Trivia[]

  • Isaac uses a Bolas Gun as part of his moveset in PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royale.
  • A Tesla Core with a Precision tip will function similarly to a Plasma Core with a Precision tip, shot produced from Tesla Core travels slower, does slightly less damage but features an ability to pierce through multiple targets.
