Special Weapon Effects
Feel like I'm gonna break this damn thing! – Always shock. Reduced damage. Fires bolts of lightning with perfect (100.0) accuracy when not sprinting. Reloads in a break-action manner similar to common-quality Jakobs pistols.
Usage & Description
The Cyber Eagle is unique in the fact that it is one of the few Jakobs weapons that are guaranteed to spawn with an elemental capacitor. It also has perfect accuracy when standing still or walking, along with reverse recoil while sprinting, making it a good weapon to deplete enemy shields while in heated combat. Despite having 100.0 accuracy listed, the projectiles do not land in the exact center of where it is aimed and will noticeably deviate from the center of the reticle.
- The Cyber Eagle is one of the few Jakobs weapons that spawns with an elemental capacitor.
- The Cyber Eagle spawns with all parts fixed, including Jakobs barrel, grip, and sight and Shock element.
- The weapon's effect and flavor text are references to "The Noisy Cricket" (Jay's first alien gun) from the movie "Men in Black". The same reference is made on Eridian Lightning from the original Borderlands.
- The weapon's full title in the game files is "Zarpedon's Cyber Eagle;" "Zarpedon's" is treated as a prefix by the game engine. However, "Zarpedon's" can never be replaced with another prefix because all parts are fixed.
