Usage & Description

The Redistributor is an effective weapon against shielded enemies and mobs with its chaining shot effect and shock element.


  • 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.
