Tesla is a weapon that can be used in Black Paradox.

This weapon fires a ball of electric energy in front of the player, dealing damage on impact with an enemy or object, and then chaining damage to up to three additional enemies or objects (including destroyable mines and rockets fired by enemies) within close proximity of initial impact. Chained damage will only affect each target once, and will not "circle back" for additional hits on the same shot.

Proximity to the next target is gauged at each bounce rather than origin of initial impact, meaning, for example, shooting an enemy at the top of a column or at the front of a row of enemies will ensure the distance will not become so great that subsequent bounces fail to occur. Selective targeting is sometimes best in order to ensure the highest damage efficiency of this weapon.

When using this weapon, player movement is slowed while the Fire button is held.
