A prosthetic arm is an artificial body part that acts as a replacement for a pawn's natural arm. The least advanced of the arm replacements, prosthetic arms have a part efficiency of 50%, therefore one prosthetic arm and one healthy natural arm provides 75% manipulation, while having two prosthetic arms provides 50% manipulation.

Acquisition

Prosthetic arms can be crafted at a Machining table once the Prosthetics research project has been completed. They require Steel.png 40 Steel, Component.png 4 Component, 15,000 ticks (4.17 mins) of work, and a Crafting of 5.

They can also sometimes be purchased from traders.

Summary

Prosthetic arms replace the user's organic arm up to, and including, the shoulder. They are universal and can be installed on either the left or right. The prosthetic arm has a part efficiency of 50%. This partially replaces the functionality of a normal arm - when coupled with the arm body part having a Manipulation importance of 50%, it results in restoring 25% manipulation per missing arm replaced, or a loss of 25% when replacing a healthy arm. Manipulation, in turn, affects a great many stats. For a full list of affected stats, see Manipulation.

A prosthetic arm also replaces the natural "Fist" attack all Humans have with an completely identical punch.
