Usage & Description
The Vandergraffen is typically the first beam laser players will encounter in a new playthrough. Apart from its higher elemental chance, it has no significant features, and can be used in the same way as a standard Tediore shock laser until a suitable replacement is found.
- 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.
