The Needler Information

  • This weapon fires infinitely refilling, tiny flechettes coated in one of three potent chemicals. Rid O' Life is a deadly, green liquid that slowly damages the target. Caustolerene is a corrosive, yellow goo that slowly eats away at a target's armor. Debilerol is a numbing, purple liquid that slows the target. The potency of these chemicals scale with the wielder's Science skill. The wielder can cycle through the chemicals by reloading.
