Cultivate a meaningful relationship with this deceptively simple battery-powered pistol. The Plinx rewards attention and investment from the wise.

Plinx is a Corpus semi-automatic, battery-powered laser pistol with the ability to auto-refill its ammo passively similar to the Cycron.png Cycron. Possessing excellent critical chance and critical multiplier stats, this comes at the cost of a low status chance and very low ammunition.

Characteristics[]

  • This weapon deals primarily DmgPunctureSmall64.png Puncture damage and has innate DmgFireSmall64.png Heat damage.
  • Does not use ammo pickups; ammo regenerates over time.
    • Has a 0.8 second delay after the weapon stops firing before regenerating ammo. Then, regenerates 20 ammo per second; takes 0.5 seconds to regenerate a fully depleted battery excluding the delay.

Advantages:

Disadvantages:

  • Shots have limited range of 100 meters.
  • Does not benefit from mods that increase maximum ammo, due to lack of an ammo pool.
  • Does not receive benefit from reload-triggered mods such as Mod TT 20px.png Pressurized Magazine.
  • Normal Attack
    • Below average magazine
    • Low effective fire rate
    • Below average damage
    • Very low status chance
    • Below average disposition

Acquisition[]

The Plinx's blueprint can be purchased from the Market.

Tips[]

  • Because the 10 shots count as part of a single magazine rather than an ammo pool, mods like Mod TT 20px.png Trick Mag have no effect. Magazine increasing mods like Mod TT 20px.png Ice Storm, Mod TT 20px.png Slip Magazine, or Mod TT 20px.png Tainted Clip could be used instead but these mods have far less potency.
    • In addition, the recharge rate is also fast enough to the point where increasing this recharge speed and delay has diminishing returns, offering little effect at the cost of a slot.

Trivia[]

  • The name likely refers to "plinking," a slang term for recreational target shooting.
  • The weapon’s gameplay is most likely modelled after the Derringer type of pistol, known for typically having a small caliber and low ammo capacity, which is reflected in its stats. However, the Lato Prime is more visually similar to the Derringer Pistol in design than the Plinx.
  • The Plinx is famously featured during the TennoCon/2021 showcase of The New War, as it is the only available gun to Corpus engineer Veso-R who, commenting on the weapon as rather unremarkable, has to equally rely on his command of proxies in order to comply with his superior Alad V's orders.
    • In the second part of The New War quest itself, the gun indeed gets used by Veso himself.
