does it DO? Specifically, do we ever need more then one weapon rack if we want to equip more guards with tazers for example?

You need only one.

The armed guards also take shotguns from the weapon rack. The prisoners also do the same in case a riot breaks out, so keep your weapon rack protected.

The weapon rack only serves one purpose: to fulfill the requirements of the armoury, and cosmetically.

So, because they are normally always in the armoury keep them protected, but outside the armoury, they serve no real purpose and hold no weapons.

I don't think weapon racks actually do anything. The actual room (the armory) supplies the contraband, not the rack itself. You could build a weapon rack anywhere in your prison and prisoners will never get any guns, as far as I know.

EDIT: Someone beat me to it.

Hmm.. so 40% of my guards not having tazers despite roll-out is just them being lazy during tazer-class. I'll go have a word with them about that :)
Thanks for all replies!
