Electron Cascade is a Tier Three Psionic Discipline that charges any Implant, ranged Energy Weapon or Powered Armor by 20% per point of PSI, up to the maximum allowed by Maintenance skill. It also fully charges a dead Power Cell.


  • This skill makes the Laser Pistol an attractive secondary weapon option for the Psionics character.
    It can be also useful for the Energy Weapons specialist to pick up in the mid-to-late game. Take advantage of this Power to recharge Powered Armor, which runs out of charge twice as fast as powered Implants do. Lastly, it can be used to charge up dead Power Cells.
