The TC24 can fire four short range explosive projectiles before having to reload.— In-game description

The TCN24 is an unlockable primary weapon for the Technician class. It fires energetic projectiles that explode on impact or in midair after about two seconds with a small area of effect. It deals roughly half the damage and has a much smaller blast radius than the Thumper, but its rate of fire and clip size is increased dramatically.

A midair kill with the TC24 will earn the Air Mail award.

  • The TC24 could be considered a midway between the TCN4 SMG and the Thumper, as it is effective at both outdoor and indoor combat, but not as effective as either specialized weapon. As a result, technicians who expect to be moving between indoor and outdoor combat often (as is common among technicians), will find that the TC24 compliments their play style.
  • The TC24, with it's straightline projectile and small radius, is functionally similar to the Plasma Gun, and may be more useful to players skilled with plasma weapons.
  • Because of its air burst, it handles similarly to a light version of the Titan Launcher.
