Cyclotron Proton Pack; 1984 Mk 1.5
The Proton Pack is a standard piece of particle accelerating machinery created by Egon Spengler and used by the Ghostbusters. It is our primary tool for “busting” ghosts. It has a hand-held thrower (AKA “Neutrona Wand”) connected to a backpack-sized cyclotron. The Proton Pack fires a ‘semi-controlled’ stream of protons that neutralizes the negatively charged electromagnetic radiation of a ghost allowing it to be held in the active stream.
In the early 1990’s, Dr. Spengler created modular proton packs that can incorporate “add-ons” to enhance the functionality of the regular proton pack.
Proton Pack Mk 2.5 with Plasma Distribution System
The Plasma Distribution System is an integration of the Proton Pack that uses a self-regulating strain of ectoplasm to impair entities, neutralize caustic Black Slime, and reveal otherwise invisible structures that reside on the ethereal plane.
With a long range and endless supply of regenerating positively charged slime, the Slime Blower is a great tool to disperse most corporeal entities. Better still, the depolarizing effect it has on Black Slime makes this the perfect device to disperse nearly all Black Slime creatures.
Dark Matter Generator with Plasma Distribution System
The Dark Matter Generator emits a high-capacity “stasis” stream of order-reducing particles that hypo-bond to ectoplasmic matter, effectively immobilizing ghosts. The Stasis Stream has nothing to do with cold, but the end result is similar to freezing them.
While this tool won’t disperse any creatures by itself, it effectively “freezes” enemies in their place (or, at the very least, slows them), allowing frightened civilians time to escape, and the Ghostbusters time switch to a more powerful device and dish out more damage.
Synchrotron Proton Pack; 2016 Mk 3.1
In 2016 Dr. Jillian Holtzmann, attempted to redesign the standard proton pack which has remained mostly unchanged since 1984. She replaced the outdated cyclotron with a cutting edge synchrotron to produce the particle punch to capture any specter we encounter. Synchrotrons generate a ton of heat and require a cryo- cooling system which is located in the black box at the bottom of the pack. To eliminate the need for the operator to be required to wear a EMP grounding collar, Dr. Holtzmann added a “freaking faraday cage”.
Psychomagnotheric Slime Charger; 1989 Mk 1
The Psychomagnotheric Slime Charger A.K.A. the Slime Blower is a Ghostbusting tool first introduced in 1989 during the Vigo Incident. They were utilized by Winston Zeddemore and Ray Stantz to “animate” the Statute of Liberty in an attempt to generate enough good vibes to neutralize a negatively charged slime wall.
The Slime Blowers are used to spray positively charged Psychomagnotheric Slime. It can directly break the hold a spirit has on this plane effectively neutralizing a possession.
Ecto-Charger Pack; 1990 Mk 2
Ready! Set! Slime ’em! Ghostbusters wear this special backpack to get rid of bad feelings and ghostly activity in your neighborhood. Originally created in 1990 as a way to miniaturize the gargantuan slime blower. Andrew Gant built this version that GBNJ employees. Like most things Andrew builds he found a way to somehow make it heaver than the original slime blower while maintaining the smaller profile.
