Eventide Ropecaster Description

This Carja Ropecaster specializes in tying down targets and firing Shock Ropes which inflict damage over time. It can be upgraded to improve its reload speed.

How to Use the Eventide Ropecaster

The Eventide Ropecaster is best used when fighting larger machines that are susceptible to Shock Damage. Great to use this weapon is to have it equipped at all times, then when you stumble across a flying Machine you’ll be able to fire a Binding Ropes at it to prevent it from moving away. Additionally, if the Machine is weak to Shock Damage, then use the Shock Ropes to tie the machine down as well as dealing elemental damage.
