How does paralysis work?

That’s also my understanding, electroshock has no link with paralysis, it is used to stun. I don’t think it’ the same equation than for paralysis.

For the lance, never had it, I supposed it is unlocked by some research. There’s a hammer with similar properties. And there’s a few other stuff with electroshock, as Infiltrator skill hit from behind.

The “Phoenix Shock Lance” comes with a Phoenix Point research that is unlocked by having:

  • Anu Berserker research
  • NJ Technician research

But it is worthless:

  • 100 damage (Marduk is 140)
  • 180 shock (Marduk is also 180)
  • 2 AP … like Marduk
