I make all sorts of improvised weapons to introduce "the militarized hacker", which is basically a hacker that has a more aggressive & direct approach (like in Watch Dogs/Watch Dogs 2). This goes from long-lasting molotov cocktails, to plastic explosives to breach walls & smoke bombs for distraction, to hidden blades & electronic weapons like tasers and EMP's.
The only ones that are successful are my molotov cocktail, smoke bombs, EMP, and the taser.
Yo what did you expect? They say hackers are the warriors of the future, it's time to act like one too
