Tesla Stream Mech Arm
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.
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.
