The Alien Shuriken Thrower is a Heavy weapon introduced in the 15.7.0 update. It can be obtained from the Christmas Invasion Battle Pass.

Description

The weapon is a large alien themed shuriken launcher. It has good damage, a medium fire rate, a decent capacity, and a slow mobility. It has the ability to rocket jump and 2-3 shot someone.

Appearance

The season's main color is purple with a neon green outline, with the actual shurikens outline to be a neon blue. A small alien energy cube is held between the butt of the gun and the shuriken itself.

Performance

When the fire button is pressed, the weapon will launch a purple shuriken. This shuriken has travel time, and will explode upon impact, dealing damage to enemies caught its blast radius.

When reloading, the user will eject the used energy cube and insert a new one.

Strategy

It has good damage, a medium fire rate, a decent capacity, and a slow mobility. It has the ability to rocket jump and 2-3 shot someone.

  • Get relatively close to the player and then attempt to aim at their feet. If an enemy is still, aim your hit marker over their head for a 2 shot kill.
  • If you are in a hallway, shoot this weapon down it to hit enemies.
  • Try at your best to aim for an enemy's foot area, as it is difficult to dodge it.
  • Use this up to medium ranges, since it has travel time, though faster.

Counters

  • As this weapon's projectile is very thin and difficult to get hit with, snipe the opponent off from long range or use a heavy weapon like Big Buddy (PG3D) to stop their bullet rain.
  • Attack the user from long range, but beware that this weapon has a fast bullet travel.

Equipment Setups

This weapon should be treated as to not be used against full armored players. Keep a long range weapon in your arsenal as well as this weapon. Keep a weapon that sprays bullets to weaken your enemy before finishing them off.
