DescriptionEditThe Shock Rod is, in many ways, similar to the Katana. It deals slightly more damage than the latter in most cases, but can still give a one-shot kill. However, instead of being able to deflect bullets, the Shock Rod's special is its ability to lessen enemies' damage. It has a certain percentage chance to reduce an enemy's damage output (similar to the EMP), making killing enemies all the more easier. A more than useful melee weapon, it should not be taken lightly, as it can be as deadly as the Katana, even without the ability to reflect shots.
Recommended use with: Pretty much anything. As it is basically a version of the Katana with all the values slightly increased, except hit rate. However, do not underestimate it.
Recommended use against: Medium armored enemies. Sometimes well defended opponents take 2 hits to kill, giving them time to kill you. This is made less dangerous by the damage reducing ability, but it is still something to be wary of.
