The Pulsar is a 2-star handgun.
A high-tech Gremlin firearm designed for use by elite squads of Ironclaw soldiers. Pulsar shots become more powerful the farther they travel.
Fires a very slow moving energy pellet that has a range of 9 squares.
About halfway along the shot (4.5 squares), the pellet expands and explodes on contact, damaging nearby enemies and dealing knockback.
The user may fire up to three energy pellets per reload and move at approximately half speed while firing.
A single expanded pellet that explodes on contact, damaging nearby enemies and dealing knockback.
This attack has the same bullet speed & range as the basic attack but the recoil from the shot will push the user back 2/3 of a square.
Below table shows the approximate charge time in milliseconds:
Single clicking the "Fire" button and charging the pulsar a fraction and then releasing and repeating the process produces a stream of bullets without the reloading.
The following damage values represent the weapon at its completed level, without any UV or bonus from other equipment, and listed as a range found from the first to last floor of each stratum.
