Haw haw: Static-charged balloon foils security camera


Ah, William Lawson of Brooklyn, New York, you are a smart guy. I can only hope that your balloon trick shows up in future iterations of the Splinter Cell series. I’m getting tired of shooting the cameras out with a pistol. It wastes bullets, it’s dangerous, and it’s impractical for Sam Fisher to have to poke his head out just to aim at a target he could very easily disable with a little bit of static electricity. Perhaps he can start to carry a bag of balloons, string, and a large helium tank with him wherever he goes.
