There are many uses for the wrist console panel, such as changing vision modes, firing the Plasma Caster, or accessing the Sat-com; but its final use comes when the hunter is mortally wounded or inescapably trapped -- the self-destruct mechanism. This weapon of last resort is used by warriors both as a method to perform honourable suicide to keep their honor in death, and also remove any evidence of their existence. After the device has been set, decreasing numerals on the wrist console serve as a warning that the bomb is about to explode. There is a short countdown until the detonation of a micro-nuclear explosion, destroying an area equivalent to 300 city blocks. A similar device is also found on Predator spacecraft, again due to their custom of self-destruction rather than capture.
