Vandergraffen is a unique laser manufactured by Tediore. It can be obtained as a guaranteed drop from Deadlift.

Special Weapon Effects

I'm a fan of the flow. – Always shock element. Increased elemental effect chance. When moving, a flashing animated effect covers the entire weapon surface.

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.

Athena players who plan to focus on the Ceraunic Storm skill tree can use the Vandergraffen as a handy starting weapon for gaining Maelstrom stacks.

Notes

  • 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.

Trivia

  • 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.
