The Thunder Shot is a secondary weapon in Metal Slug 7/XX.


This weapon creates a strong pulse of electricity that auto targets on any possible enemy and hits almost instantly, being capable of piercing through armor and hitting multiple targets at once with a single shot. All of this come at the cost of very low ammo.

In Metal Slug XX's Survival Mode, this weapon, along with Enemy Chaser, isn't used. It is instead replaced with steel hand grenades.

According to Metal Slug Attack, this weapon was invented by Midori.
