Lightning Shiv

Lightning Shiv is a weapon that can be bought from Shop. Weapons are primary damage dealers and most Characters can hold up to 6 weapons.

Lightning Shiv is a Melee Weapon. Melee weapon have two different attack types, thrust and swing, both are capable of hitting multiple enemies. Melee weapons' Range only increase or decrease by half the amount of your range stat. The attack speed of melee weapons depends on their range. Increasing the range slightly decreases the Attack Speed, but increases the area hit by the weapon. Negative range has the inverse effect.

Lightning Shiv

Whenever the Lightning shiv hits an enemy with the shiv, a lightning projectile is spawned, that targets another random enemy anywhere on the map. You can spawn multiple projectiles with a single attack if you hit multiple targets.
