Introduction

The Calamity is a close to mid-range (up to 600 meters) heavy energy weapon.

Strategy

The Calamity is the heavy electric beam weapon version of the light Spark and medium Scourge.

The Calamity is essentially a large mid-range taser that locks onto a target and fires an electrical arc that sticks to a single target and does continuous damage as long as you remain locked-on. It has to empty its clip in order to reload, meaning this weapon must be fully discharged while locked onto a target before reloading.

The Calamity has the special ability to inflict more damage the closer it is to the target so it works well for both mid- and close-ranged engagement. It's similar to the Zeus but with a much longer discharge and a decrease in damage the further away the target is. The weapon is best used for sustained DPS and for hitting fast, agile bots.

More optimal choices for close-in engagement include Redeemer and Ember, but the Calamity's extra range allows much more versatile attacks and adaptability to most situations.

Pros and Cons

Pros

  • Energy attribute allows it to penetrate energy barriers
  • Lock-on attribute makes it extremely hard to miss
  • Critical damage at close range (300 meters or less)
  • 600-meter maximum range allows mid-range combat
  • Extremely good at sustained combat

Cons

  • Ineffective against physical shields
  • Damage is barely noticeable at range
  • Needs to empty entire clip in order to reload
