Basic Summary Edit
The Kaizen Lightning is a semi-auto sniper rifle that deals Shock damage. Some people can say that's it's essentially an improved version of the CM 800 Jupiter, with cheaper ammo cost, higher damage and pierce, and quicker reload time, at the cost of capacity, ROF, and lightness.
Developer: Kaizen Corp.
Playing Style Edit
The CM 800 Jupiter was designed for long range crowd takeouts, making it a somewhat viable support weapon. The increased damage and the ability to augment Overclocked makes Kaizen Lightning more useful for crowd controlling from a wider variety of distances. The massively improved crowd controlling ability is only supported by the properties of Shock weapons, fast reload, decent movement penalty, and high pierce.
Recommended Augs Edit
Deadly:The first choice for nearly all weapons. Allows it to deal more initial damage and lets it kill faster.
Capacity: Another helpful aug, since the clip can be drained in a matter of seconds. Allows it to shoot longer and kill more enemies before reload is needed.
Adaptive: A viable 4th aug. Allows it to kill off Energy/Shock resisting zombies easier. Makes it more versatile. It's also a crucial aug for Nightmare Mode.
Enlarged: Increases the range of the "Shock" damaging enemies that are further away from the zombie initially struck..
Piercing: Since all Shock weapons have the damage multiplied by the amount of enemies hit at once by the electricity. This is limited by the pierce of the weapon. Increasing the max pierce also increases the piercing damage of Shock weapons, bringing with it massive crowd controlling potential.
