BioWare is keeping the Cerberus Network alive with a steady stream of free goodies -- for those who purchased a new copy of Mass Effect 2, anyway.
The latest DLC is a new heavy weapon called the "Arc Projector." No clue? It shoots lightning bolts. Okay, so BioWare has a more accurate description than that:
The Arc Projector ionizes targets with a non-visible laser to ready them for a high-voltage electrical attack. As the lightning-like bolt hits its first target, a sophisticated auto-targeting system paints succeeding targets with the ionization laser, allowing the electricity to take the path of least resistance and arc between them. An entire enemy strike team can be shocked to death with a few pulls of the trigger. Careful aiming will also allow the user to arc shots to nearby explosives as well.
The charge time is a modest 2 seconds, which is a tad less than the Blackstorm's 3 seconds. Then again, the latter shoots black holes...
Anyway, the Arc Projector is currently available for download via Cerberus Network. May come in handy during your Insanity playthrough.
