Alien Appendage is a Tier 6 Unique Weapon. Mechanically, each appendage most closely resembles a boomerang weapon, but the design is modified so drastically as to be almost unrecognisable.

The design was submitted by a solarium tier pre-order backer, who was granted the ability to design a weapon to be included in the game.

The weapon's long description reads as follows: "A horrifying hybrid of flesh and steel."

It extends a series of long metal tentacles when fired. These tentacles will extend toward wherever the cursor is, pushing back and damaging any enemies they come into contact with. They also can inflict paralysis on enemies, freezing them in place briefly.

The Alien Appendage has a base damage per second of 6.25, a fire rate of 2 shots per second and an energy consumption per second of 37.5. There is also a limit of 4 projectiles acting simultaneously. After accounting for damage bonuses given by the weapon's tier (in this case, tier 6 gives it a 3.5x multiplier to base DPS), weapon DPS increases to 21.875, resulting in a damage per shot of 10.9375 (approx. 10.9) and an energy consumption per shot of 18.75 (approx. 18.8).

The Alien Appendage is a 1-handed weapon, so it can be dual-wielded if you find two of them.
