The DRAK-25 is among the newest additions to the DRG arsenal and is a bit of a technological marvel. Capable of laying down a blistering hail of superheated plasma without hardly ever blowing up in your hands, and comparatively cheap to manufacture, management were quick to approve and sign off this design.

— Item Description

The DRAK-25 Plasma Carbine is an unlockable primary weapon for the Scout. It is a somewhat retro futuristic carbine with the stock being incorporated into the handle and attached to the magazine. The barrel and muzzle both feature distinctly different colors compared to the rest of the gun and are much more circular than the rest of the weapon.

The Plasma Carbine, similar to Gunner's "Lead Storm" Powered Minigun and Driller's Experimental Plasma Charger, feeds from a single ammo pool and has an overheating mechanic. In addition, the plasma fired by the weapon is considered a projectile, meaning that it must physically travel through the world before hitting a target.

When firing the Plasma Carbine, each shot will produce heat which is measured on the weapon's digital display. After firing for an extended period of time and completely filling the heat meter, the Plasma Carbine will jam, rendering the weapon inoperable for the overheat duration.

Modifications[]

There are five tiers of modifications and each tier has two to three upgrades. Only one modification can be equipped per tier.

By rewiring the thermal systems into a secondary cell and connecting it to the primary battery, your weapon can convert the energy from overheating into ammo. However this reduces the maximum capacity of the primary battery significantly.

Directional vents burn everything around you and send enemies running when the weapon overheats. It also reduces the overheat recovery time. Unfortunately the battery size has to be reduced and the passive cooling suffers as well.

Plugging your shield directly into the weapon battery boosts the plasma feed and density significantly while at full shield and improves total ammo and rate of fire at all times. However the extra energy generates more heat and overheating the weapon will short circuit your shield.

Feeding the thermal exhaust back into the system transfers the heat generated after a 50% threshold to the plasma, making it increasingly hot. The modifications means more heat generated and it takes longer to get rid of during overheat.

Stats breakdown[]

Understanding the Weapon[]

  • Battery Capacity is the weapon's total ammo capacity.
  • Overheat Duration is the amount of time in seconds that the weapon becomes inoperable when the heat meter is completely filled.
  • Cooldown Delay is how long you need to wait in seconds before the weapon's heat meter begins to cool down.
    • Heat Generated per Shot: 0.045
    • Maximum Heat Capacity: 2
  • The heat-percentage bar on the gun is non-linear. It takes 18 shots to reach "50% heat", and 45 to reach 100%.

Unique Modifications[]

Hot Feet

  • Speed boost last for the entire overheat duration, plus an additional ~2s. Thus, the longer the overheat duration, the longer the speed boost.

Plasma Splash

  • Damage type: ?

Manual Heat Dump

  • Manually overheating provides a significant reduction in overheat duration. Thus, its much faster to dump the heat by manually overheating at 99% heat, rather than automatically at 100% (~40% less overheat time).

Unique Overclocks[]

  • Impact Deflection
    • The bounce angle depends on the surface angle, like the reflection of a beam of light.
    • If the "Plasma Splash" mod is equipped, the projectile deals splash damage when bouncing off terrain; making it possible to deal x2 splash if you shoot the floor infront of enemies (splashing on contact with floor, then bouncing into the enemy, dealing direct + splash damage again).
  • Overtuned Particle Accelerator
  • Rewiring Mod
    • Rewiring Mod will refill ~31.5 shots given a full overheat of 45 shots, 70% of ammunition used. This means a full 45-shot overheat will only consume ~13.5 shots.
    • Using "Manual Heat Dump" to overheat early mod will refill around 47-70% of ammunition used. A minimum of 18 shots are needed to reach "50% heat" to manually overheat, and consumes ~9.5 shots (only refilling 47.2% of the 18 used).
  • Shield Battery Booster
    • Increases direct damage by 5.5, and projectile speed by ???% when at full shields.
  • Thermal Liquid Coolant
  • Thermal Exhaust Feedback
  • Aggressive Venting
  • Name Unknown (name not present in game file for this overclock)

Mastery[]

Each modification that is purchased advances a mastery bar by one unit.

Mastery unlocks:

  • Three modifications – First Stripe Weapon Paintjob Icon Skin First Stripe.png
  • Seven modifications – Deepcore Weapon Paintjob Icon Skin Deepcore.png
  • All (13) modifications – The Company Special Weapon Paintjob Icon Skin The Company Special.png
