The Plasma Storm was an auto-targeting weapon manufactured by MegaCorp as an upgrade to the Plasma Coil. This devastating weapon shot an orb of plasma energy, which zapped nearby enemies with tendrils of searing electricity. The plasma orbs could ricochet off surfaces several times before dissipating.
The Plasma Storm was very useful for clearing out areas of small or medium enemies, usually only requiring 1 or 2 shots. Its usefulness stemmed from the fact that it could kill hordes of enemies without actually touching them—the electrical tendrils made short work of any foe unlucky enough to be within the plasmatic orb's disproportionately-large reach. The orb itself was extremely powerful.
- The orb made a different sound when it ricocheted in Up Your Arsenal than Going Commando.
- A weapon with the same effect as the Plasma Coil would be the Shock Rocket in Size Matters.
