Cryptographic Sequencer
Found in: Ordered via syndicate uplink, costs 6 telecrystals.
Used for: Gaining entrance to restricted areas or lockers, unlocking hidden features in machinery, bending borgs to your will.
Strategy: Use this to enter areas you don't have access to. Just make sure nobody sees you as the door will spark.
Description
Also called an E-Mag (electromagnetic card), it allows you to quite literally open anything. It will open any door, locker, crate, and can short out weapon locks. The issue is that once used on something, that something breaks permanently, doors stay stuck open, locker don't lock, weapons can be used by anyone. While this can have the desired effect, it also leaves a trail for people to follow (mostly doors). It also has a fairly noticeable visual when you use it (generally sparks shooting out of whatever it was used on), but besides gaining access through mundane locks, there are a number of other uses that E-Mags have. You can use it on Robots, to make them generally malicious to the station, they can be used on certain computers to gain unusual effects, the most useful of which being allowing you drop the emergency shuttle countdown to 10 seconds if you use it on the shuttle computer. It also works on the QM's computer to order spec ops crates, and is just overall brilliant for QMs, allowing them to unlock crates. E-Magging welded or bolted doors will also break them, leaving them closed shut for good. E-magging a cyborg will change its lawset to follow you, and only those who you designate. You can order it to then go on a killing spree, retrieve an item, or any other number of things! It's like having your own personal slave!

Experiment! Who knows what else it could work on.
