CS gas can be used to disperse rioters.
However, as the vapour drifts, it can affect non-rioters
in the vicinity, who are either keeping their heads down,
or just looking for a chance to get away.
The answer may be found in the BorgCo multimode
Available in flail-release
hand-thrown or 38mm/40mm
format for ARWEN type dischargers, the grenade has a
two-part construction. On initiation, a low-yield
pyrotechnic charge disperses 50% of the payload over a
10 metre area. This portion consists of a mixture of
capsaicin (causing irritation to mucous membranes), a
stenching agent which closely resembles the smell of
sewage and decaying meat (promoting vomiting), and
SmartWater, indelibly marking anyone nearby for later
A smoke generator portion also fires, releasing a dense
cloud of a moderate tear-smoke compound mixed with
THC as a mild incapacitant.
The quadruple-whammy of stinky sewage, hot pepper,
tearsmoke and the slight intoxication produced by a
small dose of THC should be enough to persuade those
involved that being somewhere else is probably a good
idea; prolonged exposure will of course render the target
incapable of putting up any serious resistance.
The unpleasantness of the other ingredients ensures that
the temptation to have a riot just to get a free high at
the public expense is minimised.

compounds in one location, rather than a large amount of a

||For starters where you want to place your smoke canisters has no relation to where you want a very localised flashbang effect. So "multimode" is pointless.
