Special Weapon Effects

Today, a new emperor must seize the throne. – Alternate firing mode fires an incendiary taser that ignites enemies and heals the character. All parts are fixed with guaranteed double magazine and melee accessory.

Usage & Description

The Leech can pass as a purple rarity Vladof pistol with its stats and healing ability. Despite its guaranteed elemental capacitor, the bullets only deal non-elemental damage; only the taser is incendiary. It can be effective for a few story missions after it is obtained due to the number of flesh enemies the character will encounter.


  • As with other taser underbarrel weapons, it benefits from Moze's Redistribution skill. If shot on critical spots, it can achieve an excessive amount of critical hits, and if aimed near targets, it can affect an entire group of enemies.
  • If Moze's Cloud of Lead skill is active, the taser can be fired multiple times to increase its healing ability.


  • The flavor text is a quote from the 1982 film The Dark Crystal. The quote is said by the narrator in the opening of the movie.
