injection weapon + serum?


Starfinder General Discussion

Injection (p181) says "This weapon or its ammunition can be filled with a drug, an injury poison, or a medicinal compound."

Could you theoretically use a serum (p225) in an injection weapon? Eg, Mk1 healing serum in a needler pistol?

Yes. The description of darts even mentions medics using this strategy to heal at a distance.


This could be interesting given how much more deadly poisons should be in this system.

How available/affordable are poisons?


Be very careful not to mix up your darts, wind up poisoning your allies/healing the enemy.

"Honest mistake, I swear! The characters for "Serum" and "Poison" look really similar in Kasatha!"


The fact that these things exist is perfect for two homebrew hellknight orders I'm designing. This makes my life considerably easier.

diseases and poison


I would argue that you can't use serums in the needle guns as they are not a "drug/medicinal/ or poison". Which has its own section separate from serums.

Though if it does you may have issues actually healing any damage, since you deal damage on hit in addition to healing with the serum. Gonna need better Serums. And let's hope you don't have Weapon Specialization either...
