Ready Or Not is one of the newest tactical first-person shooter that came out on early access and is also getting some high praises from its player base so far. Players take the role of Special Weapons and Tactics officers whose job is to diffuse hostile and dangerous situations in strategic ways.

Of course, it’s part of the job (and the title) to work with special equipment and devices to get the task done efficiently with as little to no casualties – at least not for the bad guys. So in this article, we’ll take a look at the different kinds of special arsenal you, as an operator, can use in missions. Firearms will be listed on a separate article.

All Tactical Equipment in Ready Or Not (a.k.a. Long Tactical)

How to get the Rescue Shield in Ready Or Not?

Apparently, the Rescue Shield that shows up in the loadout is the shield that is included in the Supporter Edition of the game. In it, the shield was tagged as the FBI “Defender” Tactical Shield under the FBI HRT Pack, HRT stands for Hostage Rescue Team. You can get the Supporter Edition as a DLC purchase.

In Ready or Not, Grenades and Tactical Devices are often some of the most important tools you can bring with you on a mission. Your chances of survival and success in a mission depend on how well you use the tools you have at your disposal during the course of the mission.

All Tactical Devices in Ready or Not

Tactical Devices are typically deployed as countermeasures to the difficulties that you may encounter while on a mission.

Pepper Spray

A can of irritant used to incapacitate an individual when sprayed on the face or the chest.

All Grenades in Ready or Not

Use grenades when going on the offensive in order to neutralize hostile targets, which is usually accomplished through debilitation and disorientation.

Grenades - Ready or Not


A grenade used to blind and disorient individuals caught in its blast.

CS Gas

More commonly known as tear gas, it’s used to fill a small area with an irritant, causing nearby individuals to have difficulty breathing and blurred vision.

Stinger Grenade

A non-lethal version of a frag grenade, it uses tiny rubber balls to hit individuals in a small area to stun or disorient them.

An operator can only carry a single kind of item per category, so make sure that you and your teammates have varied loadouts and are geared up based on the roles that you’ll be taking on during the missions. Using these equipment during the right moment and in the right places will increase your chances of completing the mission with a high score.
