Background[edit | edit source]
An incident involving the infected at one of HERC's outposts resulted in the creation of this weapon when one of the operatives waged a highly successful battle against the escaped infected and credited his success to a new advanced electrical attack device that delivers high-voltage electrical lightning-like bolt attack that shocks and fries anything it touches.
Laboratory demonstrations are a poor substitute for actual field reports so HERC has issued it to their newly recruited operatives if the necessary parts can be found.
How to obtain[edit | edit source]

Tactics[edit | edit source]
Possessing a decent reach, high knockback, and fast attack speed, the Arc-Burn nevertheless suffers from a high move speed penalty and a low damage per strike, making it a poor choice against hordes of zombies. It is best used with other weapons that can counteract the Arc-Burn's poor stats.
Recommended gear[edit | edit source]
- Vests to increase the wielder's health, allowing them to last longer in the horde. Some variants also boost the damage done by the weapon.
- Shoes help to mitigate the movement penalty.
