Uses a flat fan like spread of pellets to aid targeting and hitting multiple opponents
Attaching mods to your weapon will adjust the appearance of those areas.
Important Note: These stats are not 100% confirmed, they may need to be adjusted based on bonus rolls or mods. Especially the DMG values, since Power Rating and Rarity now affect them.

25 most recent dev posts that mention "Thunder"
9 years ago (March 18, 2014, 5:30 pm)Also, I know they have been brought up before, Trick said they should be in the loot table. But I still have not seen any of the base Volge Weapons (VOT Volge Typhoon/Thunderer Pistol/Lightning...
9 years ago (March 19, 2014, 9:22 am)Do sluggers really do better in PvP than fraggers and breachers? My rolling thunder breacher is not much less accurate than a slugger, with a falloff mod its range is not much shorter, it does more...
9 years ago (March 31, 2014, 7:43 am)Keep in mind that mag increases apply to base values. So if you have a rolling thunder SAW modded with a high cap mag III, it'll have 85 * (1 + 0.5 + 0.15) = 140 bullets in the mag.
9 years ago (April 9, 2014, 10:02 pm)Interested in these ones bro if they are still available.
9 years ago (April 19, 2014, 8:21 am)No, accuracy does work on shotguns. Compare a rolling thunder shotgun modded with a scatter scope with the same, unmodded shotgun. There's a big difference in the size of the reticle. But a -0.5...
9 years ago (April 22, 2014, 4:13 am)Thunder all the way, yes. More DPS than any other LMG, and more accuracy / less recoil than any of them as well. SAWs do hit harder crits, but with that awful recoil that's only good for something...
9 years ago (April 26, 2014, 9:43 am)Why does EGO scaling of weapons use such an irregular function? Why couldn't you just make it plain linear or polynomial?
9 years ago (May 6, 2014, 10:13 pm)Hey everyone - I'll ask about this. Thanks for the reports. :o
9 years ago (May 7, 2014, 8:02 pm)I'm back! :o I brought this up with the team and we confirmed your findings that our previous patch in January did not address this issue.
9 years ago (May 7, 2014, 8:20 pm)Could you look into the missing VOT Heavy Plasma Repeater as well? This was a sniper rifle, that was supposed to be in the Arkbreaker weapon pool, but we still don't have it in game.
9 years ago (May 8, 2014, 5:41 am)And seeing that Thunderer pistols and Lightning Rifles come with nanos now I don't see why we can't get Clustershots and Couriers with nanos again as well. All of these weapons shoot explosive...
9 years ago (May 14, 2014, 11:05 pm)That is Trion's style with patch notes :) they are famous for leaving stuff out. I can get a hold of a white weapon on my second character (preferably a Thunder) and compare the data with the other...
9 years ago (May 14, 2014, 11:12 pm)I would run some WMs tonight regardless, but I have to study, so probably won't have much time. If someone gets a Volge Typhoon (not X-AR)/Lightning Rifle/Thunderer in orange please post a pic!
9 years ago (May 15, 2014, 5:57 am)Back :). Though unfortunately, I wasn't able to get a Thunder around the level I wanted before leveling myself out of the range, and much less a Thunder with no nano like the one we tested :(.
9 years ago (May 16, 2014, 9:23 pm)Bump. They talked about this today on the stream, said they just got reports about this after Arktech Revolution :p, apparently they didn't see when this thread was made though.
9 years ago (May 16, 2014, 10:06 pm)It looks like they should be dropping.
9 years ago (May 18, 2014, 4:52 am)Interesting that they finally added the 3 weapons. Even more interesting that they still claim that the vot heavy plasma repeater drops when there is no evidence (again) that it does. It's not like I...
9 years ago (May 18, 2014, 5:14 pm)I have seen them. Sorry, do not have pics :), but I was wanting to see proof like you and I have seen several in peoples loadouts when inspecting them so they are in the game now.
9 years ago (June 4, 2014, 9:31 pm)Happened to my Extra Life Machine Gun too. After getting my 1.10 Fire Rate roll the fire rate on the Thunder is still 14.0 (should be 15.4 after the 10% bonus).
9 years ago (June 5, 2014, 4:19 am)Yep, my Extra Life Thunder is missing it's orange fire rate roll now, frustrating. I sent a message to Kiwi about it (when my fire rate roll wasn't working) but I was pretty much told to get in line...
9 years ago (June 6, 2014, 8:13 pm)After my ticket got a response today, telling me they would do nothing to help me, I'm reporting this here. My reports of this in game, PMs to the team, and forum posts aren't getting anywhere so......
9 years ago (June 10, 2014, 2:59 am)Just an update on this thread. I finally got some help from support, they gave me another EL thunder exactly how I had it modded and mastered before upgrading, and refunded my Arkforge :).
9 years ago (June 10, 2014, 3:20 pm)It is wonderful to hear that you were able to get fixed up! Thanks to the reports from our players, our Dev team is still investigating, and working to resolve the issues that occurred with the...
9 years ago (June 12, 2014, 4:52 pm)Hi, I'll take the Rolling Thunder Tachyon Laced Extender IV, if still available
9 years ago (August 12, 2014, 10:55 am)They did do a buff for the Thunder at the same time the SAW caught the nerf. Thunder went from 75 Mag and 10 Fire Rate to a 120 Mag and 14 Fire Rate. Disruptor also got its delay between bursts...
9 years ago (August 22, 2014, 6:19 pm)Here is my feedback from the other thread
9 years ago (September 4, 2014, 9:51 pm)Thanks for the report, Skepticck. I was able to verify and track down the problem. There was a single invalid weapon on the lock box loot tables, a rare tier VBI LM-43 Thunder. If you got lucky (or...
9 years ago (September 5, 2014, 1:13 am)Updating PTS again in 30 minutes:
9 years ago (September 22, 2014, 10:51 pm)New screens are up in the original patch note message. Only major differences are the weapon mastery experience is now correct and the Thunder is using the right image now.
8 years ago (September 1, 2015, 1:59 am)I won't. :) I want to leave it up to the players who find them to share them out. They put in the effort to earn them and I don't want to steal their thunder.
5 years ago (July 21, 2018, 3:11 am)Feel the thunderous roar of enemies approaching in the Rolling Blackout event from July 23 to August 6 for the original Defiance. Get ready for the storm ahead, we’re forecasting Arkfalls to be fully...
