a) EMP/ECM devices
b) low tech disguises
c) weapons disguised as other normal items
d) normal items disguised as weapons (sowing confusion and doubt)
e) encryption
f) optical camouflage technologies
g) holograms
h) DOS attacks on video servers
i) IP spoofing of video servers and cameras
j) baseball bats
k) diagonal cutters
l) autonomous crime agents

sow propaganda of suspicion about the system, and denigrate the
integrity of the system, and the popultion will dismantle the system for
you. Put out enough autonomous agents of your own that are built to
bollux up the system, and the system will be degraded to the point of
uselessness. This is pretty basic stuff, right out of standard SpecWar
and/or ChiCom insurgency manuals.... tho updated for the new technology.
The tactics of warfare never change, only the weapons and the targets.
