Electron Burster from Onslaught

Electron Bursters
were Plasma Minions that appeared primarily on Cryos. Incredibly annoying in large groups, these tiny annoyances could become lethal very quickly, if not dealt with.


Electron Bursters did not have a lore, because they did not appear on the Darkspore website.


  • The special elite version of the Electron Burster. It's likely known as the Hamster Monster.
  • Hamster Monster
  • Special elite from the template challenge
  • Meanwhile, in 2015...
Electron Bursters were medium-to long range fighters, attacking with lethal precision and speed. Their electrical discharges travelled instantly from the burster to the target, so even the fastest heroes were completely unable to avoid them. The best way to deal with Electron Bursters was to stack Resist Rating and attacking from range or drag the bursters to melee combat. The only backfire to the latter strategy were the Ghostly and Spiky Affixes from Elites. The Ghostly Affix could be ignored by Goliath though, as his basic attack was classed as an energy attack.


  • They had Wraith's feet and Blitz's hands..
  • There was also a special Elite version of this enemy, nicknamed "the Hamster Monster", only appearing if Electron Bursters were present on the level.
  • The Hamster Monster had Char's head.
  • At a glance, the Electron Burster was similar to Necro lieutenant Carrion Shambler with its armor removed.
