¿Qué podría ser mejor que un subfusil? ¡Un subfusil que dispara BALAS ELÉCTRICAS! Los chicos de I+D han revestido las tripas de una Subata 312 estándar con un prototipo ArcGen, lo que permite que genere una tormenta eléctrica de MUERTE. Aviso: mantener lejos del agua.
~ Descripción del arma


The "Stubby" Voltaic SMG is the Engineer's alternate primary weapon. Fitting to its nickname, it is a short and stout submachine gun which has had an electrical generator wired into its firing mechanisms. A node on the side of the gun lights up and powers down whenever there is a magazine inserted or removed into the gun respectively. For some reason, the Engineer never makes use of the massive foregrip on the weapon, despite the fact it would help to dampen recoil.

As with most submachine guns in first-person shooter games, the Stubby has a high firing rate and good combat maneuverability but suffers with damage and range. In terms of firing speed it is faster than the Scout's Deepcore GK2 but slower than the Gunner's Powered Minigun. The high fire rate makes up for the below-average damage, as this weapon can easily take care of enemies up close by aiming for their weak points. Anything from Grunts to Praetorians will melt under this gun's concentrated fire.

What makes the gun truly special is its electrical features; by default every shot fired has a one-in-five chance to electrocute the target, damaging them over time while also slowing their movement. Slowed targets are obviously easier to hit, making this weapon good at shutting down fast moving foes. Although the chance to electrocute a target sounds low, consider that this 20% chance is happening with every shot, and with how many bullets are coming out of the Stubby, the chance to shock a target is much higher than one may think.

The biggest flaw the Stubby has is its low effective range, being on par with the Driller's primary weapons – potentially even worse, as the bullets have a large spread pattern when firing for long durations. Tap-firing with the weapon is a poor idea as the gun's recoil is strong, meaning that each tap will cause the gun to kick harshly upwards. As such this weapon is only effective within close range and has little to no effect outside of close-quarters-combat. Getting up close to enemies might sound dangerous, but the Stubby is more than capable of dealing with all but the toughest foes in the hands of a capable user.

Mods exclusivos[]

Conductive Bullets[]

Icon Upgrade Electricity.png

Conductive Bullets allows the weapon to deal an additional +30% physical damage to enemies that are under an electrical field. Electric damage does not benefit from this bonus.

Arco eléctrico[]

Icon Upgrade Electricity.png

Electric Arc causes each bullet fired out of the Stubby to have a % chance to proc a chain lightning effect. It will apply the Electrocution effect from the Stubby to every target hit within the chain. The Arc effect can only be activated if the same bullet fired has proceeded its initial electrocution effect. Meaning the % chance to apply the Arc effect is not 25%, but 25% of the Electrocution chance. (e.g. 20% Electrocution chance = 5% Electric Arc chance)
