      Best weapon in game. Versatile, useful, no ammo cost, and a quick recharge. It does 10 dmg, which is nothing, but it makes any rig operator's day easier.

        this can be immediately detonated once its stuck to something by hitting fire again. this makes it much more flexible for timing your stun strikes.

        also im not sure if its a bug or a feature but if you time it right and detonate it almost exactly as it hits the enemy they can take a double dose of the electric damage and get auto stunned. could also be related to hitting an enemy unaware of you?

        either way im guessing its a bug but it happens regularly enough.

          This one is a "game breaker", use no ammo (is free), can stun almost everything (even bosses), has quick cooldown (you can use 2, 3 times while facing a normal enemy), you can detonate it whenever you want (can be used as panic button to "escape" groups), you can shoot it while attacking or taking damage or using health items. AND you get it 5 or less hour into the game. -You can use it while attacking an enemy and stagger them to death (can stun groups, so no one can interrupt you facing the strong enemy). -Can push enemies from ledges. -Does damage, so is even capable to destroy turrets and little mechanical enemies. What you say? you want to combine it with" implants" and "buff from armor sets" as: more drone damage, more elemental damage?. WHAT? More abuse?: Use a weapon with electricity damage and fry every enemy in the game. ----------------------------------------------------------------- Guess what drone module I'm not using in NG+. Have fun and remember the game has an easy mode : D
