Unique Modifications[edit | edit source]

Overcharged Rounds[edit | edit source]

Icon Upgrade Electricity.png

Overcharged Rounds causes each bullet fired out of the Stubby to do an additional '2' electric damage. The electric damage is affected by damage modifiers, such as Weakpoint Damage.


Electric Arc[edit | edit source]

Icon Upgrade Electricity.png

Electric Arc causes each bullet fired out of the Stubby to have a % chance to proc a chain lightning effect. It will apply the Electrocution effect from the Stubby to every target hit within the chain. The Arc effect can only be activated if the same bullet fired has procced its initial electrocution effect. Meaning the % chance to apply the Arc effect is not 25%, but 25% of the Electrocution chance. (e.g. 10% Electrocution chance = 2.5% Electric Arc chance)


Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • Despite featuring a second handle, the Engineer never holds onto it, even though it could significantly reduce recoil.
