Introduction

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

Strategy

This energy weapon is essentially a large mid-range taser, locking onto a target and firing an electrical arc that sticks to them 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 is a heavy version of Scourge and Spark.

The Calamity has the special ability to inflict more damage the closer it is to the target. Due to this it can work for both mid and close ranged encounters. It's similar to the Zeus, but with a much longer discharge and a decrease in damage the further away the target is.

It can be effectively mounted on bot that have multiple heavy hardpoints, as multiple Calamities can deal large amounts of damage at medium ranges.

Robots that excel at sustained fights, such as the Falcon, Bulwark, and the Raijin can make very good use of this weapon, as it provides better sustained damage as opposed to the burst damage of the Zeus, as well as having the option to become a brawler at will.
