The Gene Splicer is an equippable item that allows the player to splice Genetic Materials to gain semi-permanent new abilities.

A basic version of the Advanced Gene Splicer, able to be fabricated by any crew member, but only able to contain one genetic material item.


When equipped in a character's Health Slot (accessible from the health GUI), the effects of any contained genetic material will be applied. Gene splicers can be applied to a player's own character, an npc crewmate, or any incapacitated human.

Removing a splicer will destroy any contained genetic material and cause 10 Organ Damage and 0.5 Stun.
