This article describes a Pixel Gun 3D weapon. If you're looking for the same weapon in Pixel Gun World, see Apocalypse (PGW).

The Apocalypse is a Heavy weapon introduced in the 5.2.0 update in Pixel Gun 3D. It is the first form of the Apocalypse.


It is a long, light green barrel with a black handle hold towards the end. It also has a blue scope. There is a red target dot along the middle. It has been painted with a snake's mouth in the style of aircraft nose art.


It deals extraordinarily high damage, the lowest rate of fire in the game (A painful 11, but shown as 5 in earlier updates.), low capacity and low mobility.


  • Use this to damage groups of players, then finish them off with a rapid-fire weapon.
  • Since you are reloading constantly, you should try hitting and running.
  • Fire this at the enemy's feet for area damage effects.
  • If an opponent lives when you hit them, you should quickly switch to a fast-firing rifle or a weapon in the back-up category to finish them of with ease.


  • Try to avoid the rockets as much as possible, whether you dodge them or hide behind cover. Try to minimise damage.
  • Attack the user while they are reloading.
  • Avoid crowding when you encounter a user. This weapon is a good crowd controller.

Weapon Setups

Have a fast firing weapon along with it to finish off weakened enemies.


  • It is based on the AT4 rocket launcher .
  • This weapon was once previously called Apocalypse 3000.
  • It has the slowest fire rate the game, with a low 10 fire rate.
    • This weapon and upgrades' fire rate is actually 74, but because of its slow reload time, the fire rate on the stats show '10'.
  • It could also be referencing the forgotten game "Apocalypse 3000".
  • Along with the Apocalypse Up1 on the 8.0.0 update, the scope was moved from the back to the front.
  • This (the Apocalypse) and it's upgrades, the Grenade Launcher, Easter Bazooka (and upgrades), and the Firestarter are the only weapons that have 1 ammo.
  • It acts as the placeholder on weapons (mostly removed) lacking any appearance but remains its function.
