Anything you'd like to say about the guy, ping me (TheTimesweeper#5727) on the ror2 modding discord or the enforcer discord ( I'll be taking a close look at feedback.


Based on Tesla Trooper from Red Alert 2, but with SkeletorChampion coming in and saying "nah I'm model him to fit RoR2, and look awesome, and my dong is enormous".
Tesla Trooper is a mid-range bruiser on his own, and an all-range monster when he builds his Tesla Tower.


SkeletorChampion - Made the character model, which kicked off the mod. Without him, the mod wouldn't exist.
Violet Chaolan - wwise sound help
SweeperSecret - icons, <3
Mr.Bones - mastery skin
Moffein - consult, savior
DeegerDill - consult
Westwood Studios - sounds, inspiration

Thanks to the lovely reception from the community, including all the great feedback and ideas c:

Future Plans (that I may or may not get to)

  • Alt skills
  • Achievements
  • custom lightningorb effects (help)
  • improved animations (help)
  • Scepter and vr and all those fun stuffs

for no particular reason I made a cool skin for minecraft check it out


1.1.1 buncha tweaks

  • ally zap no longer does damage, fixing pennies exploit
  • zapping allies with m1 now ends the move earlier
    • so accidentally hitting allies doesn't eat up a full duration m1
  • m1 zap now travels instantly
  • slightly lowered m1 attack duration
    • not enough to affect any balance concerns, just to hopefully feel a little smoother
  • fixed m1 not blooming crosshair for clients
  • lowered lingering m2 cast time
  • added very WIP m1 alt skill under cursed config


  • Added proper Mastery skin, complete with a unique tower
    • thanks Mr.Bones!
  • Added Scepter Upgrade
    • but by accident I did exactly lysate cell, so I'm open to any better ideas
  • Limited lysate cell to 1 additional tower, similar to engi
    • stacking simultaneous towers turned out way too strong for a green rarity item
    • truthfully it should be 0 but I want the opportunity for multiple towers in some capacity
    • unlimited stacking behavior can be reverted in config
  • Fixed Utility's cooldown to start after the move is done
  • Fixed missing tower sounds in multiplayer
  • lowered sound distance so they don't dominate the battlefield
    • let me know if they're too quiet now
  • Removed dependency on FixPluginTypesSerialization


  • accidentally cranked up m1 distance way too high woops


  • fixed tower getting taken by void infestors
  • bumped up tracking range to help deal with xi construct
  • adjusted m1 visual to make separate arcs a little more visible
  • added config to disable tower item displays if you find them too silly
  • added Aetherium item displays
  • added item displays just for Tinker's Satchel mustaches
