lt burns LAYERS of skin off. l wonder if you will be so complacent when your government uses it to control you and your family, maybe the military
will be real kind to you and yours and just regulate it to only defrost,eh.
No, it doesn't, other than that testing incident and one other where someone had something metallic in his pocket just the right size and shape, he
got a half-power shot at close range and it gave him a small second-degree burn (blisters) on his leg where the metal got hot.
ADS heats up the top 1/64" of skin somewhat, but what it mostly does is false-trigger your heat receptors. It feels hotter than blazes - you can't
help moving away from it, and I don't think I could make myself walk through the "fence" version of it, even knowing it wasn't doing any
If you are hit with a high power shot at short range, it will heat the top layer of skin up a good bit, but it takes a point-blank hit at full power
to actually cause burns.
The biggest issue with using ADS on crowds is causing a stampede. You are supposed to start at low power and sweep the beam across the crowd's feet,
or pick a group and "tap" the button while aiming at their feet. If you put it on full power and go for their faces, it'll definitely cause them to
panic and run, which could be bad for the ones that get knocked down. I'd be way more worried about stampedes than looking like Dark Man or
