Archotech arm

Archotech arm

An artifical arm built by an archotech. It's strong enough to crush a thick hardwood branch in its hand, and precise enough to write a sonnet on a grain of rice. It looks and feels like natural flesh, but it's harder to damage than plasteel. Even if it is harmed, it repairs itself over time. Its internal workings are a mystery to all human minds.

Archotech arms are an arm replacement that is added in Beta 19. They are more powerful then their regular bionic counterpart, providing 150% efficiency.

Archotech arms do 14 damage per attack. For unarmed combat, this is somewhat high, compared to the 8 damage from fists and 12 from bionic arms. This is only outmatched by the power claw, which does 22 damage and inflicts bleeding wounds, or dedicated implant weapons from the Royalty DLC such as the Venom talon.

Analysis

Since the game gives a greater weighting on the more capable part when calculating manipulation, with it contributing to 75% of a pawn's manipulation capability, installing a single archotech arm increases manipulation by 38%, and a second increases it by 12% to the expected 150%.
