This article describes a Pixel Gun 3D weapon. If you're looking for the same weapon in Pixel Gun World, see High Voltage (PGW).

Danger-danger! High voltage! It appeared in 3018 and found its market quite easily. Even the tiniest charge will overload the entire augmentation system of your enemy.

—Weapon's description in Gallery

The High Voltage (formerly known as Tesla Generator and/or the Chain Thunderbolt) is a Special weapon introduced in the 5.3.0 update.

Description

It is an electric-flamethrower that emits electricity in close range. It has good damage, a very high fire rate, decent capacity, and average mobility.

Appearance

This weapon has a white body with a light blue battery meter above its pistol grip, the muzzle is a glowing light blue electrical sphere with an unjointed mechanical claw surrounding it. The clip is a small cube with an electrical symbol on it, decorated with lighter dots. Inside of the claws is an electrical pearl.

Performance

The High Voltage emits electricity/volts that can only damage opponents in close range. This gun acts very similarly to the Flaming Volcano and other flamethrowers, as it requires a close-mid range in order to do damage. It holds 65 volts in the clip, with an additional 65 in reserve. It can be maxed out to 135 volts in reserve ammo with a total of 200 volts.

When reloading, the player takes out the energetic clip and replaces it with another one. It has no delay mechanics.

Strategy

Tips

  • The best way to obtain kills with this weapon is to sneak up behind enemies or surprise them from around the corner. They usually won't react in time and you'll get the kill. You can also hide behind opaque, thin walls and use them to take out incoming enemies. 
  • Its attack range is ultimately short, so stay in small areas.
  • Avoid medium and long-range areas where you will get killed easily.
  • Use it to gradually weaken targets.

Counters

  • When an enemy holding this weapon approaches, run away and shoot it from afar.
  • Since the High Voltage has a charge time when the pack is inserted, use an assault rifle to take them down.
  • Pick off its user(s) from long ranges.
  • If you are encountered within medium-range areas, quickly rush up to the enemy before getting damaged quickly.

Recommended Maps

Equipment Setups

Use a range-combat weapon when your opponent tries to escape from you. It's really good to use when you're using the Voodoo Snowman when killing players.
