Narcojet does have "Injection" listed as its only vector, however, so may not be allowed as a gas attack.

This is (or was, rather) what made DMSO so popular, and why I loves me some Injector Dart rounds for shotguns.

Maybe the 5E armory book will include some kind of bee-hive type grenade/mine. *nudge nudge, to whoever*.

Kamikaze in gas form can also be useful, if delivered surreptitiously, in dealing with a security watch-station or bunkroom, or any gang hangout. Without a clear target, otherwise elite troops can be transformed into over-armed  weefle-runners with attitude problems. This is, admittedly, a dangerous tactic, for what should be obvious reasons, but it could potentially leave a majority of a security shift hospitalized or on disciplinary leave, and replaced by overworked members pulled from other shifts, or hastily contracted mercenaries (who will lack a home turf advantage). The reduced surprise factor may be worth it, especially if the opposition is known to make use of paracritters requiring handlers.

Wasn't DMSO crazy popular because of the ridiculous "take perfectly legal insecticide that's only harmful to metahumans if ingested, put in DMSO, murder metahumans because somehow that works" rules interpretation?
