Introduction

The Shocktrain is a mid-range (up to 500 meters) medium energy weapon.

Strategy

This energy weapon, upon firing, will unleash all charges that are currently stored in the weapon (a maximum of 7), with damage increasing for more charges being loaded. This mechanism is similar to the Trebuchet, because this weapon can charge while not firing, thus increasing the damage the longer you wait after firing. Also, it is similar to the Zeus due to requiring a target lock.

The Shocktrain has the unique ability that allows it to hit multiple robots, in succession (chain). When the original target is hit, each robot within 100 meters of the target will also be hit with that same projectile, but with 50% less damage for each subsequent robot. Stealthed robots will not get hit by the chain effect.

Due to high burst damage, it makes this weapon very dangerous to robots grouped together, which increases the overall damage of each shot. This, combined with its short reload time, can put a large dent in a group medium or heavy robots.

It isn't uncommon to see this weapon mounted on the Spectre or Bulgasari. They can use their Descend and Dash abilities respectively to get in and out of the range of targets. The Bulgasari has three hardpoints positioned high and to the right side, allowing it to shoot over and around cover, from up to 500 meters away, while the Spectre has the advantage of being able to use 4 of them.
