The Tek Shoulder Cannon is a Weapon in the Expansion Pack Genesis: Part 1.

Overview[edit | edit source]

The Tek Shoulder Cannon can be equipped as a shield and powered by Element. It is unlocked by completing the Corrupted Master Controller (Beta and above). The Tek Shoulder Cannon can be configured to have different fire patterns such as normal, rapid, and overcharge and will protect the survivor from threats with almost pinpoint accuracy.

Similar to a turret, the Tek Shoulder Cannon can be set up to automatically fire at its intended target.

The Tek Shoulder Cannon can be configured, and that configuration will stay even after unequipping. All of these firing modes have tradeoffs.

  • Standard: Standard fire has a wide target scan with a medium range shot, less likely to hit target at longer range. Reloads after every shot.
  • Rapid: Rapid fire has a massive target scan with with low range shots. Shoots multiple projectiles at a rapid pace, but will overheat quickly.
  • Overcharge: Overcharge fire has a narrow target scan with a very long range shot. Has the fastest projectile shot like Tek Railgun, but has a very long reload.

Notes[edit | edit source]

  • Players cannot access the radial menu if a pet is mounted on their shoulder. The pet must be tossed before it will appear.
