Usage & Description
The Destructo Spinner takes full advantage of Maliwan's dual-element capacity by firing both of its listed elements at once. While this does provide a fair amount of versatility, it can also be a hindrance if one of the elements is not ideal for the fight. For this reason, certain elemental combinations are ideal, such as:
Incendiary and shock. This combination can deal with the vast majority of enemies, so long as they are not armored.
Shock and radiation. These elements deal bonus damage to shields, allowing them to tear through shielded enemies.
Corrosive and cryo. These elements deal bonus damage to armor and will make quick work of armored enemies.
Cryo and radiation. These two "utility" elements are useful for crowd control. They also happen to cover each other's weaknesses.
- Projectiles of different elemental types corkscrew in opposite directions.
- The name and flavor text are a reference to the song Destructo Spin by prog-rock band Between the Buried and Me.
