Tesla Stream Mech Arm is a arm part mech component which can be crafted using salvaged materials found in space encounters. The crafting recipe has a chance to be learned after finding an Experimental Mech Blueprint.

This arm component can be equipped on either or both mech arm slots.

Once learned it can be assembled using a Mech Part Crafting Table and equipped using a Mech Assembly Station.

While equipped, the player can use the Tesla Stream Mech Arm while piloting their mech to, after a 0.3-second windup, fire an electric bolt every 0.12 seconds which deals deals 32 electric damage and extremely weak directional knockback, producing a fire rate of ~8.33 bolts per second and a direct-damage DPS of ~267.

In addition, electric bolts inflict the Overload status effect on enemies they hit:

  • Overload deals 50% of charge as defense-ignoring electric damage every 0.5 seconds to the victim.
  • The initial hit that inflicts the effect sets charge to 5; maximum charge is 50.
  • Electric bolts that hit the victim add 2 charge each; charge decays by 5 per second, ending the status effect if charge is brought below 0.

A single Tesla Stream Mech Arm will take approximately 4 seconds of continuous fire (with all bolts hitting the same enemy) to build up Overload's damage over time to its maximum DPS of 50; using two Tesla Stream Mech Arms at once will halve the required time to approximately 2 seconds.
