The heavy charge blaster is an mechanoid-only ranged weapon. It is the main armament of the centipede blaster.

This weapon cannot be independently obtained in normal play. It is provided here for comparisons sake.

Acquisition[edit]

Heavy charge blasters spawn on all centipede blasters, including those gestated by a colony. However, it is not possible to obtain it directly in normal play. Pawns carrying it will not drop it on death, downing, or complete loss of manipulation like other weapons. It can be spawned in by the Debug actions menu but, like all unobtainable weapons, will disappear after being dropped.

Summary[edit]

Analysis[edit]

Like the Minigun, it is an excellent crowd control weapon, dealing heavy damage against groups of targets, but its low accuracy makes it less effective against scattered or individual targets. With 90% of the range of a minigun, the Heavy charge blaster does 50% more damage per hit with 50% better Armor penetration. A fearsome weapon!

    Version history[edit]

    • Beta 19 - no longer has a forced miss radius allowing it to hit single targets, but in turn received an accuracy penalty. It also received a damage buff.
    • 1.4.3523 - New weaponTag added to uniquely identify it for use by a specific centipede variant.
