Notes[edit | edit source]

  • A colorless version of this item can be good with the mutation "Vengeance", which scales with Brutality.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • The weapon and quote in the description are a reference to Star Wars. In particular, it references the character Darth Sidious, who is infamous for his prolific use of Force Lightning.
    • The fact that the weapon damages the player after prolonged use may reference how Darth Sidious permanently scarred himself with his lightning when he used it to fight Mace Windu in Star Wars: Episode III - Revenge of the Sith.
