Hypothetically if there were a wasp-like drone that would sting victims with a needle. What would that drone look like, statistically? Likely mini similar to the flyspy, obviously some needle apparatus, but would there be an odd 'soft fornit to work? Would it be a dart instead of a contact attack? Any thoughts?
Yeah, TMs got thrown in the cell with Bubba the Love Troll and sandpaper for lube.

In Renraku Shutdown there used to be drones let that, but any drone today can be modified by using Rigger 5 basically.
Flyspy or similar drones would be optimal for the job.

I'd count a syringe as a reach 0 melee weapon, so a Mini Weapon Mount will suffice. And yeah, I'd think it will need an exotic weapon autosoft.

So a Spy-Fly can sport a Mini Drone Weapon Mount, which can hold a hold-out pistol or light pistol. A Narcoject One from Street Lethal is a light pistol. The only downside is it will only shoot doses of Narcoject (which is still 15 S immediate).

Well, not immediate immediate. Immediate Toxins/Drugs apply at the end of the Combat Turn after all, so they can still fire back and destroy your drone before they run out of Initiative.

So make sure to hit them with stick n shock or a taser first, to reduce initiative and stun, then dart them to knock out.
Spooky, what do you do this pass? Shoot him with my thunderstruck gauss rifle. (Rolls)  8 hits. Does that blow his head off?

There's also the called shot in R&G to move a toxin's speed up one category. Arguably "immediate" could go up to the "truly immediate" speed slap/stim patches use.
RPG mechanics exist to give structure and consistency to the game world, true, but at the end of the day, you’re fighting dragons with algebra and random number generators.
