Notes[edit | edit source]
- Resource-heavy to craft, requiring 8 Fieldron and 3 Argon Crystals, as well as 9000 Ferrite.
- The Amprex fires a single beam of electricity which then chains to nearby enemies.
- The beam will chain to the closest living enemy in range dealing half damage to it. From there it will chain additional times (3 to 4 times total), halving the damage each time.
- Headshotting the original target does not affect damage from chain lighting.
- Chain lightning will also be emitted if an enemies corpse is chosen as the original target.
- Additional electrical arcs are also emitted, striking randomly around the player. However, these stray arcs are purely visual in effect.
Trivia[edit | edit source]
- After the clan obtains the Energy Lab, it will take exactly 12 days to research this weapon.
- The Amprex's name is a portmanteau of the words Ampere (the base unit of the International System of Units used to quantify electric current) and the word Rex, which is the Latin word for king.
- The word ampere itself is named after a French mathematician and physicist, André-Marie Ampère, who's also considered to be one of the fathers of classical electromagnetism, most commonly known for Ampère's Circuital Law.
- Like the Flux Rifle and Detron, Amprex does not conform to the common Corpus weapon name scheme; two syllables ending in 'a'.
- The weapon shares its similarities on its battery components with Tetra.
- This is the third Primary weapon that deals purely Electricity damage, after the Lanka, and Synapse.
- This is the second clan weapon that does not need a Forma in its construction.
- Hatches on the side of the Amprex slowly open up during firing, spreading vanes underneath. This animation is a visual indicator of the weapon's magazine capacity, with the vanes spreading out more the closer the magazine is to empty. The hatch closes upon reloading.
- This is the first weapon in Energy Lab whose duplication costs 50,000 credits.
- After Update 15.13, the chained beams were changed to be affected by Sinister Reach as well. As of Update 22.14, this is no longer the case.
