"The Shocklance fires a highly powerful beam of concentrated energy consumed from your armor. Hits to the back deal bonus damage. It also deals massive damage to vehicles."

The Shocklance is an unlockable short range weapon available to Light Armors. The Shocklance has a very short range, but can deal a significant amount of damage for a weapon that only requires 50 energy to use.

Damage Table

Below are the damage values for the Shocklance. If a player shoots someone in the back with the Shocklance, it does 2x the damage. Damage is calculated as 5 damage per energy consumed, 500 damage at max. The Shocklance pulls 50 energy, if 50 energy isn’t available the remaining energy is drained and damage is scaled.
