    Effective weapon

    What do you think is the best tool / weapon that someone can use to neutralize a Vampire without taking much risk?

    I've always been a fan of "poisoning" the food supply. Hemotoxins or circulatory diseases, holy symbols handed out as party favors, holy water in the Songkran super soakers, a renewal or expansion of Devil's Night, the identification of a "new pandemic" whose symptoms are eerily similar to the old "myths" of vampirism along with news reports on how to identify a carrier of the disease...

    Dust explosions. They can be setup relatively easily using things like sugar or flour. They are also well documented and very used in the movie industry, so you can easily research how to control the potential damage. Add a remote or timed spark to avoid being in the same room as the target and you are good to go.

    Not sure on necroed threads in other sections, but we're going through a drought here on 2e news so I don't mind it.

    This is the only gameline I play

    What's up with the recent wave of necroed threads?
    As for your post specifically, staking is difficult (requiring a heavily penalised attack roll and tons of successes to deal enough damage) and the lamp thing simply doesn't work.

    I can save your character a ton of work and tell you this: Stake the bloody hemophage and use battery-powered full spectrum sunlamps to cook the fanghead whilst he twitches from from having the mother of all splinters embedded in his chest.

    Vampires had to take a frenzy check if someone lit a flashlight in their face in VtR 1E so a UV flashbang seems quite likely.

    Task Force: Valkyrie has an UV grenade that can send vampires into a fear frenzy, but doesn't actually hurt them. I'd tread any other artificial sunlight this way. It can't hurt a vampire, but a strong and sudden enough blast can send them into a frenzy.

    The weakness is mystical so it requires the actual sun or a supernatural representation that can create sunlight (such as a Helion). Just UV light does nothing to a vampire. Not even a tan unless the vampire is using Blush of Life.

    Edit: At least in VtR. I just realized Hunter has different rules for dealing with supernaturals that I haven't read up on.

    I don't play in a Hunter game, but in our Changeling game we saw a Hunter take down a Vampire with the UV headlamp on his motorcycle. Don't know if that is something you can normally do or something our Storyteller just made up.

    Raistlin, happy coincidence actually.

    Although that does bring up Hunters who know a little about how Vampire Society works. In those cases this might be the most effective way of actually eliminating them, cause the Vampires to start killing each other.

Then just wait until they get so frustrated with being followed and talked about that they either leave town or willingly enter Torpor. Then just stake them when they sleep and drag them out into the sun.
    Or until the Prince decides such vampire is too much of a risk and sends the Sheriff to do the work for you.

    A small car bomb? I mean it will pose very little risk to your character immediately, but the authorities will be very interested

    How much risk is too much? You probably want something ranged and incendiary, but the main thing to remember is that vampires are smart too. If you start picking them off from a distance they're going to change their movements and behavior to make that more difficult, and will probably start trying to find you and attack you from a similarly safe distance. Risk is relative.
