Iím trying to find the rules for customizing drones.

I want to equip several small drones with strobe lights, smoke canisters, flares and badass speakers so every battle can be a fave where my team, wearing the special dampening helmets I give them, go unhindered but the enemy is trying to fight it out in the middle of a race gaining massive penalties.

How do I make my drones drop the bass?

Option 1 is to buy a bunch of Noisquitoes (spelling?) as this is basically what they are built for.

Option 2 is to go into the back of Rigger 5, and look through the drone modification rules to see if you can get them to do what you want.

Note that Noizquitos are OP broken. -.-

I saw that they were banned from official play.

The problem is there's no limit on them and they give crazy penalties even by themselves. They can be houseruled to not be horribly broken of course.

Beside the horrible broken "make you blind and deaf" mechanic they are also micro drones with 1 point of body and the ability to be downgraded. That makes them really, really dangerous and customizable. You can actually mount heavy pistols on them (turning them into flying guns more than anything else)

So yeah, they are as close to the non-plus ultra as a spy drone can get.
