Special Weapon Effects

Man's reach exceeds his imagination. – Chains shots to nearby enemies. Every 7th shot is amped.

Usage & Description

The Redistributor is an effective weapon for crowd control as the chained shots can weaken enemies that the character hasn't engaged yet but are in the vicinity.


  • The amped shot effect is not tied to the magazine size. If the 7th shot is the first shot in a new magazine, the effect will be triggered.


  • The flavor text is a reference to the quote "Man's reach exceeds his grasp" said by Nikola Tesla from the 2006 movie The Prestige.
