Special Weapon Effects

You planning a follow-up? – Always shock. Alternate firing mode cycles between an energy orb and an energy bolt. When hip-fired, it shoots a slow-moving energy ball. When zoomed-in, it shoots a fast-moving energy bolt.

Usage & Description

  • The energy ball can be detonated with the energy bolt, exploding and damaging enemies in a fairly large area around it.
  • The projectiles can be switched with Alternative Fire mode although this is slower than zooming in or out.


  • The name ASMD is derived from the ASMD weapon in 1998's Unreal, the acronym itself coming from the partial phrase, "...and suck my dick." from the movie Fear of a Black Hat.
    • The weapon's projectiles are also from the Unreal series, specifically the Shock Rifle, which is also a dual-mode weapon (The aforementioned combination is known as the "Shock Combo" by Unreal enthusiasts)
