Freeze-bombs

As the name suggests, these weapons freeze everything within 50 metres of the explosion.
The effect last exactly 15 minutes.

They can be really fun if you time them well.

A freeze-bomb explodes 2 seconds after its been thrown. So try time it just as someone is pouring a glass of water or about to jump into a pool. When the freeze effects wear off it can be really funny.

Freeze-bombs might look simple, but they are actually highly sophisticated devices. They don’t actually involve temperature in any way. Rather they generate F-waves, which are a kind of radio-electromagnetic-micro-vector-wave-multiplier. When activated, the F-waves interact with localalized atmospheric conditions to produce what scientists call the Photo-Stop-Effect. Everything freezes as if it’s in a photograph. Otherwise described as an IPGE (Involuntary Pause-Game Effect).

The effect lasts exactly 15 minutes and is not at all dangerous in itself. Obviously it can result in a dangerous situation, so for example if you ware watching a woman juggle with fire-sticks, and then you throw a freeze-bomb, it’s not guaranteed to she’ll catch the fire-sticks once she unfreezes.

If the pins of two freeze bombs are pulled out simultaneously, the effect will last for 30 minutes (i.e. 2 x 15). The same goes for up to 12 freeze-bombs, i.e. the maximum freeze time due to simultaneous freeze-bomb activation is 180 minutes (i.e. 12 x 15), which is 3 hours (i.e. 180/60 = 3).
