Reclaimed Piston Information

“A chunk of scrap that fell from decommissioned rocketry components during their disposal. While not exactly a CREO tool of any notable function, it nevertheless has a solid heft and could be used for basic self-defense.”

  

 

Reclaimed Piston Location/ Where to find

  • You are issued the Reclaimed Piston when you start the game. 

Reclaimed Piston Notes & Tips

  • While it doesn't do a whole lot of damage, it is enough to get you through the initial starting area - if you use a sprinting slide-attack against the cutter drones, you can kill most of them in one hit.
  • Does not have enough Impact force to stagger enemies early on - plan on switching to the ASTir Vibro-Cutter or ASTir SpectreBite as soon as you can.
  • Need 60% more impact to reach High Impact.

      Actually, I found it good for cutting off limbs later on in the game since the energy gain does not depend on base damage, so you can cut off something of every enemy you encounter.

        so it's basically a huck of metal on a stick ... just give a rock or something that will do better than this.
