Eridian Weapons

Wiki did not provide information of the effects of these texts.

Note that flavor text for Eridian weapons is marked differently and applies to the entire class of alien weapon. Many of these descriptions may never be found on weapons in-game because another file has marked them as inactive

I feel like I'm gonna break this thing - [Eridian Lightning]
010011110100110101000111 - Means "OMG" in binary - [Eridian Cannon]
Getting near this thing makes your hair stand on end - [Eridian Shock Rifle]
Anybody need a light? - [Eridian Fire Storm]
Hold does what? - [Eridian Elemental Rifle]
No face shall go unmelted - [Eridian Acid Storm]
Pew Pew Pew! - [Eridian Blaster]
