The Farmer's Best Friend cattle prod from Wattz Electronics was originally purposed for herding cattle before the war. After the bombs fell, humans quickly found that by wrapping a coil around it and hooking up some batteries, it makes a good semi-lethal weapon.

d20 Modern Rules[edit]

The weapon can be set to either deal 1d4 lethal damage or 1d8 non-lethal damage. This decision must be declared before making an attack roll.

On a successful critical hit, the target must make a Fortitude save equal to the damage dealt or fall unconscious for 1d4 hours.

  • Repair: (Parts DC: 40; Parts Used: 10; Repair DC 25; Time: 10h) A Farmer's Best Friend cattle prod can be repaired with mechanical parts with a Repair check.
