NOTE: Italic refers to the base ability of this augment


  • Upon release, Tesla Link used arcing electricity as the link animation, as shown on its card image. Update 15.2 changed the animation to resemble lasers instead.
  • Used to have a bug where links would often stay in the game forever, although invisible, damaging enemies who walked past where they used to be. This was eventually fixed over 2 years later, in Hotfix 19.3.2


  • Sometimes Teslas will refuse to link for clients even in positions where it should be able to.
