How to Use the Shock Tripcaster
The Shock Tripcaster is the first weapon of its class you will come across in the game. They are mostly ideal for setting up ambushes, since it requires you to shoot twice to set up the tripwire. This weapon only has a single ammo type, the Shock Tripwire, so it’s best to use it on those weak or neutral to Shock. Of course, since it is one of the weaker weapons, it’s a good idea to keep its use to smaller, weaker machines.
