Of course, mine would be the Krime Tingler!

Itís hard to beat the Shock Gloves for sheer efficiency and ease of use... But I find that grenades of barrier foam have a ridiculous number of extremely fun uses if youíre creative.

I like Flashbangs when you're at a distance. As for up close and personal, Stun Staff is wicked. Intimidating, Range, and you can go 'I'm doing a touch attack' for +2 and ties are a hit, versus no bonus damage from net hits.

I still prefer an extreme ordinance of Gel Rounds in *insert favorite gun here*. We use the Knockdown rules frequently, so its like dominoes going up and down with them unless its an ork or troll or something like that. 
Just needs a little bit a cayenne pepper.

Narcojet and a needle; I'm currently looking for a reusable injection weapon to mount on my flyspy. If anyone could point me to one, that would be very appreciated.

Also, reminder to everyone that any weapon is a non-lethal weapon if your target has enough armor.

I have to 2nd RC for Gel Rounds myself,  usable with any of the Ranged Weapon skills.

That said, some other favorites depending on alternate skill used...

UAC = Shock Gloves
Clubs = Stun Baton
Throwing = FlashBang Grenades.
Spellcasting = Clout, Blast, & StunBall   (Or Fling using Flashbangs above.)
Summoning = Various Spirits using Binding, Engulf, &/or Confusion

I'm a simple man. I see something needs shooting, I shoot it with a warhawk. For nonlethal I like to load stick n shock because they still also work on drones. Flashbangs are a close second. They're just fun.

Defiance-Ex Taser
As long as the Krime Tingler isn't errataed yet, it beats every other taser in efficiency. It's legal, it packs as much punch as a Ruger Super Warhawk, can be used in melee and informs you just how fragged your target is now - invaluable if you actually want to keep the weapon non-lethal.

There's the injector pen in Cutting Aces, p. 134., it can inject one dose of a drug or toxin before "running out of ammo." But one dose should be all you need.

...agreed, shock gloves are great particularly for a low strength character.  Like Stick & Shock they also work on electronics.

My favourite slap patch attack is Lael, not only does it knock them out but they forget who you and your team were.

The best knockout weapon I discovered was in the Neo Tokyo Missions: a pistol crossbow loaded with with Static Shaft S&S bolts, a bit expensive but pretty much will do the job in one shot as they start at 12DV(S) and -5 AP.

Thanks, that's what I'm looking for. Now to make a few quick acquisition rolls....

I agree with Jack_Spade, the Defiance has never let me down.

However, my favorite non-lethal weapon is more of an addition to natural weapons... Nerve Strike adept ability.  ;D

DANG, that is potent & probably very fitting for NTM.
