The Tesla Rifle is the Accord Engineer's signature weapon. Its default primary is to fire a short range, accurate beam, which deals damage on impact to its target. The longer a target is focused by the beam, the greater the damage done per tick and the more the charge bar fills. The charge bar drains while the player is not firing, and drains faster if the player fires but does not hit a target. Its secondary fire drains ammo to repair machines or steal jet energy from hostile players.
