Is mustard gas allowed in games?

  1. What do you want to achieve? Keep it simple and clear!
    I want to know if I can use a specific chemical in my combat game.

  2. What is the issue? Include enough details if possible!
    I was wondering if using mustard gas in my game would be bannable for referencing world events. I’m planning to add other things like tear gas and more chemical bombs as well.

  3. What solutions have you thought of so far?
    I was looking on other games and I don’t think it is bannable but I’m just making sure.


Using mustard gas is, well, considered a warcrime. Just mentioning it might not be that bad or if you’re just trying to immitate it. Just be careful about graphic content. Like instead of people fainting from it you should just keep it like a standard damaging effect. If you’re still unsure, it is better to be safe than sorry.


I think it’s unlikely to cause you specific moderation issues, however it is totally dependant on context.

If you’re using a chamber with gas, that is obviously totally unacceptable, whilst most people think smoke grenades are fine. Where we draw the line is a bit arbitrary but I don’t know of any Roblox game moderated for tear gas (of course, may be wrong here). Roblox take intent into account so even if you do accidentally do something that crosses their threshold then it is unlikely they will enact any permanent action on your game or account.

Mustard gas in particular isn’t used in civilian terms, and is a chemical weapon though - it goes further towards the line than say, tear gas might. My advice would be making it so people don’t die, just to be safe.

I am myself hoping to implement tear gas and flash bangs into my game, which will both add a disorientation effect.
