Hello, I am David Andersson, and welcome to the guide for creating a very powerful weapon that will one shot most basic enemies.

I based it on the shotgun which you get a blue print for in chapter 4, but you can build it from scratch from this description. If you don’t have the resources to build the different items I have produced a video for farming which will allow you to get resources quickly and easily.

Frame, Upper and Lower Tool and Tip
First use a heavy standard frame. Then select the military engine tool as the upper tool and a telemetry spike for the lower tool. Go for the precision tip with the upper tool, which basically makes it a sniper rifle, and the diffraction torus for the lower tool, which makes it like a machine gun.
Upper and Lower Attachments
For the upper attachment go for damage support, which increases your damage and your partners should you play in co-op, and for the electric charge for the lower tool, which adds a damage over time bonus to your shots.
For the upper tool upgrade circuits use three fire rate and damage buffs. How much they buff depends on what you can build, but go for the maximum available for you. Currently I have +2 of each. For the fourth upgrade circuit go for the increased clip decreased reload. I found that I didn’t need more than four bullets per clip so I wouldn’t use more than one upgrade circuit on an increased clip. Also, if you want to replace an upgrade circuit the previous upgrade circuit will be destroyed and you won’t get your resources back so be careful with experimenting.
The lower tool is just there to take care of small enemies who die in one shot anyway so you don’t need any damage buffs on it. But if you use a reload upgrade circuit it will also speed up the reload of the upper tool. Go for the increased reload for all four upgrade circuits.
This weapon will one shot almost all enemies you will encounter, except boss enemies and enemies that can’t be killed. I also liked the conic dispenser as the upper tool tip which transforms this weapon into a shotgun. You won’t be able to kill enemies in one hit consistently, but you have some extra bullets per clip and it is a lot more fun. But in the end the precision tip is the better tip making the game much easier.
