Polarity Wire

This gauntlet houses coiled wire tipped with a sturdy needle. When triggered, the gauntlet launches the needle toward a target, channeling a deadly shock along the wire a split second later. After this, the gauntlet rapidly recoils the tethered needle in preparation for additional attacks. Due to the weapon’s design, a polarity wire can’t attack targets beyond its first range increment.

Shock Weapons

Shock weapons emit powerful electrical blasts that can damage and potentially stun enemies. Ranged versions use a low-power laser to direct these weapons’ electrical arcs. Electrical blasts can also leap to adjacent targets, making the weapons well suited for stunning groups of enemies. In general, tempest shock weapons are the most powerful, followed in descending order by storm, aurora, and static shock weapons.
