Terminal Entry

[LOG_RECEIVE] Terminal Entry MM-04

[LOG_RECEIVE] Survivors gravitate toward any technology they're offered.

[LOG_RECEIVE] Doubly so when that tech helps keep them alive.

[LOG_RECEIVE] And triply so when that tech lets them dominate those without it. Classic arms-race thinking.

Overview[edit | edit source]

The Tek Shoulder Cannon can be equipped as a shield and powered by Element. The Tek Shoulder Cannon can be configured to have different fire patterns such as normal, rapid, and sniper and will protect the survivor from threats.

Similar to a turret, the Tek Shoulder Cannon can be set up to automatically fire at its intended target.

The Tek Shoulder Cannon can be configured, and that configuration will stay even after unequipping. All of these firing modes have tradeoffs.

  • Standard: Standard fire has a wide target scan with a medium range shot, less likely to hit target at longer range. Reloads after every shot.
  • Rapid: Rapid fire has a massive target scan with with low range shots. Shoots multiple projectiles at a rapid pace, but will overheat quickly.
  • Sniper: Sniper fire has a narrow target scan with a very long range shot. Has the fastest projectile shot like Tek Railgun, but has a very long reload.
