A psychic insanity lance is a two-use artifact that can be equipped by pawns in the Utility slot. Once said pawn is drafted, it can be used to target a pawn within 35 tiles and within line of sight, and the target will instantaneously go berserk. Psychically deaf pawns (or anybody with 0% psychic sensitivity) can't be targeted.

Psychic Insanity lances can be purchased from Exotic Goods Traders or found in ancient shrines.

Usage

As it has a significantly smaller warmup time (just 0.5s vs 4.5s) and comparable range (35 vs 36), it can be useful for making pesky triple rocket launcher/doomsday rocket launcher raiders annihilate their companions. For best value, use it on enemies with durability enhancements such as go-juice, the tough trait, power armor, or a shield belt.

Version history

Prior to 1.2 it was a single-use artifact that could not be carried, and had to be activated by selecting a colonist, then right-clicking the artifact and selecting 'Activate' manually. It also had unlimited range and worked through walls.
