The Thumper DX is an unlockable secondary weapon for the Soldier class. The DX, being a variant of the Thumper D, fires an arcing projectile that explodes on contact with any surface, or after one second. Compared to the Thumper D, the DX does more damage, but has a slightly smaller explosion radius.

- Soldiers who are able to get consistent direct hits with the Thumper D will likely find the DX variant to be a better choice. The Thumper DX does a mere 70 less damage on a direct hit than the Spinfusor. Unlike the spinfusor, however, the high burst damage of the DX can be paired with the high damage per second of either of the assault rifles, an often deadly combination.
