The Archangel is a Sniper weapon introduced in the 13.5.0 update.

Appearance

It is a re-skin of the Tactical Bow.

It has a white/yellow finish with white bowstring and illuminated limbolts. It also features a yellow grip and yellow scope.

The arrow itself has black fletching with a white with yellow and black shaft and a light yellow arrowhead.

It is mostly 2 headshots kill to max-armoured players.

Strategy 

It has great damage, good fire rate, and an above average mobility.

Tips

  • It is effective against anyone using a deadly melee or a flamethrower.
  • Be very careful around wallbreak Snipers. If you miss your 1st shot, you will be in great trouble.
  • This is a great counter to the Railgun. Due to the Railgun's high recoil, you can easily punish the user if they misfire, which can be hard to do with other weapons.
    • Its great firerate also suitable for Sniper Tournament, as it does not need to reload.
  • The weapon is extremely accurate, as the crosshair never change.
  • Don't hold the fire button when using this weapon, as you won't be able to land a shot. Fire, wait until your crosshair is on the enemy, then shoot again. Otherwise, the reloading animation will mess up your aim. Another possible technique is to just constantly scope.
  • Land headshots or/and target weakened opponents for better arrow conserving.

Counters

  • Get up close, then attack using a deadly close quarter weapon, preferably Ghost Lantern or Soulstone.
  • Wallbreak Snipers perform better than this weapon in a sniper duel due to the wallbreak and better scope.
  • Attack the sniper from behind for best results.
  • Automatic firerate weapon gets the job done.

Weapon Setups

Other high damage or high fire rate weapons to help out with its DPS and for close range combat. You can also bring a weapon that slows the target such as Death Claws or Dual Cryo Pistols, so you can get a guaranteed hit with the Gadget Block.

Trivia 

  • This is one of two weapons with the ability to block gadgets, the other being the Void Ray Rifle.
  • This weapon might be a re-skin of the Magic Bow with a modified arrow and added glowing animations, but this is unlikely as it looks more like the Tactical Bow.
