What, not enjoying shooting bee-filled gauss slugs off a sinking aircraft carrier in a zero-g sandstorm using advanced dead zone rules? ;-)

What page can I find the bee-filled Gauss slugs in Interstellar Ops?

Oh, yes, optional rules I hate.  Stackpoleing is at the top of my list.  I don't like the rule with woods absorbing damage. I think that's it.

Bee-filled gauss slugs is an old forum joke that goes back to the days of Usenet.  And it's best not to ask for further details, few people can take the SAN loss.

I don't have TO personally, but are there rules for Bees in the Cockpit (and how to get them out)?

There are rules for flesh-eating insect swarms, which could be a threat to a mech with the Poor Environmental Sealing quirk.

I just assumed it was some sort of reference to hive rounds as found in Car Wars back in the day.

The...'history'...involved is, well...involved.  Just safe to say that the person most responsible for the joke is no longer with us and leave it at that.

Bee guided gauss slugs? Sure. Not even as crazy as real life.

In ww2, the us/uk had pidgeon-guided bombs. You read that right. They were trained to peck at the image of a ship on a screen in front of them to get food. They put them into a box in the bomb and tied the guidance fins to their pecks. https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Project_Pigeon

No-Dachi has a counter-argument. Nothing further? Ok.
