Usage & Description


  • The unique barrel of the Vandergraffen visually resembles the standard Maliwan beam laser barrel.
  • It has the same visual effect as the Commerce.
  • Vandergraffen can spawn with any grip, stock, or sight. Its prefix will always be Alternating.


  • The name is a reference Robert Van de Graaff and his generator.
  • Vandergraffen's constant prefix Alternating is a reference to alternating current (AC), a type of flow of electric current. The flavor text "I'm a fan of the flow." is also a reference to electric current.
