|A weapon so shocking, it might even be called infamous. Bust this out when you want to zap your enemies... or just make your fur stand on end!|
— In-game description[src]
This weapon, true to its origin, has the capability to electrocute enemies with each hit, which makes them unable to hit you while they're being electrocuted. In spite of electrocuting enemies, it still takes several hits to defeat them.
- In inFAMOUS 2, there is a downloadable content that allows the protagonist, Cole MacGrath, to wield Sly's cane instead of his normal Amp.
- The amp is based on the 24K Gold Amp, which was actually DLC for inFAMOUS 2.
