Advantages & Disadvantages[edit | edit source]

Advantages[edit | edit source]

  • Electrical damage bypasses AV and DV, making the mutation useful for killing well armored or evasive targets.
  • Electricity will arc through multiple enemies, allowing for decent multi-target damage.
  • At higher levels, gives an option for quick burst damage.

Disadvantages[edit | edit source]

  • Has terrible synergy with Electromagnetic Impulse.
  • All charges must be used at the same time.
  • While the recharge time is reduced at higher levels, it is not affected by Willpower.
