What Kind Of Weapon Is The Volt?

We'll defer this one to the words of Respawn itself: "The first energy-based SMG to see regular use in the Frontier, the Volt allows its operator to fire a salvo of energy-based ammunition, decreasing drag and making it possible to hit multiple targets within a short window."

Essentially, it's an R99 that fires Energy Ammo. And it's brutal.

The Volt takes Energy Ammo, and its high rate of fire means you'll go through it quickly. Really quickly. So make sure you stock up.

Other than that, grab one of the new Extended Energy Magazines, a barrel stabiliser and a stock.

You'll need a short-ranged sight too - look out for a Digital Threat, but anything is better than ironsights.
